GM Dictionary: Sports #21

Here’s the deal. I am not super into sports and generally know only tangential information about them. That being said various sports and sporting events have been huge for humans for…well…ever. So this month I am going to begin expanding my, and your, dictionaries with a whole bunch of sport-related words. Most of these will probably be at least a little familiar to even the most unaware layman, but I want to create a bit of a foundation from which we could do a couple more of these. Because hells there are a lot of sports.



Naumachia: This latin word stems from the staging of naval battles in Ancient Rome where a building or basin was filled with water and two ships were pitted against one another.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
