I hope I'm using this right...

Hello, my name is Arslan, and
I was wondering, is anyone here good with blades?  Mostly, knives and daggers?

Since I don't have my sword, all I can use is what I find it this place, but I'm still learning and can only do so much on my own.  I'd really like to try to find a teacher of some form, though I'm not sure what I could offer in repayment.  I'm sure something could be figured out, though.

Please let me know if you're willing to teach me, and thank you in advance to whoever responds.

So you wish to learn how to use a sword? You have come to the right person.

[Oh great, that guy... Arslan will try to keep any 'oh god why you' out of his tone]

Dagger or knife, whichever you want to call it. My sword was taken away when I arrived.

What good will it do me when I only have knives available here at the present time?

You are thinking too small, boy. You cannot become a proper ruler if you continue to worry about what you have now.

[There is an audible sigh]

No, I am not thinking small. Although I would like to continue practicing my swordsmanship, and would not be adverse to doing so, I'm looking at the here and now. What good will it do me to practice with a sword, when the item I have at hand for defense is a knife?

Who said you cannot get a sword?

I can use a sword, but not really well enough to teach.

But if you ever want to learn the bow, I'd be happy to help.

Date: 2011-01-03 08:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I see. You're an archer, then?

Date: 2011-01-04 06:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sceptered-isle.livejournal.com
Yes. I'm much better with that than with a blade. And a bow is easier to get anyway.

Date: 2011-01-04 06:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Maybe. I have always been trained with a blade though.

Date: 2011-01-04 09:00 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sceptered-isle.livejournal.com
Are there places here to get a sword? I haven't noticed any proper forges...

Date: 2011-01-05 12:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I heard someone could make them.

I won't teach.

But I will spar.

Date: 2011-01-03 11:00 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Even that would be helpful. Training by oneself is only so effective.

Date: 2011-01-03 11:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] diaf-askeladd.livejournal.com
Yeah. Not enough people here know how to use a blade.

Let me know when you want to fight.

Date: 2011-01-03 11:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
It seems like it.

At present, I only have a knife I took from the kitchen, but I'll be looking into getting a sword. Whenever you have time is good, but I have to attend this school thing.

Date: 2011-01-04 01:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] diaf-askeladd.livejournal.com
I fight with knives too. Don't worry about it.

...I have to go to it too. Waste of time. I can fight you there, if we can get away with it.

Date: 2011-01-04 02:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Somehow, I doubt they'd like that. Perhaps after school in the next day or two, however? There's a few places around, or the park even.

....I don't pretend to be good enough to teach, and I also lack my blade, but I will do what I can to help, sir Arslan. This place could always use more experienced warriors. My name is Jeanne d'Arc; would you like to meet somewhere?

Date: 2011-01-04 01:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Any help is appreciated. I would like to meet if you do not feel it would be troublesome to do so, Miss Jeanne.

Date: 2011-01-05 03:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] theguided.livejournal.com
There's no need to call me "miss", good sir. Just Jeanne. Will your house be all right, to start? Better that than wandering about in the park or some such until we find each other....

Date: 2011-01-05 04:24 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
That should be okay.

[There's a short pause]

Though I should warn you about my... Well, the guy who's been assigned as my Father. He's Death. As in the old legend versions, full skeleton and all.

[Better to warn her than Bill to answer the door and scare her, especially as he has no idea if Jeanne's met Death at all.]

Date: 2011-01-05 04:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
He's... Well, he's Death, for some place called the Discworld. Anyway, he doesn't seem intent on killing anyone, and is a rather pleasant fellow so there's nothing to worry about. Just, his appearance could probably be frightening if you didn't expect it.
