Battle vs. Knight (by KevlarNinja)Edit
In a forest, a knight is on his way to his Castle. Suddenly, an arrow flies past his face plate! He turns his head left, were the arrow came from, and sees a Immortal, yelling something in Persian. The knight charges on his horse towards the Immortal, and fires his crossbow, which hits the Immortal in the thigh. The Immortal runs back and picks up the rest of his weapons. He holds up his spear and hits the knight in the chest. This only manages to bend the tip of the spear and knock the knight on the ground. The knight grabs his Halberd from the side of his horse, and chops the spear in half. The knight tries to stab the Immortal, but he get's out of the way so the knight only manages to get the Halberd stuck in the trunk of a tree. Both warriors pull out there close range weapons and start to duel. The Immortal swings his Sagaris axe and the knights head, but it only gets it stuck. With his Falchion, the knight cuts the Immortals face. The Immortal knocks the sword out of the knights hand. The Immortal pulls out his dagger, and tries to stab the knight. The knight punches him in the face. The knight keeps doing this until the Immortals face is a bloody mess. The knight goes back on the horse and goes back on his way.
The Knight was deemed victorious due to his superior armor and weaponry, as well as the fact that he had training at a young age. The deciding factor was that the Persian Immortal's bronze simply couldn't stand up to the steel and iron of the Knight's armor.
Battle vs. Samurai, Zande Warrior, and Highlander (by Samurai234)Edit
In a field, a Samurai is meditating, unaware a Zande Warrior is watching him. Suddenly, the Samurai hears some noise. Wondering what it is, the Samurai grabs his Weapons and goes to investigate. He find the noises are coming from a Persian Immortal and a Highlander engaged in battle. The Highlander throws his Ball and at the Persian who rolls under it. The Persian grabs his Bow and Arrow and fires at the Highlander. The Samurai pulls out his Yumi and fires 2 arrows at the both the Persian and Highlander. He is about to fire a third, but another arrow hits him in the Helmet. They all turn to see the Zande Warrior holding his Botto and Pima. Realizing the weapon wouldn't do good against the warrior's armor, He pulls out his Kpinga and charges at the Immortal. As they close in, the Zande hurls his weapon at the Persian. He puts his shield to block the projectile, but it ends up rotating away from the shield and hitting the Persian in the chest, chipping his armor. The Persian Tries to get up, but the Zande comes in with his Makrigga and he thrusts into the Persian's shield, disarming him. The Persian unsheathes his Sword and slashes at the barbed spear, rendering it useless. The Zande pulls out his Shotel and the two begin dueling. However, they end up losing their swords after a fall. The Zande pulls out his Makraka while the Persian pulls out his Sagaris. As they swing, the Zande manages to knock the Axe out of the Persian's hands. The Zande prepares to lay the finishing blow, but the Persian manages to recover his spear and smacks the Zande in the head with the counter end. He then thrusts the spear through the Zande's heart, killing him. The Persian recovers his Sagaris and goes on to take on the Samurai and Highlander. Meanwhile, The Samurai, using his Naginata faces the Highlander who fires at him with his English Longbow, leaving a large hole in the armor. The Samurai charges at the Highlander, who quickly grabs his Lochaber Axe. He cuts the Naginata and cuts it in half. The Samurai manages to pulls out his Kanabo, and swings, damaging the Axe. Before he can finish him off though, the Persian runs up him and hits him in the back. The Samurai turn and hits the Persian in the side, crippling him. The Persian pulls out his guard's dagger, and tries to runs up to the highlander, but the Scotsman has unsheathed his Claymore and he cuts the Persian's head off. The Samurai comes back armed with his Katana and they enter a sword fight, During which they lock swords. The Highlander breaks the lock and quickly slashes the Samurai across the face, leaving a scar. He gets the Samurai in a headlock and tries to stab him in the neck, but the Samurai breaks the Lock and throws the Highlander to the floor. He then pulls out his Tanto and stabs the Highlander in the neck, ending his life. The Samurai, badly injured, leaves the area to relax.
The Samurai emerged victorious mainly due to his extreme skill and dediction to both long and close ranged combat, with his strong armor protecting him from most blows. The Highlander came in second because although his armor could stop many attacks, the precision of the Samurai was too much for him to keep up with. The Persian came in third place because his bronze armor was weaker than that of the Samurai and Highlander, and the Zande came last thanks to his lack of effective armor and lack of armor-piercing weaponry.
Battle vs. Han Warrior (by KevlarNinja)Edit
Out on a chinese field, a Han Dynasty charioteer and two Han warriors are eating a small meal, when they hear trumpeting. The walk over to see two Persian Immortals, with their own chariot and charioteer, who's blowing the war trumpet. The lead Immortal commands the other to jump on the chariot, which he does. The Han leader does the same. In their own languages, the leaders shout "Charge!" The second Han warrior aims his Repeating Crossbow, hitting the Persian charioteer in the eye.
With the charioteer now dead, the Persian chariot starts to swerve to the right. The Immortal picks up his bow, quiver, and spear and jumps off just in time. The chariot crashes and splinters into a thousand pieces. The Immortal fires just as his leader catches up. The Immortal fires an arrow up into the air. Meanwhile, the Han charioteer stops and looks up into the sky. The arrow flies down and goes right through the charioteer's neck.
The Han warrior jumps off, and charges the Immortal with his Qiang, well his leader watches over. The Han Warrrior tries to stab, but the Immortal dodges and knocks the Han over with his spear's counterweight, knocking the warrior to the ground. He turns the spear around and stabs the Han warrior in the chest.
The Han Warrior pulls out his Dao and the Immortal, his Akinake (sword). They charge at each other. They duel for a little while, but the Han chops through the Akinake with his Dao. He tosses his sword aside and pulls out some Deer Horn Knives, well the Immortal unsheathes his Guard's Dagger. The Immortal swings his blade, but misses. The Han kicks him in the chest, knocking the wind out of him. The Han warrior proceeds to stab the Immortal multiple times in the chest.
The Han holds a bloodly knife in the air and yells in victory.
The Han Warriors won because of their steel weapons and the superior rate of fire of the repeating crossbow over the Persian bow on an unsteady platform like a chariot.
Battle vs. Egyptian Warrior (by Wassboss)Edit
The Persian fleet marchs over the open plain, in straight lines of 5. The leader rides his chariot in the front, his body guards in a circle around him. “Sir, some of the archers can see the enemy sir” one of the bodyguard whispers, jumping onto the side of the slow moving chariot and pressing his mouth to the leader’s ear. His leader peers into the distance and spots the Egyptians split up into 4 quarters of 4 with the leader on his own chariot a little bit behind his men, his bodyguards also standing around him. Almost immediately as he spots them he hears the sound of a horn being blown and the Egyptians cheer and start running towards the Persian’s, who stop and ready themselves for the battle ahead.
“Archers fire your arrows” the Persian leader shouts and the ten men at the back bend back the string on their bows and let loose a volley of arrows, partially blocking out the sun which is already partially blocked out by the clouds. The Egyptian leader yells for his men to raise their shields and they do so mere seconds afterwards but they hesitate for too long and 7 men are killed when the arrows come down. (20-13)
The remaining Egyptian archers (8 in total) send their own volley of arrows at the Persian’s but the immortals are prepared and raise their own shields in defiance. Despite this 4 Persian’s fall to the ground 1 clutching his eye and the other 3 their necks. (16-13)
The immortals fire another volley of arrows but the Egyptians are prepared this time and raise their shields, the arrows bouncing harmlessly of them. Now too close for another volley of arrows the Persian Leader shouts out a command of “Swords and Spears men, Sword and Spears”. Almost exactly as these words are issued the Persian’s drop their bows and draw their swords and spears. Two spears fly forward from the ranks of the immortals, one bouncing harmlessly off an Egyptian, the other striking one in-between his armour and pierces his heart. (16-12)
The front line of Egyptians draws their own spears and point them into the ranks of the Persian’s. The crash into the Persian formation, skewering 5 Persian’s with their spears. (11-12)
The Egyptians discard their now snapped, bent or headless spears and draw their other weapons, running straight into the fray. The Persian leader draws his sword and lops of the head of a nearby Egyptian, his head rolling away. (11-11)
He swirls the chariot around and spots an Egyptian archer who fires an arrow right at him. It strikes the Persian in the chest, knocking him off the chariot and making his horse run whining off into the distance. “Guards to me” he shouts over the noise of battle and his bodyguards immediately rush to his side, managed to kill 3 of the Egyptians as they rush to their leader. (11-8)
“Push forward” he shouts and his bodyguards obey, moving quickly through the Egyptian ranks. The two bodyguards in front of drop down, arrows protruding out of their throats. (9-8)
The leader ducks down as another arrow flies past his head and grabs a sagaris from the dead body of one of his immortals. He straightens himself back up and slams the axe into the back of an Egyptian’s head, which was having a sword duel with an immortal. (9-7)
The Persian lifts his hand up in gratitude but he doesn’t have any time to thank his leader, as his head is crushed from behind with a mace. (8-7)
The Egyptian warrior drops his heavy and cumbersome mace and draws his Khopesh, running up to the Persian leader. One of his bodyguards puts steps forward, putting himself between the Egyptian and his master. The Egyptian swings his sword downwards and slices into the guard’s neck, making the blood shoot out. The guard grabs his throat in a desperate attempt to stop the bleeding and the other guard steps forward, thrusting his spear into the Africans chest, piercing both the armour and heart of the Egyptian, causing him to fall backwards his hands grasped over his heart. (7-6)
Meanwhile the Egyptian leader watches the battle from a safe distance, a few feet away from the fighting. Suddenly an arrow strikes his horse in-between its front legs, sticking into its chest. The horse squeals and bolts forwards catching the leader off guard. Realising he will be killed if he stays on the chariot he leaps off, the horse collapsing not soon afterwards. “Men protect me” he shouts but only 2 men rush to his side the other 3 are locked in combat with their Persian adversaries. The leader takes his bow from where it was slung over his back and fires an arrow at one of the Persian’s, hitting him in the left eye. (6-6)
As he does so another Egyptian crushes the leg of a Persian immortal with a swing from his mace. The immortal screams in agony and the Egyptian finishes him off with a blow to the head. The he and another Egyptian run to their leader, obeying his original request. Another one tries to bolt but is struck in the back by 3 arrows, dropping faster than a boulder in a lake. (5-5)
The Persian archer smiles at his accuracy and returns to his master, along with the other 2 remaining immortals. They charge at the exact same number of Egyptians, their swords and spears raised above them. The Persian archer and the Egyptian archer (Whom the leader gave his bow to) fire their arrows at the same time, each one downing the other with an arrow to the neck. (4-4)
As they grow nearer the last remaining Persian body guard throws his spear, the long thin spear sailing through the air at a great speed. It hits the nearest Egyptian in the neck, knocking him off his feet from the sheer impact of the projectile. (4-3)
Another Egyptian runs forward with a spear and slams it the Persian guard, impaling him through his chest. He then draws his Khopesh and decapitates another Persian who is too slow to respond to his teammate’s death. (2-3)
The Persian leader rakes his sword across the spear Egyptians neck, leaving a long gash in his neck. He then kicks him backwards, knocking him into the other Egyptian soldier, knocking them both to the ground. (2-2)
The Egyptian struggles to push the corpse of his comrade off of his body and the Persian leader thrusts his sword through his right eye, finishing off the downed African. (2-1)
The other Persian tries to kill the Egyptian leader but he ducks underneath and stabs him in-between his armour with his dagger. (1-1)
The Persian leader charges at the Egyptian and swings his sword, aiming for his opponent’s neck. The Egyptian ducks under this attack and grabs the Persians sword hand, twisting it and forcing the Persian to drop his sword. He then tries to stab him in the abdomen but the immortal sees the glimmer of steel and pushes the Egyptian back, drawing his own dagger as he does so. They stand facing each other for a moment before lunging for each other, the Persian being slightly faster off the beat. He ducks under the Egyptians stab and rams the blade into his armpit, the curved edge hooking around a nerve. The Egyptian yells in pain and the immortal rips his dagger out, tearing the nerve out as well. He then stabs the Egyptian through the eye and pulls him into him. Digging the dagger even further until the Egyptian stops moving. He then drags the knife out of the egyptians eye, pushing him as he does so. (1-0)
The Persian leader looks over the battle field but none of his men have survived the conflict. He raises his dagger into the air and lets out a cry of “PEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRSIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA”.He then heads over to his chariot which has stopped not too far from where he is standing, his horse grazing on the grass. He jumps into the back and pulls on the reins, regaining control of the chariot and heading back to tell his superiors of his success.
This was a very close match up which could have gone either way. While the Egyptian warriors had the advantage in close range combat the Persian’s better armour diminished this edge slightly and their superior archery skills helped them take the Egyptians out from a distance and their superior training also helping to balance out the close range combat disadvantage.
Battle vs. Attila the Hun (by Jar teh marksman)Edit
Attila is sitting on a horse, with a Hunnic warrior close by. 2 Persian Immortals come into sight, riding on a chariot. One Persian Immortal signals for the chariot to be stopped. He draws an arrow, and fires. It misses both of the warriors. Attila and the Hunnic warrior scream as they run down the hill, with the Immortals doing the same on their chariot. An Immortal draws his Sagaris, and slashes the charging Hunnic warrior in the throat.
The chariot comes to a stop. The remaining Immortal hops off, grabbing a shield. He then brings out his Bow and Arrow. It slices Attila's arm, causing him to lose balance and fall off the horse. The Immortal rushes over to the fallen Hun, shield and spear at hand. Attila quickly realises what is going on, and scrambles to his feet. He pulls out the Sword of Mars. The Persian thrusts with the spear, however it fails, as Attila quickly side-steps. Attila rushes in, and with a fierce swing of the Sword of Mars to the shield, he knocks the Persian back. The persian quickly regains, and tackles Attila. Attila pushes the Immortal off, and pulls out his Scythian Axe. The Immortal brings out his Jambiya. The two continue to slash at each other, until the Persian gets behind the axe and slashes one of Attila's legs. Just as the Persian is about to deliver the final stab, Attila switches around the axe, and stabs the Immortal through the heart.
Attila cries out over his victory, and limps away.
Attila won due to him being able to fire an arrow off horseback, was more powerful than the Immortal, and deadly accurate with the Composite Bow.
No battle written
WINNER: PERSIAN IMMORTAL
While the ninja had superior stealth tactics, this was little help in an open environment when the Persian was easily able to dominate in head-on combat and use his superior strength and combat training to his advantage.
Battle vs. Roman Centurion (by Urbancommando77)Edit
In a roman camp, three Centurions were feasting. One of them heard something strange. He looked outside of a tent to see a chariot. The Immortal on the chariot fired his bow, but missed. The centurion warned the others. They all grabbed their weapons. One of them grabbed two pilums. He ran outside and threw his pilum at the chariot driver, but missed, again. The Centurion shoved the pilum into the chariots wheel, tempararely stopping it. The centurion aimed the scorpion at the Chariot. The Immortal pulled the Pilum out of the wheel and started driving towards the Scorpion. The bow men jumped off the back and pulled his Spear out. The centurion fired the bolt into the chariot, flipping it over and killing the driver.
The Immortal saw the other Persian's chariot an jumped onto it. The Centurion pulled his Hasta out and charged towards him. The chariot scythe knocked him down. He squirmed around and saw the chariot coming back. He stabbed one of the horses, but it also killed him.
The Immortal jumped out of the chariot and pulled his Sagaris out. He saw another centurion out and charged towards him. The Centurion pulled his Dolabra out and struck the Immortal in the arm. He stabbed the Immortal in the back and cut his head off.

He cut him in the back and then cut him in the chest. He finished him with a swift stab to the neck.
The Centurion was better suited to squad-on-squad combat and had superior weapons and armor than the Persian Immortal, giving him an easy win.

The battle begins in a open field,the Rajput,Persian Immortal and their chariot drivers stare at each other until they signal to charge.The Persian Immortal fires an arrow at the Rajput chariot but it is too low and hits the ground but the second time around he hits the Rajput chariot driver in the temple with an arrow,killing him.The Rajput tries to gain control of the chariot but is struck by the Chariot Sycthe,causing the chariot to crash.The Persians circle around the wreckage when the Rajput emerges from the destruction and slings his Chakram disk at the chariot driver decapitating him.The Persian jumps out of the chariot and charges at the Rajput with his spear,but the Rajput blocks with his shield and pulls out his Aara(Fruit By The Foot Sword)and snags his leg causing him to fall,but the Persian gets up and hits the Rajput in the head with the spear's metal ball.The Rajput rolls back when the Persian thrusts his spear at him but it sticks into the ground as a result of the Rajput dodging,the Rajput throws his Aara sword aside and grabs the Khanda and rushes the Persian.The Immortal tries pulling the spear out of the ground but it is struck by the Khanda,splitting it intwo.The Persian grabs the broken spear head and slashes the Rajput's ankle,the Raput grabs his foot and kicks the Immortal in the face.The Persian gets up and runs to his wrecked chariot and grabs his shield and Sageras,he attacks the Rajput head on and strikes him in the head knocking his mask-helmet off,the Rajput uses the Khanda and cuts half of the Persian's sheild off.Realizing that it is now useless,the Immortal throws his shield to the ground and grips both hands on the Sageras and swings it at the Rajput.The Persian stabs into the Rajput shield and throws it aside,the Rajput swings his Khanda sword at the Immortal but he knocks it out of his and slashes at his back.The Rajput dodges the next swipe and pulls out two Katars and walks around the Pesian Immortal,he swings with the Sageras but the Rajput jumps back he swings again but the Rajput ducks and slashes his thighs,then the Persian switches to the axe side and slashes the Rajput's side,he then raises his Sageras going for a finishing blow when he is stabbed in the chest with the Katar,the Immortal coughs up some blood on the Raputs face making the Rajput squint his eyes then he is stabbed again in the neck with the second Katar.The Persian drops his weapon and falls to the ground,the Rajput raises his Katar and yells in victory.
The Rajput one strictly due to his strange weapons and battle style,the Persian Immortal was more used to fighting in a group of 10,000 men wheras the Rajput fought by themselves or in a group of 5 also due to the fact that the Rajput had their own style of marital arts that they blended in with their fighting.While the Persian Immortal was certainly a better chariot fighter it was the Rajput's strange array of weapons that did they're job that did the Persian in.
Battle vs. Saxon Huskarl (by Cfp3157)Edit
A lone Immortal stands on the deck of the trieme. After our failed attempt on Greece, maybe this land will give us great resources. He gestures to the other four Immortals to land. One blows a horn, and the other massive Persian warships go to a halt. The five men land on the beach, breathing in the salty air. However, they have been spotted from a Saxon fort, and the garrison leader has sent five Huscarls to arrest the strange men. The leader kneels down on a rock, clutching his Dane Axe in his hand. He sends two of his men forward while the other three remain behind rocks in case of retaliation. The Persians see the approaching men and draw their bows. Before he could react, an Immortal shot one Huscarl in his neck, killing him. The other Huscarl raises his shield as the other four arrows thud into it. The Huscarl pulls out a throwing axe and manages to hit an Immortal in the chest, knocking him backwards. As he gets up, another Huscarl chucks another axe into him. The weapon land sin his head, and he falls back with a moan. The other three Huscarls catch up to the other one and charge, yelling fierce battle cries as they charge towards the Persians. One Immortal hides behind his wicker shield, but the Huscarl's longsword easily slices through it, and he follows up with a quick thrust into the Immortal's chest. Suddenly, a spear point prods through his chest, killing him instantly. The Immortal yanks the spear out and swings the ball point into an approaching Huscarl's head, dazing him. He tries to perform another thrust, but the Huscarl barely manages to parry it with the handle of his Dane Ax. He then performs a mighty chop, with the bit slamming into the head of the Immortal. He turns and swings the axe around, but the Immortal quickly ducks and stabs his Acinaces into his gut. The lead Immortal blocks a slash from a Long Seax, but his wicker shield simply can't take the punishment. The shield collapses, and the blade continues to hit the bronze scales of the Immortal. However, the scalse hold and the Immortal plants the pick of his Sagaris into the skull of the stunned Huscarl The lead Huscarl sees his comrade fall. He disarms the Immortal he is fighting of his shield and hacks his longsword into his head, decapitating the Persian. The other Immortal runs to the Huscarl, slamming his Sagaris into his side. The chainmail holds, but it still sends him to the ground. The Huscarl grabs a nearby rock and throws it at the Immortal, stunning him. Searching for a weapon, he grabs another larger stone and bashes the head of the Immortal, slamming the rock into his head. He runs over and grabs a Spear. He then thrusts it into the Persian's chest, impaling him on the spear. Panting, the Huscarl lets out a yell of victory before beginning the slow process of collecting weapons and walking back to the fort.
WINNER: Saxon Huscarl
The Huscarl curbstomped his opponent because of all his weapons being made of a superior metal, and his much larger size allowed him to attack his opponent with more force.
Battle vs. Hashashin (by Goddess of Despair)Edit
The Immortals are on high alert. They have been informed that their king himself has come to see his new soldiers. Seeing their king approach on the horizon, the Immortals prepare to look their best.
The Immortals saw the king getting ambushed and quickly grabbed nearby weapons and rushed towards the woods, hoping they could defeat the assassins. A Hashashins sees the Immortals coming and fires an arrow at one, which is blocked by a shield. Suddenly an arrow hits his stomach, causing him to fall off his tree branch. Slamming into the ground, the arrow dug deeper into the Hashashin.
The Persians advance under the cover of their archers. The archers, confident in their comrade’s abilities, have little worry other than firing their bows. Suddenly a khanjar thrusts into an archer’s chest. The Hashashin yanked out the blade as the second archer took an arrow out of his quiver. He lifted his bow as a throwing knife flew at him, slicing the string. The Hashashins sprinted at the Immortal, who side stepped out of the way of the khanjar and dug his arrow into the Hashashins’s throat. He walked to his comrade and helped him up. The injured Immortal opened his mouth to speak but his eyes suddenly widened, gasping he fell to the ground, victim of the poison.
An Immortal lifted and hurled his spear in the knives’ direction; the spear knocked a Hashashin out of the tree. He crashed to the ground, roaring in pain from the spear. His screams were silenced moments later by a sagaris.
The Immortal retrieved his spear, when an object caught his eye. He turned as a knife flew past him, grazing his cheek. The Hashashins turned and ran into the brush, pursued by an Immortal. The assassin drew his scimitar as the Immortal closed in with his sagaris. The Immortal slashed overhead with his axe, but the Hashashin dodged the blow and slashed at the Immortal shield, cutting halfway through the wicker. The Immortal kicked the assassin back and smashed the axe into the Hashashins’s shoulder.
The Immortals watch the trees carefully, studying all movement. Motion on a branch to his right catches the eye of the Immortal, and he throws his spear, only to see a bird fly off the branch he moves towards the brush to retrieve his spear as his fellow Immortals follow him, when suddenly a Hashashins drops down and decapitates the Immortal in the back.
The second Immortal turned with his sagaris and striked diagonally, cursing the man as he ripped his blade out , he turned towards his ally who had drawn his acinaces and dueled with a Hashashin. The Hashashin swung high with his scimitar, but the Persian parried and counter striked at the Hashashins’s head. He missed his target but was unashamed since he instead hit the Hashashins’s throat.
The final two Hashashins ready knives and throw several of the projectiles at the Immortals, none of which kill. The Persians slowly advance behind their shields, close enough for one to retrieve his spear. The Hashashins run out of knives and carefully draw their khanjars. The two separated, as did the Immortals. The first Hashashin runs into the open and yells at an Immortal, who quickly turns and charges. The Hashashins runs past his ally as the Persian throws his spear, impaling the fleeing assassin’s leg. As the Immortal ran to retrieve his weapon the second Hashashin emerged from a bush and slashed the Immortal with his scimitar. He turned to his ally and proceeded to help him up when he is interrupted by a blow to the head. The Immortal kicks the Hashashin down, crushing the injured one under his friend’s weight. The Immortal then crushes the final assassin with his axe.
What gave the Immortals the advantage here was the superior short range weaponry. The Immortals could keep up at long range with their bow and hit harder up close with the spear and sagaris. The Hashashins also were not nearly as experienced as the Immortals; they have fought far longer than the Hashashins, who would often die for their cause. The fight was close, but in the end the Immortals are the deadliest warrior.
Battle vs. Viking (by Goddess of Despair)Edit
The sun shines upon the grasslands, upon the bodies, upon the death. The lone Persian Immortal struts carnage, disgusted by all the mutilated bodies. What kind of barbarian would attack like this? The Immortal bent down and examined one corpse. “He’s Persian…” the Immortal thought to himself.
The Immortal turned the body, and revealed the man’s throat was cut, blood slowly dripping out of the wound. The Immortal looked down, disappointed. Suddenly he heard a rustling to his left, making him instinctively draw his bow.
The Viking entered the clearing, spear in one hand, axe in the other. Both of the weapons were bloodied. The Immortal readied an arrow and took aim at the barbarian. The shot flew through the air and hit the Viking’s shoulder.
The Viking threw down his axe and furiously tore out the arrow, which barely penetrated his chainmail. The Immortal reached for another arrow when unexpectedly the Viking hurled his spear, which slammed into the Immortal.
The Immortal fell to the ground, but quickly recovered .Scales were missing from his armor and his bow was broken in two. The Viking also began to close in with his great axe in his hands. The Immortal lifted a spear from the fallen soldier next to him as the Viking charged.
The Immortal thrusted at the Viking, who stepped back to avoid the thrust and tried to slam his great axe upon the Immortal’s head. The Immortal thought otherwise, and stepped to the side, avoiding the blow.
The Persian smacked the Viking with the blunt end of his spear, and then slashed at his hand, breaking the pole of the axe. The Viking shoved the Immortal back and unsheathed his longsword. The Immortal thrusted at the Viking, who dodged and split the weapon in two with a slash.
The Immortal, wielding his broken spear like a club, smashed the Viking’s head with it. The Viking’s helmet protected him for the most part, only it didn’t defend him from the ringing of the helmet upon being attacked. The Viking recovered and saw the Immortal had retreated to a broken down chariot.
The Viking pursued, but not before snatching a shield from a defeated warrior. The Immortal exited the chariot with a sagaris in one hand and his Acinaces in the other. The Viking charged, trying to ram the Persian with his shield.
However his plan backfired and the Immortal slammed his sagaris, piercing the shield and going partially into the Viking’s hand. The Viking roared in pain and kicked the Immortal, making him lose his grip on the axe.
The Viking slammed his sword into the ground, removed the sagaris and the shield from his arm, rearmed with his sword and charged at the Persian. The Viking swung high, but the Immortal parried and counter slashed, skimming the Viking’s cheek.
The Viking thrusted at the Immortal’s chest, damaging the scales even more. The Immortal responded by quickly thrusting his own sword into the Viking’s throat. The Persian tore out his sword and watched as the Viking crumbled to the ground, defeated.
The Viking is a tough fighter, however the Immortal's superior ranged weaponry alongside better training gave him a victory. The Viking was mainly restricted to close range fighting, which hindered him. The Persian Immortal is the deadliest warrior.
Battle vs. Carthaginian Warrior (by Deathblade 100)Edit
The battle starts with five Carthaginian Warriors,three infantry, one horseman and one on a war elephant, moving through a desert. They hear a trundling sound, as five Persian Immortals and a chariot appear through the haze. The Persian leader sees the Carthaginian army and orders his men to fire their composite bows. The Carthaginians raise their shields and block the attacks. One of the Carthaginians gets struck in the chest by the Persian arrows. The Carthaginian general sends one of his soldiers to retaliate. The soldier loads a stone into his sling and throws it into a Persian's head, killing him. The Persian leader nocks an arrow and fires it into the Carthaginian's throat. The Carthaginian leader dismounts from his elephant and prods it towards the Persian line.
The Persian charioteer charges his chariot at a Carthaginian warrior, slicing his legs. The elephant rears back and tramples one of the Persian spearmen, as he runs towards the creature. The charioteer charges his chariot at the Carthaginian leader. The Carthaginian throws a Soliferrum at the charioteer, killing him. The Carthaginian elephant stampedes towards the Persians, before the Persians fire their bows driving the elephant into a rage. The Carthaginians throw their Soliferrum at the creature, bringing it down.
The Persian leader draws his Acinaces and kills a Carthaginian foot soldier. The Carthaginian horseman slashes his Falcata into a Persian's neck killing him. The Carthiginian horseman wheels around only to be stabbed by the Persian's spear.
The leaders face each other and charge with their swords drawn and clash. After three minutes, the Persian leader thrusts with his Acinaces only to pulled off balance. The Persian Immortal raises his wicker shield only for the Falcata to go through the shield and scale armour and into the Persian's heart. The Carthaginian raises his bloody Falcata in the air and yells in victory.
Winner: Carthaginian Warrior
The Carthaginian Warrior had a better supply of weapons and armour. While the Persians had more X-Factors, the Carthaginian Warrior's better weapons secured the win.
Battle vs. Praetorian Guard (by Deathblade 100)Edit
Six Praetorian Guards stand around inside their campsite. One drawing back a Scorpion's string; the others holding a practice drill. A trundling sound fills the air as six Persian Immortals and their chariot arrive. The two forces face each other for a few seconds before the commander of the Persians, who is standing on the back of the chariot, yells out. Three of the Persians notch arrows to their bows and fire. The Romans see this and quickly form the Testudo formation. However, one Praetorian catches an arrow in his neck, hitting the carotid artery. The Praetorian at the Scorpion loads a bolt and aims it at the chariot just as the vehicle drives past a Praetorian, slashing his leg. The Scorpion fires hitting the charioteer and causing the vehicle to flip, killing the charioteer instantly.
The Praetorians draw their Gladius swords and advance. A Persian draws his Sagaris axe and hacks at a Praetorian's neck. A Praetorian tosses a Pilum at the Persians, killing one. A Praetorian throws another Pilum at a Persian and misses, before a Persian swing the counterweight of his spear into the Roman's head and plunges the tip into his heart. A thrust from a Gladius cut the Persian spearman's joy short.
The chariot wounded Praetorian rises up from the dead Persian, before a thrust from an Acinaces took him in the neck. A Persian runs back towards a dead comrade and grabs his Sagaris. A Praetorian unslings his Dolabra pick and hacks with the pick at the Persian axeman's chest, going through the ribs and into the heart. A Praetorian runs a Persian through with his Gladius.
The two Praetorians walk around looking for the last Persian Immortal. As a Praetorian looks around the chariot, the Persian Immortal leader emerges and drives his Acinaces through the Roman's Segmentata armour. The last Praetorian and Persian engage in a duel with their swords, before the Persian leader trips the Praetorian. As the Persian prepares to strike the final blow, the Praetorian unsheathes his Pugio dagger and plunges it into the Persian's chest.
The Praetorian gets back to his feet and yells "For Rome!" in victory.
Winner: Praetorian Guard
The Praetorians got this due to their superior metallurgy. While the Persians best weapon was their bow, the Romans just had the better technology.
