Open Ancient Rome Rp


Recommended Posts

@,

 

Gladius chased after her. He knew she would be upset about it, but this was something he had to do. He caught up to her in the tunnel between the seats and the entrance, and he grabbed her, holding her close to his chest and hugging her tightly.

 

"I'm sorry."

 

That was all he could say as he stood there and stroked her mane. For the moment at least, they were alone the tunnel.

Diamond pushed him away, tears pouring down her face. "Don't do that. Did you see how quickly he took that pony down ? I know you are strong Gladius, but you cant take him on. We both know how dangerous this will be...and that you wont...you wont." She shook her head and sobbed. "I love you Gladius...I cant let you do this."

@,

 

Years of being steadfast and quiet, never letting his emotions get in the way, finally caved in. He started crying too.

 

"I'm so sorry. You deserve better than this. I love you too, but this is something I have to do. I'd much rather forget about it and everything else for that matter, and just spend the rest of my life with you, but I can't. Maybe I can't beat him, but there's no-pony else who can do this. The only other fighters who are anywhere close to his level are griffons, and I'm sure people are already turning this into a race thing, so a griffon fighting Ripper wouldn't help matters any. I wish it didn't have to be this way, I wish I could give in to you, but I can't. It goes beyond the two of us, it's about the entire city."

@,

 

Diamond let out a shaky breath. "I could do something...I can...I can get him arrested...no pony would have to worry about him Gladius...you wouldn't have to f-fight him." She looked into his eyes and felt another wave of tears coming on.

She hugged him tightly. "I...I can't let you die."

Gladius shook his head.

 

"If the law could do anything about it, I wouldn't have challenged him in the first place. Arresting him would be so much easier. But he hasn't actually done anything against the law. Deaths in the ring never count as murder, no matter how unjust they are."

"And your friend can really help me?"  The little unicorn looked up at Ari with tears streaming down her face.

 

"Of course!  He's the best!  Your little brother is going to be just fine after we have a little chat!" Ari tossed back his silvery mane and flashed his most reassuring smile.  The mare threw her hooves around Ari's neck and began to thank him between sobs.  He let it continue for a few moments before gently pushing her away with his wings.

 

"Don't get too carried away, my little pony...  You do have my finder's fee?" Ari kept an easy smile on his face as his eyes narrowed.

 

"Oh, o-of course, h-here, this is all the money I made this week.  Please go talk to your friend right away?"

 

"I wouldn't dream of leaving such a pretty filly waiting.  You can thank me properly when your brother is safe at home.  Vesta keep you, my dear."

 

Ari had a successful afternoon.  This latest scheme had a loose end, however.  He would need to catch a gladiator or a guard with delusions of glory later to find that mare's brother, but worst case scenario- he's already been paid.  Headed toward the Colosseum, only a block away, Ari heard a great roar from the crowd.  At first it sounded like a cheer... then extreme disapproval.  Did somepony lose a match he had in his saddle bag?  Then it got quiet.

 

"What is going on?!"  Ari leapt into the air and flew into an archway on the third level, tossing a guard a couple of bits to ignore him.  From there he picked his way into the stands to figure out what was happening.

Scar winced at the end of the fight. He slowly stood up and listened to Gladius say he was going to battle The Ripper the next day.

He rolled his eyes...that was totally something Gladius would do...the idiot. "Well Fire, I need to go prepare myself for the next mach...see ya later." He said, moving towards the door. But, he stopped and gave her a quick kiss on the forehead before walking out towards his room.

 

 

@,

 

Diamond sniffed. "I know...Gladius...I..." She tried to find words...but nothing came to mind, so she just held him close...not ever wanting to let go.

"Don't worry. I'm not going to just roll over and die quite yet. I'll think of something, I'm sure of it. And if worse comes to worst, I'll fight with all the strength I've got in me, because I have too much to live for... I have you." 

 

He nuzzled her and stroked her mane, not knowing what else to do.

 

"I promise, I'll come back alive, no matter what. I don't know how, but I will."

Magnus reached the registry to find it empty, of course it was, one of the most anticipated fights in the city just happened, every pony was still at the Colosseum, he walked inside and inspected the sparring room, he looked around and spotted some equiptment for blunting and unleathalizing weapons for trials and sparring, he was confident that he could win easily so he only covered up his spear, tieing a cloth filled bag over the tip, he then set it in his harness in jousting position, he then silently waited

Cicada and Mariposa stood outside the Colosseum, wondering what was going on. There was usually a lot of noise going on inside, but today there were shrieks and shouts; it sounded as tho everypony had gone mad. The changelings were in the guise of sisters; two earth ponies with grey fur and pale red manes and tails. Cicada had given herself a cutie mark of a tree; to her, it symbolised her talent for hiding herself. Mariposa had given herself one of a horseshoe. Her talent was for finding other changelings; it had to be subtle if they were to remain undiscovered. Cicada was confused about what to do; she had lived amongst the ponies for years. Even after her friend was discovered and killed, she'd still wanted to stay in the city. But it would be dire if they were to be found out; they would risk death, either at the hands of the guards, or in the Colosseum itself.

 

Glory searched thru her spellbooks til she found the one she was looking for. It was a very old book with the spells to summon down a god or goddess in living form, and there was a different spell for each deity. Only those who were dedicated to a particular deity could do the summons; Glory knew this. She was still very frightened about performing the spell, but knew that if it came down to it, Vesta was the only one who had the power to defeat the evil creature. No mortal pony could do it. Glory read thru the spell in her head, memorising it so that in the hour of need, she could perform it at will.

Scar chuckled at her excitement. "I'm sure it will be nice. The Ripper is nothing compared to The General." He said, as the two began to fight.

After a while the fight was about to end, The Ripper had his claw high up above the General, getting ready to strike.

Fire watched in horror at the scene that had just unfolded. She sat completely speechless as she turned to face Scar.

she watched as Scar left and sighed a happy sigh as he kissed her on the forehead.

Fire Runner flicked her tail back and forth as she watched the ponies leave the arena.

@,

 

Diamond nodded. "Promise me you will give it everything you have. Gladius...I don't know what I will do without you." She said.

 

 

 

 

Scar walked out into the hall and towards his room...then he passed by a few ponies who had just watched the mach. They all gave him annoyed looks and a few booed at him.

He walked into his room, wondering why they would be so angry...then it hit him. "Oh buck...now everypony's gonna hate griffins...buck buck buck." he muttered, putting on his armor.

Gladius nodded

 

"I promise. No matter what happens I'll find a way to survive somehow. I promise I won't die and leave you alone. You mean to much to me for my life to end so soon."

 

He held her tight and kissed her passionately. 

 

(I'd just like to point out that if anyone wants to just sort of awkwardly walk in on us, there's nothing stopping them. Just a thought.)

She kissed him. "I'll make a big pot of tea...we can have it when you win." She said, kissing him again.

 

 

Scar finished putting on his armor then made his way towards the Arena...but stopped as he noticed Senator Diamond and Gladius...kissing ? "Gladius." He walked in and Diamond quickly moved away from Gladius. "Well...sorry for interrupting you two love birds...but I need a favor...you need to let me fight The Ripper instead of you." He said.

Gladius blushed. He stepped forward in front of Diamond almost protectively, or perhaps in an attempt to hide her.

 

 

"I... um... this is really not a good time to talk... I... we were just... uh, yeah."

 

Gladius paused for a while.

 

"Uh... so, what were you saying? You want to fight Ripper? Wait a minute- you want to fight Ripper?

Ari managed to get the scoop from the crowd in the upper decks.  He didn't think much of it.  A fighter who displeases the crowd, victorious or not, runs serious risk of angering his trainer's sponsor and being traded or sold.  If a gladiator wanted to be sold to a quarry to finish out his contract, that was his business.

 

"Griffons, what can you do, right?" Ari joked with a pony in the stands.  Quite a few ponies seemed to be leaving their seats, but an equal amount were sticking around.  Another event was sure to take place in a few minutes, but he was up in the nose-bleeds.  If the pegasus guards hovering around the stands were any indication, there was probably a no flying policy for spectators, so Ari picked his way down the steps and into a vomitorium.  This particular vomitorium was no mere tunnel, but a grand promenade with concessions and gift stalls.  Ari wasn't sure which way to go to reach the stairs to the lower levels and found himself in awe of the size and scope of the place.  The arenas he was used to looked more like a peasant's stables compared to this place.

 

Wandering around he found stairs and made his way to the second level, still gawking like a tourist until he found another staircase.  Entering the ground level was like wandering into a palace- only clogged with citizens going in every direction.  Not paying attention, Ari trotted right out of the main entrance and found himself outside of the Colosseum before he realized where he was.  Having snapped back to reality, he gave and angry snort and kicked a loose stone off the road.

 

"Horse apples!!!!!"

Diamond stayed quiet behind Gladius as the two spoke.

 

"That's right...I want to fight the Ripper...everypony will no doubt look down at griffins as if we're scum...I cant have that." He said, looking at Diamond but quickly looking back at Gladius. He had a plan if Gladius refused.

Gladius shook his head. This was his burden, and he wouldn't let someone else take it from him.

 

"I'm sorry. You're courage is admirable and I respect what you're trying to do, but this is my fight, and I can't back down now that I've challenged him. Surely you can understand that."

Scar grinned. "You do realize that from now on...everypony will look at me as if I was the Ripper...the fight had barely ended and a few ponies were glaring at me in the hall. Plus you wouldn't want the town finding out about your little...friend here." He said, looking past Gladius to look at Diamond who's eyes widened. "Gladius...this is your chance Not to fight him." She said, looking away from Scar.

Gladius looked over at Diamond and sighed. He turned back to Scar.

 

"You have to promise you won't say a word of this to anyone. Anyone. Even then, I can't back down. But there is one way, of course. If you make a formal challenge and he accepts, we can fight him as a team. We might even beat him if we work together. This way, everyone's happy."

@,

Scar nodded. "That sounds good...a team mach. But doesn't he need a teammate as well ? And we need to catch him before he walk's off to wherever he goes." He said, taking a few steps towards the entrance to the arena...but waiting a minute for Gladius to follow.

 

Diamond let out a small sigh of relief as Gladius suggested a team battle...that makes things less dangerous...but she was still worried.

@,

 

Gladius followed Scar towards the arena's entrance.

 

"Not technically, no. The rules say that it doesn't matter what the numbers are as long as he agrees to it. And i doubt he would say no. He's too confident in his strength. But either way, we need to hurry and catch him."

 

He turned back to Diamond.

 

"Maybe you should head back to my house. The gladiator's quarters are... unpleasant, to say the least. Not fitting for a lady of your stature."

Diamond nodded but didn't speak she started making her way out of the Arena but turned around to look at Gladius and Scar. "Be careful...both of you." She said, before turning around and walking off towards Gladius's house.

 

 

Scar gave Gladius a funny grin. "So when did you and Miss Miss over there get together ?" He asked, nudging Gladius in the shoulder as they neared the sleeping quarters.

@@Stratos,

 

Both Cicada and Mariposa jumped violently as a golden pony shouted next to them. Recovering herself, Cicada said to the stranger, "What's the matter?" She knew that ponies were concerned about each other as a general rule and after so many years living among them, knew enough to act like one.

Gladius glared at him.

 

"It's none of your buisiness. In fact, I'd appreciate it if you would just forget that you saw anything. If word gets out it could destroy her political career, and it would be my fault for letting it happen. I would never be able to forgive myself."
