                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Is an Enemy Saboteur really any better than an Assassin?  Okay, she defeated me,
but that was because she sabotaged my weapons.  Next time, I'll be ready for her.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  Former top team TEMPLE OF STEEL was 
unseated this week as MIDNIGHT GREMLINS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 1-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week SERPENTS HOLD went 3-1-0 to move up 5 in 
the rankings.  SERPENTITO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested HILDRETH LAMONT and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, BEEF put down SASSAFRAS LASS, causing her to lose 5 
points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of KHYLAR, 
for with his arena victory he 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHANS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  JHANS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is TEMPLE OF STEEL, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of SERPENTS HOLD last week.  Busy avoiding TEMPLE OF STEEL?  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  SANFORD'S OTHER SON take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in JHANS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
