                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, my reign was not as long as I thought it would be.  I really did not learn
very many skills during my time here.  I end up with less than 15 overall skills and
only ranked in Parry with an advanced expert.  I am going out with a challenge to the
losers over at Looney tunes and the one warrior in the Challenger Champions I have
not faced and beat.  I suspect he came out of retirement just to see if he can go 18
mins with me.  Taz.  It will be fun, I look forward to it.  I guess by now everyone
knows how my challenge ended up.  I am off after this turn to new sands after getting
my invite last turn.  Good luck, Dutiful, on your hunt for the top spot.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week NUMBERS GAME went 3-1-0 to move up 5 
in the rankings.  GROM HELLSCREAM caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested WAKIZASHI and was awarded 26 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GROM HELLSCREAM put down 
WAKIZASHI, causing him to lose 25 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster DRONE-ON himself.  Not for nothing has DRONE-ON 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CHIMLEVTAL "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in CHIMLEVTAL these days is THE STORM REAVERS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of BAD NEWS BEES are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that THE FOOL 
posted a challenge against the more highly recognized TAZ.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand THE FOOL defeated TAZ.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline 
of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of SHREWD who at 7-7-0 was 
dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of THE FARSEERS' demanding management.  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Sandra -- I think you can get over your cold feet now and come back to the arena.
The opportunity for me to Blood Feud you is now over. -- Stinger, mgr Bad News Bees

Rebekka -- You kept knocking me down only for me to rise again and again and in the
end watch you go down and stay there. -- Drone-On

Black Rolf -- Good try and in the end some good skill learns. -- Black Bee

Osmond Quint -- My Feud with you is over.  Way to stand in there.  I hope you got
some good skills from our times together.  My helm is off to you. -- Flyby

Destitute Noble -- More the merrier. -- Jorja

The Catalyst -- Hmm, a basher would work:  13-3-21-11-15-8-13, if my math is right.
He could use a warhammer, and he's got enough WL to raise a stat or two (such as CN).
Or a striker, almost anything works for a striker, maybe 11-5-21-11-15-8-13 and train
up that CN (otherwise he's likely to DIE, which is so discouraging).  Several
possible weapons for a striker. -- Jorja

Lobo -- Don't get carried away there!  A dedicated number-cruncher with this long in
the game, and there are a LOT of them, knows a lot more than I do.  But I talk more.
-- Jorja

Our congratulations to Drone-On. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Flyby -- And again well done. -- Osmond Quint
P.S.  Although with your greater experience, I'd expect more than one skill!  I'm not
actually stupid.

Killrogg Deadeye -- That dead eye is distracting.  Maybe you should get a magical
