Opens to a warder training yard. The sound of fighting and weapons striking, and instructors calling out.

Instructor: Whatever comes, face it on your feet.

[unclear dialogue]

A trainee with a sword is bested by one with a quarterstaff. The instructor addresses the one bested.

Instructor: On your feet. Jearom Gaidin.
Trainee: Sir, yes. The greatest swordsman.
Instructor: Hmm. A man without history. Only legends pass through the ranks of the Warders. His prowess with a sword knew no equal. In battle, all who should cross him found themselves at the far end of his blade. Save one. Ten thousand victories, and a single loss. To a farmer with a wooden quarter staff. His sole defeat became a legacy. Never again underestimate your fellow man. Respect the wielder, not the weapon. Who is the greatest blademaster of all time?
