                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It seemed an odd thing to bring a piece of rope into the arena, but it actually
worked.  Amazing.  Thank you, Horse.  All the alfalfa you can eat.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  Former top team THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was 
unseated this week as SHADY LADIES moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-2 record for the round.  MOODY JUDY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KILLBY MARCH and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOODY JUDY put down 
KILLBY MARCH, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BUZZ KILL, 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!   
     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.  KINGS BLADES 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 SHADY LADIES last week.  Busy avoiding KINGS BLADES?  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  LANDSLIDE 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!  My sources at HISTORICAL KOLACT stable claim 
they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise of 
LANDSLIDE.  Beware SKINNY MINNIE!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ashley -- Really didn't think I'd get the job done.  Took another jolt of the good
stuff and I there I was.  What a bummer. -- Buzz Kill

Isobel -- Be careful what you wish for.  You could end up with a Buzz cut. -- Kill

Newlin Parrit -- You ride well.  I didn't think you were going to make it (and would
have preferred that), but you did. -- Horse

I don't like Kung-Fu Masters.  They're sneaky.  They start talking to you about the
sound of one hand clapping, and spinning wheels turning, and while you're trying to
figure out what they mean by that, they clobber you. -- Sairy Wells

Y The Bold -- Y not? -- Isobel Kline

"Dangerous Criminal" is darned right. -- Killby March

Landslide -- You buried me!  Alive, at least, and for that I thank you. -- Oswald
