                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello and Farewell!  It is a bittersweet day for me.  I'm leaving for the Isle
and immortality, yet I will miss this place.  X town is nice and I have grown fond of
it.  I may stay on this island rather than relocating to another.  I cannot fight in
the arena here any longer, but Darque doesn't appear to have any long term plans for
me on the Isle either.  My twin sister Sapphira is living near the Home Guard arena
(she graduated from Stormcrowe).  Perhaps I can go stay with her for a bit.  Yes, a
little bit of travel sounds like the best idea.
     For the interested, I am 9(2)-9-12-17-17-11-11.  I am +4 INI, -1 DEF, and +4 DEC
which I was quite happy about and so was Darque.  The Commission says that I like a
VH/VL fighting rhythm, the SC (yes!), and that I like to learn DEF skills (yuck!).
     I've killed a few on the sands.  May their memories and ghosts remain here when
I leave.
     Your Duelmistress,
          Lady Protector Malice

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
XOCHITHLAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SALOME TORENE win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, XOCHITHLAN may be getting bland, as MALICE stays top 
dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  
You want to know what's new, don't you, XOCHITHLAN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Salome Torene -- I thought our bout a few turns back was flukish at best.  I haven't
improved much by way of skills, but I still pack a pretty mean punch and wanted to
try my luck. -- Mastema

Ulrik Venn -- I am sure we can go many more minutes than our previous bouts.  Though
I am convinced the longer the fight last, the smaller my chances of victory. --
Sovereign

Horvanth Irnde -- So who did you anger at the Commission's match office.  You were
the lowest ranked Champion and yet you got pitted against me in random draw.  No.
Nothing fishy about that at all. -- Lord Protector Malice

Bettina Chim -- Thanks for the rating.  I really haven't been learning that skill
very well, which is pretty bad considering my fighting style. -- Black Guard

Our congratulations to Malice, and we hope you won't take it wrong when we say we're
glad to see you go. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

For the rest, an oh-fer turn.  Not something we care to chat about. -- those who walk
