    February 21, 2009: Call For Playtesters: GURPS Gladiators



    We are looking for playtesters for a new e23 supplement: GURPS Martial Arts: Gladiators, written by Volker Bach and Peter V. Dell'Orto. This supplement provides extensive details on gaming with perhaps the most famous martial arts athletes in history: Roman gladiators. It covers:</p>
    • More than a dozen new styles, from the familiar net-and-trident-carrying retiarius to the exotic blind-fighting andabata!
    • Templates for gladiators, their expert trainers (doctores), and their bosses, the lanista.
    • Rules to determine the effects of crowd participation.
    • Guidelines for running a campaign as individual gladiators, or running a whole gladiator school - and school vs. school campaigns as well!
    • Exotic new weapons like the four-pointed quadrens and the bizzare scissors glove.
    • And much more!


    Playtesters will need access to and familiarity with GURPS Martial Arts as well as the Basic Set in general. Prospective playtesters will also need to be registered e23 customers who have spent more than $50 at e23 in the past 12 months.</p>

    Prospective playtesters please e-mail jwilson@io.com with [GLAD] (for "Gladiators") in the subject, and include your preferred e-mail address for the closed playtest mailing list message, correct spelling of your name as it may appear in print, your e23 login name, and a few words about your qualifications, experience, and current gaming group(s).</p>

    Lack of experience with GURPS and playtesting in general will not disqualify you. Newer players' impressions are very important, and we encourage first-time playtesters to apply for a reserved portion of slots available, as well as those with professional or other real-life experience with the subject matter.</p>

    Yeah, Right. I may be a die-hard sjg fan, but I don't spend money like that. So, I doubt I will be playtesting this stuff.
    Sure, Life IS like a bowl of cherries, but how SWEET they are depends on how much crap your willing to take to fertalize your DREAMS. Michael L. Cross
