Note: I do not claim to be the originator of this idea. Far from it, I'm stealing it outright from an RP that waas attempted on RPOL that is being shut down/heavily altered, in part because the originator abandoned it, in part because of running into the ToS. I am uncertain as to what will happen with that version, but if anyone is interestead, I've found this a bit... Entertaining. Originally called "Battle Arena Moreau" and run by "WhiteKnight" my goal is to simply continue a story/setting I found interesting, and I'd be more than pleased if there were others who wished to tag along.
On an uncharted island in the South Pacific, the great grandson of the original Animist continues his ancestors work. Unlike his notorious grandfather, instead of evolving animals to the level of humans, he has approached the challenge from a different direction.
Taking human subjects, he exposes them to animal DNA creating half human-half animal hybrids. He uses these experiments for his own entertainment. Some are forced to battle each other in savage gladiatorial games. To the victors go the spoils and they are given the best in quarters and living conditions. They are also given first choice in recreational hybrids, creatures created for the sole purpose of bringing pleasure to the gladiatorial champions.
Create your character. Step into the arena. Will you be a champion or will you become someone’s pet?
When you first arrive at the island you are completely human. Some of you may be ex military, some of you may have simply caught the eye of one of the Doctor’s agents. Regardless, you have been brought to the island to compete.
You start as a free gladiator. You are not part of any stable. You start with no money. You can earn money by fighting. Your fight record starts with 0 wins, 0 loses. Good luck.
Champions and pets
When you loose a match, you become the property of the victor known as a pet. There are a couple ways of avoiding this fate. If you already own your own pet, you can give that pet to the victor in lieu of your service. Otherwise, you can pay from whatever winning you have saved up (typically 100 credits per fight/service that you owe). If you cannot afford to pay, you have to earn your freedom through service. You will have to win three fights and give any prize money to your owner. The other option is to work as a stable pet and provide pleasure to three gladiators in your victor’s stable (Or, more likely, the victor his or herself). Or you can combine this (winning two fights and providing pleasure once.)
If you are already owned and lose a second fight, your owner is expected to compensate the victor appropriately. Your term of service to your master is extended by three more fights/services.
Higher profile fights my result in larger prizes and harsher terms for the loser. A standard fight has a purse of 100 credits.
The serum changes the user to gain characteristic of the animal that the DNA was harvested from. This will radically change the form of the person using the Serum. The Serum has been known to change the users gender, cause increased growth and mass, cause mass reduction and more. The serum will only work once on any candidate and its effects are permanent.
The following changes may be determined randomly.

The last system used, and one that seemed to be functioning quite well was as follows:http://futaformation.pbwiki.com/
I was running a character in it, who will be making a return, and will serve as an example for what can happen to someone who loses a fight:
Name: Ellyas Armartie
Appearance: She is relatively wirey, though its hard to tell if she's simply thin, or if she has sculpted muscles beneath her loose clothing. She moves with great care and intent, and her dark eyes seem to watch everyone in the same room as she, flickering between them constantly. She has black hair which is of moderate length, and her outfit, for the moment, is a loose, grey, longsleeve shirt and what seem to black sweat pants, as well as blue-black shoes. The pants and shoes are now gone, though, as her lower body has been replaced with a long snake tail with black scales...
Name: Ellyas Height: ? Owner: Berserker (3)
Race: Human/Cobra Weight: ?
Gender: Female Age: ?
Class: Brawler 1
Str: 6 Weapon: N/A
End: 8 Armor: N/A
Gra: 6 Amulet: N/A
P. Def: 66
M. Def: 63
S. Def: 64
Total Exp: 10
Total Credits: 0
Overall Record: 0-1
She also has a good bit of history, but I am hoping for that to come out as people interact with her and the story progresses, etc.

Characters here. I'll PM you as I go over each sheet, and when your okay comes through, post up there. After I get three or four sheets up I'll open the lobby for people to talk IC, and then the first arena once two people feel ready for a fight.
