                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well that was unexpected. Here I am at any rate. I want to say to the Dr Klord good 
fight. Sorry it ended in your death. Killing is not my style unless it's in a 
tournament. I hope you find your way back to Arvat via the dead tourney. I did want 
the throne though. Want to just get my invite and leave Arvat behind. Not sure who 
I'll fight next turn but good luck to you. Until then it's good to be The King!

                                          -- The King

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARVAT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DEVIL ADVOCATES was 
unseated this week as GASTROPUB moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon THE WALKING DEAD this time 
out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
ANGELS OF PAIN went 3-0-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to CON + INSULT 
for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  THE WEAPONSMASTER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LONELY TONIGHT and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STRAWMAN put down STEEL 
GARTEN, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, 
the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than 
Duelmaster THE KING himself.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week 
as EXTERMINATION boldly challenged THE KING in order to strive for the Duelmasters 
honors?  The city has turned out in honor of EXTERMINATION, for with its arena 
victory it may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe 
that over half of the old women in ARVAT seem to feel that they could fight better 
than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SECRET SQUIRRELS is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of DEVIL 
ADVOCATES last week.  Busy avoiding SECRET SQUIRRELS?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
LITTLE DRAGON has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  Look no 
more for HALO in the arena or on the streets of ARVAT.  His fate was sealed in the 
Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 5-10-1.  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 ARVAT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
