[AW] Watch out the last step is a doosey
#1
Grynn was seated in the grass of the training area her hand on a thick piece of tree. She was busy placing the final touches on her training tool. It was not official for battle but its weight and balance here good for training. She'd grow accustom to it and then make herself one for real or go to freetown to find one.

Grynn stood after double checking to be sure it was secure. The last thing she needed was to drop the large stone head on her foot, or god forbid launch it at someone. She lifted it resting it on her shoulder both hands firmly planted on the handle. She smiled proud of her work as she moved towards a few trees.

The Knight woman had set up some wood pillars, atop a few were some old broken clay pots that she had found. After this though they would be no more. She brought with her a bag of crabapples, they were not large but atleast gave her something to smash into oblivion.

Shifting her weight she moved the large mallet from her shoulder. Now was the time to get acquainted with the weight and feel. She was worried it was a larger weapon that she may not handle it well but this was only one of several weapons she wanted to learn. She held a strong pose and just a normal swing nothing fancy just to gauge its weight and power of a swing.

She huffed as she felt the strain of the weight. She moved this time towards a pot and smiled. Her grip strong as she drew up her weapon. Her downward swing a bit clumsy as she was still getting used to the feel. Her motion much like that of using an axe she came down upon the pot hearing it shatter into nothingness. The wood stand creaked under the force as Grynn lifted the enlarged hammer from the stand looking to see. Now any clay pot should fear her.

Training month had come upon them all too quickly for comfort. Despite the fact that she was growing more and more benevolent with her practices with her rope dart, Clara had not, altogether, pieced how she was going to use her weapon and her knowledge of poisons altogether at once. She knew that the worst part about the rope dart was that it could be used with a rather sharp point to scratch or blind an opponent. She'd actually seen that method used when she was younger and her father had first started teaching her how to use it against her enemies or even just as a defense against those that could cause her harm. Quiet, contemplative eyes found their way along the border of the training ring, her fingers flinching lightly as she traced their padded tips over the sharp metal of her newly fashioned rope dart.

Even if she had a training partner, someone to spar with, she probably wouldn't have used this particular set. There were two of them now, one that she had had Lorenzo sharpen for her, the other that she'd had all along and had been using since she'd been in the pack. They were both here with her. One in her hands, the other off to the side. Despite her desire to learn how to fight using the sharp point, she didn't feel that it would be much different than learning how to wrap one's weapon about another's. It was often used as a form of defense but it was also a brutal attack tool when only one side of it was used in battle. Fortunately, she liked using both sides, though even that was a test against her better knowledge. Out of the corner of her eye, she caught sight of a moving form and quickly turned her gaze toward it, only to surprisingly find a female appearance in the midst of a battle with herself and a couple of pots.

Curious, more than anything else, she rose from her position and moved in that direction. It took only a few moments for her to step into place off to the side so that she wasn't in the way, her driftwood colored eyes matching pace with the swing that the Knight girl at the other side of the weapon, which appeared to be a hammer, offered.

ooc here! [000]



"Speaking." Thinking.

Grynn wiped her forehead as she placed the stone mallet to the ground. She almost wanted to laugh but to use a real metal one would take more power. She huffed as she leaned on it looking at the shattered bits of human pottery. She groaned as she thought about lifting the thing again. She would need to work more on her arms and upper body. Though in the end was this really the weapon she wanted. She huffed as she looked at Clara.

A smile laced her maw as she looked at the woman. Hey you out training today too? She asked as she spoke slowly still slightly panting from the strength it took to move the mallet. She was still on the edge of wanting a nice one or giving it up and choosing a smaller weapon. She waited a moment golden eyes looking at Clara.

Falls crisp air blew over the land causing the browning grass to tip. Soon snow would cover the earth and the process would start all over again of melting growing and dieing. Grynn would be another year older and would anything really change? What would she do within Casa or within the brotherhood?
