I did. And even with your post. I feel that even mercenary fighters
should desire to be King.

Because it shows your superiority (sp). (I need to get a dictionary at
work atleast until I know how to spell every word I use. *grin*)

You mean being a Count or Duke wouldn't help make you be more recognized
as a threat? I can't see how it could possibly not help your possition.

I can see, as a mercenary, avoiding the run of the mill tourny, but
winning Crown should only help if you won.

This I concede to you. Fighting for the joy of fighting with nothing but
the joy of it in your heart would keep you from needing to prove you
were the best.
