City Profile, Rome Part Three - Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising - MMORPG.com

This week Perpetual Entertainment has sent along the final installment of their profile on the great city of Rome in the upcoming MMORPG, Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising.

Roma is the center of the civilized world, the greatest metropolis known to mankind, and the seat of the eminent Republic that is spreading law and order throughout the land. Its teeming streets, diverse multitudes, inspiring architecture, and stunning public artworks make it not only the Republic’s capital but also quite possibly its most impressive achievement.

Because it’s so big, we’re covering the city of Roma in Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising™ (G&H) in three installments. With this third and final chapter, we’ll be looking at the historical buildings featured in Roma, as well as the civic center of the city and several other assorted neighborhoods and landmarks that make up the glorious Republican capitol.

Perhaps the two most recognizable buildings in the entire city are the Circus Maximus and the Colosseum. Located in the Vallis Murcia district of Roma, the Circus Maximus is an enormous, oval-shaped structure that is used for chariot races. The Colosseum, which is the site of the legendary Gladiatorial bouts so beloved by the Roman populace, has an entire district named after it. These are perhaps two of the most famous structures in the entire Republic, not to mention feats of architecture and engineering unrivaled anywhere else in the world.
