                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Thewe was Bwuce Wee, and I bawked at him and that wasn't enough so I bit him.
That was enough.  He should wash oftenew.  But it's okay, I'm a dog, and I undewstand
that a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TOBIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GINKOR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested M. CHARDINEE and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LADY MUTT put down 
GEORGE FOREMUN, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BWUCE REE, Duelmaster of 
TOBIR!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TOBIR.  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

George Foremun -- How very odd.  I was aiming for your legs, and with your height,
you really had to WORK at it to parry with your face.  I suppose it's just the
ongoing strangeness of gladiation, hmm? -- Echanosarah
P.S.  Remember, sometimes the best mun for the job is a womun.

Ho!  The Civilized Criminal thought he could PUT SOMETHING OVER ON ME.  Well, fat
chance.  I'm a dog, dammit.  You can't fool a DOG, you know.  I could TELL what kind
of rotten creep he was. -- Ginkor

The Cheerful Fan was an offense against all right-thinking gladiators.  Who would be
so crass, so low class, as to come into the arena--against a dog!--whistling?  He'll
be laughing out of the other side of his mouth now. -- Lady Mutt

The Delarquan Sailor tried to hit me with a fish.  I'm not getting this.  Fish?
Nobody said anything about fish in the armory.  Teeth, yes.  Fish, no. -- Whole Mutt
P.S.  Do you have any idea how disturbing to the tongue a raw fish is, flapping in
your mouth and scritching with its scales?  It's disgusting.

Dacio Torranz, Guardsman of Tobir -- Ah, yes.  No doubt. -- Echanosarah

Art Folle Dodger -- That just SHOWS. -- Whole Mutt

Grandmaster Sleeth -- Well, of course, if it's a GOOD bone.  Maybe even if it isn't.
-- Lady Mutt
P.S.  I'm a dog.  It's what I do.

Ed. -- Ah, well, that explains my confusion.  I'm refined as white sugar, I am. --
Percy Stonebender, Hkalhums Dwarf

     Did you come from a sugar mine? -- Ed.

Tea -- What!?!  You don't have green tea?  How plebian of you. -- Potter, Noble
Assassin

Ginkor -- Don't bark at me, you mutt! -- Art Folle Dodger, Civilized Bender of the
Rules

Lady Mutt -- Hey!  What'd I do?  Down, dammit! -- Timmins, Cheerful Fan

Whole Mutt -- I'm a cat man, myself. -- Arsulis, Delarquan Sailor

Mun Over Board -- There was no need for you to drag me after you. -- Curshif Ty,
Shiftyeyed Volunteer

Shamuu -- And YOU!  Monster! -- Curshif Ty, Shiftyeyed Volunteer

Minute Mun -- But not, apparently, a TWO minute mun. -- Tomath Woodman, Convincian
Hero
