In the Dragon Empire, the imperial city of Axis is the hub of civilization—but even there, the barbaric spectacle of bloody arena combat draws cheering crowds. Who among the gladiators will ascend to fame and glory today, and who will fall?
Here you’ll find notes on gladiatorial armor, dragon patrons, crest-taking, staged holy wars, Dragon Empire gladiators as they compare to Roman Empire gladiators, the Lich King’s arenas, and other surprises involving war sports. By Rob Heinsoo.
