                             Notes from the arena champ.

     M. Chardinee is not what I had in mind as "a better contest," and yet he IS a
more worthy opponent than the Convicted Assassin, so I suppose I shouldn't complain.
Not that such a supposition ever stopped anybody from complaining!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 7 was 
unseated this week as AVENGERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  SHO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested MANDIN ORWELL and was awarded 6 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SHO put down MANDIN ORWELL, 
causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
OMBERT QURL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CHIMLEVTAL.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I must report the passing of OSWELL QUIRN, veteran 
of many duels.  12-16-1 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no 
favorites.  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Huh, the Khalhums Dwarf.  Actually, he's tough.  I figure beating him means
something. -- Oswell Quirn
P.S.  I do wish it meant more than one skill.

Amur -- I don't know where the "vicious" part of that came from, unless it was an
automatic reaction against a dwarf.  And a dwarf that's too tall, besides; the
unnatural is always disturbing. -- Mandin Orle
P.S.  We were a basically pathetic pair, weren't we?

Pancakes -- Not a bad idea, though I do tend to overeat and then have to lie around
being bloated.  Still, what's a little bloat when it's pancakes? -- Lumus Nelp

A Convicted Thief.  Whoopee. -- Mandin Orwell
