                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I wouldn't have called that... 'vicious'.  Would you, Mechanon?  I really
didn't, don't have anything against you, including the challenge.  Naturally, you
challenged me.  What else could you do?  Come back one more time, and win or lose you
may get the title.
     Perhaps oddly, I find I am pretty much using my favorites!  You'd think my
record would be better, then, wouldn't you?  Such is life 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.  ASHLEY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GRRR and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ASHLEY put down GRRR, causing 
it to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail PRIMUS, Duelmaster of KALTOS!  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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 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
