                             Notes from the arena champ.

Glorious Chimlevtal!

     It is with pride that I sit upon this honored throne of the arena here in
Chimlevtal!  As a member of The Council of Lords, I am expected to reside here for at
least one turn.
     I seek my fifth kill before leaving for Home Guard.  There is nothing quite like
the sound of that last dying breath escaping through a sword wound in the lung of
your opponent.  Hussah!
     To those about to die, I salute you!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CHIMLEVTAL games.  Fortune did not smile upon THE 
ANIMALS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 13th position in the wake of 
a 0-0-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week RAPTOR went 3-2-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  Did only my 
eyes note the 3-1-1 record which PESTILENCE managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  LOCUST caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THANATOS and was awarded 28 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ENTROPY put down PYTHON, 
causing him to lose 23 points of recognition in the process.  This time out BEDLAM 
made his bid for the throne as he challenged ULL STORMHELM in an all out contest of 
skill for possession of the title!  Although BEDLAM made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious ULL STORMHELM.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CHIMLEVTAL "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  THE STORMBRINGERS is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of SOL INVICTUS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  LES NAYLE take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in CHIMLEVTAL.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that DIRDEN I posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
BLACK PLAGUE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DIRDEN I subdued BLACK 
PLAGUE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of ULTHAR STORMHELM who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought ULTHAR STORMHELM showed 
great skill and promise when he defeated RAT'S NEST.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape 
the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran THANATOS was slain, despite a 
8-4-1 record.  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in CHIMLEVTAL as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--

High Lord Bosk -- Tal and well met, Mighty One.  Esse Quam Videri, my brother! -- The
Icelord

Lord Protector Ull Stormhelm -- WELL done on taking the title!  The Council salutes
you! -- The Icelord

Voodoo Zoo Etc -- Welcome back! -- The Icelord & The Stormguards

Commander Spud -- We see no "new series of teams acting as guardians of Chimlevtal."
Ull Stormhelm holds the throne for the COL.  Guardian?  Isn't he still hiding and
sobbing? -- The Icelord

Famine -- Since your manager is a hypocrite and a coward you are unworthy of a
response.  You are dismissed. -- Death Knight

Ulthar Stormhelm -- Nice challenge!  And a 3-turn record of 3-12-0!  Your backwoods,
in-bred banjo-playing cousin Jethro T. would be proud. -- Major Pain

The Icelord -- Many salutes to you, Mighty Warrior.  May our spring bring great
tidings! -- High Lord Bosk

Cornelius -- Well, damn.  I thought that being from a "pool hall," you'd be a
swimmer, and I brought a harpoon instead of a sword.  Fat lot of good it did me. --
Les Nayle

Colonel O'Corn -- Wow.  As soon as I turned up the heat, you popped me!  Ouch.  Good
going. -- Oswell Quirn

Ceridwen -- What's with all the Cees today?  Our first three fights are losses to C
warriors, and Jorja's going to be annoyed.  She'll say we should at least have held
out of B warriors, even though what *I* say is we'd be lucky to defeat D warriors
with the amount of attention she gives us.  Oh well. -- Kolum Marod

Eagle -- Ah!  Now, an E warrior I can handle.  Very good.  Thanks. -- Loden Norvis

Badger -- Well!  I don't mind at all defeating, in an amazing mismatch against me, a
B warrior, but my teammates are likely to be annoyed and claim I made them look bad.
Ha!  I just told 'em they did the "looking bad" part all on their own. -- Norbel
Perde

Our congratulations to Ull Stormhelm. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
