                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahhhhhh, Zuwayza!
     The Fresh air!  The Blood stained sands!  A bit of good reading material!  The
title!  Oh, How I have missed you!  Oh, How I have missed life!
     Yes, I, Grizz Grimhult, your Duelmaster, am recently returned from the dark
lands of the dead.  The champions tournament this fall provided my path.  Although
Nomad had previously had high hopes for me, this was my first TV.  But it came at a
good time.  And now, I am back.
     A shot at challengers at the FTF (proxied, with only one strat) might determine
if the boss keeps me around for more challenger tournaments, or simply pushes me to
graduation.  We shall see.  But for now, I am happy to breath the fresh air, claim
the title, and read an occasional issue of Travel Weekly.  For the living can travel-
and there are places I wish to see.
     I am a big fan of second chances.
          Grizz Grimhult
               Duelmaster of Zuwayza

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, ESCAPE put down DANDRUFF, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has GRIZZ GRIMHULT in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ZUWAYZA seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUWAYZA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after HAMMER REVIEW.  Watch your 
back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
CLICQUOT CHAMPAGNE posted a challenge against the more highly recognized HAMMER 
REVIEW.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CLICQUOT CHAMPAGNE subdued HAMMER 
REVIEW.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  DA 22 has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his 
recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Some say a warrior is 
judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a 
sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZUWAYZA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Jada -- I did look.  And I liked what I saw.  I'd love to see it again. -- Flamberge

Lonely Hearts -- Lonely?  You?  Hard to believe.  But I suppose getting Buzzed does
take the shine off a bit.  Me?  No.  I need no such Mag. -- Buzz Grimhult

And last week's four-one is followed this week by an oh-fer.  They tell me this is
normal for the Mags, but it should NOT be.  If they were truly MAGNIFICENT Mags,
they'd win more fights.  A little sharp investigative work here, a bit libel, subtly
disguised, over there, interviews with rivals, showering publicity on faults, it
could be DONE, you know. -- Hammer Review
