Soundless Action Prana only mutes noises made by you. So if you smash a window with a rock that would be totally silent, but if you threw that rock at a window everyone would hear it.

ESSENCE:

Personal: 13/13
Peripheral: 33/33


Remember, spending motes from your Peripheral Essence will start to flare your anima, which makes stealth difficult.

I'd make you roll for stealth but I think that'd be more of a formality ::)

You prowl the rooftop, following the trail as silently as you can. Ajax got the hint the third time you made a throat cutting gesture and is currently shivering and waiting for you a few roofs back beneath a headless lion statue.
Your thunderbird is currently balanced on a thermal, a black speck against the stars.
You creep through the shadow of a wall until you spot it, a dark shape hunched over something ahead.
A ninja, bent double to read the tracks.
It's at that moment that a second figure falls from the wall, bringing their elbow down hard on their head, slamming it into the roof with a sickening crunch.
Now that, that is pretty much what you were taught to do.
Except you were taught to check for witnesses just a little more carefully.

You say/do? Also I think that we should wait for Cab or Cat in a post or two. We don't want to get too far ahead.

3 successes!

You spot momentary flickers of light on the wall ahead. Moonlight reflecting off knives. No sooner have you processed that thought than there's a pair of sharp clanging noises as the ambush ninja jerks left then right and blades bounce off the stonework.
The ninja catches both knives behind their back and parries a third projectile as their three attackers vault over, slide under and swing around a lion dog statue.

 ::)

8 successes! You are possibly the BEST ninja!

You blur forward, keeping a pillar between you and them as a brutal knife fight begins. At this point you doubt they'd notice you if you waved the Ledaal flag in their faces. The loner is putting up a remarkable defense, dodging, parrying and at one point spin-kicking a crouching gargoyle into a foe, crushing them flat.
You slide into the gargoyle's place, completely indistinguishable in the darkness and watch as a gut kick flattens the loner against the wall.

Wait for the ninjas to tire each other out before making a move

The loner hits the wall with a grunt and brings their hands up twice to parry a blades from their right and ducks a kick from their left only to catch a knee from their right and have to stagger out of the way of another blade from the left. They swipe at the thighs of the one on the left, only to catch a cut on the arm from the right.

This will be over soon.
