The City of Endless Arenas


D&D 5E


This is a cooperative arena-style game, where groups of gladiators must work together to defeat a dazzling array of opponents and environmental hazards.

If you like a good fight and are interested in trying out different builds, this is the place for you.

If you want a plot-light environment with some good combat and plenty of opportunity for some good roleplaying on the side, this is the place for you.

If you are new to the site or to DnD 5e, wanting a little experience before jumping right into the formal adventures and games, this is a good place to get that experience.

There is something for everybody, and plenty of gold and loot for all!


In the Third Age, the land of Kamora was covered in strife. The land was divided by various lords trying to rule their patch of earth, while monsters plagued the lands. Hordes of Orcs and Goblins came down from the mountains, pillaging the small kingdoms easily. Undead rose and feasted on unsuspecting villages with little resources to defend themselves, while kobolds looted any caravans that tried to venture on any of the trade routes.

It wasn’t until a charismatic leader, King Dreslyn, was able to unify the lands that they were able to drive the hordes back. The unified kingdoms brought an unbreakable front to the beasts and monsters and soon all lived in peace and harmony. King Dreslyn, however, was a clever fellow and knew that the people could not remain content for long without strife. The King was worried about two things: his warriors becoming soft and unpracticed in a time of peace, and, even more importantly, he was concerned about in-fighting among the great lords he had brought together.

It was then that King Dreslyn founded the city of Bloodfall, a city that would be bathed in blood in the name of peace. The King invited each lord to build a grand arena in the city to their own specifications. Warriors of each land were recruited to fight in the arenas; membership as a gladiator made you eligible to fight in any given arena each week. Slaves fought side by side with knights and prisoners trying to earn their freedom. The arenas have no prejudice: they thirst for everyone’s blood equally.

That was 300 years ago. King Dreslyn is now known as the Great King and Bloodfall has developed beyond anyone’s expectations. Great warriors come to join the ranks of Gladiators, and slave masters gamble the lives of their slaves in the grand competitions. The Lords of the arenas have made their battles more inventive and hostile with every generation, considering a great battle a work of pristine art. Factions of Gladiators now compete for dominance: some as lethal killers, other as leaders who keep their comrades in the battle. Every flavor and style of Gladiator fights in the arena and all are welcome.

The Lords of the Arena challenge you… will you answer their call?

Just to give anyone thinking about joining some reason to sign up, your first introduction battle has been announced. Come check it out, registration will open for the fight on Monday August 31st. You will want to have your character cratered and approved to join in. If tactical combat is not your thing, but you want to do some free style role playing, you can come hang out in the tavern as well and swap stories with other gladiators.

The first round of fights will start soon get your gladiators in now. For those of you avoiding the arena for a lack of roleplaying I promise you that there are plenty of opportunities for as much or as little as you desire. Come take a look and see what the arena has to offer.

There will be a day or so to sign up for fight so you should have plenty of time to get your character in.

Our first level 1-2 fight is over, but there is a mini event going on while we wait for our level 3 fight to wrap up. Any new players wanting to join can still get into that event if you want to get your feet wet before the next full battle.

It's a good time to get your character up as we are prepping for the next round of battles.
