    In the year 3235, the inhabitants of Earth set out into the dark reaches of space, looking for new planets to settle on. While the planet Tyrus was very rich in almost everything one could want in terms of minerals, ores, metals, and abundant plant life and bodies of water, it was also a planet that would see an insane explosion of inhabitants life population growth, in only a few decades.


    With this growth came the upbringing of the Population Control Squad, or PCS, an organization with the task of controlling population on newfound planets, to minimize the use of life-sustaining materials on said planets. What once was a public execution by gun squads on the oldest or most useless of the work force soon turned into something more gruesome and dark. Eventually everything turned into fun and sport for the Tyrus PCS, with a large Colosseum being constructed, and most of the planets population being selected at random to fight to the death. According to the PCS, a war with some unknown lifeforms was going on elsewhere, and able-bodied soldiers were needed, but to the inhabitants of Tyrus, it looked like death for sport. A heinous game of kill or be killed, for someone's amusement.


    The battles would range anywhere from one on one, to six per team, much like a game. The year is now 3241, and the battles are still going on, with only a fraction of the population that Tyrus once had. A few small groups have banded together in secret, to find out anything they can about the truth of The Gladius Project, and with any luck, bring down the PCS. Will the hero's find what they need before it's too late, or will the world of Tyrus fall to the hands of a corrupt false authority?

    I'd love it if lots of people would take interest in this, and maybe even offer extra ideas as the story progresses. I have a pretty good idea of where/how I want this to progress, but it's nice to have extra ideas every so often. So without wasting anymore time, here's the CS. I'd like at least 4-6 for sure players with CS's before creating the IC and starting. And if you've read this far, one more thing. There will be character death somewhere along the line. And as always, no overpowered characters.
