can anybody think of a reason to app any main guild other than Warrior?

Codedly, I can think of a few combinations that, while maybe not able to win in a straight 1v1, will certainly survive long enough to put on one damned good show.

If you're talking someone who can fight 12 gith gladiators and come out on top, well, that's something different. These sound more like "social" gladiators whose job is to entertain, like a bard, only their flute is a dagger and the music is the steaming blood as it hits the sands.

I'm not apping due to reliability issues. But I'll certainly be doing my best to provide buy in and support with my interactions with the gladiators themselves!

The Armageddon kitchen isn't a single track - this clan, this role call - it's all been pushed by Renenutet themselves since day one. They've been working on it for a long time while everyone else on staff have been preparing the other stew ingredients.

"You ungrateful bastard!" XD

I didn't mean for it to come off that way, moreso trying to continue to push in positive directions.  I in no way, shape, or form think this is bad (and I think it will be fun!), just expressing hopes that it will move in those areas where this broth gets -meaty!-.  A 'don't stop here, this can build into good things, as long as you don't expect this to become the substance of the stew', if you will.

Sorry if I came across as slamming you over this - I was trying to allay your fears - I had interpreted your comment as being "this isn't meaty, if only there had been more meat!". There is meat (of a sorts?) - as well as the meat that's in the Gladiator plot - it's all sliding down the chopping board.

Have we slaughtered this analogy yet?

Not until we get some half-giant stew, fresh from the arena loss.  :D

Neat!

I'm assuming this is what that armor submission request was for ;)

I will try to answer all your questions later today. Meanwhile, I want to explain that this is meant to be a permanent addition to the Allanak clans.

(And it's going to be THE BEST CLAN EVER!)

Did I miss something? Because I still have the following question:

I actually have a question for the staff as well.Will there be another opportunity to become a gladiator of this sort? I realize that you probably don't know but what I'm asking is whether or not there's a possibility there will be in the future or if this is meant to be a one time thing.

Eventually some of these gladiators are bound to die (just like every character in Armageddon), which will leave a gap if this gladiator thing is something you mean to expand open further with regular sorts of these characters or even go as far as to have more than three at a time. And I'm hoping by the time that happens, I will get a chance to apply for full time Gladiator PC.

Anyway, that's my question.

Awesome concept, and a great way to implement it.

You're not going to please everyone of course; I, however, love the idea (even if a role like this isn't suited for me).

GJ!

Sounds awesome. New guild, new clan, all wrapped up in one. Looking forward to eventually seeing the help file on it (I appreciate that it's not already public yet - IG discovery should have first dibs on it!)

I foresee a flood of <insert new guild name here> once it's mad3 available to the general player base.

I was literally about to post that exact same thing Ret, was going to say pretty sure it will be gladiator specific.
