                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings Solven, a silence falls over our fair city this time of year.  The 
Tourney is long over by now as most of you know.  Yet our arena, being as far away as 
it is, has not received word about the official results.  There is a tension in the 
air so thick you can cut it with a dagger.  Can you feel it Solven?  Ahh, the 
anticipation...  Not knowing if your guildmates are coming home to bask in the glory 
of triumphant victory or inside of a pine box.  A seasoned veteran knows this feeling 
well.  Managers and Gladiators alike handle it differently, though.  Some go deep into 
their cups.  Others brood in silence.  And then there's always that one guy that just 
doesn't know when to shut his yapper. Of course, there are unofficial results...  When 
you see the Gladiatorial Commission remove a name from the arena roster, that's 
usually a dead indicator of someone's demise.  And then finally, the caravans begin to 
slowly return with the green recruits straggling not far behind, instead of your 
studly arena all stars.  In which case, you begin to hear the lamented cries of 
managers...  "Who's this pud?"  "Where's my stud?"  "Where's our warrior?"  "What?"  
"Why?  Whyyyyyy?!?"  It's a vicious cycle...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  WRAITH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  Not for nothing has DWIGHT THE WIGHT in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SOLVEN.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
