Westportian Arena Matches (Part 1)

Posted on Updated on

One of the core adventuring concepts in the Westport Campaign Setting is the power and political whirlwind that surrounds the Arena. Because of this the players are often ready to ‘Enter the Arena’ at any given moment. It’s also very lucrative for the character financially, if they win of course. So I needed a quick way to generate an arena match for the players.

A couple of key concepts are always reliable in the Arena, there will always be some sort of pit, and there will always be Power-up points. Here is the skeleton of the Arena Matches:
