Adam: He took out his weapon, a sword, and clenched it with his hand then relaxed his hand for a second looking as if he wasn't about to attack then swung at Jian's side hoping to surprise him.
Jian: Jian winces in pity as Adam's strike lands woefully short due to the fact that he is still way up in boughs of the tree. Not yet ready to lay siege to his seemingly hapless adversary, Jian contents himsef to mischievously leaping from tree to tree, creating light tremors with each dainty landing. As he employs this juvenile entertainment, he keeps a weather eye down below at Adam to see what he attempts to do next.
Adam: He smirked as he realised Jian had fallen for his simple diversion he shadowtravelled into a secluded place as he summoned an undead on the next tree Jian was going to land on as Adam could easily see the pattern of his opponents jumping skills, and made the undead climb onto the branch and stands on the place Adam guessed Jian will land on as he seemed to be jumping in the same area on the branch and then climbed a tree behind Jian and attacked him from behind by jumping off the branch and swinging at his back.
Jian: Jian descends onto his latest arboreal destination only to see that he has been forced into an extremely unfavorable situation. He insinctively casts a protective force sphere around himself to shield himself from the double assault and then quickly leaps off of the tree and lands on the ground with another slight tremor. Silently chiding himself for his foolish dismissal of his opponent, Jian activates his jian and gives it a few swings.
Adam: He jumped down gracefully a couple of metres away from Jian with his sword at the ready, Adam examinded Jian and how he seemed to have a casual mannar of fighting, but he seemed to have gotten more serious than before after his two sided attack.
Jian: Jian takes a deep breath of relaxation and then arranges himself for ideal jian combat. His left leg is back at a 45 degree angle and his right foot is in front facing straight ahead toward Adam. Approximately 70% of his weight is on his back leg to allow for optimal lunges and parries. Both of his legs are bent at the knee and his torso is turned at the same 45 degree angle as his back foot. His jian is gripped firmly but easily in his right hand. Proceeding steadily toward Adam while maintaining his stance, he aims a rapid pi cut with his jian in an attempt to get a quick strike at Adam's sword hand.
Adam: He smiled to himself as though he dodged the strike the jian cut his palm but Adam was not bothered by the pain he got from the cut and quickly swiped at his legs whilst grabbing his dagger with the other hand and attacks his neck.
Jian: Jian quickly leaps back as he is faced with another daunting double attack, this time with dual weapons. His hasty retreat allows him to easily evade the assault on his neck though the sweep at his legs causes his shins to suffer moderate cuts at the hands of Adam's sword. Shrugging off the throbbing in his shins, he deactivates his Jian and pulls out his deer horn knives instead. Jian surmises that the quicker dual bladed style of deer horn knife combat will be more ideally suited to countering the style of combat that he has observed his opponent employ against him thus far.
Adam: He stepped a few steps back not to back up but to give him time' 'to plan out his next attack. It seemed his opponent was completely directed at him, giving him an opening for a surprise attack, which Adam grabbed at and summoned the undead behind Jian and whilst the undead attacked him from behind he tried to catch Jians eyes as he stepped forward thrusting his sword at his chest.
Jian: Jian's eyes widen at the incoming blade while he feels his back come under siege once more from an undead menace. Common sense dictating that an emaciated and weaponless corpse poses a much less viable threat than a live demigod with a deadly sword, he creates a quick protective sphere in front of him and leaves himself open to attack from the stern. He wrestles with the unsatiable fiend for a few seconds before grabbing it in a choke hold and leaping into the air. As he descends, he slams the undead warrior into the ground with a resounding tremor and knocks it out of commision. Growing weary of these dispicable and cowardly attacks from behind, Jian decides to make for one of the pillars at the edges of the arena where he knows there is minimal space for his opponent to engineer attacks. Leaping into the air once more, he lands with a light tremor on the starboard end of the arena and crouches behind the pyre-clad pillar.
Adam: He watched his opponent disappear behind the pillars and went over to climb a tree to plan out his next attack, the location of his opponent was a good choice, he couldn't use the same strategy he had before but Adam was alright with this, he was about to change strategy anyway. He quickly jumped from tree to tree until he was only a couple of metres away from the pillar, and being on a branch he could easily Jian and then leapt down from the branch and crouched on the side of the pillar, Jian on the other side and stepped forward and quickly sliced at Jian's neck at the exact same time a fissure erupted from underneath Jian's feet but not big enough to reach Adam but it reached a foot away from Jian on all sides.
Jian: Due to the fact that Adam's traversing from tree to tree was extremely conspicious, Jian is not caught off guard in the least by Adam's attack and easily parries the strike at his neck with his deer horn knives. However, immediately after the parry, a fissure springs up benath his feet which causes him to drop his deerhorn knives in shock which unfortunately fall right into the fissure to be lost forever. With no time to leap away, he quickly delves into a state of intense willpower which renders him invulnerable to attack. As the flames erupt harmlessly around him, he takes a deep sigh of relief and patiently waits until the fire gradually fades and the fissure retracts. Jian then quickly deactivates his invulnerability having no desire to use more energy than is necessary.
Adam: By the time Jian's invulnerability wore off Adam had climbed back up the tree and watched on as he made a small tremor to knock Jian over and if Jian did fall to the ground he would leap at him ready to knock him out but if he managed to stay on his feet, though this was unlikely but just in case he summoned an undead warrior to attack him a millisecond after the tremor trying to give Jian no time to recover if he managed to stay on the ground and Adam clutched his sword in anticipation.
Jian: At this stage in the fight, Jian has little patience for these skeletal abominations being unleashed on him so he simply activates his jian and bisects the undead assaulter. Growing weary of constantly being on the receiving end of attacks, he decides it's time to turn the tables once and for all. Stepping briskly toward the pyre, he deactivates his jian and utilizes his free hands to cast force waves at the pyre of flames which causes the flames to lurch forward in Adam's direction. Knowing that the flames will certainly not reach Adam from this distance, Jian suddenly cries, "COME TO ME!" With this bellow he infuses his will and attempts to compel Adam to descend from his sanctuary and approach the pyre; thereby hopefully exposing him to the rageful flames currently surging in his general direction.
Adam: He descended to the floor but as soon as he did he snapped out of it and could barely dodge the flames and recieved a minor burn on his hand rendering it uselss but it wasn't his swordhand so he still had the use of his sword. He ran down the side of the flames towards Jian and sliced at his legs whilst creating another tremor in the ground hoping to knock him to the ground, and Adam was becoming incredibly bored of this fight but he knew he had to plough on and studying his surroundings he decided to try and trip Jian into the pool so when the tremor happened and as Jian was meant to be weak on his feet due to the tremor, Adam attempted to trip Jian into the pool.
Jian: His attack thwarted, Jian decides to make for another location and comes to this conclusion just in time as a tremor starts causing him to lose his balance which he mitigates by leaping into the air. Descending softly on a large patch of land covered with sand, Jian pulls out his qiang spear and gives it a few twirls. He hopes to lure Adam into a more physical genre of combat not only because he is feeling somewhat drained from the significant amount of energy used in his last attack, but also because he knows that with Adam's incapicitated hand, Jian will be at a noted advantage.
Adam: He notices the lure but followed him anyway and began to attack him with multiple slashes at him, though one handed, Adam did not seem to be thwarted by this and he smirked at Jian 'I gather you expected me to be weak one handed, but no, I usually fight with a sword and dagger in each hand. So I am use to being one handed' He said in an arrogant tone whilst his sword flew at Jian again and again, if his opponent was a mortal or a newly claimed demigod, they would have been killed multiple times in less than a second, but Adam knew Jian was skilled enough to block most of his attacks but Adam knew that not even a skilled demigod could block all of the attacks in this onslaught.
Jian: The first two strikes bisect Jian's qiang and cut into his chestplate respectively before he is able to leap backward and activate his Jian. Using his power of increasing means of defense, he empowers his Jian and with its enhanced strength and speed is easily able to parry Adam's siege of blows without any notable trouble. As he continues to parry blows with his jian gripped in his right hand, Jian sneakily conjures an invisible force dao sword in his left. Not bothering to attempt to use it to aid in defending, he swings the sword across his body and tries to eviscerate Adam's sword arm from his body using the invisibility of the deadly broadsword to his advantage.
Adam: Just as Jian's broadword was swinging at him he slightly turned to swing at the oppposite shoulder and the broadsword sliced his armour on the back and made a small cut at the bottom of his neck which bled down the armour and Adam silently cursed at this and finally went for the for the final attack and brought out his spare sword which was strapped on the other side of his body, and though this sword was weaker than the other due to the burn on the back of the hand he followed Jian's hand movements for the invisible sword and with his weaker sword he did a technique he had created and mastered attempted to disarm him quicker than a millesecond, whilst his stronger sword went for Jian's neck faster than the disarming took and pressed the blade to Jians neck.
Jian: Jian doesn't waste any time attempting to prevent the disarming of the broadsword and simply dissipates it as soon as Adam's sword hits it. Rendering himself invulnerable once more, he brushes off the assault on his neck and takes a step back to assess what he wants to do next. Determining he wishes to launch his customary no holds barred assault reserved for the end of fights, Jian drops his jian and clenches his fists. From each fist, three invisible force claws emerge and he grins an evil grin at his opponent. Still invulnerable to attack, Jian leaps at Adam and begins unleashing a series of jabs and uppercuts with his clawed fists, attempting to make every inch of Adam he can penetrate bleed and suffer immeasurable pain.
