Under the Iron Sky
Bloodsport is the name of the game in Avarest’s busy arena.
Monster Bashes are held in the evening as warmup and introduction as the crowds cheer and eat.
The Games begin at nightfall, hundreds of torches and lanterns lighting the field.
Only in the black of night under torchlight do true colors gleam. The blue of expensively dyed tabards that could buy you a house in Darktowne; the white of plumes and feathers worn by visiting fools, soon to die; the yellow of gold exchanging hands; the red of blood in the air. The gladiators are Avarest’s artists, the arena their gallery, the populace their patrons.
