                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Kung-Fu Master.  How original.  Not that it was his fault.

                                       Deimos

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SKYHAWK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MOON-EYE and was awarded 21 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SKYHAWK put down MOON-EYE, 
causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  Although KUNG-FU MASTER 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious DEIMOS.  
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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KOLACT these days is THE MOONDOGS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of VIKINGS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hagar Bluetooth -- Bad enough you have that off-color tooth, you didn't have to BITE
me with it! -- Moon-Eye

Good thing they didn't let the Convicted Assassin come onto the sands with his
poisoned daggers. -- Orbin Paes

The Mordant Deserter isn't very tough, is he? -- Lunelle Merrin

Since when am I a golem?  I've never been a golem before in my life, so why am I
starting NOW? -- Lia Hobern
P.S.  Ah, I see it now!  Jealousy is the key.  The Commission has noted that I'm
wildly charismatic, and someone is jealous, so they hired a magician to golem-ize me.
Not that it will stick, I bet.  Us highly charismatic people have a way of bouncing
back.
