                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am the quiet type, so expect any column I write to be short.  Really short.  I
am pleased to be here and am really unworthy of both my 14-3-1 record and the DM
Title.  I hope to last for a few more fights and win and retire quickly.  I want to
find a nice little coral snake or maybe even a pit viper and settle down to retire
and make snakes.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARUAK CITY!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ANIMAL FARM was 
unseated this week as COLORIFIC moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  My praise to BULLDOGS for their 4-0-0 week this time 
out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  PURPLE PASSION 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested IRVIN 
FLETE and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, PURPLE PIG put down TOM SAWYER, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition 
in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
DRAYTON FLASHSTONE, Duelmaster of ARUAK 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 ARUAK CITY these days is FURRY FURY.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of BULLDOGS are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after TOM SAWYER.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     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
