Lore for Friday - From Pelinore - The Gladiator's Rest is a bar where gladiators who survive the arena gather for a drink after fights and to mix with their fans. The manager is the former owner, who had both his property and his wife stolen from him by the current owner. The bar is located in The Arena District of The City League.
Pelinore is a game setting that came out of TSR’s UK office and was detailed in a monthly magazine over the course of a year or two. The link is to a site called the Bell of Lost Souls where they discuss the history of this word and its publication information from the mid 1980s. Interesting stuff, and definitely useful for mining for your homebrew campaigns.
