"Even their strongest warriors couldn't catch Snuffles." Martin hurumphed, as he knew much better about the hellhound than these idiots in their cages. "Bort, how you get caught?" Martin asked, mildly surprised that such a strong warrior who liked juggling knives and could kill so effectively could actually, be caught.

((Calling Bort that strong is a bit optimistic given his actual stats. :roll: ))

"Well, eeerm..." Bort says, hesitating for a bit as he seems to be trying to recall the exact details. Suddenly seeming to remember as he stammers an "Oh, yeah!"

"Well, mama always used to say to listen to guys in shiny suits. So one day, guy in shiny suit come and say- Follow me! So, Bort follow. Say put Bort behind bars just for a bit. Guy in less shiny suit come later, tell Bort, 'Bort: you kill this guy'. Me not remember kill this guy, but he seemed pretty sure, so guess Bort kill this guy. Da' always used to say Bort forget a lot. Then take me here!"

"Sorry, Bort forget." is Bort's only reply, as he scratches his head trying to recall this event that must have happened at some time... You'd think it's the kind of thing one would remember.

Narok frowns as he flips through his cobbled-together spellbook again. The monosyllabic banter between what seemed to be the drow and the fool was chipping at his patience... but he would have to be. At least for now.

The half elf sighs. "I might be a biased, but from what I am hearing is that you didn't kill the guy at all but someone else blamed you for it. It would not surprise me one bit to put an innocent man in here for a crime they did not commit. They don't care if you are innocent or guilty."

"Samuel, but names have no use here, many of us are going to be put out to the slaughter anyways. I couldn't make a payment, it was way too expensive, so they determined for me to work it off is to be down here in the pits.
I know not of Snuffles."

Martin is taken aback when someone other than Bort addresses him. "Err, um, I'm Martin." Martin lapsed into silence. "It was a night like any other, I had just finished washing the blood out of my clothes and from my hands. I used the wire brush to get it out from under my fingernails, like I do every time. Once my skin was clean I dressed myself in my favorite black jumper and crawled from the small window onto the rooftops. From there I ran across the rooftops to the Central wall and found my mark, sitting there, drunk off his ass. My dagger made short work of his neck, but alas I was caught unawares by the city guards and captured and brought here."

Martin pauses for several minutes. "Snuffles......is the only thing I know to call it. Gahhh, I can't talk about it or I'll have nightmares for weeks."

Bort was about to say something, as Martin begins his tale of playing the assassin... Pausing before stating:

"So why go back out when only just finished washing clothes?"

At some point during the next day a couple of guards followed by a four kids enter the corridor. The kids carry bits and pieces of some leather armor. The guards open one cell at a time the kids throw in a set of armor to each of you. At the end the guard loudly announces you have 1 hour to prepare yourself. After the hour passes two guards arrive, opening the cells for Bort, Viskek, Rez and an elf that have ignored you all thus far. They lead you through another path than the way you came down. Soon after another set of Guards come for Karn, Martin, Narok and a nameless half elf. They are also going out a different path than before and heading towards a new arena.

Near the entrance to your arena there is a weapon rack with one of each type of melee simple weapon. You can grab two (you don't have anything but your hands to carry stuff) and you can't take the same type of weapon as anyone else. As you all enter the arena you hear a booming voice

"Are you ready for another battle? These combatants have distinguished themselves so far by just surviving the initial bloodening of them! But that's far from enough for them to just rest on their laurels for such a meager feat. We've prepared a little treat for our combatants as some of you can see behind the wall. So lets hear a roar from you so both the creatures and combatants are startled into combat!"

And with that the crowd roars in excitement for the blood about to be spilled.

I should have the announcer speak in a foreign language :roll:

initiative: 1D20+3 = [10]+3 = 13

Bort tries putting on some of the leather armor, before remarking that it "chaves" and he throws it off, refusing to put it on- Followed by him collecting a mace and a javelin at the weapon rack.

Initiative: 1D20+1 = [9]+1 = 10

Glowering at the others, Rez dons the leather armor... a far cry from the plate he was used to, but a bit of extra protection is welcome.

He grabs the spear. It'll have to do for now.

Martin puts on the leather armor (15 AC) and grabs a shortbow and arrows and then steps out into the arena.
Initiative: 1D20+4 = [16]+4 = 20

Viskek refuses the armor, but takes a greatclub from the rack. It's not really his preferred weapon, but it'll do.

Initiative: 1D20+2 = [7]+2 = 9

Initiative: [1d20+4] = 12

Jakar the Wood Elf ignores the armor on the floor, arming himself with a Handaxe and Light Hammer from the weapon rack.
