                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You are something of a pig, Inked, but I don't suppose you can help it.  At
least the title gives me some influence to get a scrub-person in here to clean the
ink off my stairs!  Can't have that kind of messiness.

                                   Golden Stairs

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  LADYBUG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CULT MEMBER and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL 
put down BLACKOAK, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  The 
city has turned out in honor of LUCK DEVIL, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In MALCORN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  GREENWARDENS is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding GREENWARDENS.  Indeed it was THE DEVIL'S OWN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in MALCORN as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

Oh, cheese louise with avocados and ham!  The rest of our fights are against
standbys, and we went three-one.  How can somebody LOSE to the Mordant Deserter? --
Blackoak for the Greenwardens

Blackoak -- I feel a deep sympathy for him.  After all, he got AWAY from Mordant, and
now no one is letting him live it down. -- Ladybug
