South central in Beth Bow is a great octagonal structure called Kane Coliseum It was constructed shortly after the Park Of Hope was started as a means to help provide jobs, hope, and a means to provide the citizens with entertainment and show case their heros. There was also the underlying goal of having strategically constructed wards and reinforce security on sections of the area which had shown to be vulnerable during the Darkest Night
After the Naga Nori War and the attack of The Mage Hunters upon Storm Hold, Ramsalon has moved the Tournament of Champions to Kane Coliseum, making it the premiere event of the city.
It is 30 meters in height, and each outer wall is 250 meters wide. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and three fountains. There are entrances on every face of the building, but the south entrance is the largest and considered the main entrance. Just outside the main entrance is a magnificent bronze statue of Kane Foraiya, the legendary emperor, and two golden lions.
The entrance at north face of the coliseum is lined with a row of trees and the path that merges right into the Park of Hope.
The entrance at the north west face of the coliseum has undergone some renovation for in the after math of the Naga Nori War, now leading to the newly Victory Portal Courtyard where the Victory Portal was moved to a in order to grant more public access. Smaller samples of the statues and artwork within the coliseum can be found along with many small cart vendors and merchants dot the entrance and courtyard hawking their goods to the passing crowd of portal travelers.
Once inside one can find an almost labyrinth style of hallways lined statues and other various artwork depictions of heroes, warriors and terrible beasts. Though all hallways eventually leads the visitors to the seats and common ways that surround the great arena at the heart of the coliseum. There are small stages strategically placed within the seating to provide places for performers to accompany any events going on in the arena, making use of both magic and acoustical engineering to ensure any entertainment on those stages could be heard.
The seats are divided up into three sections:
- The golden zone, which are considered premium seating and make up most of the very best seats within the arena. They are a bit roomier then the other seats, some even having tables, and also have roof coverings to help protect against the run and weather and provide more personal comforts.
- The silver zone, which make up most of the seats that surrounds great part of the near arena and stages. Some of the seats have small sun shades that provide some cover and comfort but not as well as the roofs in the golden zone.
- The bronze zone, that is the top part, very far from the arena and are divided from the other zones by common ways where various vendors of all kinds can be found during the event. On occasion some street performers may be dotted along the vendors as well.
A barrier is set up around the arena so stray weapons and magic will not go through into the crowd, though people can still be thrown from the arena.
Special Tournament Arena
A special section separated from the main arena, specifically for special tournament events like the Tournament of Gala. Entry is not permitted except by proper personnel or combatants for the Tournament. This section of arena has extra enchantments and mechanization that can be activated as needed to enforce additional rules for these special tournaments.
