He must survive and gain again the favour of the crowd and of his master.
All the models except Spartacus play as NPCs, including Varrus. The three teams are Spartacus and Varrus as Dimachaerus and Secutor respectively, one blue team composed of a Thraex and a Hoplomachus, and one red team with an Amazon and a Retiarius. For being woman, the Amazon has two more dice in her pool but is at disadvantage if suffers a bash attack.
Varrus and Spartacus in the bottom centreRed team activates first and moves directly towards its nearer enemies, thus fatally splitting the team. The Amazon advances towards Spartacus and Varrus whereas the Retiari throws his net on the Thraex. After that, Varrus engages the Amazon and cuts her left thigh.
Now Spartacus and Varrus activates first and charge simultaneously the Amazon, hitting her twice on head and arm and making two scratches and sending her to ground. Seizing the opportunity, Varrus jumps on her and make a new cut in her left calf.
Red team is next and the Amazon stands up and catches her breath while the Retiari throws his net again on the Hoplomachus who dodges to his left, colliding with the Thraex and because of this, not being able to escape from the net, and resulting ensnared and pulled to the ground, suffering a scratch. The Hoplomachus stands up still ensnared, and the Thraex attacks and wounds the Retiari on his left foot, forcing him to fall back.
The Hoplomachus finally removes the net while his mate attacks again the Retiari but to no effect. The Retiarius fight off the Thraex scratching his right foot with his trident.
Spartacus and Varrus attack again the Amazon who defends herself fiercely, severely slashing Spartacus' chest (boo!) but also receiving a punishing trust in the belly by Varrus. The Amazon falls to the ground again and Varrus quickly dispatches her. First kill.
The Thraex and Hoplomachus attacks the Retiari who exchange wounds with the Thraex, both in their left arms. Spartacus and Varrus run towards them.
Again the Hoplomachus and the Thraex engage with the Retiari and in the melee the Retiari and the Thraex both result spent and fall to the ground exhausted. The Hoplamachus trusts Retiari's head but is surprisingly charged by a dashing Spartacus, willing to kill somebody to please the crowd and his dominus; Varrus following him as fast as he can.
Spartacus fails to wound the Hoplomachus, but Spartacus and Varrus moves first in the following turn and both attack again the doomed Hoplomachus. Varrus misses but Spartacus sticks his gladius on the Hoplomachus' left thigh. Now it is the Hoplomachus turn, who attacks with his one last dice in his pool, consequently falling spent in front of Spartacus, who cuts off his head in one swift stroke.
Spartacus and Varrus covered in blood, salute the roaring crowd. They get 12 Advance points and 25 Fame point each. Spartacus is once again in the limelight! He has now 14 AP and 155 FP.
