Game Description

Game Synopsis”I shall be closer to you for the next few days -- which will be the last of your miserable lives -- than that bitch of a mother that brought you screaming into this world. I did not pay good money for you for your company! I paid it so that I could profit from your death. And as your mother was there at your beginning, so I shall be be there at your end. And when you die -- and die you shall! -- your transition shall be to the sound of applause. Gladiators: I salute you.”
-Antonius Proximo (Oliver Reed) “Gladiator”

Gods only know how you became a slave, but you are. Bought by a gladiator trainer, your soul purpose in life is to fight and eventually die for his benefit. Perhaps you were a captured soldier or a foreigner who fell into debt. Regardless of how you came to lose your freedom you are now the property of another. The gladiators in the arena have been divided into three groups; the warriors, the sorcerers and the cannon fodder. Thankfully you were not placed in the third. Depending on your aptitudes you have been cast into he role of either a showy fighter or a flashy magician.

World Synopsis
“What kind of a world, then is Tékumel? Socially and culturally, Tékumel is as complex—and as alien to modern thinking—as Byzantium, ancient Egypt, Tenochtitlan, or the India of the Mughals.”
M.A.R. Barker, Introduction to Swords & Glory Volume 1, Copyright ©1983 M.A.R. Barker.
