                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I defeated the Khalhums Dwarf in combat!  I'm impressed with myself, I did not
expect this.  I've trained and hoped, of course, but...this is very good.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team VABOROUGHS was unseated 
this week as BEYOND THE PALE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  ELDA MAINZ caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested EBOLA and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, ELDA MAINZ put down EBOLA, causing her to 
lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and SELVUN has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  
With SELVUN clearing the throne, BEYOND THE PALE of BELLA DEANE takes a proud seat as 
ZENSU's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  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!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, 
indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await 
me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hamilton -- I already KNEW I didn't like hospitals (who does?).  You didn't have to
hit me so hard just to remind me. -- Bella Deane

Oh, dear, a Captured Orc.  Just, uh, what I've always wanted?  Do I have to keep it?
-- Elda Mainz

     Only for two weeks.  Then we want it back. -- Arenamaster Diego

Does ANYONE like being matched with the Dangerous Criminal? -- Chuck Elvis

I didn't mind. -- Daceana Linz

Stilbo Steeleye, Khalhums Dwarf -- Well, of course!  It's the boost to their
concentration that comes from not having to organize coherent speech that gives mimes
their edge. -- Elda Mainz

     Meaning that those of you who talk too much MUST do poorly?  All is now clear.

Petrus of Tarrgir -- Well, uh, glad to be of help. -- Selvun

Gabro Ironaxe, Master of Kung-Fu and Many Other Exotic Techniques -- Good thing I
don't want to learn Kung-Fu, then. -- Chuck Elvis

Elda Mainz -- Hiya!  What's for dinner? -- Farnok Bogg, Orc of the Moment

Selvun -- That was well done for a Tall Person.  Not superb, mind you, but not bad at
all. -- Stilbo Steeleye, Khalhums Dwarf

Chuck Elvis -- Pathetic. -- Salimbas the Red, Dangerous Criminal

Daceana Linz -- (blushing and drawing lines in the dust with his toe)  Aw, shucks,
ma'am, t'warn't nothing. -- Salimbas the Red, Dangerous Criminal

Reston -- Hmm, the design still needs work, I see.  A Thieving Golem should not be so
easily overwhelmed.... -- Dar Hasanj, Master of Golems

Dulles -- For that handful of loose change, I thank you. -- Khardo Coppersleeve,
Impecunious Dwarf
P.S.  More would have been even better.
