Read Part 1 HERE. If only because it tells you how this is all set up and run.
Round 3 would be the first round that would see skilled gladiators in action, so had interesting possibilities.
Tertius had to select first, and had to put forward a medium gladiator. They only had one; the thraex, Bremusa. Primus went next, selecting Memnon as their requested heavy gladiator. And finally Secundus had to select their most experienced fighter - their only option was the unlucky Vocorix.
The pairings ended up as follows:
Bremusa (Thraex) vs Hero (Myrmillo)
Memnon (Myrmillo) vs Gracchus (Retiarius)
Vocorix (Dimacherius) vs Artemisia (Thraex)
Round 3 - Bout 1 - Bremusa (Thraex) vs Hero (Myrmillo)
Hero opted for a static defence at the start, waiting to see what Bremusa would do.
She continued to attack aggressively, driving Hero back ...
She responded with an attack that left Hero down on the ground. He tried to struggle to his feet, but a swift stab saw him defeated.
Memnon managed to knock Gracchus down ...
Primus - 8 Prestige
Tertius - 10 Prestige
The dead Hero was replaced by another myrmillo, Achillia.
On to Round 4.
Tertius was asked to provide their most-experienced gladiator, so went for Syphax. Primus provided Culex when asked for a light gladiator and Secundus put Achillia forward as a heavy gladiator.
The pairings for Round 4 ended up as:
Each bout was a novice gladiator vs a skilled one, so had extra Prestige at stake.
Hippolytus earned 3 Prestige for Secundus.
Culex (Veles) - 1 Bout
Secundus - 9 Prestige
Vocorix (Dimacherius) - 2 Bouts, +1 Attack
Tertius - 12 Prestige
*The Scissor will have the stat profiles of a Myrmillo, so is a heavy gladiator, but the Glory abilities of a Dimacherius.
