The arena unfortunately had to be re-built for this gladiator fight. To see how it was made, please click here.
Like last time, I will use the Red Sand Black Moon rules from Two-Hour Wargames, as the rules are ideally suited for solitaire play.
This gladiator match, dear reader, is dedicated to Kloog, who touched all our hearts...
His incoherent grunts and sadistic use of the whip entertained the Providers for many years until he fell in the arena.
Living forever has it's drawbacks. Namely boredom.
Surrounded by just lesser humanoids, the Providers are constantly looking for diversion.
Stretching out with their vast intellect and power from the planet Triskelion, the Providers search time, space and through the multiverse, the infinite parallel dimensions, looking for potential thralls, to fight off the endless boredom.
A provider came upon, in his vast calculations, these armoured humanoids, who appear to be clones fighting some galactic war against machines. As per the usual practice, he abducted three specimens from their home dimension..
and instructed Galt to train one of them in the net, and the others with the usual sword..
Another provider came upon another type of interesting humanoid called a Jaffa that have another sentient entity inside of their bodies, a sentient worm-like creature whom the humanoid will eventually consider it's deity. The worm-like creature can bestow regeneration to some extent on the Jaffa. The Provider wondered how that will fare in the arena and accordingly, three specimens were abducted from their home dimension. Already adept with the use of their staff weapon, Galt was instructed to let them continue to use it, but without any energy for the staff blast.
The beings trained hard, and were now ready for a half-distraction fight. It has been decided to try out the net and spear user vs a Jaffa armed with his staff weapon/ quarterstaff.
The Providers wagered just a single Quatloo on each on their specimen picks, while the third, merely observed.
It was hardly an exciting match with just 1 to 2 Quatloos at stake, but it should prove a distraction for the morning.
Overhearing the talk between the two soon-to-be rivals, a Provider noted that both the Jaffa and the Clone were eager to prove themselves.
The Provider was amused that the Jaffa transferred his deity-worship to himself and the other Providers. It rarely happens with space-faring humanoids, but sometimes it does, as this Jaffa demonstrates.
The Clone Trooper seems also to prove himself to get back to whatever war and Republic he was fighting back in his dimension. Of course, he never will.
The Clone seemed excited by the match and was undaunted when the Drill Thrall Shahna told him
that he may one day prove himself, but for now as a novice, he must fight at dawn with the other dregs.
They line up on the arena in the morning's first light..
I also converted some other el-cheapo sci-fi plastics, which is fun in itself. I will paint them up soon enough.
