'''''"[[Paranthelion|Paranthelion]], do you know who I am?"''''' she asked, her light taking the form of a sphinx as she spoke.
Evangelione was awarded the audience’s collection, a gold brick and the meagre purse from her vanquished opponent. Both heroes needed to be carried off the field of battle to have their wounds dressed by [[arena|arena]] doctors. I shook my head at the violence I had just witnessed, consoled by the knowledge that they had gained some experience that would help them on their quests and that the [[arena|arena]] hospital would take better care of them then [[Godville_(Town)|Godville]] General Hospital ever would. I was glad that Evangelione had won her first [[arena|arena]] battle, but I knew it wouldn’t be her last visit to the [[arena|arena]]. It was inevitable that one day she would be beaten, the laws of Random so often brought down the mighty, and I would see my Lady’s champion vanquished on the field. Maybe not the next fight, or the one after, but eventually every hero sees defeat.
 
==Guild==
 
In Godville, it doesn’t take long for new heroes to realize they need more than friends and drinking partners to succeed in their quests, they need the influence and aid of a [[Guilds|guild]]. Evangelione was no exception. At level 10 she had already started considering her [[Guilds|guild]] options. One night at a favourite tavern of hers, I saw her reading through the [[Guilds|guild]] pages of the Godville times.
 
 
'''''"Looking at [[Guilds|guilds?]]"''''' I asked her as I sat down at her table. I signaled the waitress to bring us some fresh drinks.
 
 
'''''"There’s so many to choose from, [[Paranthelion|Paranthelion]], I’ve been giving this whole [[Guilds|guild-thing]] some serious thought. I could use some advice because while like the badges of the [[Ankh-Morpork_City_Watch|Ankh-Morpork City Watch]], I also like to say [[Knights_who_say_Ni|"Ni! Ni!"]], and then there’s that little [[Guilds|guild]] on the edge of town with only 40 members that keeps sending me flyers..."'''''
 
 
'''''"[[Evangelione|Evangelione]], have you asked your Goddess for advice?"'''''
 
 
'''''"I could do the same thing I saw another hero do; blindfold myself in the main square while holding a pin and then walk towards the [[Guilds|guilds']] message board. Whatever [[Guilds|guild]] gets the pin, gets me as a new member!"'''''
 
 
'''''"And your Goddess said...?"'''''
 
 
'''''"Maybe I should pick one with a really great name, something inspiring with a little ‘strikes fear in the heart of monsters’ kind of ring to it."''''' she said, excitedly.
 
 
It was clear from the conversation that Evangelione was aware of [[Guilds|guilds]], but not yet ready for the responsibility of [[Guilds|guild]] membership and it was little wonder why [[Guilds|guilds]] had restricted membership to level 12 heroes. I briefly imagined a gaggle of level 9 heroes pledging to whichever [[Guilds|guild]] some authoritative tavern owner told them to join. I smiled to myself and then ordered another round of drinks. [[Arivelle|Arivelle]] would make her thoughts known on the matter in due time, I suspected, when Evangelione was ready.
 
 
Shortly after Evangelione's Level 12 party, I noticed the characteristic blue moonstone pendent hanging from Evangelione’s neck. Indeed, [[Arivelle|Arivelle]] had selected wisely, the [[Blue_Feather_Guild|Blue Feather Guild]] was well known in this town. Evangelione was not yet convinced.
 
 
'''''"I joined [[Blue_Feather_Guild|Blue Feather]] and sure I like the free equipment, doctors, coins and prestige that comes with it, but I feel a bit lost amongst all the members. The other day the guild rooms were so full I had to take my nap on the toilet. Lucky for me I found 960 coins, but that’s not the point. I think I might be better off in a smaller, more personal [[Guilds|guild]], right after I complete my current quest."'''''
 
 
'''''"Do you think your Goddess will let you?"'''''
 
 
'''''“She can’t watch me all the time!... She can’t, can she?”'''''
 
 
'''''“She probably can.”'''''
 
 
'''''“Oh well, can’t blame a hero for trying!”'''''
 
 
'''''“That, she definitely can do.”'''''
