Gladiator is a multiplayer melee-combat total conversion for Half-Life.
Centered around the gladiator battles in ancient Rome, this mod puts emphasis on
strategic melee battles.

Elements that have been incorporated to improve strategic melees are:

-A slower pace of battle, so you can plan your moves. This is not about
hyper-speed battles, but slightly more drawn out melees.
-Blocking with shields or weapons.
-Round based team play, where one player will have to wait the round
out after being killed. Each player belongs either to the Gladiators or
the Romans.
-Different classes which provide different weapons and skills
-Special moves: kicking, sand kicking, shield bash, and other skills
depending on class type as well.

Elements that add a lot of atmosphere to this mod:

-Notoriety. This is a measure of your popularity with the crowd, and determines
the available selection of classes.
-Beasts included in battles add an element of danger. Lions, tigers and rhinoceros
are planned.
-An interactive crowd that spectates battles between players and reacts accordingly.

Gladiator Alpha

News 2 comments

Hail gladiators,

Well I decided to bite the bullet and release the very alpha build of gladiator. Remember, this is an alpha, so it will crash, but the server
will automatically restart after 20 seconds.

Here is the link to the client:
Alpha 02 client

The server is password protected, so if you want to try out the alpha,
please email me. I will not accept all applicants since I only have 1 server with 10 players max. First come first serve.

The server will only be up during non-business hours of 7 PM EST to 9 AM EST and during the weekend. I can't change this situation, but if anyone wishes to help me out with another dedicated server, then I won't have these time restrictions.

I have posted the manual (what little of it there is) on the forums
here.

Have fun!
