It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games. My praise to BEYOND THE PALE for their 3-1-0 week this time out. Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice! NOMAD caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested M. CHARDINEE and was awarded 14 points in recognition. In one of the week's more notable duels, SELVUN put down VERA DEMILO, causing her to lose 2 points of recognition in the process. Not for nothing has STUBBY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again. 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 ZENSU "art" is a word that has long since passed from the language! Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DEVILISH ANGEL. Watch your back! Give CARL THE TOOTH credit for his courage. Did you note how he challenged DEVILISH ANGEL despite the 29 point difference in their rankings? 3 points of newly earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is what CARL THE TOOTH must now weigh against the defeat which resulted. Vendettas. Bloodied blades and broken spears. Indeed the city has seen more than its fair share of red in recent times. Fate is a fickle mistress. She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious. Remember this! If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times already in ZENSU. Nice atmosphere you have here! Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off city calling to me. I must away! Till next we meet remember: a fool flies into a rage quickly and often. The wise are angered by the same thing only once.

THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS Stubby -- Well, you didn't take the title on a win, but at least you took it. Guard it well, as I know you will do. -- Tilarin Nomad -- Have you ever thought that you might be better off if yoiu went back to wandering around not fighting in the arena? Sure, you MAY win "eternal" youth and guaranteed resurrection, but then again, many strive and few succeed. If you have something to go back to, go now! -- Dellis Linz Pacifist -- What a liar you are! You are no WAY pacifisitic. -- Selvun P.S. Actually, that's kinda cool. Carl the Tooth -- What, only ONE? Where are your dozens in need of brushing? Ah, they rotted and fell out. Well, it happens. -- Chuck Elvis Vera Demilo -- Well, that's ONE friendship that isn't going to happen. -- Daceana Linz P.S. Of course, since you're a golem, that wasn't really likely anyway. I never know what to say to golems. 14 February 2007 RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.
