General Information


Blaring fanfares northeast of the pub of Arilin announces a great big show of games where brave gladiators may challenge their skills and prove their worth for the title of a champion. This large structure where these challenges are to be taken place within is commonly known as the Coliseum established by Mandrake, hence Mandrake's Coliseum.
Upon entry into the Coliseum from Arilin, by pressing the button to enter the portal, the player is sent to the Entry Portal located at the beginning, the west end, of Valor's Walk. Valor's Walk stretches eastwards to the Entrance Ramp which goes upward and eastward to meet and enter into the western side of the Coliseum. At its highest point, the Entrance Ramp opens into two direction. West of this point leads to one of the four gilded stairwells leading up to the Viewing Balcony, east leads to a stairwell which is one of the four and the busiest stairwells leading down to the Plebeian Stands.
The Coliseum is circular in shape. This means that the Viewing Balcony and the Plebeian Stands draw a circle. The Viewing Balcony is the outer ring and draws the larger of the two circles. On the outer side of this circle, at its north, west, east, and south points, are alcoves that is the Hall of Champions meant for displaying statues of the champions of the Coliseum. The inner side of the circle, at its north, west, east, and south points, are the four Gilded Stairwells that connects to the corridors serving as the transition points between the Viewing Balcony and the Plebeian Stands.
The Plebeian Stands is the inner ring, drawing a smaller circle. Its outer side, at its north, west, east, and south points, are four separate stairwell connecting to the corridors leading to the Viewing Balcony. The inner side of the circle, at its north, west, east, and south points, are dark doorways that lead down into the Hypogenum.
The Hypogenum is shaped like a square with four long halls leading outward at the center of each side of the square shape. The end of these long halls going away from the square connect to the Plebeian Stands by way of stairs going up. The square shape is composed of maze-like network of corridors, hence the Hypogenum Labyrinth, where the gladiator must navigate to find challenges that await them in these dimly lit corridors. The western long outer corridor house token NPCs with their respective signs which can be read. These NPCs accept tokens dropped by the bosses of the Coliseum.
