                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't like Kung-Fusiasts, okay?  They make my stomach hurt.  Usually by
kicking me there....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  UNCUT HARE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 13 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LION'S 
MANE put down VONSITAN KORV, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although CONVICTED ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious LUM BUSBY.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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 CLIFFHOME 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
