                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I offered the Khalhums Dwarf a croisant and he ran.  Again.  I get the idea he
thought it was some sort of boomerang.  If he weren't a dwarf and thus odd, it would
be insulting.  I make GOOD croisants.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CALEAM games.  BAKED FRATSFA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ELENORE ROOSEVELT and was awarded 
13 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ALFREDA CREME put 
down CONDI RICE, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  
Although VIRGINAL CONCUBINE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious PASCELLA.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CALEAM.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in CALEAM these 
days is FIRST LADIES.  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 ZOMBIE 
SQUAD last week.  Busy avoiding FIRST LADIES?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after OVAELLA JUNE.  
Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  CONDI RICE must hold silent, for this week she was 
humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by ALFREDA CREME of GOLDEN CANYON. 
Hail ALFREDA CREME for thy victory!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins. 
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CALEAM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

P.S.  I'm not actually DEAD, you know.  Just too handicapped to return to the arena.
I can still cook an enchilada that will fry your innards.

mustard that does the trick.  Dijon, of course. -- Ovaella June

Condi Rice -- Proof, if I needed it, which I did NOT, that rice is not good for
people. -- Ghost of Beatrina

it and that we will see you there!
