Gladiator is a web-based fantasy battle game. In this game you take the role of a battle coach in control of several gladiators who engage in hand-to-hand combat. You create, train and coach these characters and watch them battle (that is, read text transcripts of their battles). You compete with other players and their characters to gain standing in the arena rankings.

Fun features: * No "turns" or set time periods. You can log in as often or rarely as you like to play. * Web and/or email battle reports. * Unique english prose generator makes for entertaining reading like this:

Nancy de la Nasty takes aim and slashes at Graa Rockbrow. Graa Rockbrow moves his quarterstaff to block but Nancy de la Nasty's long sword hits before he even begins to move his quarterstaff. Nancy de la Nasty's long sword slashes Graa Rockbrow hard. The strength of Nancy de la Nasty's blow is devastating. Graa Rockbrow thinks, "Whoops, I won't do that again."
