                             Notes from the arena champ.

Alas, it is a day of mixed blessings for our guild.  Though I obtain the
duelmastership, a good friend of mine lays to rest.  I saw her like a little sister,
and now Chauncy has taken her away from us, after she had been able to beat him the
last two consecutive fights.  This time, he got the first blow in, and it was all he
needed to slay her...as she was not very sturdy of frame.  The scimitar blow she took
was one too great for her, and now she is gone.  Fine, we will never forget you!!

I appreciate all of your kind words towards me--but I'm a little too choked up to
continue...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of WILLAF!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team NOBLE ON FIRE was unseated 
this week as GOLDEN GLADIATORS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week POWER LEGION went 4-1-1 to move up 6 in the rankings.  
INDUCTANCE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully 
bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, JOLT put down ANIS, causing her to lose 14 points of 
recognition in the process.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week 
as AMYTHEST boldly challenged AXE EM BOUT ME! in order to strive for the Duelmasters 
honors?  Not for nothing has AXE EM BOUT ME! 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 WILLAF "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in WILLAF these days is GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of ROSE NOBLES are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations GOLDEN DOME, 
for thy revenge upon BEAUFORT, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  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 WILLAF.  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 
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
