A toothbrush each? How did you come up with that one? At least you could give the ZFP (in addition to their disc) the hand-equivilant-held tonguer (like a handphaser compared to a ship built-in phaser).

Oh, I did write that I'd have to pay the rent & bills first, that won't leave me that much $ or Credits or RUs or EUROs to spend... But enough to make, respectively keep me a *happy camper*. I bet that term has existed before, because I've heard it plenty abroad and I don't think that all of the people who used it have played the game - then again, you never know!

As for a good 1 on 1 - how about a Syreen vs. an unchained Druuge. The ring? But of course it's gotta be mudwrestling!
(Yes, I know, but I'd like to see that as well, knife included  Cheesy)

This could become, next to Frungy, a new sport broadcasted on ZFPN: Galaxy Gladiators!

Well, maybe if the Druuge in question isn't the fat middle-aged snot-dripping bureaucrat we always saw on the vid-screens. I know, Talana beating the crap out of someone has its appeal, but I think this would be too one-sided to be fun. Now, a battle between Talana and an athletic Druuge devil-woman would be worth something... the Druuge would have an advantage if there was anything to swing around on -- or HANG from...

Well, seeing as the ZFP don't really seem that dangerous, I thought a tootbrush would be arming them about equally, it'd certainly make for a hilarious fight. Maybe we could give the umgah some whopee cushions and itching powder as well...

*ahem*

"LADIES and GENTLEMEN!! Welcome to the 3rd annual Galaxy Gladiators! the best thing since FRUNGYYY!!

In the blue corner, weighing in at a gentle 60 kilos is Commander Talana, professional Syreen Vixen, daring doer of interesting deeds, protector of Gaia, and three times champion of the Galaxy Gladiators!

Armed with only her ceremonial dagger, in more peaceful times known to have decidedly nicer uses, she stands proud and tall, ready to face tonights challenger.

Speaking of challengers, in the red corner we have Tuuga, executive heir to Duulard, the CEO of the Crimson corporation!. Weighing in at a hefty 145 kilos, this Druuge brute is armed with the ceremonial Druuge "Chain of Indebtment", welded from the steel nameplates of those Druuge employees that Tuuga has personally laid off!

In a few moments ladies and gentlemen, this arena is about to see it's bloodiest fight to date! The Druuge hate of anyone associated with the Human Captain is well known, as is the Syreen distaste of these gross, slimy and deceiptful slavers!!!

As an added bonus, a chaos theory cloaking field has been installed for tonight, meaning that our combatants at times will be partially or completely invisible to eachother, depending on the chaos flux within the generator! this product has been kindly installed and sponsored by "The Spiderhood Of Dogar and Kazon". Remember our sponsors folks, they are what makes this go round!

All right, with out further ado.... LETS GET READY TO RUUUMBLEEE!!!"

LP, your little introduction inspired me so much that I wrote a very long answer last night for about 90 minutes. It included knife fights, the cloaking field, the chain and a was a very balanced fight. I was even gonna have Thraddash ring- and bodyguards as well as Talana's special fininshing move: The Syreen sirene ("Ah-woooo-eeeeeeeee!") when all males forget what they're doing (yes, the audience too) and just wants to storm the ring. She would have finished of Tuula in no-time that way.

But when I pressed the "post"-button, I got a data failure and the forum was on maintenance mode. Thanks, guys!
Now I can't get all the pieces back together and am just sitting here all depressed with my new bottle-bottom shades on drinking my $495,- worth of beer...

Awww.... I would so have liked to hear that... Well, I'll give you another one to write about Smiley

A Black Spathi commando that's been forced to listen to the same Melnorme Funrom for three days n a row vs. A Royal Yehat bird of prey.

The judge is a impartial Supox.

Allowed extra weapons can be hidden in the arena.

At least one hazard in the course (like the partial cloaking)

GO GM!! write your destiny!

Aside from that, I 've decided to save even more money, and make my shoes out of old cornflakes boxes... that'll save me more money, which means more beer!

I know the feeling, GN. My freebie e-mail provider has pulled that one on me at critical moments a few times. I think they got upgraded or something, because it doesn't happen anymore.
