                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, looks like I spoked the Wheel of Time.  Does this mean that Time stops?
Could be awkward.  No night or day, no seasons, no nothing!  Sounds boring.  Maybe
I'd better let it spin again.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHELUM games.  Former top team TL;DR was unseated this 
week as DOGS OF WAR moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  CUSSTER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested CRIME AND PUNISHMENT and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put down DA 
VINCI CODE, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of WHEEL OF TIME, for with hers arena victory she may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JHELUM.   
     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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JHELUM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

Warburton -- Good News!  You won't lose to me this week.  You'll have to lose to
somebody else, 'cause I'm frozen for the tourney! -- Bestla

Bestla -- I have a fragile ego, and that a girl would WANT to slap me on the wrist
just crushes me. -- Warburton

The Userous Merchant isn't going to play his "you OWE me" tricks on ME.  I'm onto
that shi... stuff. -- Cusster

Osksi Burger -- Oh, cheese louise!  Were there ONIONS on that thing?  I can't stand
onions, they make me sick. -- Blind Betsy

Bestla -- I long for your company, and you keep slapping me down.  I am shattered and
crushed beyond your imagination!  Have mercy, cruel woman! -- Warburton
P.S.  I feel sure that you didn't really need another attack skill.  You could give
it to me, because I *do* need it.

I'm a CAT?  NOOOO!  How can this be? -- Dawe Gonnit
