the penned gladiator recruitment thread
« on: December 03, 2017, 07:55:26 PM »
Just a casual, semi-periodic place to remind people that we need more penned gladiators!  this is a free second character for you.  make it some hideous concept you've always thought about but were ashamed to try.  then get yourself slaughtered on the sands for all of us to enjoy!  we have only a handful that are really keeping this alive, and I think it would be great to see more of us!

I will bump this thread occasionally as a reminder.

Penned gladiators are restricted in play to the Allanak Arena. As a slave you are not permitted from leaving and are expected to train and then train some more for the periodic Games where you will then be brought up to have a fight to the death with another penned gladiator or a fierce beast or some other opponent!

In exchange for this very limited avenue of play you are allowed to play a penned gladiator at the same time you have a regular character!

The request tool on the front page. Put in a role application to the Allanaki Gladiators and staff will get back to you.

the only thing I'd modify is that you're not really expected to train as a penner, and it's totally cool to just show up on gameday.

Training is fun though. Show up and let the Reigning Gladiators beat the shit out of you and gloat. They need roleplay fun too!

So to make a brief summary, this could be a PC that I bring only once per week / two weeks to see if he dies in the arena and don't need to devote any more time to? Or I could login to get beat up in training and act as a slave prop?

That sounds sick.

This is interesting to me, what time do these gladiator RPs happen? I haven't played in Nak in a few months.

They used to be announced on the GDB. Someone should do that again! I vote: Bushranger.
Why? Random.

I found the BEST ROLL CALL EVER for this, and after enjoying macho man for a minute, I couldn't find any info on how to apply?

Role Aplication request with Borsail as the clan?

They happen when the RPT for them is scheduled, usually on a weekend at peak time but it depends on the Templar/Noble/Staff who are planning it.

Since, Allanaki Gladiators have become a real clan on the request tool.

we've been doing arena RPTs on alternating saturdays in the evenings server time.
I'm not involved in the planning anymore, I just show up when I'm told.  we have a subforum to talk about gladiator stuff and to coordinate times.
