Deep in the middle of a large valley, an ancient stone structure rises up from the ground. With round walls, the coliseum is far from other towns and cities, but people still decide to make the long trip to come here. That's because the Grand Arena is renown throughout the lands. This is where champions from all races, whether they be humans, dwarves, elves or else, can come here to prove themselves. No one knows who built the place, but it has the unique property of having a strong magical field around it, preventing anyone outside the field from interfering with what happens inside the arena floor. This field also prevent death, instead automatically porting out anyone dieing inside the arena, to the entrance gate.
The owner of the Grand Arena, and host of these games, is Fael V'Rakiela, an elven warrior who discovered the place as a young elf and decided to make it famous again. The rules she set are simple. Everyone is welcomed to come and watch the fights, and anyone can challenge someone else. If they accept, the two fighters can step into the ring and prove themselves. The only prize is honor, which is not a small thing, since the outer ring is always filled with people from across the land, and word spreads quickly when someone proves themselves a strong fighter. While most fights are one versus one, more people can also decide to fight as a group, but Fael insist that all fights be fair.
Because everyone knows that as soon as someone dies in the arena, they are instantly revived at the gate by the magical field, it led participants to try and humiliate their opponent rather than simply killing them. This can be done physically, by torturing them, or sexually, by raping them openly, in front of all the spectators. This often brings the most cheers from onlookers. Either way, as soon as one of the parties dies, the fight is over, and the arena is free for others to go in. The cycle starts again, with more people trying to show themselves as the greatest fighter to ever live.
So for this RP my idea is to have an ever evolving facility composed of the outer ring, where people can chat, cheer fighters, eat and drink, and the arena floor, where they can go and fight. A fight could end in a simple death, although I think it's far more interesting to have the fighters try to humiliate others, through physical or sexual means. I picked freeform because I think it's more interesting for the players to play out their character's performance, rather than letting a dice do it. I decided on a single thread for both the outer ring and the arena floor to allow people not currently fighting to comment on the ongoing fight. Please start each post with your current location.
The arena floor can handle only one match at a time, with other players able to prepare for their own matches in the mean time, or cheer the fighters, comment on their performances, and so on. Before a match, players should use the OOC thread to decide amongst themselves who will win and who will lose the match. This has to be done before the match start. You can decide amongst yourselves or roll a dice. Also, since this can easily include NC situations, along with some extreme actions, and the thread is in the EX forum, players should use the OOC thread to see what their limits are. Player limits should always be respected during fights. Feel free to join even if you don't want to participate in extreme fights. Fighters can be of any gender and mixed fights are encouraged.
To join in, simply fill up the following character sheet and head on over to the threads. My character is also available for chats and duels so that no one feels left alone.
Race: (human, elf, dwarf, or anything that would fit a high fantasy setting.. no demon, alien, god being or angel)
Equipment: (everything they can use during combat, including any hidden weapon they may have)
