                             Notes from the arena champ.

This is completely unfair!  What were you THINKING, Musgrave?  You were supposed to 
WIN and free me from any necessity of doing a column!  THIS wasn't supposed to happen.  
I'm not READY.  I know I said I would be, but I, um, I was mistaken.  I've been doing 
other things.  FUN things.  There are so many good excuses, er, reasons around for 
weeping, and I'm a PROFESSIONAL.

                                          -- The Weeper

P.S.  That should be enough, shouldn't it?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LIN TIRIAN games.  Former top team HOWLIN CASE was 
unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  DALADMAR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ARNELL NASTI and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, M. CHARDINEE put 
down ANONYMOUS, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has THE WEEPER in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LIN TIRIAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in LIN TIRIAN 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
