All Combat, All The Time - Irorium Arena

Morituri Te Salutant: Irorium Arena - Forum
Pathfinder - Golarion

You should see the Colosseum Spaniard. Fifty-thousand Romans... watching every movement of your sword... willing you to make that killer blow. The silence before you strike and the noise afterwards. It rises. It rises up... like a storm. As if you were the thunder god himself. - Proximo

Have you ever wanted to try out a character in battle, but no appropriate game showed up?
Have you ever wanted to experience challenging, fun combat without having to wade through endless dialogue & exploration?
Do you want to shamelessly optimize, roll dice, and just watch the carnage?

Then this game is for you!

The game has been running for nearly a year now and we are looking for some new blood (to spill!). The gladiator season progresses through a series of weeks, we are close to finishing Week 6, which means there should be enough time for you to submit your new characters to be ready for Week 7.

All properly built characters are accepted. Please join!

Game Description:

Absalom, the city at the center of the world, and at the top of a hill in the foreign quarter, overlooking this grand city sits the Irorium Arena. It is a huge stone edifice, with 200-foot high outer walls and a 10-acre central stage. Standing around the outer wall are 33 statues of famous warriors, masters of Iroriís faith and champions of the arena over the centuries, each statue 150 feet tall and facing outward. There remains open spots along the wall for new statues. Will you risk your life to compete in the arena for the chance to be immortalized as one of the greatest gladiators of all time?

The Game

This game will be arena combat at its finest. You will control one (or more) gladiators who will fight once a week in the arena for wealth and glory. Gladiators will fight through a 16-week season of PVE and/or PVP combat (all PVP combat is completely optional). This will be almost purely roll-play, so get out your slide-rule and prepare to crunch some numbers. This is your chance to pit your most deadly, most munchkiny, most creative builds against the best the GM and your fellow players can throw at you. Expect no mercy.

Some highlights:

  • You will experience challenging PVE and/or PVP combat without any fluff to bog you down.
  • Create a Visiting Gladiator to try out a one-time concept, or pick Career-Mode to watch your gladiator grow and level up over the season.
  • A creative and deadly assortment of match types to keep you guessing and having fun.
  • You have the choice of whether you are brave enough to fight to the death.
  • A chance to build a fan-base as you put on a show for the bloodthirsty fans of the arena using performance combat.
  • As an entertainer and an athlete you can use unique downtime rules to advance your gladiator career.
  • Two tiers of gladiators starting at 1st or 4th level to accommodate fresh-faces and experts alike.

We will always be recruiting and all properly built gladiators will be accepted. Though match-slots will be limited by the number of GMs willing to run one. Players are encouraged to lend a hand as co-GM as well. Don't worry, you can still control your own PCs (in other matches).

See the character creation guidelines here.

Opportunities for role-play will exist, but will be purely player led and won't affect the overall game. Despite this, the game is firmly set within Golarion and your character should fit within the world of Golarion as well.

This is a year in now, right? Awesome that it's still going! If PVE/PVP is your thing, you can't go wrong with this game!

Still going! You're always welcome to stop in for another match (or come back permanently!). One nice part of this format is that there is no ongoing narrative that requires everyone's constant participation. You can drop off for a few months and then pick it right back up where you left off with no guilt.

Looks like Week 7 will be ending soon (it went by quick!) so now is a good time to step in with a new character. We'll take all correctly built gladiators!

Can we still apply? I have character ready if yes. Just needs a backstory and looked over and he's good to go.

Absolutely, there is still time! Post a link to your character sheet (in private tags) in the thread in the character creation forum so I can look it over.
