                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Woohoo, I finally became the Duel Master!!  I hope to stay Duel Master for a
while.  It is quite an honor to be the Duel Master.

     Daikkan walks in the throne room and says, "You impressed me with your win over
Duskblood Pudding.  He is a great warrior.  Looks like you may be fighting Wren next
round."  Yeah that was a good night and I will train hard for my fight against Wren,
but for now let's head to the local inn and get some drinks on me!

Sabbath,
Duel Master of Malcorn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  DUSKBLOOD PUDDING caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested OGRE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
WREN, Duelmaster of MALCORN!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city MALCORN.  MALCORN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is MARKS PARTY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding MARKS PARTY.  Indeed it was CRUCIAL TAUNT.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week OGRE, at 8-8-1, departed 
MALCORN forever.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in MALCORN.  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 
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

laugh. -- Axel

Wren -- LOL  I didn't know you were a bird. -- Ogre
