                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I defeated the Veteran Mercenary, who was, as usual, fighting with one hand tied
behind his back, and buried him in the sand.  For this, they made me Duelmaster
again.

                                    Rambling Ox

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 
record which THE PLAGUE managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  DODO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested JANIE JONES and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, DODO put down JANIE JONES, causing her to lose 4 
points of recognition in the process.  Although VIRGINAL CONCUBINE made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious RAMBLING OX.  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  WANDERERS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding WANDERERS.  Indeed it was THE PLAGUE.   
     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 KATI-TEI as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
