Today I found a sweet shortsword, that deserved the recognition of an artifact. The Shortsword of Destruction +5 (5D6+3).
Unfortunately, the sword was lost in a freak accident involving a rust beast and three ochre jellies.
We'll always remember you, Shortsword of Destruction. You will not be forgotten.
Now I'm stuck with that stupid artifact I got from becoming the arena champion. (Was I supposed to be able to beat all 20 fights at level ten?)
