                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hey, I made it!  Scruffy wasn't sure I was DM material after losing two title
fights in a row, but here I am.  Sadly, I'm going to rest a few turns before I fight
again.  Something about a "last chance" to prove my tournament worthiness?
     I'll leave with some personal parting words:
     Hope:  You were a worth opponent.  Best of luck on the Isle.
     Calypso:  I know you're anxious to have a shot at the throne.  Don't mess it up!
     Cardow Hunters:  I feel awful about killing Windflower.  Totally accidental.
     Owsly:  Great team spotlight last turn.  Keep it up!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LAPUR games.  JAYLA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested STORMRUNNER and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PERILOUS QUINN put 
down SERENA, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, DEADMAU5 has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of CALYPSO, for with hers arena victory 
she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     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 LAPUR these days is BLACK SAMURAI.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of CLAN CROW 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 ENIGMA.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week STORMRUNNER, at 1-9-0, departed LAPUR 
forever.  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 LAPUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
