Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

The match between Skarrek and Ka'Lomera was, by its very nature, a much more modest affair than the official matches of the games. Even with the arena being much smaller and the stands filled with the other gladiators of the Trinivii kajidic, it wasn't filled to anywhere near capacity. Skarrek recal...

Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

Skarrek emerged from the med center to the training ground proper. As per the usual, Rasar was putting the Trinivii gladiators through their paces. If anything, he was being stricter than normal – if that was possible. It made sense. Verax was dead, the most important match of the year was on the ho...

OOC: More to come from me for pre-Vontor scenes, but this will at least get Skarrek back in action.

Re: Altered Legacies

The temple was falling to pieces, but the hallway Ruk and Hirai were in was still standing strong. It would likely be the last thing to collapse, with the idea being that it would have given Sorij plenty of time to make a getaway when he was still corporeal. As such they made it outside with plenty ...

The significance of what Hirai had done was not lost to either of the two who had observed her battle with the statues. Or rather it was not what she had done, but how she had done it. While Hirai was admiring her blades and her victory, Sorij Xor looked anything but pleased at her accomplishment. T...

Skarrek was a mess of wounds when Verax unexpectedly called for a halt in the training with Melis.

Kresh Lorda had a version of the Hutt Council that operated in much that same way as the main one, however achieving influence on it was tied more into the success of that kajidic's gladiators rather than on profits alone.
