Welcome to the Games of Saberhaven!
We're in our fourth year of fights and our third generation of DMs
and players. For those
not familiar with the Games of Saberhaven, this is where the toughest
beings from every plane struggle to capture the title Grand Champion.
This is an ongoing play by email (PBeM) Arena-style AD&D game
that will accept anyone as a player! With our open submission policy,
you can submit a character to compete in the Arena and then run
fights against other PCs or NPCs.
Before you submit a character,
please read over the
Then read through the AD&D
Rules of Engagement
before your first fight. The DMs have to okay your character before
you can start.
As one player puts it, "Create the toughest character you can think
of. All the character ideas that you have had over the years, but discarded or toned down because it was too powerful
(i.e. a munchkin) are perfect here."
You have the option to challenge a specific opponent (see competitors) or add your name to
the pool and have fights assigned to you. To become ranked, characters have to work thier way up. When they win,
they gain "points" which can be spent for magic items, xp or gold.
Between fights, characters can monitor currently running fights. Feel free
to wander through town, visit a tavern or merchant, or even join a contingency on your quest to become the Grand
We currently have five DMs running fights and a character pool of over
150! A listserv is set up for weekly news updates and a bulletin board is in place for in-character communications.
Contact the Games head DM Jared with more questions.
Enjoy the city...and good luck. You'll need it.
