Welcome to Colleseus 15
Setting: Space station Colleseus 15

RULES: Ok, so anyone wishing to participate will have to fill out the character "Sheet" mentioned below. I already have a few people who did, but just repost it here. Once all the players are chosen and accepted, there will be NO TALKING for people outside this select group. I will act as the GM and narrator, and the characters and I will alternate posting, so everybody gets their fair share said, and there is no confusion.

Story:     Colleseus 15 is completely dedicated to the entertainment of arena goers. In it are several different gladiatorial arenas, many bars, and many antique shops containing primitive weapons and armaments from all across the galaxy. Millions flock to the space station regularly to gamble on their favorite fighter or just kick back and hang out at the shops.
    The arenas, multiple franchises, and space station itself is owned by the almighty arena master, Joudaek. Joudaek's past is unknown to all but a select few, and he is nearly impossible to get in contact with. Only a few great gladiators and his equally shady business partners have ever met him in person. Nobody is sure about where he comes from, or what he even is. One well known fact about Joudaek is that he holds a certain...sway over law enforcement, and seems to have nearly unlimited funds.
    Most of the Gladiators that participate in the battles are in fact criminals, desperate to fight and live another day. Few fighters actually volunteer to do it, as the rate of pay is quite reduced due to the large (And nearly free) criminal population. But even in this modern, civilized age, a few will work their way to the top; And it is known that champion gladiators are notoriously well payed for their endeavors.
    The battles are often between several different gladiators, and team matches are not uncommon, especially teams of gladiators fighting a giant beast. Occasionally there will be a "duel" of sorts, but at Colleseus 14, they like to keep it interesting. Among some of the crowd favorites is the "Battle of the defects" and the "Drinking game" match. Many seriously injured prisoner gladiators, often with disembodied limbs or serious brain damage will be used in the next "Battle of the Defects" match, where a team of defects will fight a team of new, fresh gladiators. The outcome is often predictable, yet very entertaining. In the "Drinking game" match, two fighters will be stripped of all armor and will each be given a small dagger. Each time a contestant is either scratched, sliced, or gouged by the shiv, he will be forced to drink a tanker full of foaming ale, usually a different kind every match. The battle ends when an opponent has drank enough to pass out, dies of alchohol poison, or is stabbed to death.

The example map


Read this example battle carefully to get a feel for his this thread will function. It will be slightly different than normal RP threads. I hold the power, bwahar!

Camdoggery: Luggyurr- The doors to your chamber in the southern wall slowly open, and there's nowhere to run but into the fray. You're weary, and hungrier than usual, but you know if you do well, they might feed you. You've been through this before, after you exit the chamber, they'll release the wild beasts. You're not sure what they have planned for you today. They have no obligation to tell prisoners what they're getting into after all.

Player X: Luggyurr stops for a second, twiddles his thumbs nervously, and glances behind him. Eventually he lumbers out, his clobbering stick hugged close to his chest. He looks around.

Camdoggery: You look around. It's the same arena you've been to for the last month, you recognize some of the blood splotches that haven't had sand kicked over them. They don't clean the arena so it looks authentic, or so your inmates tell you. The crowd begins to roar more excitedly.
    Suddenly, the door on the north wall begins to creak and open, the mechanism chinking noisily. Just as the door is open only two or three feet, two large bipedal insects about three feet tall leap out, crawling over one another and kicking dirt. Quickly spotting you, they each split up and go to either side, one in front of pillars one and two. They must be incredibly hungry, which will make the wild animals even more vicious then normal. They slowly approach from the sides, attempting to surround you.


Player X: Luggyurr lets out a mighty roar and swings his clobbering stick around in the air threateningly, "AAAEERRRRRRRGH!!" and readies himself for any nasty insects coming his way.

Camdoggery: The Chit Hounds stop for just a second, slightly taken aback by your display of viciousness. Chithound one shakes off it's doubt and leaps out at you with startling speed, knocking you over. It's jaws snaps repeatedly just inches away from your face as it clambers up your chest, giving you small scratches from it's raptor-esque clawed toes. You manage to hold it at a safe distance, but were so startled you dropped your club. The second chit hound is closing in on you.

Player X: Luggyurr totally forgets about his club and the other Chit Hound, but is more focused on getting the giant insect from biting his face off. He attempts to let go of it with one hand and bash it's face in.

Camdoggery: It is persistant at trying to bite your face off, but you plant your meaty fist into it's innards. There's a big cracking sound as the frontal exoskeleton shatters, and the Chit Hound goes flying back. It scrambles to get up, but is unable to. One of it's mandibles in cracked in half, and severa insect-likel eyes are hanging out loosely. There might be a bit of brain on your knuckles too, but it's kind of hard to tell. Chit Hound two immediately leaps at you, locking your left ankle into it's mandibles. You cry out in pain as it saws through the skin and several tendons.

Player X: Luggyurr freaks out and starts crying, but also tries to kick it off with his free leg.

Camdoggery: Your small leg doesn't pack as much of a punch as your fist; you struggle to kick the Chit Hound off, but it saws deeper, only slightly impaired by your struggling. You can't quite reach it with your arms, and it would be awfully hard on your ankle to get into a position to beat the bug senseless with your fist.

Player X: Luggyurr fumbles around desperately for his whomping bludgeon, so he can clobber the 'Hound.

Camdoggery: You find it on your left side, grab it, and swing it laterally at the Chit Hound. You feel a very sharp sting as the Hound and it's mandibles are ripped from your tender ankle flesh. It shrieks as it's flies back 5 or so feet and lands on it's back. Then it gets back up and shakes itself into conciousness, clearly very disoriented, and damaged in multiple places.

Player X: Luggyurr tries to hoist himself up using his stick as a crutch, and will then prepare for the next attack, now knowing very well how fast it will come.

Camdoggery: With some effort, you hoist yourself up onto your stick, and balance yourself on one foot. The Chit Hound charges at you, not seeming to have enough energy to leap, and this time you're ready. You tee up, and swing upwards, knocking the bug and several detached pieces sky high. The remains hit a wall near the top of the arena spectator seats, leaving a greasy yellow stain. This is all much to the glee of the audience. You're escorted by several armed guards back to the prison gladiator cells, where they give you a decent meal as a reward for your fight.

-End-

How it works:

 Camdoggery: Narrate intro.
----
Player1: Say what character is going to do.
----
Player2: Say what character is going to do.
----
Player3: Say what character is going to do.
----
Camdoggery: Show what happens as a result in each case, in order of fastest to slowest character(Including enemies, ex: P1-->P2-->Chit Hounds 1 and 3--->P3). Talk about what else is going on, if anything is.
-Repeat steps 2-5!

Race: Icthian

Distinguishing Marks: Henethist Dhulami mark tatooed on the head

Chosen Armaments: Traditional Icthian armour (think jousting armour) and harpoon gun

How he got there: Excommunicated Dhulami adherant (he started a heretical cult) who left to get away from his home after he was brought to justice. He got into the gladiator arena as part of a drunken bet.

RP text: "I don't need you or your sympathy. I may have gotten myself into this mess but it was my choice and I'll be damned if I'm not going to get myself out of it." Dul smashed his glass on the bar and stared furious around the room. "People always said I was crazy but I've made a success of myself despite my mistakes. I won't let anyone else take the credit for that." He turned and stormed off swimming out of the bar at top speed.

Skills: Speed, agility, and an almost suicidal optimism

Weaknesses: Gets angry easily and can be provoked, lack of experience in fighting, and an almost suicidal optimism

Distinguishing Marks: Two red lines down his back

Chosen Armaments: None, he is a mutant afterall

How you got to Space Station Colleseus 15: Testing subject

Name: Bolt

Picture:


Race: Torpal

Link to race forum topic: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=2215.0

Distinguishing Marks: Numerous smaller scars, as well as larger scars on chest and face. Also missing the end of his tail.

Chosen Armaments: Spiked shoulder pad (skull of something he killed), two short swords, three-bladed wrist-dagger.

How you got to Space Station Colleseus 15: Bolt grew up a fighter, but he didn't like being part of a team (well, part of an army). He preferred fighting by himself. He bored himself with numerous enforcing jobs, and quickly quit bounty hunting after seeing all the work that occured before the fun. He finally heard about Colleseus 15, and decided that fighting as a gladiator would be the perfect life for him.

Couple lines of sample RP text: "Enough talking, I wanna fight!" Bolt yelled. He let out a roar, and charged forward. His opponent swong a large sword, but Bolt blocked it, his short swords forming an 'x'. As he was about to uppercut with his wrist-dagger, a foot came out of nowehere, tripping him, and then sending him sprawling backwards.

Skills and abilities: Physically strong, resilient (can 'take a beating'). Prefers using skill rather than brute strength, but will, of course, fight with both.

Weaknesses: Prone to dizziness, slow runner, partial loss of tail can affect balance.

Quirks: Wears the teeth of his victims around his neck, [insert something else odd that i'll think of later].

Name: Grrgaggle (The sound he makes most often)

Race: Graspargh

Short Physical Description: Around five feet  three inches tall, with the yellowish skin, red eyes, and black claws and horns on his race. Short, strong legs support his powerful upper body, toned from large amounts of physical activity. His arms are long and lanky, but strong.

Link to race forum topic: -http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5825.0

Distinguishing Marks: Missing a small bit of the tip of his left ear. Pierced nostril with a bit of hooked bone.

Chosen Armaments: Mottled, patchwork shorts made of skin of fallen foes, torso and arms wrapped with chains (He likes the jingley sound), Curved "scimitar" made out of an animal tooth, fond of throwing sand and rocks.

How you got to Space Station Colleseus 15: Was found in a bathroom making bits of shattered toilet into knives. Animal Control officer who captured him decided to keep him and make a bit of money off using him in colleseum fights on Colleseus 15.

Line of sample RP text: //Grrgaggle's beady eyes peered upon the massive armored quadroped in front of him. The crowd cheered as the sand beneath him became wet, as he scampered off in an attempt to avoid the beasts sharp tusks. He trips over a loose bit of bone as he backs away, as the beast stands upon him and prepares for the finishing blow, Grrgaggle kicks a hoof at it's jaw and struggle to jam his blade into it's neck. //

Skills and abilities: Suprisingly strong, acrobatic skill, violent to the point of insanity, savage ingenuity, no concept of "honorable" and "dishonorable" tactics.

Weaknesses: Violent to the point of insanity, smaller size renders him vulnerable to smushing, claustrophobia, easily manipulated, pathological fear of water.

Quirks: Grrgaggle is known to fiercly guard the bodies of his dead enemy, and is often seen dragging them off to his cage so that he may consume then and use whatever bits he finds usefull to create a new weapon. He is known to not be toilet trained, and thus, many guards hate being sent to guard his cellblock, as he defecates on the floor frequently, and pushes it outwards into the hallway.

Name:  Lektesss

Picture:

Race:  Zrahi

Link to race forum topic:  http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5580.0

Distinguishing Marks:  Unlike most Zrahi, Lektesss has no blade or venom on the end of his tail, it was cut off in a previous battle and grew back as a normal tail.
 
Chosen Armaments:  The two blades built into the main fore arms of every Zrahi along with 4 other short blades held by the other hands(these blades are only used when the leaders of the games allow Lektesss to use more weaponry, he will fight with just his arm-blades alone)

How you got to Space Station Colleseus 15:
  An exile of his Zrahi clan, Lektesss had betrayed all of his own blood so that he could gain a higher rank with another group of Zrahi.  His plan failed and his own clan abandoned him at Colleseus 15 with no way of returning home.

Couple lines of sample RP text:
"Where is my honor you ask?  It was stolen from those who share my blood, now nothing is beneath me"  Lektesss extends one of his arm-blades and kills the black market merchant that was going to sell him supplies.  Lektess exits the  small hidden alley and slithers away calmly with his new Torpalian blades.

Skills and abilities:
Can slither out of most positions and is able to crush something if he has the chance to wrap his body completely around it(like a boa constrictor).  Agile and quick with his blades.  Can sense heat and radiowaves due to standard Zrahi enhancements.

Weaknesses:
Too sure of himself (can make the most stupid mistake at the worst moment), can be stalled by stepping on the end of his tail(it stops him from moving and the end of his regrown tail is especially senstitive)

Quirks:  Lektesss hates most everything and everyone, if you are no longer of any use to him or it's easier to just kill you do get something, he'll do it and most likely get away with it.  While he will do almost any dirty task Lektesss will also do anything he feels can regain his honor so that one day he may return to the rest of the Zrahi.

Hmmm, do they have to be actual gladiatorial characters or can one toss in some savage beasties as well?
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

IMPORTANT:  ok, I'm going to have to withdraw my entry cuz I realized that next week I go to camp and won't even have a computer and then school starts the next week so I'll be booked.  If you need to you can use Lektesss as a background character or I may be able to pop in every once in a while with him but that's only if he makes the final cut.  Should I clear the post I made submitting him?

I'm a horrible drawer but I did my best  ;D also a very usable monster.

Race:Darkmass

Name:Zenith
Picture:

Description: This very round and large beast, Has a very hard shell seeminly impenetrable. The body seems to be made of a smoother black rock type substance that seems very hard. His legs are metallic and very pointy as well as his mandibles. He may seem dumb but in actuality it is a very observant creature. Not a very violent creature but when it.s mad watch out.

Strengths: This creature has a very tough shell and the drill on its head can be used as a weapon. His big eye seems like a good spot to attack  but in reality it is almost as tough as his shell. When it wants full protection this creature will retract everything it has and turn into a ball.

Weaknesses. Zenith may be big but it's no meat eater it will do it's best to defend it'self and when awaken suddenly. Zenith is also a very slow creature it may have long strides but because of it's weight it is easily out run. The one true weakness of Zenith is it's insides and joints as well las the sides of it's drill. If a creature somehow gets on top being very difficult because of the smoothness and natural slick secretion an area around the drill has a few openings that can be exploited. Although hes hard on the outside this creatures third stomach is very squishy and if destroyed then dead Zenith which may be possible because Zeniths large maw near the mandibles.

Hobbies: Burrowing and sleeping for long periods eating rocks.

Favortie food: Iron

How it all began: As the miners of the molten planet Darkfire labored ever so tiresly avoiding large lava spills and mining precious mineral from the earth a sudden explosion was heard. "Oh must have been another plasma explosion to clear more rock" A miner remarked suddenly a yells and shouts were heard. A loud crash started to come up from the mine.
Who awoke me!? Why are all these people in my home. Zenith thought as he crashed through these strange new tunnels. Some odd stinging sensations started to come to Zenith, it seemed that the miners decided to open fire with there small arms on Zenith. Zenith stopped to see he saw at this strange new entrance with many little people shooting there lasers at Zenith. They must be invaders trying to destroy me!. Zenith rushed for the exit smashing the rock that was around Zenith. The miners ran from the tunnels some were pierced by Zeniths spiky feet. Once when Zenith finally made it to the exit of the cave (which became much bigger) Zenith felt a strange tugging sensation. Whats this flying ship doing around my home it looks tasty unfortunately for Zenith large flash of blinding light and suddenly Zenith found himself chained and and behind a strange force field.

Darkmass quote of old translated form the strange clicking and high pitched frequencies of talk. "We are the watchers the guardians always keep your eye open"

Weapons: Zenith has no hands so his feet mandibles and drill are his offensive method.

Cloths: Zenith has no cloths and his shell does just fine unfortunately he also has nothing to block his vulnerable joints.

Quirks: Zenith is much more hungry and curios than normal Darkmass's as well he can be much more agressive.
