  1. The animal fights had just been concluded, with plenty of dead animals and even a few of the gladiators fighting the animals. Marcus had come without slaves and of course he had been fascinated and now watched equally fascinated as it was all dragged out, leaving behind a trail of blood on the sands before it was covered with fresh sand. Then the editor of the games stood up and spoke of what gladiators were to come. It would seem there would both be male and female gladiators and even a few deserters given a chance of redemption. Redemption! Hopefully they would die. If someone needed redemption, they usually were not deserving of it. Marcus looked up when a seller passed by his step on the seats and got himself a cup of ale and a stick with spiced pork to eat. Then he looked down at the games again, watching the first fighters enter the arena and he looked forwards to seeing it all happen. He didn't have any favorites, he just wanted to see how they did it and he wanted to see them die. Hopefully with a lot of blood. He smiled by the thought, but the smile faded quickly when someone tried to reach a better spot on the row behind him and by accident pushed to his back... making him spill the ale and drop the meatstick! "Watch where you're going!" Marcus yelled after the person, taking note of their appearance (just in case he wanted to seek them out later) and then looked to see if the ale had been spilled on anyone, while he also picked up the stick and attempted to brush off any dirt from the meat.
  2. Gladiators sign up! Characters and Quick characters are both able to sign up for the event. We are looking for all types of gladiators. Experienced gladiators, newbies with their first fight and prisoners for execution. (Yes, Gladiatrixes are welcome!) What are the IC risks involved? Your character stands the risk of being maimed or death (if you consent to that as a possibility. Alternatively, you can list your character as one you want to die, too.) How many characters can you have involved in the event? As many as you like. How are matches decided? Through the dice system or through player choice. Can I keep playing the character after the event? Yep, but on the AU or Back in Time boards only. Unless your character IC survives and you fill out the full version of the application. Who is getting paired? Generally people of similar experience levels will be paired against each other. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut you can request where you want to be placed. Experience adds to modifier. 0 - Prisoner. Weakened or a non-combatant. 1 - Healthy and strong but no combat training. 2 - Has experience fighting. 3 - Experienced and trained gladiator in that style. (Essentially, the modifiers limit the impact of the blows. ) Dice Roll. 1-Missed strike. 2- Cut skin. 3- Struck hard or knocked on the ground. 4- Broken bone. 5- Missed strike. 6- Struck hard or knocked on the ground. 7 - Missed strike. 8 - Broken bone. 9 - Missed strike. 10 - Cut skin. 11 - Badly maimed. (Loss of limb or an eye) 12 - DEATH. (If you don't want the character to die, it becomes an 11) A staff member will post the dice roll entry and players are able to react to it. Essentially, Bob and Todd are gladiators. Both of you do your openers. The first person who goes gets the first roll. So Bob gets say a 4. Bob is a level 1. That means Bob can choose to either get a broken bone or be knocked on the ground (a 3). Essentially, there is more choice to what happens. The rounds continue until someone either dies or is too badly maimed/injured, or 5 rolls each. If they are both marked for death, an NPC gladiator will come in and do it for the crowd. lol Example: A 3 is hit with a 12 and the player doesn't want to have the character die. There is no modifier. It becomes an 11. It is up to the player which limb or an eye is lost. If the character doesn't have the OOC no death clause. They die. Regardless of what level they are. Notes: A cut can mean something light, or more extreme where they will need stitches or something more severe. Depending on what the player wants. List of Gladiators!

  3. Apollodorus 22 | 7 March52AD | Slave | Gladiator - Cestus | Pansexual | Original | Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson Personality & History Apollodorus is the son of a gladiator and one of the household slaves. He grew up in servitude and considers it to be the norm. When he was a boy he got into a fight with another of the household slave boys. He had a vicious right hook and sent the other boy flying. He was flogged for his bad behaviour yet the Dominus saw fighting ability in him - along with the potential to earn coin through his winnings. When he matured he was placed in training at the Ludus and struggled at first to cope with the change of pace. Apollodorus was trained to be a cestus, a boxer style of gladiator and he hated the minimal amount of armour he was forced to wear. He gained the mark of the gladiator, and has already survived bouts. Family Herakles x Caecilia (household slave) Other siblings on either side of the family. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games. @Gothic
  4. Laran. Twenty-five | 2 April 49CE | Slave | Gladiator - Retiarius | Hetero | Original | Peter Mensah Personality & History Formerly he went by Lucius Afriananius before he had to sell himself in order to repay his gambling debt. It all started out small. A gamble here, a gamble there, and the desire to repay it all back. Just one win... Just need a big win. Unfortunately, it spiraled. He had no desire to ask his family for money or to ask one of the predatory gangs for another loan to pay back. He abandoned his family one day, and in shame went to the block. He found himself purchased by a Ludus Matutinus due to his long frame and agile appearance. His training went well and he has already competed in a couple of events already. His old name and the shame briefly forgotten when he steps into the Arena. To his surprise, he survived the matches and only came away with scars to prove his survival. Yet only the Gods know what is ultimately in store for him. Family Wife and one child. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  5. MARCUS CASSINUS. 25 | 22 July 49CE | Milite | Pleb | Bisexual | Original | Jai Courtney Personality & History Marcus' life before this point was quite average. He learned his trade and went into service to Rome through the legion once he was able to do so. His poorer background and lack of a trade kept him at Milite rank for sometime. Marcus did not know why he fled. He could have been executed in a variety of ways. If he had of been closer to the old legion he served in. He may have attempted to go back to the legion to face punishment. He thought himself an honourable man until the yearnings to return home became too strong. They needed him back here. There were harvests, and he needed to protect his family members. It all became too much for him to cope with. He deserted. Once he was home he began to realise his mistake and what it would eventually cost him. Surely the authorities would understand? A compassionate officer instead gave him the chance to survive or die in the arena to see whether or not the Gods would be compassionate towards him. Marcus deeply regrets his decisions and hopes to make amends with blood, if need be. In a strange way he hopes to reclaim his honour to Rome. Family Two disappointed parents and other family members. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  6. Lucius Baebius 20 | 15th August 54 | Soldier | Pleb| Bisexual | Original | Isaac Hempstead-Wright Personality & History Lucius is quiet and timid. He acts much younger than his years, and has always been the baby of his family. Many were surprised by his decision to join the military, as its completely at odds with his temperament. He is fearful of many things, and is easily anxious. His quiet nature fits with his weak body which has none of the muscularity of many Roman men, especially those in the legions. -- Born into a poor Plebian family, the fifth child (and third son) in rural Italia, there wasn't a great deal in the way of prospects for Lucius. He spent his early years minding his family's meagre plot of land and being coddled by his mother and older sisters. Having always been small and fairly unimpressive, he was sure he wouldn't be accepted into the army but he was, and he was determined that his wage would be of unparalleled benefit for his family. Unfortunately for him, it was quickly apparent that military life wasn't one for him. He dreaded every day of training, and the thought of a decade of his life spent in service to Rome was unpalatable. When he found out the legion he had been assigned to was to go to Britannia, he fled. He couldn't face the thought of dying in an unfamiliar, cold, desolate country and naively assumed that he'd not be missed. He was caught three weeks later, starving and hiding in an abandoned house not far from where he had fled. He's now in Rome, awaiting his punishment and is paralysed with fear. Family Marcus Baebius - father Nona Caelia - mother Marcus Baebius Minor - brother Aulus Baebius - brother Antonia Baebia - sister Gaia Baebia - sister EVENT FOR: Gladiator Games @Gothic
  7. Gaius Hostilius. 42 | 7 April 32CE | Plebeian | Murderer | Hetero | Original | Craig Walsh-Wrightson Personality & History Gaius was born to a decently well off plebeian family in Rome. However, he always wanted more. His childhood was relatively normal by Roman standards. His Uncle and siblings were all content to work in the fields with animals. He always wanted something bigger. He wanted more. He had a long history of using poisons in an attempt to try to further this own ends. Usually it was low level crime. His goal was mostly to gain as much coin as he could from his victims, and conning them. He preyed on the most vulnerable members of society. Unfortunately, he aimed at the wrong target and soon found himself in a bind. His friends betrayed him and he was convicted to die by execution in the arena. Grimly he awaits his fate, but hopes that the Gods are kind and permits him a quick death. Family Gneaus Hostilius (deceased) and Rutila Teuta(deceased) No spouse or children. Uncle. Gneaus Hostilius Minor (horse trader) Three kids. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
