                             Notes from the arena champ.

Cliffhome!
     I am proud to take the mantle of Duelmaster of our city.  It is a title that
cost me a lot of blood, and a TON of scars from Rhah's blade... thankfully my manager
Destitute Noble knows a good armorer who specializes in scale... it sure came in
handy today.
     I think our stay in the city is short-lived at this point... Noble has packed up
the guildhouse, and all of my guildmates have prepared to depart the city for Noble's
main training facility to prepare for the next tournament.  He hasn't said anything
to me yet so I've continued my training and studies.  Cyndaquil and I are to fight
this next cycle and then I'm blank--so stay tuned.  As we were sparring he quipped
that I was to be left behind to tend the guildhouse.  Though talented, and extremely
nimble, he was not prepared for the right jab to the chin and ensuing scimitar shot.
For now he'll hold his tongue... but not for long as his training continues to excel.
     We bid welcome to Classics 1.0 and their sole warrior Amaretto Sour.  Hopefully
your next tourney will produce better results and subsequent glory for our arena.  I
believe I went 1-3 in my last tourney, too--so I know how ya feel.  No challenges or
avoids this cycle.  Will I get Rhah again, or Taragon Tsor?  Or maybe Rake will
fight?  Oh please...don't let Rake fight...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  FOREVER PORCH caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KLYTIE 
put down PROF QUATERMASS, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although TARAGON TSOR made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious BLAZIKEN.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CLIFFHOME.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
