To reflect the skills and prowess of the gladiators, they will accumulate rewards as they fight matches. Rewards are given as Glory Points to the Ludus and individual gladiators. They are accumulated in the following manner:

Reward Value
 Reward Trigger
 Winning Ludus gains a glory point to the main glory pool.
 Winning Faction gladiator who is standing at the end of game AND has at least scored 1 hit upon and enemy gains a personal glory point.
 "Boo" Factor - If a gladiator of the winning faction survives the match and has NOT scored a hit on an enemy, they are a disgrace to the Ludus and fall out of favor with the crowd.


Redeeming Rewards

Glory points given to to the Ludus Faction Main Pool may be used on any gladiator in a future match.

Gladiator glory points may be redeemed by the specific gladiator who earned it during a future match.

Redeemed points are spent and decrease the number of earned glory points available to the ludus/gladiator. They are to be recorded on the log sheet as spent and will be updated on the leader board.

What does a redeemed glory point do? They work like regular favor that is earned during the game. Essentially, each glory point is worth an extra die roll as per the favor rules of Arena Rex. 

A Ludus may only redeem up to 3 of its Glory Pool per match.

Each Gladiator may redeem up to 3 of its Glory Pool per match.


Calculating Ranks

The following formula is used to calculate the ranking of a Ludus

Rank Ratio = (Wins/(Loses+1)) +(Total Matches/10)

Notice that participants that play more matches will gain a boost to their ranking. This helps reward participation in the campaign.
