Let The Games Begin!
GURPS Imperial Rome Second Edition takes you to a world of adventure, intrigue, gladiators, and glory. The Roman Empire is alive with campaign options, from orgies in the decadent patrician villas to battles with pirates off the coast of Sicily. As an adventurer in the Imperial Age of Rome, you can . . .
- Journey through the narrow streets of the greatest city in the world.
Haggle with shop owners, debate with senators on the floor of the Forum, or run through the dark alleys with the infamous Roman gangs.
- Visit exotic provinces like Greece, Egypt and Asia, and meet traveling thinkers, merchants, soldiers and mysterious natives - from the barbarian Celts of northern Britain to the nomadic Berbers of Africa.
- Be a slave gladiator - clash with other warriors, fend off dangerous beasts, or fight a naval battle in the flooded arena. Or race your chariot around the Circus Maximus, cheating death and vying for Imperial favor. Explore the arenas of the Roman Empire, where you can prove your mettle before traveling to Rome to fight in the greatest arena of all - the Colossseum.
- March to war with the Roman legions, defending the borders against Carthagian invaders or the savage Huns of Asia. Arm yourself with new combat options for legionaries and gladiators - including martial arts rules!
