Morituri - new Gladiator game!

Postby Lawrencelot » Thu Jan 12, 2017 10:09 pm UTC


When falls the Coliseum, Rome shall fall; And when Rome falls--the World.

Lord Byron

Welcome to Morituri, where we will have two groups of players: the gladiators, and the audience of the Coliseum. You can choose to play as a gladiator, as someone in the audience, or both. The role of someone in the audience is simple: place bets on the match and earn money, or just enjoy the show! The gladiators will try to earn their freedom.

Audience rules:
-Start with 10 coins. Bet on the outcome of a gladiator match. If you're out of coins you can start over. Betting on the underdog is risky but can earn you more coins.
-When someone loses a match without dying, you can influence whether they should still die or whether they fought with honour and deserve another chance to live.


Gladiator rules:

-When you join:
Spoiler:
-Choose a name for your character.
-Spend 5 points in the three different stats (see next spoiler).
-Choose your equipment (see last spoiler).

Please put this information in a spoiler. You are allowed to read other spoilers.

-Stats:
Spoiler:
In a match, each player has a chance to kill, a chance to win without killing, and a chance to stay alive after losing without being killed, depending on how well they fought according to the audience.

These are based on three stats:
-Strength: Brute force and stamina. Makes it easier to kill someone, makes it harder to be killed.
-Skill: Gives more control. Makes it slightly easier to kill someone, makes it harder to be killed. Makes it easier to win without killing, makes it harder for your opponent to win without killing.
-Style: Win the hearts of the people. Gives a higher reward if you win, and increases your chances of survival if you lose without dying.

Each match will be a simulation done by me and an ancient Roman random number generator, where your odds are determined by your stats.
Gain 2 stat points after each fight if you win, 1 if you lose but survive. The first is increased by 1 point for each style point you have.
If you die, you can just make a new character.
When you reach 25 stat points, you have earned your freedom!

-Equipment:
Spoiler:
Equipment changes your stats and could possibly counter your opponent. These are the possibilities (use two hands):

-Dagger: -1 strength, +1 skill, +1 style, another +1 style if you don't use a Shield
-Short Sword: +1 strength, +1 skill, -1 style, another +1 strength against Dagger
-Long Sword (2 handed): +2 strength, +1 style
-Spear: +2 skill, -1 style, another +1 strength against Long Sword
-Battle Axe (2 handed): +3 strength, -1 skill, and another +1 strength against Shield
-Trident + Net (2 handed): -1 strength, +1 skill and +2 style, and another +2 skill if you have at least twice your opponent's skill (without equipment modifications)
-Shield: -10% chance to die in combat (does not stack)
skill

You can change your equipment after each fight, but not after your third fight and onward, and also not if your match has been announced. I will decide who fights whom, and when.

What does "power" do? Is it the same as strength?

Is the trident+net's extra +2 skill bonus applied before or after the +1 bonus?

Whoops, that should be strength.
The trident's bonus is applied if your skill is at least twice your opponent's skill, without looking at weapon modifications.

So neither player's weapons matter when determining the trident bonus?
Is the number of stat points gained after a win determined by your style points including or excluding the weapon modifications?
Can any of your stats be negative after weapon modifications?

I'm going to make two characters.
Spoiler:
Name: Minmaximus
Stats: 5 strength, 0 skill, 0 style
Equipment: Battle Axe
Description: A large hulking mass of muscle. Because really, what's the point of having skill when strength is in every way better?
Spoiler:
Name: Dazunus
Stats: 0 strength, 0 skill, 5 style
Equipment: 2 daggers
Description: Not very good at fighting, but he got the staff to put on a fireworks display for his entrance. He doesn't really fight so much as party.

Correct

Including weapon modifications.

No, you have a minimum of 0 for each stat.

Base stats also have a minimum of 0.

Assuming I can participate as an audience member as well as a gladiator, I'll bet on the underdogs:
4 coins - Darius
3 coins - Dazunus
3 coins - Mai

Yes you can play as both.

DAY 1
HORA SECUNDA

The opening ceremony was a great success, with a lot of comedy. But now it is time for serious business: the first match of the day is Minmaximus vs. Darius.

HORA TERTIA

As Minmaximus entered the arena, the crowd went silent. Never have they seen such a large barbarian. The already large Darius seemed like a child in comparison. But Darius did not seem intimidated.

Immediately after the starting sound, Darius proved to be both strong and quick. He dodged one big swing of his opponent's battle axe with ease and stabbed his intestines with both his sword and his dagger. With his opponent wounded, Darius expected his foe to back off, but Minmaximus kept turning and swinging. Failing to dodge the second hit, Darius' head came clean off. His journey to the afterlife would be a quick one...


Minmaximus killed Darius and wins the battle. He will need at least two days to recover from his wounds.

Bets are still open. somitomi, feel free to create a new character.

SirGabriel did not win or lose any coins as no one else in the audience has placed a bet.

I forgot: Minmaximus gains 2 stat points!

Day I, HORA QUARTA: Dazunus vs. Augustus Curtius Placidus

Dazunus entered the arena with style, juggling and swallowing his daggers. The crowd went wild! Augustus Curtius Placidus calmly observed his surroundings: this was his first fight in the arena, but he had been on the battlefield many times before. Both gladiators did not seem stressed at all.

As the match started, both gladiators observed each other's movements, without attacking. After a few fake attacks, Placidus finally went for Dazunus' neck with his spear point, but with a swift somersault Dazunus backed off. Immediately after landing, Dazunus jumped for his attack and started hitting Placidus' shield. Caught in a flurry of dagger attacks, Placidus could not find an opening. Several of the attacks passed the shield and wounded Augustus. After a final turning low kick, Dazunus skillfully got Placidus on the ground and pointed his dagger at his throat.


Dazunus won the match. The audience can now influence the emperor's decision to let Placidus live or not.

Dazunus gains 11 stat points.

SirGabriel gains 4 coins, eran_rathan loses 4 coins.



Day I, HORA QUINTA: Mai vs. Servius Maximus Ahenobarbus

Mai the Retiarius entered the arena. Her skills with the net and trident should not fail her now. Her opponent Ahenobarbus seemed skillful, but not that powerful. She might wear him down somehow.

As the match began, Mai took on a waiting stance. Ahenobarbus went for the attack while making sure he had no openings for his opponent to throw the net. But the trident kept him at bay. Mai decided to attack with the trident first, but Ahenobarbus dodged it easily. Suddenly, Ahenobarbus decided to fight aggressively instead of waiting for the net, and for a good minute he was in control of the fight. But Mai stayed calm and waited for the right moment to throw the net. When a sound in the crowd distracted Ahenobarbus, he suddenly found himself caught and unable to move. While trying to release himself, a pointy trident to his head made him stop.


Mai won the match. The audience can now influence the emperor's decision to let Ahenobarbus live or not.

Mai gains 5 stat points.

No one gains or loses any coins.

Placidus lost to an opponent with hardly any skill or strength. He deserves to die.

Ahenobarbus had the edge in this fight, having equal strength, more style, and significantly more skill than his opponent, and only lost due to a lucky shot from his opponent. He ought to live to fight again.

Staying on track with my idea of Minmaximus being a minmaxed character, I'm investing both of his new stat points in strength. He's become an even bigger mass of muscle.
Spoiler:
7 strength (+2), 0 skill (+0), 0 style (+0)

On the other hand, while Dazunus was also minmaxed, I wasn't expecting him to win his first match, and thus he has way too many stat points, so I'm only going to spend enough on style to earn his freedom if he wins the next match. The narrative portrays him as a gymnast, so I'll spend the rest on skill.
Spoiler:
Dazunus: 0 strength (+0), 8 skill (+8), 8 style (+3)

Day I, HORA QUARTA:

As Dazunus poses for the crowd, his dagger aimed at Placidus, the emperor puts up his hand. The crowd was cheering for Placidus' death, but now they all went silent. After some lengthy seconds, the emperor's thumb goes down. Dazunus makes a spin, then uses two of his daggers to slice off Placidus' head.


Placidus died. eran_rathan, feel free to make a new character.

Day I, HORA QUINTA:

The crowd went wild after Mai's fight against Ahenobarbus. Some of them are holding up all kinds of bronze items in the honour of Ahenobarbus. Without hesitation, the emperor decides that Ahenobarbus' life should be spared.


Ahenobarbus gains 1 stat point.

Satisfied, the crowd went home, their lust for blood satisfied.

Day 2, HORA PRIMA

Early in the morning it was decided that Ahenobarbus should fight again. The crowd had been asking for a match between him and the stylish Dazunus, and the emperor had agreed. There was also a newcomer with a rather unusual fighting style, who would fight Mai. Minmaximus was being treated, and frankly most people in the crowd were not quite ready for another display of his muscle and bloodshed.


Upcoming matches:
HORA TERTIA: Servius Maximus Ahenobarbus vs. Dazunus
HORA QUARTA: Oompa Loompa Doompa vs. Mai

You may now place your bets.

Day II, HORA TERTIA: Servius Maximus Ahenobarbus vs. Dazunus

There were more people in the arena at this early hour than usual, as no one wanted to miss the fight between the two dagger-masters. Ahenobarbus had lost the previous fight but had fought well. This time, he would have to try even harder. His life depended on it.

Ahenobarbus started the offense immediately: he would leave no room for his opponent to attack. With some turns, crouches and jumps, Dazunus dodged the jabs of his opponent without too much effort. The crowd cheered for Dazunus, but some boo-ed as he did not seem to attack, only to dodge.

But then the tides turned: after a quick jump backwards, Dazunus threw one of his daggers at Ahenobarbus' heart. Instinctively, Ahenobarbus crouched, causing the dagger to land in his shoulder. He pulled the dagger out, but when he looked up his opponent was gone! Before he could look around, he felt cold dagger steel in his neck.


Dazunus won the match. The audience can now influence the emperor's decision to let Ahenobarbus live or not.

Dazunus gains 14 stat points and has won his freedom!

As Dazunus exits the arena, an audience member jumps out of the stands and into it, praising Dazunus, saying how the arena is missing its charm without Dazunus! He's carrying the plate he was eating with, and… a wooden sculpture of Dazunus that he made the night before. Sharpened and tied to a stick. Sounds like he's eager to fight in the place of Dazunus. And by the looks of it, he's been training too.

Spoiler:
Name: Dazunus Fan #1
Stats: 0 strength, 5 skill, 0 style
Equipment: bronze plate (shield), sharpened Dazunus statue on a stick (spear)

OOC: if anyone asks whether I expected this outcome, the answer is no. I didn't think Dazunus would win his first match. I expected him to lose but survive in every match, and then eventually earn his freedom. But he won his first match, and so he became the first to earn their freedom.

Also, do the 25 stat points to earn your freedom include the stat points you start with?

Ah yeah, sorry about that.

SirGabriel loses 10 coins. Pied Typer gains 5 coins.

Day II, HORA TERTIA

The Emperor looks at the audience, but makes up his own mind. Ahenobarbus has had his second chance. A thumbs down from the emperor causes Dazunus to strike Ahenobarbus' neck and end his life.


Ahenobarbus died. SirGabriel, feel free to create a new character.

The emperor was not done. He called Dazunus forward. "This man was an enemy of Rome, but he has proven himself a friend of Rome today. His deeds shall not be forgotten." The emperor handed Dazunus a wooden sword: he was now a free man.


Day II, HORA QUARTA: Oompa Loompa Doompa vs. Mai

Never before had the audience seen two gladiators with such strange weapons fight each other. Mai's trident and net were surprisingly effective in the hands of a skilled warrior like her, as they had seen yesterday. But Doompa was carrying an unknown object. It looked most like an unsharpened dagger.

Filled with confidence from the day before, Mai started the attack. She jabbed with her trident, but Doompa dodged the attacks and parried with his real dagger. When Mai left a bit of breathing room between attacks, Doompa took his chance. He used his fake dagger to produce the sound of a horn or double flute, but more annoying. Then he suddenly started singing! The audience could not believe their ears, and neither could Mai. As if hypnotized, Mai dropped her weapon, and with a swift strike Doompa struck her down.


Doompa killed Mai and wins the battle.
Doompa gains 8 stat points.
Maident, feel free to create a new character.
No coins were lost or earned.


Day III, HORA PRIMA:
After two days of fighting you would expect the audience to be bored. But they loved it! Two newcomers would quench their thirst for blood tomorrow, by killing or by dying.


Upcoming matches for Day III:
HORA TERTIA: Centurius Subarmalis vs. Oompa Loompa Doompa
HORA QUARTA: Dazunus Fan #1 vs. Minmaximus

The audience may start placing bets.

I love this kind of game! Unfortunately we can't exactly recreate it without knowing Lawrence's system for resolving combat. But we could probably cook up something similar. Alternatively, there are tons of old games that could be revived. We had a list at one point, let me go bump the game discussion topic.
