Last Match for September 106 A.D.

I'm gonna try a new method for displaying hit locations and damage to the combatants. Hopefully this will make it a bit easier for the readers to follow, and more fun to read as it will show how much damage has been taken and to what body part...also how many bonus dice each gladiator has left...thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!!!

The last match for September 106 has my biggest hopeful in ludus Tyranus...Kagan the murmillo, with the "Brawler" attribute...I have high hopes for this one and eagerly look forward to his career...this last match for this month has my gladiator pitted against another gladiator of equal value(each have 10 attribute points). Cuello the retarius is Savvy-3, Strength-3, Speed-4. While Kagan is at Savvy-4, Strength-3, Speed-3...can the faster retarius take down the more skilled murmillo? The crowd begins to cheer as the gladiators pass through the gates. The signal is given, and the match begins...

Well, the greater speed of the retarius proved to be the difference...aarrgg. But on the plus side, Kagan was spared and will live to fight another day. So back to the ludus to train for next month's matches.

All in all a good month...4 matches won and 1 lost(although the first four matches were against opponents with fewer attribute points...but I'll take the wins anyways)...until the next games.

Match 4

Wow, a quick fight. The retarius used up all his bonus dice early. Luckily for Rakios he didnt roll very many successes. Only through exhausting himself did he lose. At the end, my secutor had only 2 bonus dice left, but it was enough to level his sword at the retarius and force him to submit. While it wasnt pretty, a win is a win. The last match for this month's games is next. For the first time, both warriors will be evenly matched. I rolled up an opponent who is my gladiator's equal. Savvy, Strength and Speed. Coming soon.

Next Up

Next up is my secutor, Rakios as he takes on Decimus the retarius. So far, each match has had my gladiators facing opponents who were lower in total attribute points, and this one is no different. The retarius is only 1 point lower but still can deliver a blow that can end the match for my secutor if he is able to get that trident past the large shield of Rakios.
