Empty arena may not be the place to go.

Embezzling Scribe, Dangerous Criminal come immediately to mind.

Well, this guy's a replacement for a Shadowspire warrior. No tourney for him... unless he survives to ADM, and I don't run in ADM (or tournaments) anyway. Smile

I don't know if I'd call it 'cahoonas' as much as blind optimism. I've never graduated an AB. Never. And I've seen rollups that are as good as this, if not better!

Well, if he's going to die anyway, I guess the double 21's make sense.... but then he'll just sit in a corner of the underworld and watch the other gladiators (those NOT from Shadowspire) go out and try to win that resurrection prize...

Wouldn't this guy do better being more aggressive? Like a slasher, maybe? 9-3-12-17-17-9-17 ?? Not as 'pretty' as the AB scenario, but more likely to survive, don't you think? Or is it just wishful thinking, with that 3 CN staring me in the face?

I'm very torn about this guy. I must mail it in tomorrow. I'm thinking I'll flip a coin. But lots of good ideas here. And optimism. Very Happy

I had a guy that was somewhat similar (3-12-14-17-9-12-17 AB; not frail but even weaker) and I decided there was but one name that was fitting: Atrophy (I already had a BA who took the name 97 LB WEAKLING; he graduated). I was fortunate enough to get him back with Great Damage, he of the famed "changed the damage matrix from 5 ST/14 SZ being -N+ to 3/14 -G+", and +4 ATT; as well is my one and only AB graduate.... they all die on me Cry

If this guy is going into Shadowspire I would not make the 17-21-x-21 design. Probably go with Assur's 13 WT setup to give it a fighting chance at survival. If it make it to ADM you may change your mind about running it in tourney there... Smile

If you are really considering that route, and it DOES make sense, given your parameters, then we would consider a

On the other hand, if you do go with the 17-21-x-21 design AND get it to graduate, You would have no trouble selling it if you chose to do so.

I only only thought naming the roll up the dream would be that extra dig into your opponent after you beat them.Smile
