I wouldn't be a gladiator because its best to watch it than getting killed by a tighter ,loin ,or other men. Because I think this is that why would people fight to be a hero if you just fight animals and not in a real battle. Its not fair to fight in the field without a weapon or get a thumb down and die.
Gavin I think that you mean tiger or fighter. But wouldn't it be loyal and brave to try. I would rather die than to cause a death of another.
Peter I do agree with what you say about rather dyeing than killing another. However, when you are in Colosseum and you are on the verge of death, you might want to kill or at least injure another gladiator.
I disagree with gavin because you are all the talk of the roman time. Also, most gladiators get weapons. The romans just did not let the Christians have weapons because, they did not like their religion. Also if your a gladiator you have to have a weapon or the people will not come and watch people be slaughtered.
I agree with Gavin because I think people fighting agents other people is fun to watch. But wouldn't you want to get all of the fame and fortune? Yes, having the risk of dying, but why not fight?
i agree but u would be famous
I agree with you Gavin. I would rather be amused by the man slaughter than be slaughtered. But if I was being persecuted for being Christian I would full heartily be out there.
Peter, I agree with the fact that if I was Christian, it must mean that I believe in that. If I were to believe in something I would not hide the fact that I do. I also would rather watch someone get slaughtered... even though I do not want to watch someone get slaughtered either.
I would want to be gladiator because, even though you have a good chance of dying you could be a celbertie. The kind of gladiator is the guy with the net because, you could trap your appone en t and go for the kill. But you could also get slaughtered in the arena by other gladiators or bears, lions, or tigers. I think I would still be a glatiator because, you are the Justin Beiber ofmRoman times!!!!!!!
I disagree that people would treat you like Justen and that it would be easy to trap your enemies with nets. Trapping people with nets would be hard because the net can sometimes mess up from wind or from the person outsmarting you by turning the other way. So the net would be hard and being a gladiator can make enemies if you are too powerful people will want to test it and you could die outside the arena from people who are testing you so you have danger from being a glad. But in all honesty being a gladiator would be fun and then scary for killing innocent Christians even if they were excused i would still feel bad.
I have to disagree with you because even if you lost a game and survived, the emperor might decide to kill you anyways, and even if you won against some gladiators, you eventually would probably be killed, so would you rather be a celebrity like Justin Beiber for a short time but be killed or not be a celeb. and be safe?
I would find it to be a fun job becoming a gladiator and I would be a Murmillo. I would be that specific person because I could use the big shield to my advantage and knock someone down with it and block attacks and with the net man I can use the shield to dodge the net. And with power comes fame and it would be easy to live with the fame like getting treated as if I was the president FAMOUS! Now in time i will die but as a gladiator I will be remembered for the entertainment I give to the people.
I disagree with Wally because being a gladiator you don't get a lot of money and maybe you'll have to fight other that you might know them and you might not want to kill them.
I disagree with Wally because you don't get a lot of money and is fame really worth taking a chance on your life for?
I would be a gladiator because if I win a lot, then I would be famous! The type of gladiator I would be is the guy with the rectangular shield because I could knock the opponent down and then stab my sword throw his heart. If I was a gladiator right now, then I would just kill myself because I would die right away in the Colosseum agents guys with prison arms.
I would have to disagree. Getting fame form becoming a Gladiator is not the only solution. You can earn fame and even wealth from a many of other jobs.
,But Niko you have to remember the only people we have learned about that are famous are people that have power. Mr. K has never told us that anybody that wasnt a gladiator or related to a recent or old ruler has fame (pretty much a nobody). I am sure there were some people that were big but when Rome was falling I dont think they were worried about the colloseum nor gladiators they were worried about Rome just like if the U.s were to fall nobody would care about the celebritys nor sports players they would be worried about the U.s in modern day
No I would not want to be one because I don't want to die fighting even if I won and I would become famous I don't want to take the chance of not winning and the Emperor saying to just kill me off.
I agree Cloie. I am saying this because even if I won I would still be traumatized from the fight. Also, I would not kill someone, so, the person that is fighting me will kill me and I will die as it probably can tell.
I would not want to become a gladiator because I can earn profit and fame in much greater things. As a gladiator I have a 90% chance to die each time, so you're basically gambling for your life, and in return you win fame. But you can earn it other ways, like becoming a famous philosopher, a successful business owner, or even an Emperor.
I agree with how you can earn the fame in different ways. For example, if you think about it do we know which gladiators won in the Colosseum. The answer is no. Today we don't know the gladiators who won but we know the people who really changed history or even if they didn't in a massive way, we still remember them today. Like, today we know Cincinnatus. I mean, yes, the gladiators would have gotten fame for their entire life, but then I am pretty sure that after they died no one even bothered to remember them.
I would not be a gladiator. I say this because my life is more important than fame. I would never risk my life for fame or any privilige.
I wouldn't want to be a gladiator. This is because I would be fighting for my death. Also, most likely I am going to die. I wouldn't know what I would have to fight. I could be drowned, eaten, burned, etc. Even if I had a chance of winning. I mean even if I defeat everyone, the final decision if the Caesar/ emperor, so I would be pretty much sacrificing myself. There would be a very low chance of winning.
I wouldn't be a gladiator. I say this because I wouldn't want to risk my life just for popularity. Also, I don't have the quality to fight, and I would die instantly.
I agree with Chloe. I wouldn't risk my life for popularity. I feel like if you became the popular gladiator it would only last for a short period of time. Which means you risked your like for the shortest time of being popular. Also I would die instantly too because I can't fight either.
I feel like if I had the option of being a slave or being a gladiator, I would choose being the gladiator. If you are a slave your life is pretty much over. You get treated like poop and get payed barely at all to none. However, if you are a gladiator, even if there is a chance of death, there is still a chance at fame, glory, wealth, and life. So I would in fact be a gladiator
I agree with you because I would rather be a gladiator than a slave because being a slave is probably is more terrifying than a gladiator,because being on a battle field fighting to death or be tortured.
I would not want to be a gladiator because first it would be terrifying because you try to stay calm and brave though all you probably think is i might die.
I don' t want to be a gladiator because I probably would die sooner or later and I get that you would be famous and all, but only for a short time because you would most likely die. Even if you lost and survived the emperor would still be able to have you killed. You also would be fighting with little armor and choice of weapon. That doesn't sound great to me. I would most definitely rather be watching.
I wouldn't want to be a gladiator because I'd probably die within the first minute. Also I hate animals a lot and I am a terrible fighter. Even though you could possibly live I wouldn't risk my life for popularity.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
