                             Notes from the arena champ.

(Originally sent to DM7 by mistake--Consortium's very old Personal Assistant typo)

same time.  YAY!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of WILLAF!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon PANDORA'S CARDS 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 
round.  56TH AND WABASHA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested GOLDEN GIRL and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, EVEBRINGER put down HORI BULL, causing him to lose 13 
points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SLIDE TO 
HELL, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the 
city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city WILLAF.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS is feared.  This much I can say.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS last week.  Busy avoiding BLOOD ON THE TRACKS?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  DA2 has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
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!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

fighting.  Very impressive.  I have no doubt you will earn your weight in gold. --
Well Don

Hori Bull -- Maybe your name is an indication of your learning ability. -- Well Don,
who's not too certain recognition plays much of a roll in teaching...

Sent in ads last turn but they must have been misplaced while everyone was busy with
the tourney.  Maybe they will show this time.  If not, if anyone is curious about
Well Don, just ask and I'll be more than happy to share his stats and such. --

Judgement -- If I was going to be swayed by good judgment, I wouldn't be a gladiator
at all.  Eh. -- Hori Bull
P.S.  Besides, a cute little thing like you shouldn't be dueling anyway.
