                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Why, thank you, Sir Cumference!  This title rounds out my dueling experience
nicely.  In fact, I feel like keeping it.

                                    Lirvel Moorn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  CIRIC caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CYNICA and was awarded 24 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NESTOR ORDH put down SKYHAWK, 
causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Although SIR CUMFERENCE 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious LIRVEL 
MOORN.  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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KOLACT these days is QUBIT.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of VIKINGS last week.  Busy avoiding QUBIT?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KOLACT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Ciric -- I've been shown up, and out. -- Dawn

Chagon -- I've seen your like around here before, and there's a name for what you
are...and you're a good one too. (if such a thing is possible) -- Buffalo Bob

Skyhawk -- I would'a thought you'd a been leaning a bit more towards the generous
side of life.  Good work though, consistent too. -- Bayfront Betty

Hotemder -- Not the send-off to my new career as earlier envisioned. -- Galopede

I am sure that M. Chardinee does his best, he's got enough experience!  But...I don't
know, somehow that win just left me feeling flat. -- Persea Quell

And people say I'm cynical, compared to the Venomous Concubine, I'm a cooing dove, a
veritable eager puppy, of optimism and pollyana expectations. -- Cynica

Killimanjaro -- You know, I didn't need that.  The way you advanced on me, looming
like some darned mountain, even when I *knew* you were a sawed-off runt.  And then
you whammied me and fell on me like a ton of rocks.  Ouch. -- Nestor Ordh

Sir Tifiable -- (sigh)  Aren't we all. -- Icarus

Buffalo Bob -- Yeah, but the Gals aren't so bad. -- Icarus

Dawn -- "Mind"?  I have one of those?  This is news to me. -- Nestor Ordh
