|Here are some sample GURPS characters and arena graphics for use in online combat sessions using Virtual Tabletop programs.|
|Ishaq ibn'Fazal||Ishaq ibn'Fazal grew up on a farm in al'Haz. He left home abruptly
following a blazing argument with his father, but now deeply regrets this and is
determined to make his fortune and return home. For the last few years he has been working
as a teamster on caravans running back and forth through Tredroy, but he is now looking
for a way to make money fast.
He is a big lad, used to felling trees and wielding a Great Axe, and has been tempted by the rewards of the Arena.
But Ishaq has no formal training, and wears only leathers. He's fast, but he'd better get that first blow in quick, or he'll be carried back to his farm on the back of a wagon.
|Flyn the Bald||Flyn has spent his life as a foot soldier in the Megalan Legions, most of
it in the mud. Two months ago the army decided it didn't want him anymore. Without work,
money, or purpose, Flyn has been drawn to enter the Arena.
He doesn't really care if he never walks out again.
|Tatsuhiko||Tatsuhiko is the youngest son of five, and left Clan Nyodo in Sahud a year
ago with a deep determination to become a Weapon Master with the quarterstaff. After
training at a dojo perched on the northern cliffs of the Zarak mountains, he chose to walk
the Path of Strangers, and so is now wandering through the lands to the south.
He is a quiet, lightly built man, with a black pony tail. Dressed in forest green silks, and eschewing armour, the betting at the Arena is heavily against him.
