                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And THIS time, I fight the Convicted Assassin, a nasty little twerp, and lose,
and I'm still duelmaster.  This arena needs more competition at the higher levels.
Soon!  It's embarrassing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  LION'S MANE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MORINDEL SALM and was awarded 
16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LION'S MANE put 
down MORINDEL SALM, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Although VETERAN MERCENARY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious LUM BUSBY.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CLIFFHOME.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  SEE YA has sworn to take up religion upon living 
to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
