                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You know that feeling when you drink way to much of the good stuff and the
caffeine high just keeps you going.  Well that is where I am now. 
     You know that feeling when your body suddenly runs out of caffeine and you drop
to the ground and reality.  Well, that is where I'm heading next.

                                      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 HOOKED ON COFFEE was 
unseated this week as THE MIDDLE WAY 5 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  GIANT KILLER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KILLBY MARCH and was awarded 22 
points in recognition.  The city has turned out in honor of NEWLIN PARRIT, for with 
his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KALTOS these days is ON THE FARM.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding ON THE FARM.  Indeed it was HOOKED 
ON COFFEE.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after SAIRY WELLS.  Watch your back!  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of HORSE who this week posted a challenge to a warrior 
a full 14 points below in the rankings.  I thought HORSE showed great skill and 
promise when it was beat by SAIRY WELLS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for ASHLEY in the arena or on the 
streets of KALTOS.  Hers fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
16-9-0.  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as CASSEY'S CREW.  Witness, 
last turn they sent ASHLEY, a 16-9-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  Dark alleys may 
hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel. 
Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KALTOS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

job. -- Newlin Parrit
