*** Play Arena for FREE ***

Arena is a PBEM gladiator-combat game set in the Imperial City. Players design and train gladiators to fight in a variety of arenas or in the dangerous but rewarding dungeons underneath the City. Successful gladiators purchase powerful magic weapons from the shops of the city, train with the finest teachers, spend their nights at quiet and restful inns, and enjoy the best in medical care at the Imperial City Hospital. Unsuccessful gladiators sleep on the streets or in the rude cots of the gladiator dormitories, buy second-hand weapons at pawn shops, and rely on faith healers when injured. Some gladiators join one of the many churches in the City, fighting for the honor (and with the magical help of) their god. Others form teams and compete for team prizes and awards.

Turns run every weekday night, so the action is fast and furious.

As a special offer, Olympia players who sign up for Arena before the end of May will receive $5 in free game play. Arena charges only $1 to create a gladiator and $0.50 to fight a combat. All other gameplay is free, so the credit is enough to create three gladiators and fight in four battles.

As I live, I say my friends, war on the AOO is possible yet. So sharpen your blade!

Another last second rumor. I really hate doing this. Really. I'd much rather be coming up with witty comments about the AOO's ancestery and the like. Honest. I feel so cheap.

In the beginning there was no one and it looks like it is getting that way again.

Once more, I have won this week's game!

Since players can join anytime and stay in the safe haven starting city, they can never be eliminated. How can the AOO "win" without eliminating all opposing players?
