An evening of gladiator warfare and celebration is planned for all of Rome to enjoy.
At the heart of the excitement sits Felix Festus, a lanista looking to win the public favor – and in doing so, a Senate seat – with the donation of his gladiators for exhibition. While no lives will be taken in the ring; honor, pride and the grand champion title are all at stake in the exhibition.
Although lives will be spared in the arena, the same will not hold true at the festivities.
One Roman will take their last breath at the party and it will be up to you to search out the guilty from the guileful. Was it the brute in a fight for his freedom? A senator unwilling to award another seat? A socialite who will not accept a rising of the classes? Or perhaps a slave whose secret runs so deep that murder is the only way to silence it.
