    196 KB Gladiator Manager Noxii !!7QBgUoRZH/p 08/21/10(Sat)06:48 No.11764346  
    The roar of the crowd. Ten thousand souls roaring and stomping their feet, eyes focused on the blood caked sand of a colosseum, where the fate of man, beast and monsters are decided.

    Truly there is no more exciting game underneath the burning rays of the Dark Sun.

    But in the roar of the crowd the savvy hear the clink of an endless waterfall of ceramic coins. There is money to be made in these games, and you do not have to risk your skin to acquire it.

    In the harsh world of Athas, you have the resources and the drive to open up your own gladiator training school. You will have two business associates who are allied in your endeavors. What is your background?

    >I am an aging veteran gladiator. I do not have many resources, but I have earned my freedom and lost none of my martial skill. I can train the maggots in the arts I know and none is better at detecting that inner spark that separates a doomed slave from a future legend.

    >I am the slave of a local Templar. I have managed the gladiator stables since I was a boy and have mastered the secret art of finance. The previous manager was ripped apart by a Gaj. I have my master's resources at my disposal, but failure risks his displeasure.

    >I am a noble's son. With a fair bit of seed money and my two companions, this endeavor is far more palatable to my father than nights of broy and wenching. As a noble, I know the mechanisms of power than run the city state, and how to use my influence to cut a better deal.

    >I am an ambitious slaver. Years of dealings in the flesh trade has left me with a good enough amount of seed money to grab an opportunity by the balls when I see it. The other slave sellers? Pfah, I know HALF of them. Tilken Half-nose still owes me money so he'll swing me a better deal. My experience in the wasteland traveling with caravans lets me make arrangements for a quick get away if the need ever arises.

    >Veteran’s Eye – You can identify fighting styles fairly quickly and design tactics to counter foreign styles. In addition you have an instinct for telling when a slave has that survival spark or an opponent is going to be trouble.

    Beastmaster would be a good choice. (Buy the cheapest slaves we can find and have them eaten by whatever as a warmup show.

    We might also want whatever passes for a healer, assuming they can keep someone alive after being stabbed in the guts. Sometimes gladiators have to die in the arena, but we should make DAMN sure we've gotten our money's worth first. Having a sawbones who can heal 'em up, graft a blade onto their stumps and send 'em back out to fight is going to be a big part of that.

    Yeah. Based on your choice of starting background one would be locked in to cover your weaknesses.

    Some thoughts.

    +Weapons can brake. I will write up sometime about which materials (bone, obsidian, stone, wood) are better for what type of weapons (piercing, slashing, bludgeoning) but it may not even matter. Will be close to 2nd ed rules.
    +Upkeep of Property - I may revisit this sometime in the future but for the moment the food/water is taken care of.
    +How are we doing combat? - Cinematically. I'm relying a bit on the Character Builder and the current class synergism.

    This is okay but I'd rather get slaves from a slaver than a moneylender, because slavers from a slaver are more likely to be broken, physically fit and may have other qualities that make them good gladiators. Additonally, slavers from a slaver are getting an upgrade to their conditions, not a downgrade from a bad debt.

    So the main argument for a moneylender then, is the money. While this is useful we will have to turn a profit anyway to survive, and so it becomes less useful as we progress. I am thus more drawn to a slaver, who also has medical training, than to a moneylender who helps us ultimately less.

    Geb is a minor functionary in House Stel who got wind of your business plan with Illiene. Knowing a ceramic opportunity when he saw it, Geb got transferred from the slaver caravans to Raam proper. Technically under the command of Illiene in the Merchant House, Geb is a half-elven who knows the psychological tricks to keep slaves in line and in the best condition. Not a military man, he noneless has a minor psionic talent and is trained in the shortbow and longsword, for personal use. Many years of travel with the caravans has given him some minor wilderness experience and training at the best use of herbs to keep slaves fed and healthy.

Illiene is beside you, humming a drinking song he picked up in the brothel yesterday and sliding the beads on the lacquered wooden abacus back and
    forth, his telekinesis creating small pops and whiffs of ozone as he calculates the people on the selling block.

    ‘Alright Torak,’ he says, ‘we can chose from the wretched, the unskilled slaves, and the premium slaves they have today.’

    ‘The wretched are really only useful for practice against our new recruits, but on rare occasion we might find someone worth saving there.

    ‘The unskilled slaves are a notch above. They are mostly healthy and usually commoners taken from a raid or builders the nobles no longer have use for.

    ‘Criminals are a mixed bag. Often they are violent, quite often mad, and sometimes they are just not worth it because they have unfound wounds or illnesses.

    ‘The premium slaves they have on display…oh hey look at that,’ he whistles as a fierce green eyed elfen lass, clad in Nibanae blue silks is lead to the holding pen. ‘Heh. Looks like some noble is selling off a concubine today. They usually go for the price of a good gladiator.’

    ‘Anyway the gladiators lined up are a Thrikreen warrior, some lost insect without a clutch. There is a human greatsword wielding fighter, a half-giant battlemind, a dwarf shaman and a gith monk.

    Usually the gladiators will go for 200 c a piece abouts. Now I have pull with Hawkeye, but I can only sway ONE purchase down 20%. Its your call.’

    We need to find one or two with potential, and train them a little in secret. Then hire as many criminal psychopaths as we can and offer even odds on everyone in the betting. Worst case scenario, we don't make any money on the bets. Best case scenario, we win big on the betting, and have a couple of popular gladiators as well.

    criminal - 1d6+1 c /per

    Human Fighter with Greatsword -- 195 c
    Half-Giant Battlemind -- 280 c (Illene mentions this is a tad pricey)

    Sure Illiene can scan the slaves (and will on a routine basis). At the moment based on the range (and the fact Illiene whiffed his last two rolls) he's not getting anything special.

    Satisfied in your purchases, Illiene goes over to finish the transaction and briefly scan the slaves for psionic tattoos or other superficial marks of branding.

    The Greatsword Fighter is a big man around six foot with sinewy thews and built like an ox. However a practiced eye tells you he relies on his dexterity to close with a foe just as much as his strength. You talk a bit and its clear he knows the technique of Brute Strike and he seems Unstoppable, able to recover from injuries if wounded.

    The Thrikreen clicks at you and twirls his Gythka. From the motions it is clear he is proficient in it.

    You surmise the Greatsword Fighter could take advantage of opportunity attacks the Thrikreen sets up for him. And the Thrikreen, while not uncommon, always excites the crowd.

    Back at the compound Geb greets everyone all and looks over your new stock. As the ruffians come out of being 'processed' and delouced they file into the middle of the arena. The Greatsword Fighter looks on smugly. The Thrikreen moves his antennae curiously. The elfen lady remains stoic but watchful.

    'THIS is a SWORD' Tordek booms as he drops a wooden practice sword to the ground. 'You! Attack me!' One of the biggest criminal bruisers picks up the sword dumbly and brings it overhand in a long sweep to intersect with Torkek's head. At the last second, the Mul's twin punch daggers come unsheathed and block the sword in an 'x'. A quick twist of the wrist disarms the criminal, followed up by a lighting fast knockout blow to the jaw. The criminal slumps down. 'Now HE will not be sleeping in a bed. Grab the rest of the swords you wretches and earn your sleeping quarters. Only the strong survive here.'

    Sandria presents herself to you, in a low curtsy. She is voluptuous and well formed, a platinum blond beauty, yet the whipcord muscles and callouses over her skin clearly tell a tale of harsher beginnings. 'I was a concubine in a noble's house m'lord' she says. I can serve m'lord in weaving, etiquette, my skill with the lute, and the arts of the bedchamber.'

    Just good business, we have to see how well they fight already. We probably want to repeat this for a while, or, as an idea, split the slaves off into two groups. One trains under the human fighter, one under the Thri-kreen. Every second day you'll train one of the groups. At the end of the week the two groups fight, and that's how we decide who gets the beds permanently.

    After a couple of days settling in and some preliminary exercises, Tordek thinks the two gladiators are ready for some real exercise.

    Your boys in tow, and Iliene grinning like a fool you make it to the smaller practice colloseum where the gladiatorial farms collect to test their investments.

    Tordek peers at the clay tablet with today's matches.

    Where should we let her sleep? I'd rather she didn't get raped by one of the criminals in the barracks.

    Sleeps with us, I assume. We're not making her fight until we know some more about her, which can wait till next quest.

    Throw our stalwart slave in too. He's had some training, and he's just sitting about uselessly if we don't bring him. Have Geb come in and look over the slaves for us while we're absent, and tell him that you're willing to trade or sell some of them if he's interested in any.

    Unstoppable vs Whisper, the human shaman

    Your boy Unstoppable walks into the small circular arena with confidence, flexing his muscles and taking a couple of practice swings with the greatsword. The diminutive human opposite sneers and stands, legs spread in a wide stance grabbing some earth from the ground.

    We could call him three, since someone suggested that as a name for ourselves earlier.

    To be honest I don't know any Thrikreen sounding names anyway.

    We do have to give them names, and play them up for the crowd as well. Make a big deal of things, really play them up.

    >vs 6. Jesus

    The Shaman has barely enough time to raise his hand and begin to chant...when a shadow overtakes the sun. A rather large, rather sinewy, muscular shadow.

    With a greatsword. The first strike connects with wicked force, but the shaman turns at the last second and the sword only seems to give a moderate bruise. Panting the shaman quickly summons his elemental spirit, a minor spirit of athas and then rubs the earth over his skin in a flash of movement (action point). His skin grows a deeper brown as this layer of elemental protection ...does absolutely nothing (32 damage or something) as Unstoppable slams down the blade in a brutal strike against the shaman's side of his head.

    The shaman collapses, ears bleeding and is dragged off.

    Unstoppable flexes and grins.

    also noted

    Illiene turns to Tordek as a few of the noblemen and templar slaves pause then clap their hands politely in the stands. 'That human he's quick on his feet. If we can get an ardent or a shaman at a good price they would make a great duo in doubles. Also we should consider entering him in 'King of the Ziggurat'. There is a fine purse for first price, even for the novice tier.'

    Since this was just practice, there was a bit of friendly betting on the side. Iliene smirks as he rubs together 10 new ceramic pieces. One of the noblemen eyes you speculatively, and a Templar laughs from across the stadium, raising a toast to you. A runner from the toasting Templar comes by with an offer of 180 cp for the young gladiator.

    Mul gladiator. We've won our freedom and now we're setting up our own stable. The actual Tordek is the iconic dwarf fighter for 3.5e, and a minor meme - "Tordek's in it for the bitches".

    No, but we should be able to play an angle here to make a profit. Possibly a fight where the winner gets both participants gladiator? Try to word it so he thinks he'll be fighting Unstoppable, but actually it'll be Tordek who steps into the ring.

    Tell him we paid over well over 200 cp for him, and that's not counting the money we put into training him.

    Hmmm. Do we want to provide group combat, or more along the lines of dueling? Because as one Anon said, people are fine with watching the helpless be butchered, or a thrilling fight between the skilled, but middle ground pisses them off. We could just present the 20 wretches as they are, split into two teams at random, and have an assortment of weapons in the middle of the field where they're at.

    I said this too; but after a while we should phase this out. My suggestion was to do this every day for a week, in tandem with:

    And then after a week have the big brawl between the different groups to decide who gets the beds on a permanent basis. Or for the next month. Or week.

    Some of these guys just won't take to a weapon. I don't see any reason to -not- exploit potential on our regimen. If we really, urgently need more fodder then it's always going to be cheap as shit at the slave market. But a good fighter won't be, and as long as we keep training we might get one.
