I had a chance to play another game of Red Sand Black Moon--this time a four-player free-for-all. I took a human soldier, my opponents were a beastman, a snakeman, and a Black Moon orc. Ed had figured out a rating system for gladiators, and my human and the serpent man were rated 8, while the orc was a 9 and the beastman 11 (the higher the rating, the better the gladiator; but if you beat someone with a lower rating, you don't gain experience).
The serpent man took a blade to the belly at the start of the combat; then the beastman sliced up the orc (cutting him more than a dozen times). The beastman and the human then engaged each other, with the human getting a couple of thrusts with her trident into the beastman's chest to win the game.
