Step into the arena and face your destiny!Gladiator one

Imagine a dark world, bleak and subjugated by a overbearing and violent tyranny.

Imagine gladiators, desperate prisoners forced to fight to get their freedom back.

Imagine a twisted society, built on intrigues and power over other men’s lives.

Ars Gladiatoria is all of this, a tale of desperate men seeking freedom, a competitive game of strategy.

Ars Gladiatoria is a game of strategy and storytelling, mixing board and role playing games, for 3 to 6 players. There’s no need of a Game Master, and being competitive in its nature, each player will create his gladiator to face the other players in a race to a slaughter with only one winner.

Ars Gladiatoria is a modular game, and can be approached as a role playing game, taking a couple of sessions to tell all your gladiators’ race to glory in an attempt to dominate over the others, or it can be played as a board game, choosing your champion between the 10 available archetypes, and one scenario.

This edition of Ars Gladiatoria is built on the second italian edition, and has been revised and fixed for an even more clear and fluid text, new gladiatorial artsnew combat secrets and new Gods of the arena have been added to be deployed, all of this in an optimized version to be checked on the fly, the text is laid out to be read and played directly at the table.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
