Rise of the Alstalar
Ophen is a place of relative safety for the survivors of the demonic apocalypse. Fighting in the streets of Ophen is prohibited, and the peace is kept by the Ophen Guard. The Fight Pit was originally built to allow citizens of Ophen a place to settle scores away from the gaze of the guard.
Eventually Fight Pit became a weekly event. Its location changed with each contest and only those directly involved in the organization knew where it would occur. After a while, the Alstalar realized the benefits of having a place where violence could be purged.
The Fight Pit of today is no longer a place to work out grudges, but a fully developed gladiator’s haven. Spectators place bets and heroes rise through the ranks. Some of the gladiators even serve in the Ophen Guard and the Ophen Rangers.
