                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I think the Kung-Fu Master should be sent back to school.  He may know it all
about Kung-Fu, but he's got a lot to learn about fighting in the arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  JOHN TYLER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JAD LADRUE and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  Not for nothing has FOLIE HANNA in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  Would 
you believe that over half of the old women in KALTOS seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after HOFFA. 
Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems 
that FREDERICK DOUGLASS posted a challenge against the more highly recognized BELISS 
DON.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand FREDERICK DOUGLASS bested BELISS 
DON.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Many townsmen have begin to remark over 
the fact that after one more round of duels CRAYOLA KILLERS' Bloodfeud against DERBIE 
FOYLE will have expired.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the 
arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in KALTOS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
