                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The fans love me--how could they help it?  But we managed to escape Top Team, so
all is going fairly well.  Needless to say, I could not and did not allow the
Convicted Assassin to claim this title.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  FAITH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was awarded 
19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KEVSILESSA KIRO 
put down LION'S MANE, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT LUM BUSBY is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  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 CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Lion's Mane -- Wow, you give new meaning to the term "big hair"!  But I kinda like
it. -- Morindel Salm

Faith -- Ah, perhaps you are in the wrong line of work?  You succeeded in instilling
faith into me, and thus lost the fight.  I'm not complaining, but I acknowledge that
it seems a trifle unfair. -- Sauvarn Maur
P.S.  Of course, life IS unfair.

Uncut Hare -- Well, that was good.  Perhaps I should get a day job cutting hair? --
Kevsilessa Kiro

Baskerville Pig -- I probably hate you, but I'm too tired to be sure. -- Vonsitan
