                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  Can you believe this?  I am duelmaster once again here in Lyratilan!  The
top looks pretty weak here, but I expect to have someone give me a good fight next
turn.  Thom will have to wait a few until I, hopefully, leave this arena as a Lord
Protector!
     Until Next time,
          Loial

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BLOODY MARY caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested THE KILL RIFF and was awarded 
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLOODY MARY put 
down THE KILL RIFF, causing him to lose 21 points of recognition in the process.  
Although NOBLE ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious LOIAL.  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 LYRATILAN these days is SAY MY NAME.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of ARCANE BOOKSHELF last week.  Busy avoiding SAY MY NAME?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Phantoms -- Well fought, young Dwarf! -- Aan'allein

Arrrgggghhh!  Another dead Aimed Blow!  Jain will be missed. -- Stillgard

Jorja -- Sorry about Leron.  Aan'allein is sometimes overly aggressive. -- Stillgard

Padre -- Good that you've enjoyed it.  Strategies... eh.  Good luck with that.  It's
been so long since I tinkered a strategy that I find myself staring blankly at a
fight and wondering what changes I should make!  And I sort of almost half-promised
to do a little tinkering in 103.  Me and my big mouth!  Still, the sun shines (I'm
personally solar-powered, a sunflower, if you will), the grass is green, the ROOF
DOES NOT LEAK!  Life is good.  The trees have so many leaves on 'em that I can barely
see the water tower.  And the thrice-accursed trumpet vine is trying to crawl in my
window.  But I'll get it yet!  The guys who put on the new roof cut back the
volunteer shrubbery along that side of the house, so I can GET that trumpet vine, and
I WILL.  I will RIP it, shrieking, away from its anchorage and feed it to the
GROUNDHOG.  But even so, that's the small stuff.  Life IS good. -- Jorja

An oh-fer, and the new guy hasn't shown up yet.  Good thing Jorja's feeling mellow.
-- Nellie Quarrels
