xD Thanks, Endurance is your health stat.
So... >.> Marbles. Fun, yeah? Unfortunately, not that type of marbles. In the vein of ripping off Fire Emblem, I'm looking at a new system to fulfill my own desires. I don't really know what systems there are already out there, but this is, at least what I think, I want. So this is what I'm going to use. But more on this in a bit; first, the story:


We chosen few have been sent from our normal lives to fulfill the role only heroes travel down. Down a path of pain, suffering, reward, and power. This tale is not a happy one, but one we hope ends in favor of a brighter future. The entire world will be enveloped in an inescapable darkness that not even the brightest of stars can illuminate. Mankind's only hope is destroy the source of this shadow in the distant future, after the darkness has expended itself in conquering the world. Enter our heroes. Beings from the past, before the darkness had taken hold of the earth; pure of its infection. We group of beings out of time can interact with the splinters of magic brought by the darkness to fuel our abilities further in the dream to one day return the world to light.





This is just the basic system for the interest check. Feel free to ask questions on anything I might have missed, or things you are just unclear about. As for party size, I'd think 4~ish is a doable start. I'd like to not get too ambitious as I try to piece together this hectic mess, but I'll try to take in as much as I can. Most rolling will be done on discord, and this will be mostly play by post because of time restraints. Saturdays will be most of my game management days, though I'll have time all through the week.



It was a wonderful night, sleeping in the lap of luxury. though now that morning had come, it was time to fulfill their end of the agreement. The party was quickly ushered down to the arena once she had signed away her participation to this contest. All the rules were pretty standard, though the fact they couldn't leave the island at all until the tournament's completion struck a bit of a sour note. She understood why, but it almost screamed its a trap the way she read it.

They were given a minute to prepare, which was more than enough time for her to do what she needed to do. Greeting the tin man as he joined up. Elora readied her bow, nocking it and watching as an arrow formed and readied itself. A faint smile spread across her face. She was ready. Though she removed the arrow, letting it dissolve in her hand. No need keep her bow primed until the match had officially begun.
Anna the Merchant



It was always nice doing business with folk, but it was too bad that she wouldn't be able to restock her supply until she found a way back. Furthermore, even though the halfling seemed to recognize some of her items; a lot of her stuff still seemed foreign to her. Not that the party didn't look foreign to herself, but she'd might have to help out the party when making a selection. Whatever got her paid. Anna hopped back to the camp everyone was sitting at. "Good news everyone~ My items, while supplies last, are free to be sold. I'll have the prices marked as such, but I'm afraid this is all I have until I'm sent back to my world to restock. Sadly, this also means this is what food we have until then. I just checked the woods and the small pond on the other side. No such beasts to gain food from. Ah well.~" Joining the rest of the group, Anna didn't do much unless directly interacted with. Usually off in her own world, humming a tune or a lullaby.



With a grumble, Harridan went back to the merchant. "Are you sure you wont sell me that shoddy bow of yours? .... In that case I'll take one of them Blessed Shortbows of yours. I'll need a quiver full of arrows as well." It was forever ago since she last touched a real weapon. But this was the place, if any, to pick one up again. Not that she had to use it, but now it was an option.

"Thanks for your purchase; no refunds~"

"Yeah." Harridan began rearranging her bags, putting her backpack inside her bag of holding and grabbing her weapons and rods; putting them in a place with easy access.



Harridan kept tabs on the merchant while everyone spoke. It was interesting to see someone who seemed to actually have some inkling of what this place actually was. Still, she looked familiar and that could mean trouble. Returning back to the group, her frog followed behind her and she replied to the cleric. "While, I'm sure you're not tired at all; you should take a rest along with everyone else. No telling when another light show will bring more trouble. If you want, you can keep me company. I'll be standing guard all night in case someone does appear."

"And you, goat girl; not so fast. The dwarf has a better idea, of sitting and waiting. At least until we're all ready. While I'm sure nothing is going to randomly exit the structure, no need to barge in at the end of our peak performance. And you, valkyrie." For some reason Harridan had trouble looking at the bathed woman; adverting her eyes to the skies and studying the lack of clouds. "I'm sure it will be some time before snow falls, if that horse of yours told us something accurate. Find something warm."

Harridan pulled out her bed roll and laid it down in a bundle with her bag of holding and back pack; pulling out a handful of platinum pieces. "And you, merchant. Let us discuss business in private. I'm curious on what wares you hold." Harridan leading her north, behind one of the trees.
Anna the Merchant



"Tehee, thank you kindly for giving me a chance. My name's Anna, a travelling merchant out to make a quick buck. But, are you not the ones who summoned us? No, that is rather odd. Being the one who arrived here, I would be the one coming to visit you under normal circumstances. Except I was whisked away without any warning. Hmm. Well, I don't know anything about how I was taken with out any action on my part; but this place seems oddly familiar to one of the other worlds that pop up once and again. Normally you have to travel through such a place to visit the other side, but I was just on a convoy with other merchants like myself."

The two newest surviving additions to the field seemed quite interesting. The zombies obviously no match for the cleric, though the merchant seemed more carefree of being whisked away to a strange place in the middle of a warzone. "Try as you might, it seems you two might be stuck here the same as us. Unless you have some ungodly power to break us all out. I-" Well, she would've talked more, but instead cleared her throat and pretended as if she had nothing else to say. Best to let the rest of the party determine for themselves if to keep or fight the cleric and merchant. Harridan casually walked over to her frog and pretended to do some maitenece as she stared off in the distance towards the tower. Playing close attention to the group behind her.

The merchant sensing the end of combat began to repack the weapons she brought out. No since in wasting potential merchandise. Though, it seemed like the dwarf had other plans. Twice Rygar tried to grapple her, and twice he failed. Not that she minded. She knew raging barbarians don't always think for themselves enough. "Hey~ Not so fast. Precaution or not, I'm still a lady~" She finished gathering her things and smiled at the group. She was quite intrigued on how well they were able to clear the field. Hopefully they had cash equal to their skill.


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


The light solidifies and takes shape. Revealing the face of 15 undead mindlessly shambling in place. However, the zombies were not the only ones pulled through as amongst their numbers were two people caught in whatever conflict fate had sent them in to. One, a black tabaxi. And the other, a human merchant (judging by the bag of wares strapped to her back).

Vale quickly finished the book she was reading. There was an invitation to join everyone for dinner, though that mattered little to the halfling. She would join up, but no sense keeping herself from finishing this last book. There wasn't that much left anyway. The rest of the party had left the room by the time she closed the book. She wasn't far behind, but she wasn't in any rush. As long as they didn't start with dessert first, that is. Happily she skipped along, eyeing the comfortable decor as she searched for the feast.

It wasn't that hard to find, though it seemed she wasn't going to be the latest one. Rather than sitting down immediately, Vale circled the table eyeing the meal that was prepared. It looked wonderful. It almost made her mouth water, but there wasn't anything out that truly interested her; opting not to grab any of the food laid out. Finding an open vacant seat, she hopped in her now claimed chair and began humming to herself. Shame that her dress wasn't made yet. It would've looked lovely at a dinner like this. "Well then. Sorry I'm late, though it doesn't seem like I missed too much. Just finishing looking at some of the books. Anyone find anything on the giants up north? If not, is fine; I plan on studying the night away if our host would be so permitting. I can also round out searching for topics any of us might needed extra time on. Oh, and do tell me if you visit the gardens of Carnessa. I found a book, written in one of those infernal languages of course; but it looked like the most beautiful places. Much better than the forest I lived in for most of my life."
"Well, wasn't that exciting folks!? First of all, can we get a round of applause for our newest group? Not even a minute in, and already they are giving you what you came to see. That darned witch thought she could escape the clutches of her summoned peers, but Nope! They sure showed her! Too bad about that one girl, though. It seemed something happened in the middle of the rainbow barrier; but that's probably best left behind closed curtains." Wink. "Though, that dwarf sure did escape in a hurry, am I right? Haha!"

"Anyhow, it seemed our little ninja friend had unfortunately became frog food; leaving just four combatants remaining. Four combatants who seemed to made some sort of peace with each other, but fret not! They will learn their sad truth soon enough folks, or be eliminated in the process; and have we just yet to get started! We here at Galaxy Gladiators pride ourselves on making the best pairings possible for viewers like you. We know any number of things can happen on the battlefield and can guarantee a good show. More survivors, means bigger battles And do we have a big one for you tonight!"



The sky darkened; a bright full moon replacing the sun and casting a clean light across the field. Nothing stood out of the ordinary of the general wilderness. Though, behind the group; a dim light started to appear. Growing ever brighter as it resembled the same bright lights that brought them there and took the others away. It was evident that a bunch of things were headed their way. Based off the rate the light grew, the party could estimate they had roughly a round before the light would turn into a solid mass.
