The Gladiator Pits


In March 2000, Erwin Andreasen made a post to The Mud Connector with the first ideas for a contest - to see who could construct the best mud in 16K or less of source code. He later tidied up the rules and gathered a group of judges, all of whom had considerable mudding experience. I decided to take part in this contest, and this mud is my competition entry.

The Gladiator Pits is a player-vs-player deathmatch game set in a fictional fighting arena. Players are given a number of points which they can use to customise their characters before engaging in one-on-one fights against other characters.
