The 7th edition of the series of peeks at NWN 2 adventure pack Mysteries of Westgate brings us a look at the gladiatorial enterprise the Quivering Thumb.
The newest addition to Westgate's parade of novelties is a gladiatorial enterprise named the Quivering Thumb, which fled from the collapse of Unther to the city whose rulers would pay the best for bloody circuses. The new sandpit arena is popular with nobility, merchants, commoners, and even with slaves, because the Thumb promises freedom and a thousand gold pieces to any slave who can survive a year in the pit.
Of greatest interest to those who pride themselves on their fighting ability are the two most prestigious events run in the arena: the Individual and Group competitions. Both can offer princely rewards to those chosen few with the prowess to rise up and climb the rankings.
