                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hot diggity damn, here I am still top dog of this fine arena.  Well Flavius, have to
admit I really wasn't looking forward to meeting up with you on the sands.  Too bad
you tripped and fell, of course I took full advantage of the situation and kept
swinging 'til you said enough.  I will be going into retirement although I am proud
of two things, one, being a two time Duelmaster, and getting twenty wins, a goal I
wasn't sure I would achieve.  Good luck to all!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  Former top team THE SIERRAS was 
unseated this week as THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  TIPPY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested RED LAKE and was awarded 18 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TIPPY put down RED LAKE, 
causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Although WHITE CHOCOATE 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious MURPHY.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ZUWAYZA these days is WALI'S FINEST.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of TAHAHN HAH are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after BLOOD SPORTS.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that HIDEKI HAO posted a challenge against 
the more highly recognized BLOOD SPORTS.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
HIDEKI HAO was defeated by BLOOD SPORTS.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline 
of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ZUWAYZA 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 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

Isis -- I'm jealous of the skill learns you're getting in both our bouts.  Perhaps
losing isn't so bad after all. -- Solstice

Flavius -- You were the one I was not looking forward to meeting, lo and behold I
meet you on the sands, even better yet I beat you.  Too bad you tripped and fell
down, I thank the DM Gods for that!  One more turn and I'm out, decided to run a
weird strat, we'll see what happens. -- Murphy

Tiberius -- Just a matter of time before you got that first loss, glad I could be of
service. -- Red Lake

Luscious -- Oh yes you were, so cuddly. Sorry about beating you down, I'll try and be
a little kinder next time around. -- 18K

All -- Time for the retirement home, been fun while it lasted, here's what I'm made
of 12-10-11-17-10-13-11.  Mode all the way, had a great career for an average
warrior, thanks again for all the fun! -- Murphy

Tiberious -- Make that your first loss, I'm the one that is lost.  I'm sure you'll
get better with age, I just got a feelin'. -- Red Lake

Hideki Hao -- Your heart is in the right place (I checked), but your hands need work
if you are to engage in... Blood Sports

Matarse Fury -- There was no need to shred the whole stack of flyers!  I would have
just GIVEN you one if you'd asked.  Honest! -- Nifty Nickel

Tippy -- I don't believe you're ready for Instrument Flying Conditions yet.  But keep
practicing. -- Flight Journal

Caramel -- (moaning)  Sooooo tasty. -- Hot Rod
P.S.  But it sticks to the seat and makes a mess and draws FLIES.

Jewel -- I am sure you are past price, but you still cannot be the Man of the Week.
You are much too clearly a woman. -- Times

Fregadara -- Well, most of them are dead.  But now you are, too, so I will arrange
for one of my deceased teammates to show you around. -- Times

Our congratulations to Murphy. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
