CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT
Hodekin the Legendary Decapitator VS. Mogwai the Devious

This is it folks, the moment you've all been waiting for, the finals! Tape open your eyelids, pucker your collective asses and sit down to see the very first gladiator be crowned champion, this is history in the making! On either side of the magma pit we have our finalists, both small in stature but deadly in skill!

Hodekin the Legendary, slayer of Varick the Flighty (Twice!), slayer of Bax, the Prince of the Land of Stench, slayer of Orthus the Manflayer, lord of decapitation. This amazing little kobold has shown that with precision and hard work, any creature can rise to the top! He comes from a clutch of dragon worshiping kobolds and hopes to bring the gold home for recognition, and to be inducted in the annals of history forever! Weighing in at 20,000 Urists he is twice the size of his opponent.

Mogwai the Devious, purveyor of rude gimmicks, slayer of Narhtan the Crundle Bundle, slayer of Sam Squatch, slayer of Myrma the Defi-Ant, and slayer of Crush the Crusher. This green snot-bucket has more than a little mischievous side. In fact, I would say that he has not a single good bone in his tiny little frame. The deceitful little bugger has no purpose here but to cause mayhem and accrue haters. He weighs in at 10,000 Urists and is looking to trick Hodekin into submission. Will he succeed?

Ladies, gentlemen, and assorted others, that was the final match of our tournament! Mogwai the Devious attempted his tried and true, 'look over there' cheap shot, expecting it to work lowering his guard. Hodekin knows better folks, Varick fell for it. Removing Mogwai's left arm, his blood began draining from the small body, still having fight left in him they continued on parrying one another's attacks. Eventually the blood loss became too great and Mogwai succumbed.


I now give you our very first grand champion!

Champions may not enter another tournament, that is, until sixteen champions have been made. At which point there will be held a grand tournament for greatest fighter in the universe!

That sounds AWESOME!
There should be a custom map for that tournament! If it ever happens, that is...

I want to thank everyone who has participated, and everyone who has not. You have all made this possible. I remember when I first posted this, as if it were three days ago. I was very meek about the idea and thought it would quickly be abandoned, I am so very glad that that was not the case. Again, thank you guys!

Good job Hodekin !

Is there a way to import a character in Adventure mode ? We should make a gladiator pack !

Thank YOU Unraveller. It must have taken you a lot of time and trouble. I really enjoyed it.

Also the drawings of everyone are awesome.

Right! Now the first order of balancing business; I have increased the whip and scourge prices to better reflect their strength in this version of dwarf fortress. I hope everyone we'll see this as a just and fair change.

12 to 28 for the whip seems reasonable
19 to 19 for scourge is a mistake ?

Thanks a lot for organizing!

Though it cut into my workday on friday, testing out various builds, I learned a lot about dwarfy combat. I was very surprised at the power of the small guys! Needs some balancing here and there.

It was fun. Hail to Hodekin the Legendary!

Science is always important. But it needs more flaming cats. Can't we build bridge-based catapults and fling flaming cats at the dust and goo?

It's time for the ATHATH Death Counter to increase once more in celebration for the end of the world.
