                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My surprised thanks to M. Chardinee.  I knew I could beat him, but I hadn't
expected to one-shot him.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZENSU!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  CARINA LINZ caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SERGEANT 13 and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CONVICTED ASSASSIN 
put down JOFRE MAINZ, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  
Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and CALHOUN 
DEANE has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With CALHOUN DEANE clearing the throne, 
BEYOND THE PALE of TERILEE LINZ takes a proud seat as ZENSU's new Duelmaster, by 
virtue of recognition points.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
ZENSU seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Gabro Ironaxe, Master of Kung-Fu and Many Other Exotic Techniques -- I think I
probably hate you.  If you hadn't snuck up behind me and put your hands over my eyes
and said "Guess who?" well, I'd've been better prepared for our match and I'd still
be the duelmaster. -- Corbie Lek
P.S.  How you managed a standing forearm strike to my hamstring, even though I *am*
very tall and you *are* a dwarf, is a mystery to me.

This must be "Beyond the Pale fights Standbys Day."  Sheesh.  The Vet put up a good
struggle, and then he didn't teach me a darned thing. -- Terilee Linz

I suppose I *could* say that Cal "softened up the Chardinee for me," but I prefer to
think that I beat him fair and square. -- Jofre Mainz

Sergeant 13 -- Well, they say I should be glad, that this means we didn't ALL fight
standbys, but I would've taken a standby, you know.  I'm not so puffed up that I
think they're beneath me. -- Carina Linz

Oh, cheese louise!  Only SIX active gladiators in this arena, and five of them are
us.  Talk about pointless.  Huh. -- Beyond the Pale

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
