                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Shierrah!  We're all over the front page!  Talk about "calling attention to
ourselves," this takes the gilded coconut.
     I find the simple IDEA that Dullens has a Drunken Guardsman offensive.  I would
have killed him if the arenamaster, a noted wet blanket, hadn't stepped in first.

                                       Rainbird

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-2 record 
which MANIACS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  DOG EARS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested HACKER and was awarded 9 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, DOG EARS put down HACKER, causing him to lose 6 points of 
recognition in the process.  Although PIMPED OUT BROOM made a valiant effort, it did 
not suffice to topple the reign of victorious RAINBIRD.  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in DULLENS seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DULLENS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Balance of Earth -- You must have been way out of balance to go down so easily.  Not
that I mind!  Light work makes a light heart, or something. -- Blackhorn

Magical Shortcut -- You're a troublemaker through and through.  The very CONCEPT of
you is a troublemaker. -- Biting Fly

Pimped Out Broom -- You do this to mock me, don't you?  But I'll get you sooner or
later, I'll pull your straws out with red-hot pincers! -- Anvil

Ghost of Mauler -- Little did either of us know what was in store.  I regret your
death. -- Dog Ears
P.S.  Not least because I liked having someone I could defeat.
