The arena has been around as long as anyone can remember.
So has its champion, The Dark Slayer.
Year in and year out, the city of Dark Haven acquires
prisoners and slaves from around the world to be devoured as inexpensive
gladiators by its cherished arena.

Others race up the ranks, grow in power and, in
the end, are consumed by the Dark Slayer.
A few of them manage to live in relative comfort;
gaining a bit of prestige, a few fans, and a bit of money. They
train hard, explore Dark Haven, choose their foes wisely, and get
plain lucky. Then they get old, and slow. They too are dead.
Escape is unheard of. It cant happen. The
