                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Khlahums Dwarf, or "Morvangor, not from Khalhums but somewhere farther
south," was a worthy opponent, and I salute him.  Despite knowing he would not be
allowed to take the title, he fought as though it mattered.  One can do no more.

                                        Joseph

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SNAPPING TURTLE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 
11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MORDANT DESERTER 
put down BRAVE 1, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  
Although M. CHARDINEE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious JOSEPH.  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     The girls are as pretty in JHELUM as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
