                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The 4th time is apparently not the charm, either.  It seems we are doomed to
fight each other again and again.  It is very kind of you to treat my ailment with
lemon drops and orange candies, even as we prepare for battle each week.  I can only
imagine that the gods will reward such acts of kindness.

Scurvy Lady

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  ARISTOCLEA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested TACKLE BOX and was awarded 24 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ASPASIA put down LUSINTILLA 
OBAN, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Although DORA BELL 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SCURVY 
LADY.  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.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  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

Scurvy Lady -- It's lemon pie today at our place.  Good for what ails you, and just
plain good.  Drop by--we won't go so far as to say "duelmaster eats free," but at
least we'll give you a free sample. -- Dora Bell
P.S.  I don't see how Kennelworth stays in business with his "duelmaster drinks
free," but maybe a lot of people over there like to watch the duelmaster drink.
Strange, but werecats are strange.

Tackle Box -- It just doesn't work.  I've tried for DAYS to figure out a recipe for
candied fish, and it isn't working.  In fact, it's disgusting.  Even the mince-fish
pie is awful. -- Donnamira

Aristoclea -- For some reason, you inspired me to make sassafras mead.  Not bad,
although it should probably age for another week or two. -- Gaylene Vollas

Rosty Anchor -- They tell me iron in the diet is important, but we aren't cooking for
healthy diets here, we're making sweets.  Mostly, anyway.  For some reason, you've
inspired me to do ribbon candy, which is odd, because I'm not a great fan of ribbon
candy. -- Lusintilla Oban
P.S.  But maybe its time has come?

Ah, standbys!  Hezash the Mouth seems willing, even eager, to stuff the aforesaid
mouth with anything he can get his hands on, which may explain his convex silhouette
and his tendency to lose fights, yes? -- Givorsa Jimh

Scurvy Lady -- Kolaches filled with orange marmalade. -- Dora Bell
