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.

Game Master SynopsisI will be the Head GM for this game, with Li2O as the Co. GM. The type of ga you can expect from us is one that is heavy on the story-telling, and roleplay aspect.

Thread Bump, while there seem to be a number of people.

Looking forward to submitting a character. I'll have something put together in the next few days.

Awesome! Looking forward to it!

High level interest.

'Beginner Friendly' sounds like something I desperately need. When I was introduced to role-play, I was able to find out many of the common terms independently, and I think I understand the syntax to the extent that I will be able to grasp severely watered down versions of role-play jargon. I will make an attempt at putting something together for this situation.

Great! Lookin' forward to an application. If you have any questions feel free to ask either of us. Most of the relevant info should be up in the threads, but we realize that we are more familiar with the sibject than others and might not notice areas that we left a little vague.

Thread bump, and glad to hear you're interested Mabeuf. I ahd a chance to look over your character, and I do really like what I see.

Beginner friendly. Seeing as I've never done PbP before, let alone much gaming at all, beginner friendly sounds like a wonderful thing! I think I'll start mulling over a character and see what I come up with in the next few days.

Great! I'm glad you're interested, and Can't wait to see what you come up with. Id you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask either myself, or Languid. we'd both be happy to help out. Also, welcome to Myth-Weavers.


I'm brand new to role playing and this site and I'd like to join a game to get started! How can I start?
