Gladiators sign up! 


Recommended Posts

Gladiators sign up! 

YES! We are looking for gladiators for our upcoming games and races to celebrate
young Titus Alexander's rise to Caesar.
Below is the rules and information of the gladiator part of the event. 


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. However, 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 



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.
