Sword duels have always been an integral part of fantasy and medieval history. For my fantasy series, I am envisioning my main character engaging in a fierce and brutal duel to the death with his greatest enemy. While their armies would be battling all around them, these two will focus on one another until one of them is dead. The victor will repurpose his foe’s possessions and take a piece of their corpse as a trophy. This duel will depict combat at its most savage as both combatants become drunk on bloodlust and adrenaline.
