Just an interest check at this point, to see if anyone is interested in playing in a GURPS 4th Edition Arena Combat RPG. It would focus on the combat on a blow-by-blow basis, with characters being young arena fighters starting out in their careers. It would be in Extreme due to gore, and nonconsensual situations wouldn't be out of the question either. There would of course be roleplay between matches and of course player-vs-player combat.
Tentatively planning to allow rules in GURPS Martial Arts and Magic to be used as it is a fantasy setting. Requiring players to at least have GURPS Lite (though this is free from Steve Jackson Games) and thinking between 80-100 base points for starting PCs. Starting characters would not be able to have cinematic or supernatural type powers (except for magic or those a fantasy race gets) but could possibly acquire them through spending earned XP.
