                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh where have you been, Billy Boy, Billy Boy? Oh where have you been, charming 
Billy?
     Why, I have been right here in Ardivent, calmly sitting on my throne, enjoying 
the perks of DMship. You know, free candy; dinner delivered on a TV tray in front of 
the TV watching the MMA fights; plenty of Tab and Diet Mountain Dew; hot black coffee 
from Starbucks as early as I want it; lotsa video games for my work out sessions; and 
the wonderful companionship of Zelda, the pretty golden tabby kitty.      
     Life is sweet. 

                                          -- Billy Boy, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 
record which WE GOT GAME managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  VIDMAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 12 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KOMODO 9 put down CHS BULLDOG, 
causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
BILLY BOY 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARDIVENT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  ARDIVENT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is YOU DON'T SAY!, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of FANDILS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ARDIVENT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
