SNF 2017.06 - ICP Fight Fest: Down The River Burden

[Toggle Names]

Description: Of course, not far away from the corporate BBQ, by the Southtown River sits stagnant. If someone wanted to, in theory, drive up with a young man and his fugitive uncle and prison buddy to the BBQ, ambush him, and punch him in the face until he falls comes apart at the seams? Well, that's the way they would go. Fortunately, there is just enough drugged out homeless there for a different kind of help. The kind of help that Mr. Burr can provideā€¦ while covering the flanks of a corporate BBQ. You go ahead and teach that young man some proper manners, would you?

It is roughly midday in southtown. The sun is at it's pinnicle in summer, and while not quite record heat, it is definately uncomfortable to be out and about in without some protection!

Near the river, a special endevor is underway! A large group of homeless, many of them hopelessly drug-addicted, have been gathered by the special-events groups. Shelters have been set up for the heat, water and food provided, and supplies intended to aid them in ridding themselves of such addictions!

Enter the mysterious benefactor! Ever clad in the finest of suits, with a rather dapper cane and bowler, stands the benevolent Malcolm Burgess! Despite what many may think, he isn't THAT bad of a guy! After all, he HAS put his wealth behind this occasion! It simply doesn't do for folks to be hopelessly unable to make their lifes choices due to medical interferance caused by those disgustingly unclean substances other vendors peddle to the masses! That said, he has taken it upon himself to personally be present for the occasion to ensure everything goes..... smoothly! Despite his state of dress, he seems completely unphased by the heat, merely dabbing at his forehead with a cloth when the need arises.

In one of the meager shadows, Miguel walked. He was in tattered shorts and his unbuttoned shirt was clearly used and on the small end. He was surrounded by the deplorables of society. He wasn't a permanent bum of the area. He knew Lee was going to show up just north of the river, and he was going to get there. He was going to bust it all wide open on camera.

Then a man in a suit surrounded by the local bums came into site. Intrigued, the Spaniard walked closer. Once near, he very loudly asked a simple question.

"Hey? Who's the weirdo in the suit?"

As the med-team starts working, Burr looks over at the ragged speaker. He gives a smile as he tips his hat "You may call me Mr.Burr my good man. As my associate Mr.Lee was unable to clear the time enough to make an appearance i am the sole leader of this venture. Are you in need of some assistance?"

Miguel grinned when one of Lee's associates showed up. Putting his hands behind his head is a most casual form, he picked up his favorite mocking tone.

"Oh, I didn't know Lee Chaolan had friends, I thought he just had the prostitutes in his basement. Now I know those lady-boys are your then. Unless you are one yourself."

"Why are you here anyways, instead of Lee's playroom?"

An appraising eye is leveled at Miguel as Burr turns to face him "Buisness is buisness. One need not be 'friends' to do buisness. As for what we are doing......" he holds his arms wide, as the medics and folks they are helping are all around him "i would think it quite clear to anyone with some skills of observation. Providing medical assistance to those who require it.

Miguel was going to enjoy this moment. This man was a wonderful warm up for Lee. He was going to shatter Chaolan's plans, so he might as well savor the day. He pushed out into the front to speak to him more directly.

"No, why are you out here giving medical aid. Is it so everyone won't think about every dirty underhanded trick you use. Or are you just looking to show everyone how much you 'care' to hide your know sick practices. "

"Or are you looking for new clients who have the appropriate standards?"

The response to this is merely a wide smile. If Burr is on to his intentions, it doesn't show in his face "Well, consider this. If these folks die now, think of ALL the choices they will never be able to make in the future! Or the impact THOSE choices may have on those around them, and so on, and so on! I want to see what ripples THIS ripple causes elsewhere in the ocean of the world!".

Miguel get's closer to Burr, he sported a wide grin to match his. "So your just wanting to get more of these vagrants to buy your product. But considering these people have little money as it is, your little ripple will get overpowered by the ocean waves. "

"What is your product anyways, other than your filthy body."

Burr merely tilts his head "In this case i'm not selling ANY product. I'm paying for the medics here today to provide medical aid to those needing it". He shakes his head "Are you sure you don't need to get your eyes checked? You seem to not be seeing what is going on around you" he tsks "So sad......

Miguel was growing tried of the man's evasiveness, and figured to get direct. "I'm talking about where you get the money to pay the medics, do you pull it out of your stupid looking hat? Or do you get it from Lee once a night? Let me tell you about the last time I saw your 'partner', he ended up passed out, and I punched him so hard he left a long red stain in the sand. "

Miguel cracked his knuckles in his fist and closed into Burr, towering over him.

"If you wanna know more, just ask Lee about what happened to a Miguel Caballero Rojo, and ask about how much it hurt."

Sigh...... such a bother "How rude of you. Insulting a work of charity, and boasting about the harm you did to someone. I am going to have to insist you leave this premises until we have finished our work and departed...." his eyes sharpen slightly, though his smile never fades ".... or would you prefer that i remove you by force?". With a quick tilt of his head Burr cracks his neck to loosin the feeling a bit in an obvious attempt at intimidation.

Miguel had a piercing smile. All the anger he built up for Lee was overflowing. It was pouring out onto Burr. When Miguel heard Burr's challenge he immediately responded.

"Of course I'll leave, you just have to tell everyone each dirty little secret the two of you have. But since you won't do that."

Miguel launched a firm fist at Burr's face.

"You can just TRY to force me!"

The punch impacts firmly with Burrs face, his head turning slightly with the blow. The effect seems.... minor however, and Burr merely smiles in response "Well well well..... lets see what you've got then lad!".

With a flurry of strikes, Burr attempts to unload on Miguel with his cane, the barrage of strikes aiming for weak spots where able!

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr successfully hits Miguel with Spare the Rod.

Miguel threw up his guard, but the cane pierced his defenses. But the Spaniard just quipped yet again.

"Doesn't look like that cane's for walking, do you keep if for your special play time?"

Miguel then launched a quick jab to Burr's face, his anger and lust for vengeance fueling his muscles.

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr blocks Miguel's Jab Punch.

Miguel           0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0          Mr.Burr

With a simple swipe of his arm, Burr deflects the punch with nary a wince "Your imagination is MUCH more colorful than any truth, so i'll won't answer either way". With a quick grab, Burr reaches for the deflected arm, and attempts to pull Miguel off balance and into a throw, aiming to land him on a tent peg on the ground!

COMBATSYS: Miguel dodges Mr.Burr's Strong Throw.

[    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////////     ]
Miguel           0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0          Mr.Burr

When Miguel's strike was deflected, he saw an incoming grapple. He lightly turned out of Burr's gasp.

"Don't want me to talk about that, fine then. I guess what happens in the basement from 11 pm to 3 am, stays in the basement."

With his new angle and close proximity, the Spaniard kicked with his rotted, muck covered shoe. He aimed for Burr's leg's and out follow up with a full force headbutt right to Burr's skull.

COMBATSYS: Miguel successfully hits Mr.Burr with Bajeza Con Cabeza.

Miguel           0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\0          Mr.Burr

The kick connects cleanly, and Burr winces as he is knocked off balance. He sees Miguel moving in, and guesses his next move, bracing himself for the impact!


Their skulls connect. Hard. Even having prepped himself Burr is on the losing end of this, and takes a moment to shake it off before grinning back at Miguel "Such a dirty mind you have. How rude indeed!". With a smooth motion, he reaches up, takes off his hat, and slams it down at Miguels head! A head-strike for a head strike, provided he can connect!

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr successfully hits Miguel with Destruction Derby.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
Miguel           0/-------/=======|=======\=------\1          Mr.Burr

The skull bash was met with skull bash. To the observing hobos, it was almost like watching two sheep ramming each other. Miguel was pained by the blow to the head from the head he just hit with his head.

Acting with haste, Miguel could just shout out another verbal dart as he quickly sent his knee up to Burr's head again.

"Don't you dare touch me with that ugly hat again!"

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr endures Miguel's Light Kick.
-@- Dazing Hit! -@-

Miguel           1/-------/=======|=======\====---\1          Mr.Burr

Two rams is an apt comparison. As the knee comes in, Burr moves in, seeming to simply accept the incoming attack without concern!

Unfortunately for him, it connects with his temple rather than the thicker parts of his skull, throwing his senses for a complete loop! He carries through with his attack regardless, however! An uppercut with plenty of power behind it!

COMBATSYS: Miguel blocks Mr.Burr's Strong Punch.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Miguel           1/------=/=======|=======\====---\1          Mr.Burr

Miguel saw incoming punch from the confused man, and he simply caught the upper cut. It still held force, but Miguel.. Was.. Too.. MANLY!

" You call that an upper cut! I am gonna punch you square in the chin so hard you'll fly off into the river! "

Miguel got down on one knee. He was going to to render a -Real- uppercut.

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr blocks Miguel's Strong Punch.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Miguel           1/-----==/=======|=======\======-\1          Mr.Burr

Burrs arms snap up fast in response to Miguels words. Announcing the place you are gonna strike doesn't work the best, and he gets up arms in position well ahead of the attack, though the impact still takes a toll on Burrs limbs.

With a lightening-fast motion, Burr reaches for his cane, and draws the blade free, slicing in a forward arc towards Miguel before resheathing the blade almost as fast!

COMBATSYS: Miguel blocks Mr.Burr's Crescent Arc.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////                ]
Miguel           1/-----==/=======|=======\=======\1          Mr.Burr

Miguel failed his uppercut and would not be allowed back into the office. But the sharp sword sliced the strong Spaniard slightly, striking his shirt and shredding it and small sanguine stains remains.

"Like I said, your cane isn't for walking. But when I'm done with you, your gonna need that walking stick."

Miguel then lunged to grab Burr and slam him into the concrete barrier.

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr fails to interrupt Medium Throw from Miguel with Mirage Dance.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////                    ]
Miguel           1/----===/=======|====---\-------\0          Mr.Burr

As Miguel comes in, Burr moves to draw again, but his timing is badly off from the earlier impacts. The lunge drives him back, and the impact with the concrete knocks the wind out of him, causing a fit of coughing and stunning him for the time being......

Miguel blindly rushed in and slammed Burr against the wall. Then he started to mock the downed man.

"Oh dear, now you've made the wall all filthy, now the bums won't touch it. It looks like your bit even close too Lee, not in anything, your pitiful!"

After figuratively kicking him while he's down, Miguel went in for a literal kick on the downed man, driven by a drive to beat this man down.

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr fails to interrupt Medium Kick from Miguel with Hooked Throw.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////                         ]
Miguel           1/---====/=======|=====--\-------\0          Mr.Burr

Unfortunately for Burr, the jarring strikes to the head are catching up with him. He moves to catch the strike with his cane, but misses, and the kick connects cleanly with a dull *THUNK!*. Despite this, he pushes to stand, however dizzy with his only response being "So..... uncouth"

Miguel turned his back at the man after kicking him thinking he was down, he faced him again once Burr began to rise. The Spaniard began to further insult Burr, seeking to finally make Burr break.

"Wait, I take that last part back, you have surpassed Lee in one thing. You, against all odds, are somehow even uglier than Lee is. You must tell me how you have achieved such a feat."

"Was it when your mother dropped you in disgust when she first saw you?"

At finding humor at his own joke, Miguel began to laugh. He apparently thought it was a real knee slapper as he walked back towards the wall. Whether or not the insult was funny not was made a bit of a moot point. The bigger concern was the full force punch Miguel was throwing right next to the wall.

COMBATSYS: Mr.Burr fails to interrupt Burla from Miguel with Cane Beam.

As fast as he's able, Burr flips his cane up, a beam of green ki firing from the end at Miguels face! It passes inches from his face, impacting a tree behind harmlessly!

Miguels strike impacts Burr solidly, denting his armored underarmor and sending the dapper fighter flying into the concrete barrier hard enough to smash clean through it and into the river, where he vanishes from sight as the water rushes into the area through the break!

Miguel punched right into Burr. A green light passed next to the Spaniard head, but the chi was likely too fearful of Miguel's masculinity. His fist dented iron, shattered concrete, and made a Burr fly.

Miguel stretched out his huge muscles after breaking the barrier. He was clearly posing for the nearby camera before he turned to face it. He grabbed it in his hand and started making a specific statement to a specific man.

"Lee Chaolan, this is for you. I am going to take my revenge for everything you, and your disgusting family has done to me. All you have taken from me, I am going to gain my retribution! You have been making a black wake of those you've wronged. But they still exist, and you can't silence them."

"They will be coming for you!"

Miguel then shoved the camera back to the camera minion, and started walking. He knew he missed Lee, the fight delayed him too much. But he was still going to make a message, and this one felt like it was going to be even louder.
