I am currently creating a mod for the open source video game "Nexuiz" (uses an updated quake 3 engine), which will take place in the battle room in Ender's Game. The game is very flexible, so I think it will turn out great. However, I was wondering if anyone here knows the supposed dimentions of the battle room? I dont want to make it too small. Also, I was wondering how many players were in each army? This info would be very helpful. I dont know if it is in the book... its been a long time since I read it ;)

I believe that you, Mr. Card, may be the only writer today who can do justice to the story of Athaliah (mother of Ahaziah) and Joash (her grandson (KJV:Kings 2, Ch. 11); done once in the correct timeframe as Biblical fiction, and once as a sword-and-sorcery fantasy (from the viewpoint of one of those who hid and helped raise the boy).
