Subject: let's talk


The woman under the cauldron laughs a mirthless laugh and says, “Ody? Hardly a hero’s name now is that? Ody? You should try Ody the Terrible or Sir Ody the Good, Great and Godlike. Please Ody! Spare your divine favours for more pressing matters and allow me to assure you that I am all together evil and were it not for my current predicament, I would no doubt be hunting you instead of being the bait and the trap at the same time. You should not remove this steel hood from my head unless you wish only death as a peace from the torment.” As an emphasis to her statement, the sudden hisses of many snakes echo from within the cauldron. “As to who I am, though I think you care more for what I am, my name is Cassandra.”

(Ody can choose whether to continue casting the spell)

“So an elfmaid, a human, another elf and a ...” more hissing noise comes from within, “and a werebear enter a tomb. What is the punchline?” Cassandra asks.

Through the room and to the doorway, you find a corridor that runs east –west to another room. The north side of this room is 30feet across with a stairs going downwards into darkness. The room is 20 feet deep to the south. Stairs lead downward from the east and west walls. Two sets of four lights are set up here on stands attached to a generator that runs with a slight putter on the floor. There are several of the undead Egyptians on the floor here, all dead from head-shots. There is a corridor on the other side of the room and up the stairs that connects up with the room you were previously in. Looking down the corridor you see some dead and equipment knocked over.

Even approaching the stairs to the north, you feel a strange foreboding and the air seems unearthly cold as you approach.

Okay. Two Half-orcs, a dwarf and a elf bought and paid for by Severn Zuck, Guildmaster of the Professional Graffiti Writers and White Washer's guild. Remember, if you need a rumour spread - call Zuck. You need your name erased - call Zuck.

I will post the characters into the game thread.

Subject: Glut's crew


Name: Bulgarus the Bold

Race: Half Orc
Gender: Male

Hit Points: 20

Strength: +1
Stamina: 0
Presence: -1
Agility: 0

Description: Full helm styled to look like a grimacing boar with a shock red boar's hair comb on top, gold-colored plate armor with muscle designed into its appearance, blood red chain beneath, and a red cloak. Round medium-sized shield emblazoned with a heraldric red boar on a black field.

Background: Bulgarus grew up a street rat with no future in sight. He was, however, good in a fight. So, when the opportunity presented itself he attacked a local merchant's portage group with the intent to get their attention. He's not very bright, this Bulgarus, and he ended up killing one of the guards. The bold move landed him in a mining pit, not the Gladiatorial Arena as he had hoped.

Sticking with the same failed strategy, he attacked some of the guards in the mine. Again, he killed one of them. He was severely punished and ended up being moved to a salt mine.

Still determined to make it to the Gladiatorial Arena, Bulgarus decided to stick with his winning strategy and attacked yet another set of guards. This time, he lucked out. He accidentally broke the leg of a scaffold platform in the fight and the heavy stores of salt waiting transport off the platform crushed all of the guards.

Confused by his predicament, Bulgarus left the mine and headed straight for the capital. His intent was to plead his case to the Emperor, but when he arrived, he'd found that the old man had died.

Left with no other choice, Bulgarus sought audience with the new Cat Emperor. When denied, he attacked the guards. And... he was finally thrown into the Gladiatorial Arena.

Subject: Whisking away to Alacrityville


Note on playing the game. Post what you wish your character to do and I will play the combat out round by round. You do not have to write out a long description of your characters thoughts and motives if you do not wish to, “move then basic attack, dodge for defence” works just fine.

For the sake of the play test, attacking fellow gladiators is not allowed in this session. Please try to keep it as a team. I will post the characters on a single sheet soon, using Tann’s wonderful sheet he posted.

So we are not slowed down by absences, I need you to give me a 1-12 roll for what your character will do in combat and what you will do for defence. So if your gladiator favours the basic, you could set it up as:


Attack
Basic 1-8
Finesse 9-10
Hard 11-12

Same with defence
Dodge 1-10
Parry 11-12

Game on:

The guards are looking over at you with knowing glances and laughing among themselves. That can’t be good. Not there can be any good in the situation you are in – slaves with no rights, not even to your own life. But still, there are ways to survive in this world and as you stand on the platform that is raised up by the turning wheels and pulleys powered by other slaves too weak to be gladiator, you have to be glad you are not them. At least you are a commodity to your owner – not just a moving part.

Of course it is not “owner: to the Al’s – it is patron. Same as it is not public executions, it is the morning shows. Your patron is a man named Glutinous Max, a wealthy captain of the bread making industry who has begun dabbling in the slave trade. Seems he has lost a lot of money ever since a competitor started a “make your bread Glutinous free” graffiti campaign. Well, at least you get bread every night.

The sunlight stabs your eyes as you move into the arena. The blue sky and warm sunlight beckons above you and your think to a saying that you have hear throughout your training. “It is a good day to die, but it is a better day to live”. The walls have been moved inwards to make the area smaller and more compact. Across from where you stand is a large cage covered in black cloth. From within the cage, you can hear growling and feel the cage shake even from where you are standing. It is at least 6 feet across and 8 feet tall and the guards that are posted on the walls to prevent you escaping are giving it a large berth.

You look over at the other gladiator in the arena and they are all new recruits like you and they are looking at you as well - An elf, A half-orc , a man and a woman. Will you be able to work together and defeat whatever is in the cage?

“Good morning people and citizens of Alacrity!!!!!” the Herald calls out from high above. “Today’s entertainment is brought to you be Glutinous Max’s Bread – Now with 30% less stones! Remember if it is not Max bread – is it probably poisonous and will kill your family!”

The crowd laughs approvingly as they munch on their free bread.

“Today for your delight, we have four new Gladiators. I give you, “He pauses to squint at the words written on his sheet of parchment. “Lucas the Elflord, Frita The Fashionable, Spartan The Cusser and Bulgar the Bald. These fine new recruits will be facing the fiend of the forest, the devil of the dark, the monster of the marshes – The Kodiak Bear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The pin above the cage is pulled out by a pulley rope which causes the cloth and the sides of the cage to fall at the same time to reveal a huge grizzly bear. It roars in rage and anger, standing its full seven and a half feet in height before lumbering out with its eyes on the four of you or the four bite size steaks in the eyes of the Kodiak.

“Those of us who are here to watch you die, salute you!” The herald finishes and the crowd cheers wildly.

I hope to post to this and other games today. I had a busy weekend and I also have an eye issue right now that requires drops that are playing with my light sensitivity and focus - walking around like Jack Sparrow a bit.

So we have a group of four starting. Do I have another four - Keeper, Aryn, Chessicfayth and ???. Do I have another taker?
