Round 1: The Rebellion
The match starts with the members of the 14
Legion wintering near the Eburones.
Fifteen days after they arrived, the Romans are sucker punched while foraging for food, and several are killed.
Ambiorix presses his advantage and follows the survivors to the Roman camp.
The Romans dodge and counter-attack, defeating Ambiorix.
Ambiorix, staggered, claims he was forced to attack them, and that many Germans are on their way (a lie), but offers safe passage to a nearby fort.
Several Roman soldiers
An equal number of Eburones warriors
Round 2: The Ambush
This round starts with the Romans worrying about the fake approach of German forces and preparing to leave.
On their march to the fort, they are ambushed with a left and right hook by Ambiorix.
Attacking on both sides, Ambiorix orders his men to skirmish, throwing and firing projectiles while dodging any retaliation.
L. Aurunculeius Cotta is hit in the face with a rock.
Seeing his partner go down, Q. Titurius Sabinus offers surrender to Ambiorix.
Ambiorix accepts his surrender, and gives a looong victory speech about how he will give them safety.
Barbarians surround the Romans while they’re listening to Ambiorix and the referee is distracted.
The trap is sprung, the Romans are slaughtered, both lieutenants are killed.
It appears that Ambiorix has won the fight.
Q. Titurius Sabinus - L. Aurunculeius Cotta’s face (and his life) - The entire 14
Round 3: The Massacre
A new challenger approaches!
But wait! Julius Caesar has entered the battle (with 10 legions).
He uppercuts Ambiorix’s allies, making them promise not to come to Ambiorix’s aid.
Then, he moves on the Eburones, specifically searching for Ambiorix.
Finding some members of the tribe alone, they interrogate them and find Ambiorix’s location.
They ambush him, but he dodges their attack and escapes into the woods.
The Eburones flee, but many are caught and exterminated by the 50,000 Romans.
Cativolcus commits suicide and curses Ambiorix in his dying breath.
Ambiorix and his men cross the Rhine and escape Caesar’s clutches.
Although Caesar killed his tribe, his vengeance against Ambiorix is not sated.
The match is a draw.
Cativolcus - The Eburones - Ambiorix’s pride
The Eburones are destroyed.
One Roman Legion lies dead.
Two Roman Lieutenants are killed (one with a mashed-up face).
Julius Caesar is left unfulfilled knowing Ambiorix escaped
Ambiorix lives, never to be heard from again.
