                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Proof, if any were needed, that turquoise is lucky.  I salute you all, and to
all a good night.

                                    Bisbee Blue,
                            From the Lavender Pit to you

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  G-STRING caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VASQUEZ put down 
BITTERMAN, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and BISBEE BLUE has made 
the way for a new Duelmaster!  With BISBEE BLUE clearing the throne, BLUE MOON of 
NORTHER takes a proud seat as ZUKAL's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition 
points.  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 ZUKAL.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 ZUKAL.  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 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
