The Gladius

The Gladius


The Gladius is a Tier 3 Strength based, One-Handed Sword Often only seen in Acts 3 & 4. While it's damage may be a bit low compared to other choices, the Gladius offers multiple other benefits. The +5 Speed boost it provides can help square away slower characters such as the Blacksmith and Woodcutter. It's primary ability however, is that it provides "Entertain".

Entertain allows you to generate gold randomly when ending your turn within 1 hex range of a town or market. While this can be greatly beneficial, the sword is often found when gold generation is no longer required.

It's worth noting that this sword comes with a Disarm ability, as well as an Armor Piercing attack.

The Gladius seems to be a nod to a very popular film Starring Russell Crowe "Gladiator", 2000. In Particular, a single line in the movie is often recalled upon seeing the weapon . "Are you not entertained?!"
