The Fantasy Art of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Imperial City Arena District

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a first-person perspective fantasy computer role-playing game set in a vast 3D world with an open-ended storyline that allows the player the freedom to pursue the main quest, side quests, or simply explore the world. The game is set in a different geographic location from the previous in the series (Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind) and in general the architecture and wildlife is more medieval and real-world. The fantasy game art is vastly improved, however, and at the time of its release wowed the world with its realism and attention to physics in its interactivity. This Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion fantasy art / game art page has images from a graphically modified game. For an overview of the major changes, click here. The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages has detailed information on the Arena District.

In Oblivion, it is possible to sign up with the Arena as a gladiator and fight your way up the ranks to Champion and then Grand Champion. The slideshow below shows the various combatants (or opponent teams) on your way up.

The pictures below show combatants modified with Francesco's Levelled Arena, which generally presents more challenging opponents than normal Oblivion, which approximately scales opponents to your character's abilities. The trio of Argonians in one of the fights, for example, are all armed with some of the game's higher-quality weapons. In the original version, they fight unarmed (against which there is an exploit to reduce their effectiveness -- by throwing down weak weapons, which they will pick up and fight with less effectively than with their superior unarmed combat skills).

There is a great amount of same-ness to the look of arena opponents because all fighters must wear a standard uniform (an "arena raiment"). In regular Oblivion, the two styles look like but one is classed as "light armour" while the other is classed as "heavy armour" Your colour is blue while the opponent's is supposed to be yellow but in-game looks like some kind of swampy blue-green.

The female combatants in the pictures below use arena raiments from Colourwheels Sexy Stock Armour and Clothing Replacer. This mod gives them a more properly yellow / gold colour, but also shows a lot more skin--the "light armour" raiment is reduced to little more than a skimpy bikini--whereas in the game, the arena raiment in fact affords rather excellent protection.
