I'll take two of those big finger things. Gotta plan for all contingencies...

Also, is anyone taking bets? If so, I'd like to put 10gp on the Goblins winning, but one of them getting seriously injured because the thieves ganged up.

SPOILERS:Hmmm aren't you supposed to be in a dungeon or something? :)

Alternatively, Arena Slaves takes place a little before Last Ditch Dungeon.

After overcoming his shock, Serves keeps on selling his wares.

Being a member of Clan Fourem himself, even though he went on long journeys to make money among human residences, he kew he had to help them in some way.

Seeing a few fellow clan-mates scattered among the crowd, he whispers whenever he passes one of them:

We gotta do something to help our Clan! I'll save some of my money from selling Beers, (and stuff) and hopefully get enough to buy a rope or some piece of equipment that I can throw to them, or smuggle it to them in their breaks. Will you help me?

Lonestar, could you do a dice roll or something, maybe each round, and have us get some equipment to the prisoners? It's up to you, but I think it would be interesting....

"Oi! You with the hood! Sit down, I can't see!" as I quickly cover my mouth and move into the shadows. As I stay quiet, I notice that there is a lot of drinks going around, some of it seems to be sweet stuff, for I can see the wasps and bees flying over and trying to take drinks. Oh how they annoy me so. Look at one that is as far that I can see and suppress my urge to try and make it burn, for it might harm us all. But I will get you by the end of the day. Oh yes.

I'm extra bloodthirsty, since I'm pretty sure these four guys are the same as the ones that always blew up my cannon in Sabotage.

Does anyone even like my idea?

Or is it just fail?

I did state that the audience throwing items would be a mechanic in the game. I don't see why I couldn't let you non-players vote on what gets thrown out of a short list, instead of me rolling randomly.

We'll see I guess. They've gotta win support from the WHOLE audience before they get benefits, not just you Fouremers that somehow managed to sneak into the city :P

Hey, I want to give them items too. I've got money riding on the lot of them. Except the one who gets hurt. He need to get hurt! Take one for my team!

Several ladies (by ladies I mean of the female persuasion) ooh and ahh, a few flutter brightly colored hankerchiefs in Lives' general direction. Although a few boo and hiss at him.. throwing dirt over the side and calling obscenities.

Boo! Imbecilic goblin!

Some one give me odds for the little red one getting knocked unconscious before his freinds reach him! I'll put 4 golds on it what ever it is!

I hates bad tactics.

But I will also put another 10 gold on the goblins winning the fight!

"Bwaaa haa haa haa," grandpa croaked out accompanied by a racking cough, "look at those goblins go!"

"Yeah," I said, drinking my sweetened water beverage and nibbling from the bucket of popcorn he'd bought for me, "they're really tearing them apart, Pops."

"They sure are. Heh, look at that one, though. He's in trouble, and a couple of them are bleeding. More blood! More blood! More blood!"

Grandpa chanted, no trace of his cough now, and the crowd in the immediate region picked up on it.

"More blood! More blood More blood!" they chanted around me.

My heart was racing. This was my first time being allowed to come to one of these, a rite of passage of sorts. I could feel the blood rushing to my head as I took up the call, "More blood! More blood!"

The goblins were a hit with the crowd, but I knew with certainty, that though the crowd would cheer at the deaths of criminals, ultimately they would also enjoy watching the slow wearing down of the goblins and then, finally, their death. They were monsters after all.
