Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis 
is a tactical level combat card game based on the blood sport that reached its peak of popularity between 75 BC and 63 BC. Gladiators were mostly condemned slaves sentenced to train, and eventually die, in the arena for the entertainment of the Romans. However, Roman citizens and even Roman emperors opted to fight as “gladiators,” be it for gold or glory. But it was only those slaves whose fates were to live life as gladiators who quested for the rudis. The rudis was nothing more than a symbolic wooden sword, and yet it represented the ultimate prize to a slave-gladiator. To be awarded the rudis meant fame and possibly fortune, but most of all it meant... freedom.

Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis places you on the sandy floor of the arena, in the role of a slave gladiator with deadly attacks and deft defenses at your disposal. Play as a light gladiator, protected only by cloth padding and a piece of leather, but with maneuverability to strike at an unprotected flank or back; or don the manica, ocrea and helmet of the heavy gladiator, wearing metal armor and carrying a large rectangular shield, a 22-pound scutum, making you a stalking, nearly impregnable, death dealer.

No matter what style of gladiator you wish to play, Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis, will delight you with its attention to detail. Taking into account historical research on the cruel but fascinating “sport” of gladiatorial combat, while giving a passing nod to the cinematic license portrayed in popular movies like Gladiator and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis provides all the excitement, variety and challenge of combat in the arenas of Rome.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
