History of the Arena

It all began in the desert civilization known as Lanturn Dust City. Being a place that had to rely on trading with other countries in order to survive, the city always struggled to keep itself and its citizens alive. The city began to pool ideas from its own people to help keep trade going. One of the more popular ideas was a form of entertainment to really grab attention. Of those ideas came the one to create the most grueling, torturous fighting arena imaginable. After careful consideration, the city went through with the idea and the tournament was constructed within five years.

Upon opening the arena, the city's popularity immediately exploded. Everyone rushed into the city to prove that they were the best. It was such a success that the city had managed to trade enough to sustain itself for several years ahead. The arena still runs today and is considered the ultimate test of endurance, strength, and strategy. Enter it if you have the resolution, but be aware that only the strongest shall prevail. Prepare to get blood on your hands in the Land of Glowing Sand.

There are rumors, however, that the arena was built to serve another purpose. Rumors speak of a being of sand that dwells under the arena floor, watching every match and only interfering when the rules are violated. They say that the being feeds off of the blood spilled during the matches, growing stronger with every drop. Very few fighters have ever claimed to encounter such a being, and there are no recordings of the fights, leaving little evidence.

But what if those rumors happen to be correct? What is this being's end goal, and did the city know of its existence when they built the Bloodied Hands Arena? 

Notes About the Arena

The arena is in the shape of a large square that runs about half the size of a football field. The arena floor is covered in sand that runs several dozen meters below the surface, and on the bottom is steel flooring. The walls are also made of the same steel material, reinforced to withstand explosions.
