                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The life of a frog is not as boring as some of you seem to believe.  It is not
just flies and lily pads; rather it is full of surprises and the twists and turns
like the plot of a great story.  My life has been that of great lessons, and now I
carry that with me as I venture to the great Isle.  I am proud to be selected to join
my brothers in the greatest battles of our world.  Murska, do not mourn your loss for
I leave behind my kin.  They will fight with you to bring honor to this once great
city.
     I am unsure of my final fight.  Will Grimm send me to my fate in the Dark Arena?
He seems to love to inflict pain upon the creatures that dwell in the shadows.  Will
I stay and fight one last time for my great throne....let's see.
          Furious Frogpaler

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MURSKA games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week FOOT OF PRIDE went 3-2-0 to move up 
3 in the rankings.  URCHIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested DAYDREAM FROG and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, TORTURE put down FINN MAC KARMEK, causing him to 
lose 15 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 FURIOUS 
FROGPALER himself.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster FURIOUS 
FROGPALER Dark Arena Challenged STONE GOLEM last week in a match to decide the fate 
of the throne.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the 
Duelmaster, FURIOUS FROGPALER, leaving BATTLE FROGS in mourning.  With bloody hand 
THE DARK FROG has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is he that one which is 
spoken of in the ancient texts?  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 MURSKA these days is BATTLE FROGS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SOUND are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries 
of this world.  This week arena veteran TIMBRE was slain, despite a 11-7-0 record.  
Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies 
against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in MURSKA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.--

primitive sense of humor

Harpooner -- Took ME for a whale?  Get your eyes checked. -- Oisin
