Super Gladiators!!!!

I've been having so much fun with Goalsystem games lately, that I decided why not take my beloved Supersystem and use it for gladiator fights. I've been using "Death or Freedom" for years, but thought why not convert my favorite super hero rules just for fun.
Thus, Super Strength became Strength of Hercules, Entangle became a retiarus net, Force Field became Large Shield. I must say, it worked rather well. All the gladiators were built using the same point values, and the games played pretty balanced. There was no one fighter who seemed too bad ass to beat.
The first six man brawl took a little time, but the next went quicker. This could be a quick convention game.

To make things easier, I rolled in all the modifiers and bonuses so all the player had to do was look at the record sheet and see the number of dice and rerolls.

Sounds like a great little game, I like the arena, where does that come from?

Steve Barber Miniatures:
also recommend the rules, too.
You get spectators for the arena, but I can't seem to get interested in painting that many civilians.
