He is proud of his ancestory and has been in fights since he was a child defending the history of the Allahad tribe from other tribes, and, he has talked to the empress of The Last Tribe on many occasions for spiritual and military guidance.

Part 2- Warrior
Appearance of warrior: http://www.kyleanderson.com/images/haradrim_king_by_Kyle_Anderson.jpg
Historical Battles/Significance, Lifestyle: Getting the tribes to follow a single leader, somthing that has never happened before. Over two dozen duels, showing that he was indeed a strong willed man. The Siege of Vissa, destroying the greatest city and army the Muu continant had left. The Allahad tribe had a tradition of never showing skin other than the eyes and fingers to anyone that was not a spouse or family member. Giving them a mysterious disposition, even today it is not known what Iban Se-shan Allahad really looked like.
Warrior Bio: The man that would eventually be called,"The Unifier of Muu" was born the third child of seven (him being the only boy) his father, Bodan Se-shan Allahad, was a councilor to his tribes chief. Iban started his life of war when he was 12 years old when he recived his knife and went on a raid with his tribe. During this raid he had his first taste of the absolute fear of dying when an arrow had piearced his arm, when his tribe was dragging him back to Allahad lands he had a vision of a man in golden armor stoping all the tribes from fighting which lead to an era of peace unknown to the tribes at this time. So he began to train and become the greatest warrior Allahad will ever know.
A few years later, when Iban had turned eighteen he met the woman that would become his wife, Tali Tor-ka Boshan. He was surprised that a girl as rude as Tali was going to be married to him through arranged marrage, when mulling over this with Tali, he was attacked by a large lion earning him another life threating wound, across his back. But, because of Tali taking Iban's spear when he was attacked, she killed the lion by stabing it in the neck and pinning it to the ground. Iban, when waking from three days of being in a catatonic state and almost dying again, fell in complete love with Tali Tor-ka Boshan when he heard that she slayed the lion and not Allahad tribesman. They eventually had three beutiful girls.
Iban started his plan of uniting the tribes when he turned twenty, he led multiple raids against the strongest of the tribes, challenging many chieftans and warlords to single combat and defeated them and absored their tribes into his own. Eventually he came across one of the few major cities on the Muu continant, Vissa. Vissa was different than any tribal war he had led before, Vissa would'nt send champions out for single combact because they thought their army would defeat them easily. Iban grew impatient when they still would not do anything about his army, so, in a fit of rage and he told all the tribes under his command (numbering up into the tens of thousands, dwarfing the Vissian army) to smoke the city from hiding. They began to burn everything they could get their hands on, fields, food, cattle, even people that still attempted to get past the army of Iban. Eventually the gates opened, Iban personally led in the first charge. The battle after then was nothing but a massacre, the Vissan army still thought it was superior to any "barbarian" warrior.
After all the battles, all the duels, even Vissa falling to him. He died, of a simple sickeness, he was thirty years old, had three beutiful daughters, and the most beutiful woman. He created the founding that would eventually become,"The Holy Empire of The Last Tribe"

Part 3- Weapons
Close Range weapon: http://www.antiques-arms.com/catalog/images/tan48.jpg
A knife that all tribal men carry. Used for everday things as eating of carving, or for battle. Iban received his from his father when he turned twelve years old. worn in front of the stomach, 8" blade, 4" handle, 2 lbs.
http://www.kingofswords.com/images/PaulChenHawkScimitar.jpg
Ibans sword was one of the first swords on the Muu continant to be made from steel. The scimitar that Iban used had a bit of an odditiy in that its tip had extra weight to add to its already impressive cutting power. It is said that when he used it from horse back that he left mountains of heads in his wake. 34" long, 8" grip, 12 lbs total.
Mid range: http://www.nativecollections.com/i/artifact/SPEAR.jpg
The spear, every spear is unique for every person that holds it. The only true common thing about each one is that they were used on both foot and from mounted horse or camel back. 6' length with 7" head, 15lbs.
http://www.hydroponicsonline.com/store/img-hydroponics/old-african-hardwood-throwing-war-club-knobkerry_160547555295.jpg
A throwing club, used by men and children to hunt small animals, or, to bash someone over the head when things go wrong. 18", 8 lbs. head.
Long range: http://horseback-archery.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/recurve_schytian_bows2.jpg
A common composite bow used from horse back, Iban's recurve bow had a stong draw weight of 70 lbs. from full draw length. 36" long.
Special weapon: http://www.artilim.com/painting/s/schreyer-adolf/arab-chieftain-and-his-entourage.jpg
The horse, common in most Muu nomad tibes. Iban's horse was a beutiful black stallion that was crazy and mad to all things besides Iban himself. Iban led many raids and hit-and-run attacks in his life time. 15.1 hands tall,

Accepted and welcome. However, while horses and skill on them may or may not play a part in the testing for some and may or may not play a role in the simulation, they can't be listed as weapons.

This will also be the last free/non-matched up immediately app selected.

On the other one it says a ten vs ten fight, plus others had it before on the show, just look a Alexander the Great vs Attila the Hun, yes they had three guys with them, but you get my point.

Edit: Also for that Knight vs Samurai thing, have them on horses if you could, both groups were known to be on horseback a lot more realistic, and it would be awesome. Actually a Knight vs Samurai already is on Fan Fiction.net.

Warrior Bio: According to Herodotus, Leonidas' mother was his father's niece and had been barren for so long that the ephors, the five annually elected administrators of the Spartan constitution, tried to prevail upon King Anaxandridas to set aside his wife and take another. Anaxandridas refused, claiming his wife was blameless, whereupon the ephors agreed to allow him to take a second wife without setting aside his first. This second wife, a descendent of Chilon the Wise, promptly bore a son, Cleomenes. However, one year after Cleomenes' birth, Anaxandridas' first wife also gave birth to a son, Dorieus. Leonidas was the third son of Anaxandridas' first wife, and either the elder brother or twin of Cleombrotus.[3] Because Leonidas was not heir to the throne, he was not exempt from attending the agoge, the public school that the sons of all Spartans had to complete in order to qualify for citizenship.[4] Leonidas was thus one of the few Spartan kings to have ever undergone the notoriously harsh training of Spartan youth.

Cleomenes I succeeded to his father's throne somewhere between 520 and 516 BC.[5] Dorieus was so outraged that the Spartans had preferred his half-brother over himself that he found it impossible to remain in Sparta. He made one unsuccessful attempt to set up a colony in Africa and, when this failed, sought his fortune in Sicily, where after initial successes he was killed.[6] Leonidas' relationship with his bitterly antagonistic elder brothers is unknown, but he married Cleomenes' daughter, Gorgo sometime before coming to the throne in 490 BC.[7]

Leonidas was clearly heir to the Agiad throne and a full citizen at the time of the Battle of Sepeia against Argos (c. 494 BC). Likewise, he was a full citizen when the Persians sought submission from Sparta and met with vehement rejection in or around 492/491 BC. His brother had already gone mad and fled into exile when Athens sought assistance against the Persian invasion that ended at Marathon (490 BC).

Plutarch has recorded the following: "When someone said to him: 'Except for being king you are not at all superior to us,' Leonidas son of Anaxandridas and brother of Cleomenes replied: 'But were I not better than you, I should not be king.'"[8] As the product of the agoge, Leonidas is unlikely to have been referring to his royal blood alone but rather suggesting that he had, like his brother Dorieus, proven superior capability in the competitive environment of Spartan training and society, and that he believed this made him qualified to rule.

Leonidas was elected to lead the combined Greek forces determined to resist the Persian invasion in 481. This was not simply a tribute to Sparta's military prowess: The probability that the coalition wanted Leonidas personally for his capability as a military leader is underlined by the fact that just two years after his death, the coalition preferred Athenian leadership to the leadership of either Leotychidas or Leonidas' successor (as regent for his still under-aged son) Pausanias. The rejection of Leotychidas and Pausanias was not a reflection on Spartan arms. Sparta's military reputation had never stood in higher regard. Nor was Sparta less powerful in 478 than it had been in 481.

This election of Leonidas to lead the defense of Greece against Xerxes' invasion led to Leonidas' death in the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC.

Upon receiving a request from the confederated Greek forces to aid in defending Greece against the Persian invasion, Sparta consulted the Oracle at Delphi. The Oracle is said to have made the following prophecy in hexameter verse:

For you, inhabitants of wide-wayed Sparta,
Either your great and glorious city must be wasted by Persian men,
Or if not that, then the bound of Lacedaemon must mourn a dead king, from Heracles' line.
The might of bulls or lions will not restrain him with opposing strength; for he has the might of Zeus.
I declare that he will not be restrained until he utterly tears apart one of these.[9]

In August 480 BC, Leonidas set out to meet Xerxes' army at Thermopylae with a small force of 300, where he was joined by forces from other Greek city-states, who put themselves under his command to form an army between 4,000 and 7,000 strong. There are various theories on why Leonidas was accompanied by such a small force of hoplites. According to Herodotus "The Spartans sent the men with Leonidas on ahead so that the rest of the allies would see them and march, instead of medizing like the others if they learned that the Spartans were delaying. At present the Carneia was in their way, but once they had completed the festival, they intended to leave a garrison at Sparta and march out in full force with all speed. The rest of the allies planned to do likewise, for the Olympiad coincided with these events. They accordingly sent their advance guard, not expecting the war at Thermopylae to be decided so quickly."[10] Many modern commentators are unsatisfied with this explanation and point to the fact that the Olympic Games were in progress or impute internal dissent and intrigue.

Whatever the reason Sparta's own contribution was just 300 Spartiates (accompanied by their attendants and probably perioikoi auxiliaries), the total force assembled for the defense of the pass of Thermopylae came to something between four and seven thousand Greeks. They faced a Persian army who had invaded from the north of Greece under Xerxes I. Herodotus stated that this army consisted of over two million men; modern scholars consider this to be an exaggeration and give estimates ranging from 50,000 to 200,000.[11]

Xerxes waited four days to attack, hoping the Greeks would disperse. Finally, on the fifth day the Persians attacked. Leonidas and his men repulsed the Persians' frontal attacks for the fifth and sixth days, killing roughly 20,000 of the enemy troops and losing about 2,500 of their own. The Persian elite unit known to the Greeks as "the Immortals" was held back, and two of Xerxes' brothers (Abrocomes and Hyperanthes) died in battle.[12] On the seventh day (August 11), a Malian Greek traitor named Ephialtes led the Persian general Hydarnes by a mountain track to the rear of the Greeks.[13] At that point Leonidas sent away all Greek troops and remained in the pass with his 300 Spartans, 900 Helots, and 700 Thespians who refused to leave. Another 400 Thebans were kept with Leonidas as hostages. The Thespians stayed entirely of their own will, declaring that they would not abandon Leonidas and his followers. Their leader was Demophilus, son of Diadromes, and as Herodotus writes: "Hence they lived with the Spartans and died with them."

One theory provided by Herodotus is that Leonidas sent away the remainder of his men because he cared about their safety. The King would have thought it wise to preserve those Greek troops for future battles against the Persians, but he knew that the Spartans could never abandon their post on the battlefield. The soldiers who stayed behind were to protect their escape against the Persian cavalry. Herodotus himself believed that Leonidas gave the order because he perceived the allies to be out of heart and unwilling to encounter the danger to which his own mind was made up. He therefore chose to dismiss all troops except the Thespians and Helots and save the glory for the Spartans.[14]

Of the small Greek force, attacked from both sides, all were killed except for the Thebans, who surrendered. Leonidas was killed, but the Spartans retrieved his body and protected it. Herodotus says that Xerxes' orders were to have Leonidas' head cut off and put on a stake and his body crucified. This was considered sacrilegious.

Vlad the Impaler vs Sun Tzu was a 1v1 fight, and when I say individual, it will be just that- 1v1 with no exceptions.

Secondly, this is based on the show Deadliest Warrior, not modified versions of it. While horseback riding and skills will play a part in the simulation and some tests may take them into account, no, it will not be lol mounted warfare for teh realism lol. This is based on the show. Nothing else.

Edit: Also for that Knight vs Samurai thing, have them on horses if you could, both groups were known to be on horseback a lot more realistic, and it would be awesome. Actually a Knight vs Samurai already is on Fan Fiction.net.

And that is nothing compared to the later chapters.

Edit 2: Did you see the video's I posted?


Vlad the Impaler vs Sun Tzu was a 1v1 fight, and when I say individual, it will be just that- 1v1 with no exceptions.

Secondly, this is based on the show Deadliest Warrior, not modified versions of it. While horseback riding and skills will play a part in the simulation and some tests may take them into account, no, it will not be lol mounted warfare for teh realism lol. This is based on the show. Nothing else.


Did you see Comanche vs Mongol? also why did you deny the Spartan guy? I checked the OP and there is one guy in the dame section that doesn't have a opponent.

Former OMFS, Zephyrus was a member of the Shadowmen until he was stabbed through the jaw and taken out of commission. With 10 years of OMFS experience, he now trains up and coming Shadowmen. Not only does he understand every capability and maneuver taught to Shadowmen but he also has a firm understanding of all of their weaknesses.

Iuliana has spent her life learning Oiseaui weaponry; she is currently considered the leading authority. In fact, she's spent the last five years helping develop and field test long-distance firearms for the Oiseauian Armed Forces. As a non-military expert, she offers an unbiased perspective on all OMFS weapons which could be tested.

Warrior Bio:
The Oiseauian Marine Force Shadowmen (OMFS) are the elite special forces of the Oiseauian Marine Force. Its core capabilities are direct action, special reconnaissance and unconventional warfare. OMFS has also been directed to conduct counter-terrorism, information operations, and foreign internal defense. Beginning in 1965 as a test in creating ruthless soldiers, the program has not only held strong but has grown to be the most advanced Special Forces in Oiseaui.

Selection of the right personnel begins with a rigorous screening process designed to identify the right Marines for the right billet within OMFS. Screening takes place in 3 stages: record screening, physical screening, and a psychological evaluation. Stage 1, record screening, screens previous military achievements, issues, and histories. Only men who have shown excellence on every mission, regardless of how many, are chosen for Stage 2. Stage 2, physical screening, ensures that all soldiers meet the exact physical requirements. They must be a minimum of 6'0", have no more than 10% body fat, and be capable of long distance-sprinting while carrying an upwards of 200lbs of equipment. Stage 3 consists of psychological evaluations which aim to figure out a soldiers alignment. The preferred alignment is Lawful Evil, though Lawful Neutral is also accepted. By the end of Stage 3 only the most loyal, ruthless, physically domineering, and historically engaged soldiers remain. Those who join the OMFS are widely regarded as the most fearsome men in Oiseaui. OMFS operational billets are open only to males.

He closed it because he's trying to encourage apps in other areas. And as the OP, Marsh can open and close whatever he damn well pleases, whenever he damn well pleases, for whatever reason he damn well pleases. I'd wager it's incessant questions like this that aggravate him. Now perhaps you could kindly stop whining and move along (or at least just stop whining). Thank you.

Where to start, first lets take this to the telegram, and second, I was not Whining I was asking a question so you need to stop accusing people of doing things, putting damn into everything does not mean you should and that only makes you look less serious, calm down and let him answer the question.

Part 1-basic

Warrior name: Lamonian Berserker
Height: Averages at 182.88 cm
Weight: ~113.39 kg

Gear:

- Dauntless Body Armour W/ BALCOTH
- WARRIOR III (Inf) TacSystem
- Mamba Tactical boots
- Blacktalon Combat Gloves
- M50 Joint Service General Purpose Mask
- Dark Black Uniform

Years Active: Since 1910
Loyalties: Free Republic of Lamoni
Nation of origin: Free Republic of Lamoni

Expert one: http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~chazelle/pics/soldier.jpg

Captain Marvin Tokumba has been training Lamonian Berserkers for the past five years, and before that, he had been a Berseker for the previous ten years. He was taken out of the active units due to a sniper round hitting his left leg in a sniper duel. This old injury gives him a limp, but he is still more than capable of teaching future Berserkers the art of sniping. With his S37A2 long range rifle, Captain Tokumba was able to shoot a 5 round grouping, with the shots hitting in an area the diameter of a fifty cent piece. This was done from 1,500 meters away.

Expert two: http://connectionsisrael.com/wp-content/themes/connections%20israel/smoothgallery/images/shine/soldier1.jpg

Major James Cantrell is a shorter redheaded man, who has done multiple recons behind enemy lines, and has taken down many terrorist bases. Cantrell is an expert with plastic explosives, having even brought down a munitions plant in <nation name redacted for security reasons>, and slipping away unseen through a little used jungle trail. Cantrell also uses the Kukri, to exemplary effect.

Part 2- Warrior

Appearance of warrior: Image

Warrior Bio:

Created in 1910, all Berserkers (after the original group) have come from Lamonian government run orphanages. These orphans are given the strictest testing possible (at age seven) to see if they have the right qualities to join the Berserkers (strength, intelligence, agility, flexibility in both body and thought). As training for the regular Lamonian Military is already worse than most battlefields, the training for Berserkers has been described as "hell on earth." As a Spec Ops branch of the Lamonian Army, the Berserkers get the missions that the other Lamonian Spec Ops troops think are suicidal. Their legendary devotion to the Lamonian nation, as well as their physical and mental skills make them the deadliest Spec Ops troops in the Lamonian arsenal.

Somewhat unfairly, the Berserkers do not get much public attention, with some people blatantly ripping off Tom Clancy novels to call the Berserkers the "Men of Black." As with the Norse of old, the Berserker unit patch (worn only on dress uniforms) is of a bear standing on two legs, in a more human fighting position, with full claws. As one former Berserker member put it, "these men would scare the piss out of the Spetznaz, let alone 'normal' men."
