In the highest quality battle so far Fistandantilus was able to hold off
Zenichiro in a continuous melee to keep hold of the sands and thus progress
to the next round of the Ordination. Zenichiro, bad luck; you will have
one final chance to contend in the forthcoming emerald quest.
Fistandantilus, you have brought great honour on your profession and
your city. You have been duly promoted in my Order for your calm,
extremely competent defence - particularly after having twice to reclaim
the sands from Zenichiro's possession.
This battle, people of Avalon, is a paradigm and its competitors and
high standards should be noted by all those who aspire to one day compete
themselves for the greatest of prizes.
Written by my hand on the 10th of Midwinter, in the year 1199.
