Gladiatorial Season Off to a Roaring Start

It's that time again Sports fans and do we have the scoop for you. This next week is the beginning of the professional gladiatorial season, and do we have a hot series just roaring to go.

The first match of the season is a simple first blood match between The Morthosak Tigers and the Cuda Raiders. Both squads are experienced 5 vs. 5 teams, and with mercenary experience. I'm sure we will all look forward to the shield stylings of Jorak Es-Lirosok of Morthosak, who managed to take the Nethosak Individual semi-finals last midwinter. Morthosak is favored over Cuda 2 to 1.

Next Bakukal starts the first ever Woman's league exposition, with Tirana De Hrak of Saifhum facing off against Nethosak's own Margot Desludo, in a 15 minute bout with sword and small shield. It's a dead even bet at this time folks with odds of 1 to 1.

Brancha brings us the long awaited Honor Duel, between the LadyMage of Ergoth and the infamous renegade hunter Karat of Kalaman. As this is a spell duel, the first 5 tiers of seating are to be left vacant for safety reasons, or so say the gaming commission, but having seen a fireball detonate once before I myself will be sitting as far away from the combatants as possible. Betting on this face-off remains heavy with 10 to 1 odds in favor of Wizard Karat.
