                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Duelmaster?  I have finally gotten here merely by waiting, andwaiting, and 
waiting.  Certainly not be beating everyone and rising to the throne.  Oh, no!  I have 
LOST seventeen matches, some to NPC's.  Is THAT a Duelmaster?
     I have lost to Ruy Lopez (3), Winehouse, Heads Man, Baerus, Dee Daa, Tynerae, 
Mattheas, Feheadrae(2), Hereford Jones(2), Brooke Jones, Rocksock Jones(2), Lorens Klu 
.... what a mess!  Me, Duelmaster?  But here I am with my 9 political points, wanting 
eight more.
     Come on, NPC's!  Help me out!  I will accept help from anyone else, too.

                                          -- Earl, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARDIVENT games.  HENCHMAN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested POLITE BEGGAR and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KHALHUMS DWARF put 
down GRANDMA CLARA, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has EARL 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ARDIVENT these days is WE GOT GAME.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  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!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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!  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
