Hey all.
I'm totally new to JB. I've just installed it, and played a few rounds online and off-line. I love the idea of the game and really fancy making a map for this.
The only problem is that I'm so noob that I dont 'get' JB totally atm.

For starters, whats the whole philosophy behind arena battles? Do you have to have them? When do they occur? How to go about implementing an arena in a map?

Then some more questions to jails. Can you make some form of escape route from the jail? If so how would that work?

Well, part of it is a mapping question ...

Welcome.
For the basics of Jailbreak gameplay, you can look at the Jailbreak Manual (Jailbreak Manualhttp://www.planetjailbreak.com/manual/jb2004/).
For the bassics of Jailbreak mapping, you can take a look at the Jailbreak Developer Network (http://mychaeel.no-ip.com/jailbreak/).
You can also take a peak at Spoondog's Mapping for Jailbreak (http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/Mapping_For_Jailbreak) guidelines which gives you a basic idea about layouts and stuff.
