                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A classic match, was it not, Charismatic?  My thanks for the win, the political
points, the skills, and not killing me.

                                   Wooden Arrow

P.S.  11  10  10  13  15  8  17  SS vlow/mod lunge tactic.  Odd, that last, I have
never felt the least urge to lunge at an opponent.  Of course, I've always been
painfully mortal up to now.

P.P.S.  I'm highly charismatic myself, Charismatic.  Bet that's what attracted you to
me in the first place, since I'm not much of a horse person otherwise.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of MALCORN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GO AND GO caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested NYARLATHOTEP and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WHIRLAWAY put down 
BOXXER, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has WOODEN ARROW in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In MALCORN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  MALCORN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is MEAT MARKET, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of TRIPLE CROWN last week.  Busy avoiding MEAT MARKET?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  LOOKOUT take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in MALCORN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for PUTRID CORPSE in the arena or on 
the streets of MALCORN.  Its fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one 
at 7-9-0.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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

Go and Go -- If you want to protest the Commission's gross mis-identification of your
race, I'll be one of your witnesses.  NOBODY your height should be labeled a Shew. --
Greengrove

Wooden Arrow -- I have faced you 4 times already, and lost all 4 encounters.  I know
I shouldn't run this turn and let you waltz out of here, but I can't help myself.
Best of luck in ADM. -- your friend <not mine> Charismatic

Nyarlathotep -- With that record of yours, you've GOT to know I'm gunning for you. --
Go and Go

Dr. Seuss -- We just CAN'T have a new manager going 3-0, 100%.  Therefore, you're in
my sights and you best start using your avoids. -- Sultan, sand jockey

All -- Well, there.  That's enough personals for you slackheads <except Greewardens,
go figure>. -- Sultan

Lord Protector Wooden Arrow -- Congratulations on that, but lands?  No.  If you want
lands in the Malcorn area, you must either purchase them, inherit them, or earn them
by performing some signal service to the state, just like anybody else.  Surely this
isn't too much to ask? -- Arenamaster Landon
