Gladiatori!

 

Welcome to the Napnuts Gladiatorial campaign! The campaign involves a competition among three Gladiatorial schools (Ludi) for wealth, fame and glory, while their gladiators strive to achieve esteem in the eyes of the audience, and chance to become a free man, or simply to survive! If a gladiator's Popularity is high enough, and he happens to be seen and appreciated by the Emperor during a Spectacula, he may be given the Rudis, a wooden sword that is the highest honour amongst gladiators, and be freed (yes, in case you haven't realised, all of you start as slaves)! 

Hear ye! Hear ye!  The Rex Coliseum in the distant Roman dependency of Sporus has been officially opened.  The local potentate, Tongus Rex, has a goal - to see a Sporus Gladiator School make it to the Known World Cup Gladiatorial Games by 220 AD.  Three local Gladiator Schools will battle it out to see which one will make it to Rome!   

To help you understand the background of the various Ludi, their "help wanted" ads are as follows:
