Whew, that was close! I thought I might take the title on a loss to a standby, and I didn't want to do that. It would have been easy, sure, but think how it'd look. This arena doesn't have all that much to be proud of at the moment, so...I won. I don't think Gilbo Shortaxe (the Khalhums Dwarf) threw the fight, either. I really lit into him. Kerman Jones SPY REPORT Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT! Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari. My praise to MEDAL OF HONOR A3 for their 4-1-0 week this time out. Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice! BABY KARLIE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MORLIN POOLE and was awarded 20 points in recognition. In one of the week's more notable duels, ASH LEELA put down MITCHELL PAIGE, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process. Although VETERAN MERCENARY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious KERMAN JONES. No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids. Charmed weapons perhaps? Many and various are the arts of battle. In ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has long since passed from the language! Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below. MORLIN POOLE take warning! You have more than a few enemies in ZORPUNT. 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! If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times already in ZORPUNT. 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 DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KERMAN JONES 4745 10 5 0 92 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TERI LARK 4694 17 24 0 95 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TRAVIS T FLETE 4728 19 6 3 87 KRILL CAVALRY (403) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MIRESSEA POOLE 4744 13 5 1 50 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MANUEL PEREZ 4759 2 0 1 29 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME DA1 4758 2 0 0 20 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) BABY KARLIE 4750 1 0 0 20 MINGALOIDS (486) FRANK PEREGORY 4757 2 0 0 19 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) DA2 4756 1 1 0 16 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) ASH LEELA 4749 1 0 0 14 MINGALOIDS (486) MORLIN POOLE 4761 2 2 0 8 KRILL CAVALRY (403) MITCHELL PAIGE 4760 1 1 0 4 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) KYLEMEISTER 4746 0 1 0 3 MINGALOIDS (486) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

But with a name like that...I'm not so sure. -- Morlin Poole P.S. If you're half an elf, what's the other half, Shewish? I, Barkhotai, Guard and Captain of Guards, do here publicly state that I am not a member of the Unknown Cult, have never been a member of the Unknown Cult, and have no desire to be such. Yes, I worked with the Cult to determine a proper fate for hostile so-called fan who was injuring gladiators (both managed and standby) by pitching red-hot coins onto the sands during the fight, but that does NOT constitute any commitment to or sympathy for the cult as such. Simply, they also provide standbys and thus were among the injured parties, and they were the first to propose a suitable fate for the troublemaker. No one else had any good suggestions to offer, either. Embezzle his funds? Loan him money at injurious rates of interest? Please! Reward offered! For the name or clues to the identity of the person who let Dahlak Krag, the Captured Orc, out of the arena dungeon. Contact Arenamaster Kai. P.S. Do you know how hard it is to capture and hold an orc these days? We can't afford to lose ours. The Unknown Cult is proud to announce that a public ceremony will be held in the arena today after the fight. No membership in the cult will be assumed or implied by attendance at this ceremony. Come one, come all, see a contractor forced to eat ten tons of abyssal mud! LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS MEAN GENE was viciously butchered by BANDIT PRINCE in a 6 minute Dark Arena fight.
