    To all New and upcoming Guilds and Towns, Prepare your warriors for "Gladiator Wars"! Here's the deal in a nutshell so far....


    1 vs 1 "Gladiator Champion" (Anything goes)

    1 vs 1 "Spell Slinger" champions (Magic only)

    2 vs 2 "Brothers in Arms" Champions (Anything goes)

    3 vs 3 "Gladiator Team" Champions (Anything goes)


    All battles will be no interference from the outside, We will have guards if needed.
    The "Spell Slinger" will be only magic, if any melee or range is used, execution is the price! So please keep it to spells only for that particular battle!
    There will be prizes given for those events!! (Add ons or Gold Pieces , To be announced prior to the grand event!) This is only an Annual event, once a year! Don't miss out on it!


    We will be Commentating the matches and each fighter can pick their own entrance music, live or recorded interviews (*exclusive to Gladiator Wars only) via www.avatarsradio.com get in contact with Amber Raine, for selections of intro music.
    In addition to that, If selected by blaquerogue/Torniquet(*in game) your vendor will be spotlighted via www.avatarsradio.com
    Contact blaquerogue via messages in the forums.

    Also if you do not claim a town or guild you can inquire with blaquerogue/ Torniquet/Ebon Viper/ Squirrel (*in game), who will be sponsoring a few of you that don't have a guild or town.

    Also look up those characters in game for training and help. When the game goes live, Torniquets "PVP School of Don't Dirtnap" will have registrations open for those that may need a little help, we will have special guest trainers as well!


    I look forward to meeting you all in the releases, feel free to ask for help or ask questions about all the above, through messaging or in game when I'm running around!

    Read through the rest of this thread to familiarize yourself with what "Gladiator Wars" is all about, and updated changes as well.

    Each town or guild will sponsor their fighters for "Gladiator Wars" no more than 3 per town or guild.

    These events are sponsored solely by myself and a few volunteers, when there are prizes involved it come from pocket and/or charity, by myself and others. Even though we may have guild titles above our names, by no means is it sponsored by that guild, town, or Devs. (unless one of them decide to offer up stuff) in situations like that, I will then announce who offered up stuff. "Gladiator Wars" is solely itself with no sides (we are Neutral, and we invite friends and enemies alike to participate and compete) All are welcome to come and participate or spectate.

    We will be having various Gladiator Battles through out the year building up to this one event, per year. So keep watch on the forums for listing of battles and areas to be fought in!!!! ( Saturdays mostly at 9pm eastern time.) Many preliminaries will come first prior to the main event, please get your teams ready. All fights are to the death.

    Great idea! A lot of emergent gameplay right there. (might want to edit one sentence there about 1.5 minutes of talking!

    Stuff I'm loving:
    * Ticket sales can be used to fund prizes.
    * Avatars radio for live commentary! Hope they like that idea!
    * The theatre in the stretch goal might be a worthy arena, otherwise the devs can create one.
    * guild / city sponsored fighters.
    * popular fighters attracting bigger crowds.
    * paper can be used to create programmes. Can sell for a small amount.

    Great idea!

    Suggestions:
    All forms are death matches - not sure how you would do the knock out except if one dude is running around screaming YIIIELD!! (say a 'going to 10% HP = knock out' won't work imo)

    Keep entry fees a low novelty fee. If you want to do this partly as your living, I suggest you instead earn your gold by being the bookmaker.

    Organise a schedule of matches f.x. fixed weekly time. Have a bulletin board with the schedule at your house.

    So far i have it all laid out..except schedules.
    The "knock out" would be basically a duel, HP depleted your down but not dead, still waiting to hear how all that combat is going to work. I dont want a death or killing to cost the individual virtue loss etc...
    I have a tier set up for championships 20 people 1 v 1 when one loses the other advances and so forth until the Ultimate championship is down to 2,
    maybe get some kind of support from SotA on a belt you can wear thats states champion, and hopefully a title can be placed on individuals "Gladiator Champion" or something like that.
    have guilds and vendors come sell their wears, and foods at the battles, spotlighting one or 2 vendors or guilds, having booths set up on my lot for that purpose.
    So far things are looking good on my end. Still have to figure prices, entry fees etc.. (in due time)

    As far as my play style ill meet competitors from all forms of styles (PVP and PVE), help them pitch themselves and find sponsors. etc.. Towns and cities could do the same with their members.
    Even if SoTA doesnt come forth with a belt or title it can still be done :)

    All suggestions are looked at im on the forums all the time (if not banned for certain amounts of time, lol) Ill be here to see what every ones ideas are! Keep them coming!

    If you would like me to travel to your city it would be my pleasure as long as we have a controlled arena! If this interests any of you as far as competitors please message me and let me know about your character so i have something to tell the fans, and also what type of involvement you would like if your a vendor. the sooner i get these messages the faster ill be able to get the games up and running, And have booths etc.. set up for your arrival.

    I'd basically put the least possible mechanics around it and let people RP. It's just a place where you die without dying.

    Absolutely going to have games like this in my village. Depending on numbers it is likely to be be pay to take part, knock out rounds with the winner taking a nice sum of money and goodies.

    Doesnt bother me in the slightest if it is to the death.....hopefully it can be so there can be no disputes (I know in UO I have come back from 2 or 3 hp to claim victory).

    I love this thread.

    I think the devs should definitely make a mini-Colosseum for us bloodthirsty fans and combatants alike! That might even make a castle lot worthwhile, the most awesome public building ever : COLOSSEUM ;-)

    A call to all fighters PVE and PVP! If you would like to participate in the "Gladiator Wars"
    please drop me a short background about why you are the greatest fighter! so i can start doing spots for you guys on interviews to build your titles up and create a following! I look forward to hearing from you all! please only send me messages with your characters name and why he/she is the greatest fighter of all time! Also to build a roster.

    --include your character name (not forum)
    ---what city if any you are from

    Great idea Blaquerogue. This will be a good addition to the communities. Hopefully we will be able to get arena that only allow combatants to fight.
    Keep up the great ideas.

    No this is not the PVP you and i crave it is just an event where all can partake and lose nothing and gain prizes, make bets buy goods, Its tournaments, PVP is still in the game, this isnt something that will take the place of good ole pvp! Dont worry! You know I crave PVP as much as you!

    Dunno... This isnt WWF. Naively I think the game mechanics can't be as easily fooled into a fake outcome. Is very easy to RP a loss and rake in tons of money from gambling.
