@Ouachitonian: Considering that the bloodrager is a barbarian/sorcerer hybrid, I'm inclined to say yes to its FCB.

First of all, holy COW I was not expecting to get 30 applicants for this. There's so many cool characters to pick from that I'm going to be hard-pressed to pick only 5. My goodness. :)

Second, I'm actually rather surprised there were no Summoner's Apprentices or Cheating Bastards among the entire lot. Plenty of Problem Slaves and Sex Symbols, though (to be honest, I probably should've expected that). ;)

I'm going to take some time to mull it over. Once again, thanks so much for your interest.

Good luck to everybody! :D

Good luck, all!

Jazrok starts a drum roll to build anticipation.

Good luck would have kept us out of the pits in the first place.

It's an interesting concept for a game and one you've put a lot of thought into I think people respond well to that sort of thing. Enough brown nosing, in lieu of wishing peoplw luck I wish that the game gets the players it deserves.

As promised here is my background:


Aurix’s scales always set him apart from his fellow kobolds within his clan. His coloring was seen as a bad omen to them, especially so deep in the underdark where the metallic scales would catch the light.. When Lord Sjach, the umbral dragon that dominated the clan, instead caught sight of the little kobold, however, he saw a disarming tool that he could use outside of his domain. He noticed that his less reptilian minions seemed to be less nervous around him and began to train him as a spy or infiltrator, for no one pays attention to the silly little creature making jokes.

Once his master was satisfied with his training, he was issued his first mission. Evaluate if the drow allies are truly worthy of his master’s aid. Infiltration of the drow just involved being selected as one of the 50 kobolds annually sent to the fighting pits. All he had to do was survive the first bout and entertain the crowd while doing so.

Aurix did survive his first bout and became a crowd pleaser with his unique style of patient defence and then savage fury.

Also small adjustments to stats. Miscalculated Diplomacy and Perform bonus, actually +8. He will also be a rageshaper bloodrager.

And good luck everyone.

Best of luck to all submissions!

Gah! My apologies for never getting around to putting a background in Evedro's profile. I have one, I swear, I just need to type it up in an acceptable fashion...

Good luck to all!

Good luck all

Good luck, all.

Mouse Background:
The halfling lass known as Mouse was once Jenni Sunmeadow. She had a strong sense of curiosity and a desire for adventure. It was these traits that got her into this mess. She was exploring some caves near her village one morning. She felt a sudden pain in her head and when she awoke, she was among other slaves taken by the drow.

As a slave, she kept to herself and remained mostly silent, earning her the name "Mouse." When the drow slave master came around looking for slaves wanting to earn their freedom, Mouse jumped at the chance. Anything was better than remaining a slave. The arena was... unexpected, but if it meant her freedom, then she would do it.

Hey! That's my thing! :P

This looks really fun! I discovered it too late to submit an entry. At first, I thought the Drider would be overkill and I like how it was toned down.

However, there are plenty of good characters, I surely wouldn't want to be in Dragoncat's shoes right now ... :-)

Well, I spent the better part of a day mulling over who I'd like to play with. Ultimately, I came to a realization that I simply didn't have it in me to pass up so many good character concepts.

So, I did something that I don't usually do.

I decided to run two tables. Nurgal help me.

I'd like to welcome...
--Anabel Imvara
--Lilamma Malphé
--and Lyra'an to the Gladiatrix Saga discussion thread!

I'd like to welcome...
--Spikey Berry Piercer
--and Torsten Runeforger to the Exotic Specimens discussion thread!

To everyone else who made an application, thank you so much for showing interest and thank you for making it so difficult for me to pick.

Can't say I'm surprised I didn't make this one. Lot of great concepts beat me out. Hope y'all have fun!

Have fun, all!

Thanks for the consideration, Dragoncat!

Aha! Excellent! Many thanks, o kind and wise GM.

Aww :( Have fun all!

congrats to those chosen!

I actually considered suggesting running more than one table wirh the proviso that you let us get murdered and dragged away to be replaced. Would only be fitting...

Huh, I thought I'd be an exotic specimen. Better shop for oils...

Sovereign Court

Will you be considering others as replacements if people drop?


Sovereign Court

Cool, I'll keep watch then, thanks.

Ah well. I should have gone more exotic, but I had hoped by playing close to home, I might slip in. Have fun, all.

yeah, thankies!

Thanks GM! Real excited to join the Mighty Gladiatrices, looking forward to the pits, and to hopefully seeing the Honored Alternates in and around the boards :-)
