GLADIATORIAL ARENA  BATTLE OF HISTORY 3
French Musketeer VS Sioux Brave

-----------------------

In the year 2645, the biggest form of entertainment is as it was nearly 3000 years ago; the Gladiatorial Arena.

In a high tech facility, with authentic hard-light replicas of ancient settings, people from all over the corner of the world (and beyond) do battle. These fights are streamed live instantaneously in 3D projections to billions of households where people can watch the blood spill onto their very own carpets.

-----------------------

Commentator: Let me tell you this ladies and gentlemen, the arena is not a place I would want to be right now. The Templar and the Spartan are cutting at each other like they are trying to fell trees and Im pretty sure that they could as well.

It took the Spartan about thirty seconds to realise that he couldnt attack the knight with all his strength or his sword could snap, so instead hes been circling the taller man and throwing in terrible blows to the weakest spots. If it werent for the Templars shield he would have been toast by now.

Theyre fighting back and forth, and so far neither seems to be getting tired. Have to say that the Spartan seems to be getting annoyed. Every thrust or cut he makes is countered by that blasted shield and then he has to dodge out of the way or protect himself as the huge longsword slashes down.

Actually, when you look closely, I think the knight is tiring himself out. Heavy armour and that huge shield and sword, youd have to be the Hulk to keep that up for long.

WOW!! Folks, the knight has decided to end this now and is attacking ferociously. His sword is coming down again and again, and hes backing the Spartan into a corner. Can he keep it up for long?

Hes pushing with his shield and swinging that sword like a scythe. The Spartan has tripped!

Hes lashed out with his word at the Knights ankles but has hit only the hard armour of the medieval era. The Templar is pounding his sword down again and again on the Spartan and OH NO! his shield has broken.

The Spartan is helpless in front of the ferocious knight who is raising his sword.

Unfortunately, the brutality of the attack has left the Spartan drained and there are no last minute ripostes. He is screaming in agony as the sword has cut deep into his shoulder, nearly severing his arm! The knight is raising it again and bringing it down on his leg this time.

I cant watch!

-----------------------

Well, while the Templar finishes hacking the Spartan to pieces; lets go to our next contestants who are entering Arena 4. You couldnt get more different people if you tried folks!

The French musketeer looks very dashing in his fancy outfit, but even that cant hide the face of a killer. Part of the Kings elite forces and having already served his time in the army, the Musketeer is a ruthless and efficient soldier. Deadly with that sword of his, his every move is regal and full of confidence.

His opponent looks decidedly underdressed by comparison, but no less dangerous. Lean and muscular, the Sioux Brave is the victor of countless battles. Hes fought on horseback and on foot, with bow and arrow and with those deadly tomahawks he can bring down wild buffalo. His eyes are deadly calm and his war paint is garishly scary.

To be honest, I wouldnt like to face either of these killers. Luckily, we have taken away the Musketeer's musket and the Braves bow and arrow which just leaves that long thin rapier and the two tomahawks they each arrived with.

Theyve begun circling each other wearily, both are cautious warriors.

Place your bets ladies and gentlemen; this is going to be good!

If the opponents were at a distance, I'd pick the Sioux brave because they were capable of throwing their tomahawks with deadly accuracy, but in the match, they're circling each other so they're obviously too close to each other to really be able to throw effectively. This then puts the Musketeer at a distict advantage and gives him the win.

The musketeer wins. The Sioux probably has little experience fighting against long ranged weapons like the rapier. Tomahawks are short, throwing spears are meant for throwing and knives are short. He will be outmatched by a skillful swordfighter. The musketeer isn't going to let him get in close. Then again, the Sioux being a natural outdoorsmen is probably fiercely agile, so he may be able to avoid the reach of the rapier and get in a blow or two. I still say Musketeer for the win.

Keep up the good work Culwych. The CBUB is in good hands.

Wait... Tomahawks are axes... Not throwing spears. Whatever.

I got to say, I loved how you killed the Spartan... Epic! Despite my love for the movie 300, the Templar humiliating him in such a way was just perfect.

Indians are savage and with those tomahawks, their going to be trouble. Grano's almost right, they can throw those with great accuracy... But their not to close to do so. A good throw from that range should be even harder to dodge, The Musketeer will need to completely expose himself in order to avoid it or parry, in doing so he will be hacked to ribbons by the crazed Indian. If the Musketeer had his trusty musket and the Indian had his other assortment of weapons, the Musketeer would take it. Here, however, the Frenchman is to use to fighting "fairly" and "civilized" to be able to comprehend this savages attacks and will be scalped within moments. The Indian will fight to his death, while, in my eyes... I see the Frenchman begging for his life if he gets in trouble.

Sioux Brave FTW!

I was referring the multitude of Native American weapons. They have spears, bow and arrows, tomahawks and knives, but no swords. Native American weapons were mostly used for hunting, not hand to hand fighting. The tomahawk and a few others being the exception. However, a tomahawk is a weak weapon against a rapier. Musketeer wins through distance. Keep the native american back and one quick thrust through the heart...it's over.

That's assuming the Musketeer can parry the tomahawk throw or be fast enough to to keep up with the agile Indian. I see the Indian using a jump attack or simply faking the Frenchman out... This is all assuming a thrown Tomahawk wouldn't finish the job on it's own.

They're circling each other. They're close. Not enough room for the Sioux to throw before being impaled by the rapier.

Come Culwych! Round 4!

Bloody_Freak - April 13, 2009 02:59 AM (GMT)
Circling each other doesn't mean "standing inches in front of each other", I'm willing to bet the Indian is smart enough to know "sword through chest, not good." He's going to be pretty far from that rapier. Also, why is a thrust automatically a hit to the heart? Who's to say he misses, or the Indian hits the sword aside with his tomahawks, or he's simply stabbed somewhere other than the heart? I see it very unlikely that the musketeer could strike the heart with the Indian being as agile as he is and as unpredictable. If the rapier does hit him in/through the shoulder, the Indian won't stop to say "Damn, that hurt!" He's going to go all out on the Musketeer, chopping him to pieces before he can even retract his sword. I see only a 1 in 10 chance (made up statistic) that the musketeer is going to hit the heart on the first try... (And only, since he wouldn't get a second chance)

Bloody_Freak - April 13, 2009 02:59 AM (GMT)
Yes, I want another one of these matches. Their awesome!

Well, at least there's one person that agrees with you.

Don't you mean "Everyone else is incorperating logic into their votes"?

I know. But, to be sarcastic, usually means you know your right... If you would kindly tell me how my logic is flawed, I'd be a bit more understanding to your "sarcastic" attitude. :P

Hehe. I spent yesterday with a much of pompous toads who debate everything. Sorry!
