    The commentator on the left is out of her seat, tie off, jacket off. Her partner sits calmly, fist holding up his chin.

    “I don’t know if that first match can be topped.”, he muses.

    She replies, “You’d think that! But we’re talking five unknown quantities here; who knows who’ll come out on top. This isn’t just about raw power either, they’re going to have to think tactically about when to battle, when to dodge and most importantly, when to make their ascent!”

    “I’m getting a sense the audience is divided, but Jumbo Miyamoto and Sugar Rush are sharing the most of their energy here in the arena.”, he concludes.

    “They’ll need it. This match is taking place in the Ancient Ring, and it takes no prisoners. From the flame topped corners to the mysterious pagan inscriptions, there’s some bad juju right here!”, the other says.



    “Ladies and gentlemen,” the announcer bellows, “let the match begin!”

    El Gato Loco


    El Gato rides down the ramp on a motorcross bike halted by a couple of nondescript jobbers just before he rolls into the ring. He jumps up and stands on the bike while they hold it, then front flips off it. He lets out a big belly laugh, then slides into the ring.

    “I’m El Gato Loco! You can’t out-climb a cat! ¡Mira mamá, lo hice!”, he shouts as bounces on either leg to warm up.

    Universula Prime


    From the opposing side Universula Prime makes her entrance, her looming form emerging from fog that billows out from the ramp. She stands with both arms reaching, her head facing the heavens. She slams her arms down and grimaces at the crowd. She begins to march. A grand cape flows from her shoulders, which she releases a moment before she stomps into the ring and goes to face off with El Gato.

    The referee intervenes timidly. She backs into a corner.

    Blood Sugar


    The speakers boom: “Are you looking for trouble? Because trouble is here!”

    Blood Sugar steps out and throws some punches. She slouches off her hooded boxing robe and cracks her knuckles. She walks down to the ring, giving salutes to the crowd, then grabs the top robe and spins in.

    Jumbo Miyamoto


    Darkness. Then a backlit silhouette appears, and there’s a lot of silhouette. Stood on one leg with his body almost ninety degrees on a side, Jumbo Miyamoto slams down into a classic sumo stance.

    After a light pat of his chest with his hands, he slowly makes his way into the ring. He bows to the announcer, the referee, and then to the crowd.

    “ ベギン.”, he grunts.

    Diamond Jules


    Spotlights flicker from the ring to high in the crowd, stopping on the silvery, glittering Diamond Jules. Back to the arena, he flexes everything, then swiftly turns on dime. Carrying a white rose, hand on one hip, Diamond Jules makes his way down the steps. Just before he steps off, he throws the rose into the crowd.

    He hops up onto the ring, hanging an arm lazily over the top rope. He expertly applies silver lipstick, then tosses it aside. He climbs through and picks an unoccupied space.



    The referee is already half out the ring as the match starts! Jumbo’s steps shake the ring as he heads for Universula, who steps aside only to be gripped in an unsporting hair-pull bulldog throw by Diamond Jules! As Diamond lands, slamming Universula into the deck, Blood Sugar seizes the opportunity to knee him in the face. The silver kiss marks her knee.

    And that’s when Universula (risen damn fast!) hooks her off her feet with a head busting cross. Blood splatters across the ring!

    Meanwhile, El Gato goes straight for the rope, his momentum sending the rope (and him) swinging. Universula Prime wipes her arm across her face, then grab the rope and pulls it taut. She leaps up and grabs El Gato’s leg! He’s pulled down to earth with a thud.

    El Gato is stunned. Before Universula can enact her devastation Crushing Oppression leglock, Jumbo lifts her above his head and throws her over the ropes. She smashes into the commentary table!

    El Gato makes it to the corner, and pulls himself up. Looking back, Diamond Jules is now beating down on Jumbo! He wants him out of the way.

    Blood Sugar grabs the rope, and shimmies her way up. El Gato races after her. Below Diamond Jules has Jumbo in an arm bar!

    Blood Sugar falters, and El Gato clambers to almost the same height! The pair give each other kicks and jabs, trying to keep their purchase.

    Jumbo grunts in pain...

    “Screw it.”, El Gato Loco hisses into Blood Sugar’s face.

    From almost the full distance of the rope, El Gato double legged bombs onto Diamond Jules, knocking him clean out! K.O

    Blood Sugar leaps from the rope and grabs onto the bell’s ringer, sending a victorious knell throughout the arena.

    Blood Sugar has won... The Bell Rope!

    Outside the ring Universula Prime is furious! She throws the broken table, then walks off, slamming a fan’s drink from their hand as she passes.

    For winning... The Bell Rope, Blood Sugar has been empowered.
    Blood Sugar
    1 Strength
    1 Technique
    3 Agility
    2 Resilience

    For defying fan expectation (she didn’t have the most votes) Blood Sugar has earned the trait: Dark Horse.

    To the surprise of all, no one was injured all that much! The three tied wrestlers will still be missing the next match.

    Universula Prime and Diamond Jules will act as the commentators, and El Gato Loco will be the announcer for the next match!

    Finally, Jumbo Miyamoto’s relationship to El Gato Loco has changed.

    The lights dim in the arena and a big screen gives us the point of view of a jobber heading to give Al Natural a Ted’s All Place Burger with fries on a delicately patterned china plate.

    Al Natural’s dressing room is half open as he applies an essential oil to his arms...

    The only light in the room is shed by the old fashioned bulbs circling the mirror on his desk...

    EVENT VOTE
    (A) Al Natural is all natural.
    (B) AI Natural is an android designed to fight.

    Al Natural turns from his desk, revealing his muscular body and handsome features to all. He runs a hand over his groomed beard and raises an eyebrow.

    “For me?”, he grins.

    He takes the burger from the jobber and takes a hearty bite.

    “I love Ted’s All Place Burger! If you’re from a place and want to eat, what better than locally produced, free-range beef!”, he puts the burger down and leans towards the camera, “That said you’ve still got to eat your greens. A well balanced diet is important, as is limiting your intake of high fat and sugary food.”

    The screen cuts to a still of some kids eating Ted’s All Place Burgers.

    “Hey—”, you hear for a half-second.

    Al Natural is a man, a mighty mighty good man.

    It is time. Time for a tag team match. This early in the season no one in the audience yet knows which wrestlers are willing to team up to defeat the opposition.

    These wrestlers have been training together in secret, and while they may ultimately face each other one day, right now they will form powerful unions of aggression!

    Team A consists of...
    Deva Majestic & Magician Fist

    Team B consists of...
    Jumbo Miyamoto & Ghengis Charm

    Which team will come out on top? Will to be a flawless victory or a hard won battle?

    Match Vote
    (A) Deva Majestic & Magician Fist
    (B) Jumbo Miyamoto & Ghengis Charm

    The ring they will fight in is a secret, as is the statistics in play...

    In addition to your vote, throw out ideas for the names of these teams, and they’ll be passed on to the Board. The Board will select what they think is best, and those’ll be the team names going forward.

    From this point on these pairings are set in stone. Who could have guessed these wrestlers would be tag team partners!?

    Geth roll 1d20 for Team A, Wrestler 1
    Geth roll 1d20 for Team A, Wrestler 2
    Geth roll 1d20 for Team B, Wrestler 1
    Geth roll 1d20 for Team B, Wrestler 2

    Note: If a wrestler who’s out of play comes up, the one below them in the roster will be picked. Likewise if two of the same come up, I’ll pick the one below them on the roster.

    Team A, Wrestler 1:
    1d20 1 [1d20=1]
    Team A, Wrestler 2:
    1d20 10 [1d20=10]
    Team B, Wrestler 1:
    1d20 10 [1d20=10]
    Team B, Wrestler 2:
    1d20 14 [1d20=14]

    B

    Jumbo can tank both the others while Ghengis adapts to whatever the situation demands in order to help their partner. The other team just won't work as well together.

    “What an amazing opening!”, Diamond Jules declares, adjusting their extravagant hat, “While I was robbed in the last match by the worst dressed wrestler this commentator has personally ever seen, I’d say things can only get better! What do you think Mz. P?”

    “You are weak baby man who smells like grandmother perfume.”, Universula Prime replies.

    “Meow. If you’re going to get that catty maybe you should start a tag team with El Gato. Speaking of, here’s our glory stealing host for this next match. Take it away crazy kitten!”

    El Gato flips the bird to the commentators, causing Universula Prime to flip the table.



    “Are you ready to be awed!”, El Gato Loco calls out to the audience.

    The crowd cheers some, their questions of where they are and what this is all about truly lost to the spectacle.

    He begins with confidence, “This is the Torrential Ring! When the match starts a terrible storm of violence will begin! Rain will pour down from the sky and lightning will strike! You‘ve never seen such a thing! The rainfall will smash down on these warriors as they fight, draining them of their strength as they battle for supremacy!”

    Then he goes off script, if there is one, “But you know really, ‘Magician Fist’ isn’t to be trusted, that pendejo has no loyalty, so I feel sorry for Deva Majestic. Half of all fights are fought in the mind”, he points to his head with the mic, “so how can anyone win if you can’t trust your partner? Ladies and gentlemen, the Heavenly Bodies!”

    Heavenly Bodies
    Deva Majestic & Magician Fist


    Deva heads out first at a jogging pace, waving to the audience—looks like she has the most fans already. There’s a guy will a board that says ‘yes queen!’ with a crude drawing of her on it. Magician Fist jogs out a moment later, he’s waving too. Together they’ve got a sun and moon theme going, and are both wearing tasseled pants.

    They fist bump at the edge of the ring, then climb up together, matching each other’s steps. Deva steps in the ring, and her tag team partner stand behind her just outside the ropes.

    El Gato offers the pair the mic, then steps back.

    “And their opposition for tonight are masters of martial calamity! One is a giant who’s strength is matched only by his wisdom, and the other is a conquering warrior who knows only conflict! The Beasts from the East!”

    He throws the mic, which is swiftly reeled away. El Gato Loco hops over the top rope as the light dim to a twilight gloom. He’s chased from the arena by Universula Prime wielding a chair.

    “Guess I’ll just do the job myself.”, Diamond Jules tuts, “Lucky for your folks I love talking and I know what I’m talking about.”

    Beasts from the East
    Jumbo Miyamoto & Ghengis Charm


    Unlike his usual sumo styled outfit and his more formal entrance, Jumbo walks out with a thuggish gait. Both he and Ghengis wear matching leather jackets and black shorts with big black boots. They walk down the ramp side by side, and it’s Ghengis that steps in first.

    Droplets of rain begin to hit the ring as Ghengis addresses the arena, “Шилдэг монголчууд хожих болтугай.”, then he turns to Deva, “Nice tassels.”



    As the bell is rung the sky opens (or a rain making mechanism someone jury-rigged in the rafters) and the ring is pummelled by heavy rain. Puddles are quick to form in the deck, causing every step to send up splashed of water, adding to the already difficult prospect of fighting in this madness.

    Deva spits, shaking her hair out of her eyes. She goes to jab Ghengis, but he boots a ton of water into her face and peels off to the side. Before she can spin to find him Ghengis has bounced off the rope and flies back, clotheslining her to the deck sending ripples across its quickly flooding surface.

    He pulls Deva up and attempts to lift her into a tombstone, but she crotch shots him and moves to create some space.

    “You wanna fight dirty? I can fight dirty”, she laughs.

    They crash into each other for a time, until both are forced to tag in their partners.

    It’s at this point Jumbo Miyamoto steps in and begins to chant, slowly making stomach slaps and taking various stances. Magician Fist is unsure, but eventually runs and leaps towards the giant.

    Jumbo steps aside, and as Magician Fist gets caught in the ropes, Ghengis jumps up and with a double hand slam cracks Fist’s head off the top rope as he lands on the floor outside the ring. Magician Fist falls back in time for Jumbo to fall like the inevitable heat death of the universe onto him.

    Deva leans as much of her body into the ring as the referee will allow, screaming for Magician Fist to reach her, but it’s too late— No! Yes! He can’t escape.

    The Beasts from the East win by a pin!
    Stats in play: Strength + Technique

    The first A.W.E show draws to a close shortly after Diamond Jules tells everyone to Buy at Bernies. But what Bernie offers. Do not question this.

    The folks gently file out of the arena, as if awakening from a dream. It’s a pretty rough show, but it had its moments, most of them think

    Real talk.

    Petition Time

    Between shows (roughly a couple matches and events) the Board will take fan ideas and needs into account, bringing them into the dark crevice in which they furtively reside.

    The first three petitions posted will enter into a poll. The highest voted petition wins, and is permanently added to A.W.E.

    Your petition can concern the underlying game mechanics of A.W.E, future match-ups you want to see, or something related to the lore of the world.

    This is very broad indeed, so if there’s any confusion about this, it’s all on me, not you. Don’t sweat over it, post whatever idea you want. Here are some example petitions.

    1.
    Elemental Affinities
    Each wrestler should have their ‘elemental affinity’ revealed. You know: fire, air, water, earth and all that. When a wrestler has an element that beats their opponent’s, they’ll get +2 against them.

    2.
    Hate the Swing
    Fan power should be more important. One vote makes +2 to the roll that determines a wrestler’s result instead of +1.

    3.
    High Flying Death-Mask vs Abyss-Woman
    Let’s make that happen.

    4.
    Fan Points
    First, you’ve got to declare who you’re absolute fav wrestler is, above all others. Once you’ve done that, you earn 1 fan point whenever they win a match. We’ll work out what fan points do later, I guess.

    5.
    Romance Plot
    I just think someone should go on a date with someone. Okay?

    So, do you have a petition in mind? Get to posting wrestling fans!
