                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wheh!  Finally, immortality!  Not quite the record of my teammate Heartbreak who
left at 18-2, but still a respectable 17-5.  My manager is quite pleased.  I guess
when he first sent me here he didn't expect me to live past ten fights.
     For the curious:  15-10(2)-7-15-21-5-13; ae init, ex rip, ae att, ae par,
longsword, mod/high ripost learn.  Been run like a lunger since I returned, that is
until my last fight.  Actually ran my rhythm in minute one.  Would never know it by
reading the fight though!
     Sidewinder, good fight.  If not for my turtle shell... well, who knows.  FYI,
minute two was running 6 kill desire, left leg.  Glad to hear you made it out of the
infirmary.  Best of luck to you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHANS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SANFORD'S OTHER SON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ENEMY SABOTEUR and was awarded 
14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MORDANT DESERTER 
put down JONZ KLEE, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  
Although BEEF made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious KHYLAR.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHANS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
JHANS these days is WRATHMEN.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SERPENTS HOLD are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHANS 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.--

Our heart-felt congratulations to Khylar. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Viper -- Bah.  Snakes, and upstart hotshot snakes at that.  Really annoying. --
Chester Grell

The Flyest -- Wait a minute, I was most challenged--Debby Tonte said so--and there
WERE challenge matches... and I get a random match?  And it wasn't even a GOOD random
match (good match = match I win).  Something's weird here.  I don't like it. --
Hildreth Lamont

Ether -- Well, of course you did.  I am, after all, susceptible to standard
anesthesia. -- Orval Payne, feeling none at the moment

Convicted Thieves and Persistent Beggars.  Finest kind of opponent when a win is
needed. -- Jonz Klee and Goran Koblinz
P.S.  We won't go into how long it took to get those wins, okay?
