WARNING! SPOILERS! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY THE STORY FROM WITHIN THE GAME!
There is still no word about Jake. I've gone in disguise to his school. No one has seen him. I've been a nervous wreck. My mother, for all her misgivings, is sympathetic at least. I snuck by the house to see if I could find any sign of Jake. The birthday card that I left for him was untouched. However I did find a letter that was not there when I fled the house. I opened the envelope. The letter was from Fitch. He wrote, "I did everything I could to help you and save PlayerName. I assembled a crew of long-trusted friends and allies for you. But someone within our grouped betrayed us and informed The Emperor of our plans. Now everyone in our group is dead. That is...everyone except for me and you. I know I'm not the informer, so that narrows it down. You have blood on your hands." This is madness! The only thing I ever wanted was you in my arms! I would never jeopardize that!
But I digress. You have enough problems in the arena. You dont need to worry about my problems. At least I can still help you. Be very careful of enemies with a <Chance to Burn>. Their attacks are imbued with flame and may burn you. Some enemies will have a <Chance to Defend>. These enemies will absorb some damage from your attacks if they successfully defend against them.
I wish everything was back to the way it was,
