"Hi and welcome to Vallatrix's arena for tonight's instalment of Death Match ! This is the Birthday games for lady Quaffig, and is by special invitation only, the general populace is not in attendance, but we've been allowed access to broadcast across the planet: Gilly knows a guy who got an invite."
"Vallatrix, and his party are already in the stands, so I guess we're ready to begin, wait ! who is that sat behind Vallatrix with one of the new hover chairs and genetically engineered sabretooth cats" (whispers in microphone) "Why have I got no information on this person ! Well perhaps we'll learn more later."
"Wait I see the first gladiator entering the arena, it's the Revili Keyla, why are there names so hard to pronounce ! She's armed with her favourite combination of energy sword and shield and is wearing light armour, and I have to say I think she is one of the dirtiest players in the game."
"The next to enter is Cragor, the Ceratid. I think the Revili is in trouble as he seems to have vengeance on his mind, having spent the last lunar cycle in the healing vats due to their last encounter.
He looks to be carrying a new configuration of weapons from his usual. Yep he's got a Pugile stick and attack shield, his skin is like wearing light armour and quite hard to penetrate, looks like he's going all out to cause damage."
"They both reach the centre and salute Vallatrix, and are ready for the fight."
Both combatants are poised ready to strike again, and the Ceratid has taken a couple of steps back before launching himself at the Revili: bracing herself for the impact the two collide again.. with the Ceratid getting the upper hand, again inflicting 3 more wounds; and the Revili inflicting 1 back. The favour of the crowd is well on his side today, as she's been knocked back again.
A creak and grind slowly opens the door to one of the pods, and from inside a Deathcoil Beast slithers out into the ring and makes it's way towards the combat.
The Revili strikes back at the Ceratid, and they exchange blows. Again this time the Ceratid suffers another wound.
The Deathcoil Beast has ensnared her in his coils, while drawing blood.. and only suffering 2 wounds itself. The Ceratid fails to do anything. I think he's shocked by what he's just witnessed, or he's laughing too much.. hard to tell the difference with these guy's. UH OH that sound say's we've got another beast heading into the ring and it's . . . "A SKY SHARK" and has flown straight at the back of the Ceratid.
As it flies past the Ceratid it takes a bite at him and inflicts a wound: while the Ceratid managed to cause 5 wounds on the Sky Shark, it might think twice about attacking him again !
The Revili has no choice but to try and break free of the Deathcoil Beast, both inflicting wounds on each other and OH MY! IT'S JUST SWALLOWED HER WHOLE ! Wait what's that appearing out the beasts back, it's her sword... she's just split the beast open from the inside and killed it outright ! The favour of the crowd seems to be moving over to the Revili.
Not to be outdone, the Ceratid has charged into the Revili.. and with a single swing of his pugile stick, has flattened her - dropping her out for the count !
Wait there's something going on outside, and Vallatrix has sent in a goader to herd up the Sky Shark.
Gilly wakes up "what's going on ?" were being told we've got to cut the feed so say goodnight Gilly!
Okay "Goodnight Gilly"
"Somebody call my agent ! !"
Hopefully you enjoyed this BatRep it was really enjoyable to play. There was some truly amazing dice rolls during this match, with some fun results like.. the Ceratid causing more wounds with his attack shield than his pugile stick haha, and the Revili getting swallowed, then bursting out of the Deathcoil Beast.
The game was played with the standard ruleset, but what was going on outside the arena you say? Well, for that part we'll be using the new system to play that out at some point, until then have Fun !
