Gladiators Week Eight

Not much turn out this evening, just Rick, Christian and myself...

Before the games, we checked to see if any of the injured gladiators recovered.

Publius Gnaeus Mediocritus finally (FINALLY) recovered fro his wounds! And just in time, because Christian finally (FINALLY) was able to make it out this week!!

Aximae made no recovery and remained incapacitated.

Darkus Daius made a full recovery and returned to training this week.

Noobus made a remarkable recovery and was back to strength and returned to training. Hipp O’Potomus and Monotonous, however, both picked up some sort of infection and each gained a wound – bringing them both to THREE!!! .

Sabrina remained pretty seriously injured and Sura both made full recoveries this week. Sabrina was lucky on the dice, recovering two, Sura recovered one but got a bonus heal-up because Amanda actually READ last weeks post and made a comment… Pay attention the rest of you…

Game One

Three on Three

Vorro, Cruxus and Oxus versus Publius Gnaeus Mediocritus, Unhygenix and Metallugix

I couldn't even be bothered to do a page for Cruxus and Oxus... sorry. Cruxus was the latest incarnation of Crixus/Craxus... and Oxus was a gladiator I quickly made up myself to even up the odds....

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

Oxus makes for his opponents then realizes his “partners” are still on their knees praying to their pagan gods..

A bit of smack-talk gets a couple of the gladiators crying… bucha babies…

In his first round of combat Oxus laid a mighty blow on Unhygenix – like SIX wounds… the bugger soaked FIVE of them!? Would have been a totally different game…

Publius got into it and took advantage of Oxus’ wild attack – knocking him further off balance (shaken)

Oh, it became a big brawl…

Everyone just hamering on each other.

Oxus deal two wounds to Publius as well and it was looking up for his team…

Then Cruxus took THREE wounds!

A turn or two he went down…

Then it was Vorro…

Then all three opponents were ganging up on Oxus. On of them dealt HIM six wounds – which he soaked three of (using his lat benny) he took a dive but didn’t have the audiences favour and was slain…

Fierce the battle thunder
Bold sons of Gallia
Shouting Unhygenix, goading fury
Metallurgix, mighty sword-arm
Hapless Roman, Cruxus falling
betrayed by plebs, the murder-make
Varrus next the sand to meet
Blood on sword-tip, battle frenzy
Unhygenix shouts unmanning
Darkest Oxus man of night
Swift the ending sword triumphant
Three threads cut for Belenos
