                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I anticipate hearing that Ethon el Keer has been the victim of an input error,
and a nasty one, at that.  He was probably mistaken for a basher.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  PACMAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KURESSA D'GEN and was awarded 22 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PACMAN put down 
KURESSA D'GEN, causing her to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ETHON EL KEER, Duelmaster of 
VEASTIAN!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VEASTIAN.  VEASTIAN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is WOLF RIDERS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
TERMAGANT VOTARY last week.  Busy avoiding WOLF RIDERS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  KONJOR take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in VEASTIAN.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tirraj -- A full beard might make a nice target of your face.  So go ahead and grow a
beard. -- Ethon El Keer

You are a sneaky one, but you teach very well!  Ethon is up next, then you get me
again. -- Tamara Rahn

Noachian -- I imagine you will send Ethon after Pacman this turn which should avenge
the bloodfeud.  If Pacman survives I must sit him out for the next tourney.
Asteroids, Joust, and Battlezone should be around for a little while to beat up on if
you feel you need a little extra revenge. -- Otis

Bengal -- Your "animal magnetism" pulled the armor right off my back, the weapons out
of my hands.  Talk about a "secret weapon"! -- Konjor

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  I suppose if you're a dwarf of undwarfly height, you end
up getting aggressive and then go away to fight people your own size in spaces where
you can stand up straight, yes? -- Stiljanz

This Convicted Assassin is a Highly Suspicious Character.  He is in collusion with
the Arenamaster, also, who prevented me from making a dramatic come-back and
slaughtering him.  We should do something about this. -- Kuressa D'Gen

The Kung-Fu Master isn't a suspicious character, he's just a creep.  You know why he
comes out bare-handed, don't you?  Because he likes to "grapple" with us of the
female persuasion. -- Tirniellis

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
