                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, didn't think Axel was going to get a title shot but he did.  Glad to be
Duel Master, though.  :)  Just hope I can keep it for more than one turn.
     Varick, glad to have you back in the arena.  You have some good warriors.
Looking forward to battling you in the arena.  Good luck to everyone and may the best
warrior win!!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  Former top team CRUCIAL TAUNT was 
unseated this week as TERMINUS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  KILLER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested HAVOC and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, KILLER put down HAVOC, causing him to lose 
13 points of recognition in the process.  Although QUASIL made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious AXEL.  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!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in MALCORN these days is CRUCIAL TAUNT.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of TERMINUS last week.  Busy avoiding CRUCIAL TAUNT?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after WREN.  
Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  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

I've got a lot of work to do to get ready for the October mail-in.  It's nice to see
all you parry-types in the upper ranks! -- Duskblood Pudding

Sabbath -- Maybe you should be doing more cardio on that seventh day? -- Quasil

Axel -- That was probably the worst beating I've ever taken.  I'm embarrassed. --
Varick

<probably something missing, and it's hal, not you>  foes swing all sorts of
implements of death at me and between those sordid spectacles.  Even Taedium, except
he's hard to understand.  Let's just say on a scale of 3 to 21, his intelligence
would be a 3.  I'm not sure why anyone would use a scale of 3 to 21, <probably more
missing>
