                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To the Khalhums Dwarf I say, good try, but not good enough.  I won, I'm keeping
the title, and I am OUT of here.  Thanks to all who helped make this possible.


P.S.  Scimitar favorite!  Cool.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KATI-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HOLY WATER HAMMER win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, BREAK STUFF beat GHETTO DEFENDANT and GHETTO DEFENDANT lost 8 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KATI-TEI may be getting 
bland, as FORANDIN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KATI-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  WANDERERS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE PLAGUE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in KATI-TEI to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of KATI-TEI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Reaper & Jorja -- Hammer sends his greetings!  We have arrived to give your stables
some company! -- Templarz Hammerz

The Kung-Fu Master talked big last time, when he beat Ox, as though that was HARD,
but he didn't show big when he faced me today.  I pinned his Kung Foot to the sands
with an offhand dagger and then proceeded to make sushi out of him. -- Lorimina
P.S.  And I don't even like sushi.

Ah, M. Chardinee knew I was demoralized by last cycle's loss.  It was that Kung Foot
in the teeth last time.  M. Chardinee has something sneakier going for him, but I
haven't figured out what, yet.  When I do, though, LOOK OUT. -- Rambling Ox

Vulture -- Fighting you, a managed gladiator, is doubtless an incredible honor, but I
could have done without it.  Easily. -- Terrindar

Janie Jones -- Radio clan, hmm?  Is that a branch of the Radio family of Caleam,
which is a branch of the Radichos of Valamantis?  Just curious. -- Valarelle

Forandin -- So.  You're leaving, eh?  Well, good.  Things are too crowded here in
Kati-Tei, why, every fifth house is occupied!  And there are no more than seven
unfilled jobs for every able-bodied worker.  Definitely time to leave. -- Goban
Steelsinger, Dwarf of Khalhums

Lorimina -- Not bad for a beginner.  Of course, if I'd put my BEST foot forward,
things might have been different.  Or not, you can never tell.  One of the alleged
charms of the arena. -- Gilgor Hammerfoot, Master of Kung-Foot and Other Arts

Rambling Ox -- Young man, you are pathetic.  What have you been doing with yourself
to slip so far?  Back on your diet, back on your exercise program.  No more self-
indulgence. -- M. Nilsiroeth Chardinee

Ghetto Defendant -- You realize, I presume, that you are giving good manners a bad
name in the eyes of young beggars all over Convincia?  This is, in the long run,
counter-productive. -- Josem Green, Beggar and student of Emma Le Poste

15 January 2008
                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
