After looking at the article about the Rithmere Games once more, I wondered what really happened to the Games after the belt was restored and Deltora was liberated? I mean the Games as organized by the Shadow Lord to lure strong figthers. I read somewhere that the Games were abolished but I could not find a source reflecting this exact information. Fardeep did get the Champion Inn back but what exactly happened to the Games seems unknown. What do you guys think?
I believe the games existed before the Shadow Lord took over so maybe they just reverted back to there pre-Shadow Lord state. Which I assume would be rather a test of skills rather than fighting abilities. The Shadow Lord simply made it about fighting so he could 'recruit' fighters for the Shadow Arena. With Fardeep back in control of the Champion Inn, I doubt he would have liked the games to be all about fighting.
Yes the games existed before the Shadow Lord took over. Fardeep even states this in the Valley of the Lost on page 166. I just wondered what happened to the Games after the Shadow Lord was defeated. I assume that the games have been reverted to their original form (before the Shadow Lord) since Fardeep once again owns the Champion Inn.,,
I hope Emily Rodda makes another series centered directly on Deltora during Lief's reign. It would answer so many of our questions. Thanks for letting me know what Fardeep said, I haven't read the original series for a couple of years so I couldn't remember.
