“We got mauls, we got blades, we got chains and we got staves. We got drills, chainsaws, hammers, tenderizers, Gut
pullers, skull smackers, tongue rippers and pointy sticks….”

-----Grip Savage. RIP. Brutal arena fighter. Interview before the open championships.

A Brutal outfit is a term that is used for a fighter’s equipment. A fighter’s equipment has modifications to suit the
brutal arenas. Weapons and armour are fitted with energy receptors. These energy receptors absorb energy from
nearby sources beneath the arena floor once a power-up chaos pad has been activated. Once the energy is contained
in a fighter’s item (weapon, armour) the effected area glows with a coloured energised aura until the energy disperses.

Combat drug dispensers or Med-units are also fitted onto armours and wired into a fighter’s nervous system. Once
activated the drugs help ignore any pain and therefore they can in effect, regenerate damage taken…..until the combat
drugs wear off.

Weapons (Kill gear)

There are many forms of cruel devices that
are used in the Brutal arenas. All however,
are made with one purpose, to inflict
maximum pain and making it look
spectacular at the same time. They use a
variety of brutal looking weapons. These
weapons are often heavy looking and
simple in design but some also use drills
and chainsaws. Anything goes from huge
tenderisers to cave in a foe’s skull down to
sharp daggers to puncture a foes throat at
close range. Exaggerated butchers tools
are a good example of what a fighters
typical ‘Kill gear’ looks like.

Armour (KILL-SUITS)

Armours or ‘Kill Suits’ are normally heavily plated with crude nuts/bolts and wield marks. Jagged spikes, chains, blades
and remains of past foes often adorn a Brutal fighters Kill suit. Some armour’s are powered by arcane technologies.
These are very rare and sought after items. Some armour’s are grafted onto fighters like face, gut and torso plates
whilst others are worn. Heavily armoured fighters are slower in comparison to lightly armoured opponents. Cybernetic
limb replacement can also increase a fighter’s armour value amongst other things.

Cybernetics: Kill Wear

Cybernetics are mostly of a robust design and can
range from bionic arms/legs, organ replacements,
behavioural programs, weapon implants etc.
Cybernetics can be given to a fighter to raise his/her
profile. Some Lanista might give a valued member
of his troupe a replacement limb due to injury or to
boost him/her above there average (but never exceed
the maximum stat total). Cybernetics are very
expensive.
