                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose you've got one of those "complexes," Tertius?  A six-foot dwarf, you'd
almost be bound to have.  But that isn't enough to get you the title.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was 
unseated this week as LONG SWORD CLUB moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week CASSEY'S CREW went 2-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  JUST LOSIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested GRRR and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, JUST LOSIN put down GRRR, causing it to lose 17 points of 
recognition in the process.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week 
as MECHANON boldly challenged MAURINA OBEL in order to strive for the Duelmasters 
honors?  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.  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 KALTOS.  KALTOS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is LONG SWORD CLUB, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of TECHNOLOGY are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
PRIMUS.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week QUENT SORN, at 8-11-0, departed KALTOS 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 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

Primus -- I totally don't like you, but that isn't a surprise.  Another one of those
hairy, over-grown dwarfs.  Where does your manager find you guys?  Thrown out of
Khalhums? -- Gidget Imer

Quartus -- Well, at least you aren't a dwarf.  An idiot, probably, but not a dwarf.
-- Just Losin
P.S.  I count all gladiators as idiots to some degree.

Tik-Tok -- AAAAAH!  That twitching back and forth, that TICKING, I can't stand it.
It makes my teeth stand on end. -- Quent Sorn

Where does the Userous Merchant get off, claimin I owe him money?  I never bought
anything from him, and I never borrowed money from him, and this is coming totally
