"Trial of Champions" as written by and Cameron Todd/hooper Pipes....
Enslaved by warlords from far-away lands
Thrust into a life of slavery
Forced to fight your brothers for rulers so cruel
A killer instinct your only escape
Ferocious battle a fight to survive

Each weapon- an extension of your strength
All victories add greatness to your name

Fight to the death, there will be no surrender
Your cunning must be afforded
There will be no remorse for those who gamble with your fate
Freedom, through killing strangers will it come
You fight to live, freedom gained with every shiv

You need to prove...prove your worth
To ascend to the trial of champions

Every night, a battle to the death
Your fate lies in the hands of fools
A meager wager more precious than your life


When the thumb comes down, you know just what to do...
Kill! Kill! Kill!

It's your time...do what must be done.
Everyday you fight, everyday you win

Taking the life of the Emperor
The ultimate reward for surviving the Trial
You will not die in chains, a champion you are!

    General Commentthis is so much based off the gladiators in ancient Rome with the slaves doing battle and the thumb comes down. the story is about a man taken as a slave and fights in the Colosseum to win his freedom like in the gladiator movie.
