                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So!  John Huston couldn't stay away from me!  But I can handle him, even if he
IS out to get me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRANSEL games.  PRIEST 2 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DAVID FINCHER and was awarded 10 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MASTER RHOLENN put 
down AMY NESIA, causing her to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has NOT-A-NUT JONES in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
