Talcama!

     If my math is correct, I should get the invite after another turn or five up
here.  My math was never as good as my fighting.  Sure, my record is impressive, but
it's not so hard when you back into the throne by beating someone with nearly twenty
fights less than I had.  Of course, I don't know about hidden fights.  According to
Delion, the upcoming tournament is more important than fighting here.  I don't know
that I agree, but I would like to fight in one someday.  Preferably a rookies
tourney, as my ratings aren't good enough to get me anything beyond initiates.
     A little booze and cavorting done this woman good.  Meshach and Gary, you'll
have to wine and dine me if you hope to recline me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TALCAMA games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week SHEPHERDS went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  BARNEY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested HADES and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CHATROOMMATE put down HELLFIRE, causing her to lose 8 
points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior 
on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster FIZZ AND FURS 
herself.  Not for nothing has FIZZ AND FURS in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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 TALCAMA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  TALCAMA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is OF WOLF AND MAN 9, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of CENTER FOR OLDS last week.  Busy avoiding OF WOLF AND MAN 9?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in TALCAMA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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
