                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Kandaresron Varn, I give my fans to you!  You've been a great sport.  My decise
fave learn made our later bouts all go in my favor, but we had a nice series.

                    Eat your veggies, everyone!

-- Arugula

notes from Assur:
Arugula graduates 13(2)-11(1)-4-16-20-13-10 PL, good/norm with skills at
24/11/23/23/17/25.  Faves came out MO/MO SS.  Could be worse, could be better.  The
design obviously sacrificed a lot of skills, looking towards the future where one day
he'll bust those stat trains out in a what will hopefully be a day of glory.  I was
silly to not experiment with the OE more earlier on, but I got in a rut with strategy
and was satisfied with Arugula's 50% performance.  A tough warrior to run, with the
learns / skill levels where they were, but it worked out just fine.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of OSKSI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team OUR HIGHEST HONOR was 
unseated this week as FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  MARISONDRA KENDRA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GRUNT 10 and was awarded 24 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MARISONDRA KENDRA 
put down GRUNT 10, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  As 
is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster ARUGULA himself.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on HIGH ELF as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of 
reigning Duelmaster ARUGULA.  Not for nothing has ARUGULA 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?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SPEAKEASY is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks more 
than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last week 
avoiding SPEAKEASY.  Indeed it was AESIR.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of DUDE #1 who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below 
in the rankings.  I thought DUDE #1 showed great skill and promise when he beat 
MELONDARION NORIS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
ARUGULA has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  I must report 
the passing of KIERNAN VARO, veteran of many duels.  3-8-0 final record His was not 
illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  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
