     "But, Leora!  If you think Scootie Puff is so cute, WHY can there be nothing
between you?"  Gidget Imer stared at her teammate in confusion.  "That's just DUMB."
     "Because he's a dwarf," Leora said.  "Humans and dwarves don't--  Well, they
shouldn't--  It would just be WRONG.  Besides, he's just a kid, his beard is barely
an inch long!  That's got to mean a really YOUNG dwarf."  She sighed.  "It curls
delightfully, too.  He really is just the cutest little thing!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GIDGET IMER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested RED MERCURY and was awarded 45 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BALISONG put down 
MAURINA OBEL, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has SCOOTIE PUFF JR 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?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KALTOS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  KALTOS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is 011510A, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of TECHNOLOGY last week.  Busy avoiding 011510A?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen men cut down in 
their prime.  This week TECHNOLOGY must mourn the loss of 14-6-1 RED MERCURY to THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5.  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?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Scootie Puff Jr -- I know there can never be anything between us, but I must admit
that you're just the cutest little thing! -- Leora Noeval, notably popular but not
stuck-up about it

Red Mercury -- Your golemness was just... well, I'm glad that fight is over, is all.
-- Gidget Imer

Wilov Vaugn -- It's always a pleasure to meet someone new and win.  Way to go! --
Maurina Obel
P.S.  But we could meet outside the arena and both of us win, could we not?

Hextor -- Bah, in a general sense.  I suppose you're nice enough when you're out of
that armor, but I'm put off by women who are so much taller than I am, so you'll have
to look elsewhere. -- Quent Sorn
P.S.  Nothing personal.

I defeated the Osksi Noble!  Is this cool, or what? -- Just Losin
P.S.  I didn't know that dwarves were noble in Osksi.  That must make for a weird
town.
