                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is incredible!  I have actually PAID OFF my Credit Card!  Time to
celebrate--drinks are on me.

                                    Pendru Rost

P.S.  I'll put 'em on my card....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MOSQUITO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SONNY and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOSQUITO put down SONNY, 
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 
PENDRU ROST himself.  Not for nothing has PENDRU ROST in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  011510A is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of BLOOD SUCKERS last week.  Busy avoiding 011510A?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  SCOOTIE PUFF JR must hold silent, for this week he 
was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by GIDGET IMER of THE MIDDLE 
WAY 5.  Hail GIDGET IMER for thy victory!  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
