                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello, Cliffhome!  It is I, Zantos, your favorite Duelmaster!  I am back once
again after a fantastic duel with Nilismarin Salm.  Nilismarin surprised me a few
times by going around my parries, but my superb training helped me overcome those
nasty blows.  I am looking forward to my next challenge.  Stillgard tells me I might
need only two more fights then I could get an invitation to the Isle!  I am going to
try to keep my focus on the next challenger.  Maybe Fuzz again?  Until next turn.

                                          -- Zantos

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CLIFFHOME!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, KOVORLIN SIRRO fought ENOCH and gained 16 points and 
contributed to JINDA-BAN's 3-2-0.  ENOCH has lost to KOVORLIN SIRRO, falling 14 
points, while helping make SOUL WARRIORS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, ZANTOS kept JINDA-BAN's warrior, NILISMARIN SALM, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Choking Ogre until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in CLIFFHOME, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in CLIFFHOME again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Kovorlin Sirro

Zantos -- As expected, we meet again, although without benefit of a challenge.  I
feel that I was doing well, since I made it last into the second minute and the
steward did not call it one-sided. -- Nilismarin Salm
