Have a HP for me forgetting.

Going forward though, I need you to mention it in your attack. I don't always have time to double check your sheets for stuff like that

It's also your turn Moira, so you can go ahead with that too.

It is indeed a little graphically violent, especially against a mook marine.

I'll post the result for that tomorrow, too tired right now

That's okay. At least you acknoledged that it might have been going a bit far.

Just keep in mind that violence with minion class enemies is generally over the top violent without being graphic. Zoro for example knocks out entire squads of marines with his swords, yet you never see blood from them, only against named enemies does he make them actually bleed with his swords.

It's a definable line that shows the tone of the setting. Minions are below your need to be excessive since they go down with one good whack(part of displaying that your characters are in fact really powerful), why waste your time and effort being bloody with them? That having been said, Luffy's crew to date has not killed anyone that I am aware of (pre time skip), so I'm pretty sure there is a trope there. (Note, they have beaten the everloving p*** out of virtually every enemy they come across from Captain Kuro, Don Creig, Arlong, Crocodile and his henchmen and so on. Many of them have been left a bloody, senesless mess before being locked away or escaping (or simply left beaten like Lucci and the rest of cp9)

So while it is perfectly fine to get more graphic with named enemies, there's really no reason to do so with the nameless minions. One Piece, despite how violent it gets and how serious the series gets sometimes, has a very low lethality setting, so I'd like to keep it that way. :)

That way when people DO die, it has serious meaning.

I added my edits to my last post btw, if you didnt see it.

And I aleays figured that Zorro just used the backs of his blades. So Iorme could have used the backs of the blades (if single edged) or slaps from the side (if two edges) or just hit them in the guts with the pommel (which is more painful than one might imagine, but not too lethal).

I'll post the results of Dog's action on the marine's turn when it will become relevant.

You can go ahead Zeone.
