The gladiator across from you polishes his axe. The edge shimmers with magical power. A hiss of steam is released from the mechanical automaton with big, spiked fists. The space marine lights a cigar, checking his ammo for the fifth time. And yet you smile. They are your competitors, but you have faith that the teachings of your master will prove their worth. The iron lotus cannot be defeated! The gate rises. The roar of the crowd washes over you as you get into your fighting stance.
