                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Got you that time, In the Bushes!  I bet you didn't even realize that there was
a GPS tracking spot on that paper.

                                    Lulu Orlene

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SOLVEN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 15 was unseated 
this week as ARE YOU ? moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-1-0 
record for the round.  My praise to MEDAL OF HONOR 104 for their 3-1-0 week this time 
out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  DA1 caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE 
and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  Not for nothing has LULU ORLENE in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers 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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SOLVEN.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in SOLVEN these 
days is MAULS LOCAL 457.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding MAULS LOCAL 457.  Indeed it was B.B. NEWSBOY.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that OUT OF REACH posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized LOVE OR CONFUSION.  The results, you 
ask?  Well, the firebrand OUT OF REACH beat LOVE OR CONFUSION.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen men cut down in 
their prime.  This week B.B. NEWSBOY must mourn the loss of 6-4-0 IN THE BUSHES to 
MIDDLE WAY 15.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
