                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Listen, Balisong, I didn't ask for this, didn't want it, and now I don't know
what to DO with it.  Oh, sure, I saw my duty clear--give you the first loss--and I
did it, but I guess I just didn't think it through to the point of, "and then be
duelmaster."  Bummer.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon ZOMBIE SQUAD 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 0-3-0 
round.  PRIMUS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested GIDGET IMER and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, LANDSLIDE put down WATSON, causing him to lose 9 points of 
recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has MAURINA OBEL in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KALTOS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of ZOMBIE SQUAD are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  GIDGET IMER take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in KALTOS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
