Audience Participation Machine

Ever wanted to see what it's like on the inside of the arena? Did a gladiator kill one of your favourites last week? Is the home game not visceral enough for you? Why not buy a ticket to vote on the Audience Participation Machine! Join with your fellow spectators to pick one of three exciting weapons to eliminate gladiators with! It's a blast!


540 HP / 30 EP / 5 EVA / 6 SPD / 0 HAND

Mortar Arm: 3-24 squares in an arc* / 0 / very strong piercing / 6 single-fire shells

Fires in an arc instead of a straight line. To shoot in an arc, the shell follows these three steps:

1. Fly up at least 6 squares

2. Move horizontally at least 3 squares

3. Fall down any amount of squares

Hits the first thing it contacts during this trajectory, assuming the shell has not moved more than 24 squares at that point.

Heavy Machinegun Arm: Up to five times: 12 squares / -25 / average piercing / 2 hands / 1 belt of 25 rounds

If firing only once, ignore the -25 accuracy penalty.

Rockets: 24 squares / 0 / lethal piercing + area attack / 2 hands / 2 single-fire rockets

Area attack: 3 square radius where it lands / 0 / half the damage rolled for the initial attack.

If the rocket misses its first attack, it follows the trajectory until it hits a hard surface, at which point it explodes. If during this trajectory it passes by another character, it might hit them instead; roll to hit at minus 10, or minus 20 if it's the second character for it to pass by, et cetera.

Standard action to reload.

Jetpack: You can fly at your movement speed plus 2 squares. -10 evasion while flying.

Huge Body: The APM takes up a 3x3 square space. It is three times the size of the average character.
