                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What was I supposed to do?  Liitle hairy guy wouldn't stop coming after me.
They shouldn't let people's pets fight in the arena.  Guess the strat change for him
didn't work as well as he thought.
     Thought for sure it was going to be Bacardi up here but unfortunately he ran
into an immortal on his way to the Isle.  Not sure if I'll be up here next turn but
I'll enjoy it while I can.  Ugly Eddie this challenge is on the house.

Crown Royal

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CULTS-R-US was unseated 
this week as BLACKED OUT ON... moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-3-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week BARJIN'S BEST went 2-3-0 to move up 4 in the rankings. 
Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which WILD OATS managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  BIG DUMMY caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HAVOKK and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LI KO THE CLUMSY put 
down HURRICANE, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster CROWN ROYAL TV challenged UGLY 
EDDIE last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for nothing has 
CROWN ROYAL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in RIZTAB seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  BLACKED OUT ON... is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of CHAOS AVENGERS last week.  Busy avoiding BLACKED OUT ON...?  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after ABYSSINIAN ASSASSIN.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  MANGY POLECAT has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
Walk proud, warriors of STEEL THUNDER!  By striking down ARISTOCRAT VODKA you have 
avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in RIZTAB.  Fate is a 
fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RIZTAB.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

Jasper -- And this fight makes ten.  Would a thought I would a strolled past this
First hurdle fight, but while I've had some drag-out doozies, I ain't won too many.
-- Mangy Polecat

Tyger -- Well challenged.  No I'm not sick, the green pall of my countenance?  Not
Unlike the fresh un-froze...course'n they're blue.  Anyway, it runs in the family. --
Missy Mossy

Hume -- The Big Guy's right.  I do have what Jondeaux considers ideal ripper numbers.
Losses?  Well if it ain't me...uh, I don't think I want to pursue this line of
Inquiry any further.  Least-ways not until after I graduate. (knock knock) --

Yoda Man -- A bo-nannn-za!  Who knew?  There's obviously more to you than meets the
eye...not to say you're not easy on the eyes, cause you're not, it's just a testament
to the unknown talents we wallflowers can have. -- Dexter

Epicurious -- Hmmm.  Random matchup?  I suppose I should take that as a compliment.

Marvanella -- Now that's more like it! -- Rej the Blade

Rej -- Shut your trap! -- Havokk

Hurricane -- Get away from me!  You're too darned prophetic.  Thunder, lightning, and
sheets and pillowcases of rain!  Good thing we're on high ground, but even so, it's
supposed to be day-LIGHT now, and it could just as easily be dusk.  You can't
persuade me that the farmers asked for THIS. -- Tala Gog

Ironstorm -- All this rain, you're going to rust.  You know that, don't you?  Best to
keep a servant busy oiling you constantly. -- Winter Shadows
P.S.  It isn't snow... yet, but it'll do.

Wacky Waco Wonk -- You were laughing, I could tell.  Those choking sounds, and the
way you turned pink and looked like a stuffed fish.  But it's okay, you earned the
laugh.  Go for it. -- Tariliss

Aristocrat Rum -- This was the celebrated "Rum Punch," right?  I didn't like it. --
Sweet Betsey

Havokk -- You want to rest on your laurels (I wouldn't, prickly things, laurels),
fine, but better wait till after the fight next time.  Or you'll come up against
someone like me who wants to get ON with stuff. -- Marvanella

Rej the Blade -- What's the good of insurance?  If I die, it won't bring me back. --
Marvanella

A 4-1-2 with the two kills coming on others people's challenges.  I'll take that any
day. -- Otis
