Fisticuffs 2: This time, it's not Fisticuffs 1

Recommended Posts

So a while back I had the idea for a charity boxing match between a bunch of the PC's. This is a different take on that same idea that came up in Chat the other day, so I'd figure I'd throw it up on here to see if we can get the ball rolling on it. This thread is set after the Grue Invasion, at this point in time, the city is pretty wrecked. During the battle or during the clean up, one of the heroes stumbled upon an abandoned Circus Maximus arena.

They sent out word to other heroes to come to the arena to spar with one another. Should another invasion happen, they need to be prepared. It would also be good for the other heroes to know their capabilities. This thread occurs away from prying eyes, so even heroes who aren't particularly keen on being in the public eye can show up.

Is anyone interested?

Sure, count Wander in. She hasn't seriously injured anyone in ages, so she can probably be trusted in a sparring match. Besides, getting some practice with other heroes might help her expand her rather limited repertoire. :D

I'm interested, probably with Mongrel Angel since she'd relish the chance to cut loose a little.

This'd be up Jack's alley; he's more the sparing type, and Midnight's build isn't really ready for PvP action yet.

Both my chars would be interested... but if Wander's there, having Dead Head show up could be a monumentally bad thing.

(Unless they'd already met and come to terms during the Invasion....)

I'm going to be using Dynamo for this. From a purely mechanical perspective, Altas' build will be significantly different post invasion than it is now. In addition, he'll be focused almost entirely on helping to rebuild the city he helped break.

I think I'll sign Lukos up for this one. He's more given to violence than my other two characters, and since this one isn't for charity...

Maybe this could be some kind of experiment Dr. Archeville wants to run on him as a follow up to their interview.

I also am exploring some new options for his powers that I may be submitting as part of this month's updates. So this may be a good chance to give them a test run.

Due to the somewhat traumatic nature of her last bout, Grim may well take a pass on this, but Gossamer would be very interested. I still might have Grim participate if we somehow split it into two or more threads, though, since I don't like the thought of having both my PCs in the same thread.

While Rycon is at too low a level to participate (even then, she would probably get her butt kicked hard), would it be possible that she could be a spectator?

I'd be interested. James/Hellion obviously as DS would take a poor view on such needless violence! ;)

Yeah spectating is fine.

Well seeing Dead Head would be a good way to test Wander's restraint training. ;)

I'm calling dibs on fighting Avenger right now. This board needs more Vampire Vs. Werewolf action. I don't care that there's a 4 PL difference. I plan on putting up a fight ;)

Hokay, so, we have the following:

Lukos vs Avenger (assuming AA doesn't mind kicking the crap out of one of quote's characters ;) )

Wander

Mongrel Angel

Jack of All Blades

Dead Head / Dr. Archeville

Dynamo

Gossamer, maybe Grim as well

Rycon (spectator)

Hellion

Fulcrum

so 8 other participants.

Here's my initial thoughts on who's fighting who:

Fulcrum vs Mongrel Angel

Gossamer vs JoAB

Wander vs Dynamo

Hellion vs Dead Head

Subject to radical change of course. We could also do team battles, if so inclined.

Wasn't there talk of Wander vs. Dead Head? You know, to limit the number of casualties to the, well, already dead?

Y'know, being the only spectator here wouldn't be any fun, so why not have her enter? I know she would get her butt kicked like Jack of All Blades got his kicked during the demon invasion last year, but I think it would be good (if painful) experience for her.

I guess it wont hurt to get Carbon in as well. Probably will be squashed in first round anyway.

Avenger

Wander

Mongrel Angel

Jack of All Blades

Dead Head and/or Dr. Archeville

Grim vs Geckoman - The Undercaps

Rycon vs Geckoman - Those wacky kids

Fulcrum vs Mongrel Angel - Flying Brick Battle

Gossamer vs JoAB - Gizmo beats up another one of Heritagae's characters ;)

Wander vs Dynamo - Old School vs New School

Hellion vs Dead Head - Demon vs Zombie

Carbon vs Divine - Brick vs Golden Brick

Dynamo vs Divine - For the Lulz

Gossamer vs Dr. Archeville - A Battle of Science!

Hellion vs JoAB - Battle of the pretty boys

Divine vs Wander - Power vs Finesse

Fulcrum vs Dynamo - Battle of the Energy Converters

I probably missed someone, if so, sorry. I was just writing these down as they came to me.

Lookin' good :)

Will those of us with Inventor or Ritualist be allowed to bring something to the Arena?

Yes, but you have no idea who your opponent is. You just know you're going to spar with some of the city's other heroes.
