Buy Now$2.50 USD or more

Where you're from, you're one of many hard bitten, tough fisted, fighting types. In this team, you're the hardest and toughest and strongest. Maybe that means you enjoy the fight as much as the saving, but what's wrong with that? You save the day either way.

The Gladiator is a playbook for Masks: A New Generation. It channels the heroes who live for the glory of the next fight and draw admiration and ire for their exploits. Live out teenage glory days where everyone knows who you are and what you did last weekend all while being the strongest there is.

The Gladiator is a playbook by Brandon Leon-Gambetta for the game Masks: A New Generation by Brendan Conway. It requires Masks: A New Generation to play which can be purchased from Magpie Games.

This is the alpha version of The Gladiator. By Brandon's release standards, that means it should be playable, but in game economies may need adjusting and moves may need tweaking. It is an evolving document that will receive updates as they are written.

*A simplistic but printable table-friendly layout for print and use at your table

Non-Monetary updates will include
