                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail warriors of Zuwayza!  This will be my last active turn here as your beloved
Duelmaster....  I'm off to Arvat to assist Trebonius the Magnificent and Lord Darius
as a mid-level supervisor for Caesar's massive country club construction project.
I'm laying down my sword in place of a whip....  At least until the next tourney.

Aurora, say what you will, my little friend.  However, you were defeated again,
whether I was avoiding you or not.  You should have challenged the Dark Arena and
tried for a kill.  That's what we Romans always do.  Shame upon Zuwayza you say?  I
don't see any Tournament Victor designations after your name on your business cards.
And where are your representatives in Primus and Free Blades?  Julius is the top
ranked warrior from this arena in Primus at 101-75-0 and one of only two warriors
from our fair city fighting there.  A Wall of Steel named Peace of Drunken Toad is
the other at 69-66-3.  Where are your teams, Aurora?

Blood Sports, looks like you and me again this turn.  I like fighting you.  We'll
take it easy on you as well since you are one of few defensives fighting here.  Eight
Lungers last turn and not one Aimed Blow?  We do, however, have a nice mix in the Top
Ten, so it is with a heavy heart that I depart for Arvat....

Gimme Some Sugar, that was a despicable down challenge on poor innocent Publilus last
turn.  Well, not really, as we have launched a few despicable down challenges of our
own here.  Alas, Pub is joining me in Arvat until the next tourney....  Oh yeah,
almost forgot, Venenso, it is safe to come back now, son.

Farewell!

Dardanius, Duelmaster of Zuwayza (and one hell of a nice guy!)
Ides of March (226)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUWAYZA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as IDES OF MARCH is pushed out 
of top team by TAHAHN HAH, who came from 3rd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
18K FEET fought LUSCIOUS and gained 20 points and contributed to THE SIERRAS' 3-1-0.  
LUSCIOUS has lost to 18K FEET, falling 14 points, while helping make WALI'S FINEST a 
3-2-0 turn.  This turn DARDANIUS TV challenged BLOOD SPORTS in what was ZUWAYZA's 
Title bout.  Defending his title for another turn, DARDANIUS kept THE MAGNIFICENT 
MAGS' warrior, BLOOD SPORTS, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Drunken Ox?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the TAHAHN HAH 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided TAHAHN HAH stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was IDES OF 
MARCH.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BLOOD SPORTS from THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  Well now, what do 
you expect when someone like TEERAPONG from TAHAHN HAH challenges down 26 points to 
fight EKA THANATOS of TEAM CHAOS?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not 
cowards looking for easy wins.  TEERAPONG bested EKA THANATOS, is nothing sacred?  
Tsk, tsk, tsk.  TIBERIUS, does your manager know you're challenging down 26 points to 
fight TYCHO THERON from TEAM CHAOS?  We're not surprised to hear that TIBERIUS 
overcame TYCHO THERON, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why IDES OF MARCH 
made such a challenge.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

too gentle for this life.  You are not suited to... Blood Sports

Ong-Bak -- Policy is policy, and we have always tried to keep this publication, the

freak.  I grant that it's PROBABLY not your fault, but still, I cannot accept your
advertisement. -- Nifty Nickel

Jakrapong -- That was NOT my hand in your pocket, it was someone else entirely.
There's been an invisible thief at work in Zuwayza, you know, and he's been
PERSECUTING me by timing his depradations to match my movements.  It's infamous! --
Matarmal the Waif, cruelly convicted thief

Hot Rod II -- A debt is a debt, and you cannot discharge it by defeating me in the
arena.  I will expect repayment by the end of the month, or your carriage is mine. --
Lek Tormuz, Merchant and Moneylender

Flavius Valerius -- There was no need to be vicious.  I have not targeted you.  If I
had, of course, I couldn't tell you about it, but I can make an honest denial.
Neither you nor any associated with you are my target. -- Rondol of Osksi, Have Blade
