Resplendent in silks and hennaed patterns, radiant with gilded hooves and tusks, the animals are led into the amphitheatre to the peal of bells and horns. And those placed together are often so exotic and absurd, it all seems more a holy pageant sacrifice or display of decadence than a fighting event.
In a nutshell:
- roll to see which of the almost 100 animals will enter the arena
- Each has an attack die of different strength-- roll these to see which bests the other
- Three rounds determines the winner
Okay, it's still Beta if you want to bet on the outcomes. I envision players getting to bet at the announcement of the first animal, at the end of round 1 and at the end of round 2. But the odds should really adjust based on the attack power of each animal involved and how the rounds have gone so far. Unfortunately, I am neither mathematician nor bookie. Maybe someone can offer a system/chart of odds I could include in a revision.
