Smallwikipedialogo Wikipedia has an article about:
A gladiator was an occupation and prestige class.[1]


Gladiators were creatures, often humanoid, who fought other creatures for the amusement of others. While gladiatorial contests were forbidden in many civilized lands, as of 1479 DR they remained popular in Calimport, where the Pasha Marod el Arhapan held a large number of games in a floating arena.[2]

Due to their size and strength goliaths made perfect gladiators. Slavers were known to steal goliath infants and raise them as brutal fighters for the arena.[3]
