THE LAST ARENA
Beneath a dying sun lies a forgotten planet, long
since abandoned by it's inhabitants. The land lies
empty and silent and a visitor here will have the
rustling of the wind as his only companion.
The legends speak of the Vadrigar - mighty beings
from times long past and forgotten. For many aeons
they ruled the galaxy, all lesser races trembling
before their might and power. Hungry for blood
and carnage they created the Arena Eternal to amuse
themselves and held tournaments among the greatest
warriors from all around the galaxy. Thousands upon
thousands were killed and reborn in the endless
carnage in countless blood soaked arenas among the
But now, the sounds of battle have long since
silenced, and what became of the mighty Vadrigar
no one knows. The remnants of their once great
empire are scattered, and the only thing remaining
are legends of times past and a few scattered,
This is such a remnant, an ancient reminder of the
bloodlust of a forgotten race. This battleground is
old, older than the Arena Eternal itself - from
a time even before the Vadrigar's rise to power.
Perhaps it was here that their bloodlust was first
awakened, long before they had even left the
planet from where they came? Perhaps this aging
planet, soon to be engulfed by the white-hot dying
convulsions of it's own sun was the birthplace of
this once so powerful race?
No one knows, and even the legends will soon fade,
and the younger peoples of the galaxy will know
nothing of what has happened here. All that
remains are dust and shadows. Dust and shadows of
But some evenings, in the hour just as the sun
is about to set, if you listen really carefully
perhaps you can still hear the sounds of battle
in the distance, and if you look really closely,
you might perhaps still see the ghosts of
warriors past, continuing their battle - continuing
to fight for all eternity in the Arena Eternal.
