    I will introduce my characters Lore.
    Kamina was born in the wrong place, with the wrong colour skin - he was persecuted in every way - he generally didn't respond due to his naturally reserved nature.
    Then that day came, the day he was given a choice by his master - Lautrec - "You can die, or you can live - bask in the glory of our arena - worm".
    Kamina instinctively said "Yes" - His first Arena battle was against a man known as Gannicus - they traded swipe for swipe, the only thing keeping Gannicus alive was his lust for glory - Kamina on the other hand had nothing to live for - Lautrec had put his children - wife - and even his beloved sister to death. The battle seemed to last an age, Gannicus' onslaught was relentless - How did Kamina have a chance against this God of the Arena - it hardly seemed fair. Always a cunning person Oenomaus realised the arena was made of sand and the wind was coming from behind him - he ducked under the slash that would have decapitated him grasping a clump of dirt.
    Gannicus now ridden with dirt in his eyes could not see Kamina - he had to rely on his hearing - which was distorted by the cheers of the crowd. Oenomaus slamming his hilt on the back of Gannicus' head awaited Lautrec's choice.
    Death.
    Refusing to put his opponent to death he was lashed 100 times - this was unpleasant but at least the man whom he now knew as Gannicus was still alive.
    In those months that came to pass Gannicus and Kamina became comrades and good friends - Kamina started adapting to this gladiatorial life and started thinking about there was a chance if he was to defeat 50 more gladiators that he would be given 1000 Denarii, Enough to leave this squalor ridden place.
    Unaware of the difficulties that he would come to face Kamina stayed reserved - he refused to use any of the female slaves - he let his feelings about Gannicus using them build up - until...
    At the peak of his prowess, he was chosen to fight the most fearsome gladiator of the age, Theokoles the Shadow of Death in the city of Catarina. However, this opponent proved too much for even Kamina's considerable skill, and he received near mortal wounds at the giant's hands. However, he survived longer than any other opponent to face Theokoles, which the spectators counted as a victory and allowed him to live.
    Kamina spent a year in recovery from his wounds he suffered from Theokoles in Pompeii. Before he could return to the sands, he was elevated to the position of Doctore by his master, a fact which caused the current Doctore - Opious - to challenge Kamina to a fight and be killed in self-defense. As he was dying, he told Kamina that he had taught him well.
    Kamina was hesitant about using his whip or having a commanding presence, but would grow into the role over the course of a few months. The first Gladiator branded under his watch, Crixus, would one day become Champion of Carim.
    Again there would be a match against The Shadow of Death - this time he would not be alone - Kamina had a choice of which gladiator to fight alongside him - he chose of course his arrogant friend Gannicus.
    When they faced the giant in arena, Gannicus' arrogance leads him to be bested and wounded in nearly the same way as Doctore was, and it is only by the efforts of Kamina, and Gannicus' last feeble stand that the giant is killed, athough Gannicus nearly dies from his wounds.
    On the eve of Lautrec's celebration for receiving patronage from Arstor Glaber, Doctore watches as the Carim guards abuse his fellow gladiators needlessly. He brings the matter to Arstor, who dismisses it. He then questions Aurelia's murder and Ashur's involvement, and Arstor dismisses that also, lying that Aurelia disobeyed his orders. Arstor then announces that those matters will soon be Doctore's responsiblity, as Arstor has prepared documents to free Doctore and hand the ludus over to him, and he calls Doctore by his real name: Kamina. He then leaves to give Gannicus notice that he will fight to the death with Kamina at Lautrec's celebration.
    At the celebration, Arstor observes the deathmatch between Kamina and Gannicus. He notices something is off as Gannicus motions toward Kamina, the latter of which leaps off the shield and onto the balcony of the Villa, killing Arstor.
    Kamina enraged chases Lautrec down to the gladiators' baths and confronts him regarding his lies about Aurelia's fate. A brief duel ensues and Kamina emerges victorious as Lautrec pleads for a honorable death. Granting his last wish, Doctore prepares for the killing strike just as Lautrec whips around and stabs him in the leg, fleeing immediately after. Kamina chases Lautrec to the courtyard, but misses him hiding under Carim corpses.
    Having forsaken his title of Doctore, Kamina abandons the other slaves and wanders Carim in disguise, and takes to watching the continued games in the arena. However, with both the houses of Arstor and Lautrec no longer providing gladiators for the crowd to watch, the games are pathetic in comparison to those of previous years.
    With nothing left to live for, he willingly returns to "the only place left for an animal without honor": The Pit. He applies the white face-paint once used to humiliate him, and begins fighting any opponent that will face him (under the alias Addonexus), hoping to be killed eventually. His first opponent - Liberius - wounds him in the shoulder, but Kamina is victorious. Not only is he victorious, but he requests to be pitted against more fighters. He continues to battle opponents, until one - Caratacus - nearly beats him to death with a hammer. Before he can finish Kamina off, however, Catatacus is killed by Lautrec, as he leaps into the arena to capture his former Doctore in his weakened condition.
    After capture, Kamina goes through painful torture at his hands in hopes of breaking him and making him give up Gannicus' location. However, this does not work and a tired Lautrec attempts to kill Kamina out of frustration.
    After much waiting, Kamina, Crixus, and Rhaskos are presented in the arena for execution, with their hands and legs chained and each armed with a single, blunt sword. They realise that the "fight" to come is but a show: they have been given inferior weapons to further remove any chance of survival.
    They are shocked to discover that Gannicus has been recruited to fight among the opposing gladiators. When Rhaskos asks why Gannicus would do such a thing, Kamina answers by saying that he is a man without honour.
    Gannicus awkwardly greets his former brother, and Kamina asks him if the rumors about what he has done are true. Gannicus hesistates to answer, and Kamina, believing this to be a yes, ferociously attacks in response, beginning the games. Gannicus and Kamina focus solely on each other, unaware that the other gladiators are secretly in the arena. They appear evenly matched, but Gannicus manages to overpower Kamina due to the latter's weakened condition and constraints. Gannicus prepares to kill Kamina, but at that moment, the gladiators bring down the arena, and a canopy collapses over the two.
    After conflicts have subsided, Kamina begins to train the Germans and other rebels in the ways of the gladiator at their temple base. Eventually he and Gannicus and paired up against Crixus and Agron in a test of contest. The duo then cooperate together and easily best their opponents and thus establishing a sliver of trust and brotherhood back between the two.
    When Lautrec and his men attack the gladiator rebel stronghold, Kamina proves a formidiable opponent in the fighting. By choice he remains at the temple while the other gladiators use guerilla tactics to weaken the Carim forces before they arrive. When the initial wave of troops breach the wall, Kamina fells many of them with relative ease, despite still recovering from his injuries and being without his preferred weapons. Later, when the temple is under seige by Lautrec's machines and the walls are ruined, Kamina finds no match in the Carim forces until he faces the Astoran. Armed with a single sword against the Astoran's dual daggers, the two clash for an extended period. While they appear to be evenly matched for the duration of the vicious contest, the Astoran eventually bests him by stabbing him through the hand with one of his blades, and then through the eye with a final push. Then, twisting his penetrated dagger, the Astoran rends Kamina's left eye, destroying it in the process. Luckily for the former Doctore, Gannicus, seeing his friend in peril, kicks the Astoran to the ground and supports the wounded Kamina through the tunnels and to safety. Kamina would later recover to the point that he can do battle.
    Once again he finds himself doing battle together with his fellow brothers against Carim soldiers. Although not nearly at full strength and badly wounded from battles in the Pit, torture, the fall of the arena and his previous encounter with the Astoran, he easily kills several soldiers. Gannicus, spotting the Astoran enages him with haste. Although displaying a valiant effort he is quickly overpowered and knocked to the ground. As the Astoran motions to deal a crippling blow, Kamina intervenes saving Gannicus' life.
    Kamina delivers a grave wound to the Astoran's lower abdomen and knocks him down with a powerful punch, remarking, "I owe you pain." He then hastens to the aid of Gannicus and helps him to his feet. Together they deal many more blows to the Carim warriors. The Astoran recovers and recieves two more wounds; one across the chest by Kamina the other in the arm by Gannicus. The Astoran parries an attack by Kamina knocking him aside.Gannicus attacks and recieves a fatal stab through his torso.
    The Astoran, seriously wounded with a lowered guard is attacked by an enraged Kamina. Althouth the Astoran makes a few parries he is quickly overwhelmed and and brutally killed when Kamina rends apart his skull, killing him instantly.

    It is your choice on both matters - we will require the SL80 host, I am Sl120 host. I believe that 120 will likely be the most common SL for PS3, although we may have more SL80's perhaps another feature is that our services in a war could be hired?

    If you want to write a lore then it would be appreciated.

    Perhaps it should be made clear in the OP as to what SL we would typically fight as.

    Personally, if we were to have people truly invest into this covenant, I'd say force SL80 with no elemental weapons. That way, stats are precious. Just my $0.02 though.

    At SL 120, stats aren't that hard to allocate. Just pump into VIT, END, STR/DEX and get the minimum stats for the other stat.

    SL80 would be a lot more interesting and entertaining, but then again, some of your classes wouldn't work if that was the case...

    Think Noughts and Crosses.

    I was just thinking how it seems to be your gateway into whatever story you were telling. The best bit is that you tell such long and entertaining stories.
