Acquire leather armor.

There is leather armor of all sorts and sizes. You aquire some.

Attempt to befriend small green creature on screw pump.

You hop on the screw pump next to the goblin. Your feet don't quite reach the pedals. You say hello in kobold.

Adopt bodybuilder poses and flex our muscles to impress her.

You flex your working arm.

She giggles.

Also, we should probably make our own splint out of extra wooden training weapons and threads from our cloths.

You break a training spear and use part of it to improvise a splint.

The door to the danger room swings open.

In addition to the flexing, see if dodging skills allow you to perform a back-flip for maximum assertion of dominance over the gaurd.

You are a legendary dodger. Of course you can do a backflip. You flex on that guard.

"Bravo, bravo.", he says. He pulls you, the other dwarf and the goblin into a huddle.

He continues, "Together we are going to conquer those monsters! Who's ready to TRAIN and get SICK GAINS?"

The goblin squirms out of the huddle. She says, "I'll do what I must to survive even if that means being entertainment for you filthy dwarves."

The other dwarf says, "Please, I just want to go back to my family."

The goblin replies, "At least you get to go free after the fight. Champion, why would you volunteer to fight in the pits?"

"for death and glory of course. Now, little one, we have to get you ready for the fight. Would you rather spend our time sparing or in the danger room?"

Easy.

Spar in the danger room.

You use hand gestures to convey the idea of sparing in the danger room.

"What a novel idea." the champion says. "We will get you in shape in no time!" You and the champion squeeze into the danger room together.

You are pelted by wooden spikes but they mostly bounce off your armor. You don't take any injury beyond light bruising. You and the champion wrestle for over an hour bringing you to competant wrestler status. More impressively, you shoot up to professional armor user.

"Times up." A guard says. You and the other gladiators are led down a series of tunnels ending in a large copper wall and a weapon rack. The weapons on the rack are steel and of decent quality.

Which weapon do you take?
