Spartacus: War of the Damned takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.
Crassus discovers a not-so-noble Roman is taking credit for crushing the rebel forces, while Spartacus attempts to secure a bargaining chip to use against his conquerors.
