                             Notes from the arena champ.

Three DM Titles?  Three more than I ever could have hoped for, I think.  I am not much 
of a specimen at 12(+1)-9(+1)-14-15-18(+1)-4-15 LU.  I was hosed in Initiative and a 
simple Normal Endurance/Good Damage at birth.  I think I like either the short spear 
(10-88-3) or the long sword (7-24-4) but my faves no longer matter, because of this 
very moment I am retired.

May the force be with you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARDIVENT games.  CANTEX caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HERETIC put down U. 
OF E., causing it to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, EARL has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail LINCOLN HILLS, 
Duelmaster of ARDIVENT!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARDIVENT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  WE GOT GAME 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 
FANDILS last week.  Busy avoiding WE GOT GAME?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
