1.make a few folks in the stands shouting insults/praise at combatants.

2. Make a cliky that allows one to go thru a sequence of random mobs based on level...spawn a number and type for players to fight with either a monetary or item reward at end.(like winning the tournament )

I think that's a great idea to have the place populated, conducting fights. Regularly-scheduled fights at certain times of the day, like nighttime (seems appropriate for the desert after all), with torches lit and people getting drunk, eh. But there's the issue of clearing the place when PCs want the arena.

I'd think that maybe the quartermaster/fightmaster inside the building could have a convo like:

1) I want to see a fight, when's the next one? (for one to be spawned to happen for you to see),
2) I want to fight one of the/your champions in the arena, can you arrange that? (for a spawn to happen without an opponent, for you to be its opponent),
3) We want to have a fight in the arena, when will it be cleared? (for the arena to cleared for PCs to have it all to themselves).

With a prize of a bit of gold (or something) for the winner of choices 1 or 2.

In a previous server, there was also a pvp arena for this type of action in-game.
There was also an automatic respawn for the loser to a nearby section

Could a loser being sent there on losing be booed by the crowd on their asppearance?
Similar to the populace saying "ooh look its Raiden" when you run past Smile

Would be a cool effect Laughing

I gotta agree, that would be cool, the ability to fight in the arena - if your pc is more of a gladiator type, plays right in!

I think that it would be neat not only for the PC's ability to rouse up an opponent spawn, which would certainly be very neat, but also to have the place populated like there's actually a populace there using it. Since this is not a server where the PCs fight each other that much. Otherwise it looks abandoned-- nothing to see here, move on.

A good suggestion. I believe this would be covered by the item on The Amethyst Dragon's public to-do list in the "recent and upcoming changes" forum, where he lists not only fleshing out many empty areas, but also improved immersion scripting.

Would be great to see some automated scripting done in the arena.

When I would do DM run gladiator events, one of the biggest hassles was populating mobs. If a mob could be automatically populated, that would reduce the DM technical wizardry a great bit... and just adding in one or two "bosses" to the mobs would make an automated spawn more interresting for DM run events.
