The Ancient City of Capua in Second Life

The ancient city of Capua, at southern of Rome, was a rich and prosperous town of Roman Empire. Situated in a fertile plain of Campania, Its luxury remained proverbial and it is especially spoken of as the home of gladiatorial combats. 

Now, you can visit the ancient Capua in Second Life. The new Roman roleplay Sim, owned by Sashah Bedrosian and Franck Gazov, is a very realistic and detailled reconstruction of this Roman city in the inworld. You can admire its magnificent temples, villas and public buildings, like the Colosseum.

Of course, you can find a ludus, a training school for gladiators. In fact, the first ludus was in Capua around 100 BCE. Its owner usually lived there and took care of it like a business more than a school. Gladiators were typically accommodated in cells, arranged in barrack formation around a central practice arena.

Don't miss this great opportunity to see how the ancient Romans lived. Also, an amazing choice to play like one of them in a roleplay. Visit the welcome center and get a copy of the Sim rules.

Enjoy the following pictures from Capua that I took this morning at down.
