                             Notes from the arena champ.

     They tell me it's rude to say this, Anzac, but I just can't resist:  I moped the
floor with you!  Not that I care so much about the floor.  As long as there isn't any
gravel or sharp spikes on it, what's a little dust?

                                       Floormat

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TOBIR games.  ANZAC caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PITCH and was awarded 10 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ANZAC put down PITCH, causing 
him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Although TYNE made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious FLOORMAT.  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.   
     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

Tyne -- Part of a fork, right.  If you'd maybe had the whole fork, well, maybe it
would've made a difference.  Or, you know, maybe not.  Sometimes it can be really
hard to keep a good dog down, unless he's had obedience training. -- Pitch

Penrich -- That'll teach you to disrespect a good dog!  And I'm as good as it gets.
Maybe not as big and hairy as the Floormat, but I'm smarter and faster. -- Yellow Dog

I don't like these Shiftyeyed Volunteer guys.  They look suspicious and they act
suspicious and they SMELL suspicious.  So I bite them when I get the chance. --
Buster

Buster's got the right idea about these Volunteers.  They're up to something and they
can't be trusted. -- Brown Bear

Floormat -- It is hard to imagine you as a Lord Protector, though I feel sure you can
defend a doorway by tripping anyone who comes through it.  Still, the question

arises, are we to reward this?  I don't see why.  I will, however, undertake to
ensure that someone comes along and sweeps your floor at least once a week. --

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
