Red Sand Black Moon: Fantasy Gladiatorial Combat


The Gladiators of Ancient Rome sometimes, but not always, fought to the death for the amusement of the crowd. If a Gladiator fought well he could appeal for mercy in the hope that his performance had earned him a reprieve.


Talomir, the fantasy world of Warrior Heroes and Rally Round the King, offers no such luxury. Gladiatorial combat thrives in Talomir but it’s strictly on the job training. There are no Gladiator schools or benevolent Patrons that will provide you the chance to learn your craft. Instead you learn on the battlefield or in some cases the back alleys of the decadent cities of Tropilium or Demeskeen, home of the largest arenas. But more than likely you’ll just die in some rat infested arena in a backwater town.

Ah, but if you succeed Fame and Fortune await.

Red Sand Black Moon uses mechanics similar to those found in Red Sand Blue Sky, the immensely popular game of Ancient Roman Gladiators. But Red Sand Black Moon takes it a step farther.

It allows you to fight gladiator matches with any fantasy figure you may already have!

Red Sand Black Moon has over twenty fantasy races with sixty plus characteristics or Signatures that allows you to create your own unique gladiator. Want to play a Troll? Yep. Demon? Got it. Dashing Knight? You bet!

Like all Two Hour Wargames games Red Sand Black Moon can be played solo or same side against the game mechanics as well as head to head against your friends

Red Sand Black Moon includes:

  • 20+ pre-generated opponents in paper counter form.
  • A campaign system to track the progress of your gladiators.
  • An arena to fight your matches.
  • And as much detail as you want to use.

Red Sand Black Moon - THE fantasy gladiator game!

Gameplay comments:
Player (or players) generates their character in a way similar to RPGs but lighter. Then the character is pitted against randomly generated opponents (or gladiators generated by other players) on an arena divided into several zones. The closer to the heart of the arena, the better for the fighter.

All fights are fought to death of one opponent. In addition to standard attacks, some creatures are capable of special attacks like biting, spitting or tail attacks. Initiative is determined randomly and models react to their opponent's actions, so it's not a typical IGOUGO game.

For those who are familiar with Two Hour Wargames, this game is more detailed, as it aims at much lower number of miniatures than their other games.

Campaign rules allow to follow your gladiator on their journey to the heart of the empire, where most powerful enemies and greatest glory awaits.

Product Information

File Size:
9.8 MB
Original electronic
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.
