[Success: 5, Roll: 91] With a rapid one-two punch, you jab quickly at a thug with both cestii! Critical Hit! A thug retreats when your iron cestus slices her fingers deeply. For an instant, a thug freezes when your iron cestus pricks her shoulder.


and then

[Success: 5, Roll: 100] Diving forward, you roll on the ground towards a brute, before rising up with a double punch with your twin cestii! Critical Hit! Clumsily, a brute fends off the thrust of your iron cestus, then looks unhappy at the new flesh wound. He suffers a gaping wound to his left thigh.

[Success: 5, Roll: 78] Pivoting on one foot you keep your arm straight as you turn halfway, landing a viscious blow on a thug with your iron axe. Critical Hit! A crushing thrust by you cuts deeply into a thugs abdomen and she disgorges her blood uncontrollably.

*wait two seconds*

Blood spurts from a thug's waist. She is severely bleeding!

One rogue after another. I didn't bother taking down the success and rolls, or the moves I used.

Devastating strike to a rogue’s back breaks it like a twig. A rogue falls to the ground and quivers for a moment, before dying

Quick, hard strike to the head snaps a rogue’s neck with a sickening crack, killing her instantly!

Aiming for his weapon hand, you direct your Iridine long mace towards Krystlus and hit! Devastating strike to a Krystlus' back breaks it like a twig. Krystlus falls to the ground and quivers for a moment, before dying

All of mine are screen shots. I just type them out as what it says on the image:

A rogue is stunned.
[Success: 5, Roll: 71] You make a quick stabbing motion at a rogue with your realq gladius! Critical Hit! Deep stabbing wound to chest stuns a rogue, but leaves her standing, but bleeding badly!
You roar.

You take a step back. You grip your blade tightly and begin a spinning motion, slashing at a rioter. You successfully whirl your entire body, striking twice! Critical Hit! The attack scars the ground, just missing a rioter's toe. The tendons of a rioter's foot get sliced and he tumbles down!

Payback for the miss the first time.

My favorite is:

A gladiator retreats.
A gladiator is stunned.
You take a step back. You grip your blade tightly and begin a spinning motion aimed at a thug. You successfully twirl your entire body, striking twice! Critical Hit! A gladiator retreats as your knife slices a gaping wound into his thigh. Thin slash to a gladiator's jaw leaves him stunned for a moment.

I just love that one. Nice damage it does, too.

My soul for skill was an even trade
With my honor, acumen and pride
If I don't live through today, it was a hell of a ride!

Thought I'd post another one...

You slash horizontally at a rioter with the tip of your knife. A rioter turns away from the attack, but too late, as your slash catches his trailing leg and knocks him down.

Oh, come on, if you want to compare needle strikes..

This is the whole fight:
Quote:
You arrive at the west side of the arena floor. A gladiator is here. You are facing northeast. You see the northwest corner of the arena floor to the northeast, the center of the arena floor to the east, the south side of the arena floor to the southeast, the southwest corner of the arena floor to the south, and an iron gate to the circular walls of the colosseum to the west.

[Success: 54, Roll: 72] You lunge forward, stabbing a gladiator with your retalq gladius! He suffers a faint wound to his waist.

A gladiator grabs onto a polished iron gladius with his left hand.
[Success: 62, Roll: 39] A gladiator ducks, whirling around on one knee like a top, but fails to strike you with his iron gladius at the end of the spin.

You are no longer busy.

[Success: 5, Roll: 100] Extending your retalq gladius in one arm, you steadily step sideways towards a gladiator, unleashing several rapid jabs in quick succession! Critical Hit! Painful thrust to the left thigh. The attack sheds blood! Glancing thrust to the right thigh. Painful stab to the left thigh. The attack leaves blood in its wake! Shocking stab to the right thigh.

a gladiator falls unconscious.
Several arena attendants drag away the wounded gladiator.
You are no longer busy.
Or here, how about these ones, consecutively.
Quote:

A thug is stunned.
[Success: 24, Roll: 74] Extending your retalq gladius in one arm, you steadily step sideways towards a thug, unleashing several rapid jabs in quick succession! Critical Hit! You pierce the wrist of a thug, severing nerves and sinew. Your thrust is anticipated and a thug's parry leaves her with only a slight scratch. Your retalq gladius scratches one of a thug's biceps leaving a bloody trail. Clumsily, a thug fends off the thrust of your retalq gladius, then looks unhappy at the new flesh wound.

You are no longer busy.

[Success: 18, Roll: 92] Extending your retalq gladius in one arm, you steadily step sideways towards a thug, unleashing several rapid jabs in quick succession! Critical Hit! You strike true and blood spurts from a thug's trunk. She suffers a puncture to her waist. A thug tries to stand firm, but the burning sting of your retalq gladius to a thug's neck distracts her. A thug retreats when your retalq gladius slices her fingers deeply.

And for the record, PNPC gladiators are spawned with 150 hp, and I can imagine that the regular NPCs aren't far off. So that wasn't any small feat either.

[Success: 5, Roll: 75] With a quick back-handed movement, you swat at a rogue with your iron mace! Critical hit! Your iron mace hits home on the side of a rogue's head, crushing his skull inward.
