The Auditorium's lights dim and the crowd settles in to an excited hush. A disembodied voice echoes through the darkness...

"Welcome friends to fightdrome!

My friends, tonight you will experience an event unlike any other.

Tonight, you will witness two fearsome warriors battling before your very eyes!

Only one can stand victor... but which will it be?!"

At either end of the arena, spotlights flare suddenly, highlighting the frames of two eager looking fighters.

The crowd gasps and then erupts into whooping and hollering of delight.

In Altered Carbon: Fightdrome, Players take on the role of two competitors fighting it out to determine which of them is superior. Players agree beforehand if they will play a single bout where they each try to be the last player holding cards, or several bouts where the first player to reach an agreed number of fame points is declared the winner.
