                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I find your loss inexplicable, Soldier 3.  Perhaps it is part of this strange
period, I believe Mars is transiting the Great Bear, which is upon us and which has
produced unexpected wins all over Alastari.  I wish I could believe in many
repetitions, and perhaps even a chance for my quality to become apparent and gain me
release through Invitation to the Isle.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  SOLDIER 3 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested NORILTENNE and was awarded 8 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CAPTURED ORC put 
down SELINSIA, causing her to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of SOLDIER 2, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in VEASTIAN 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.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  NORILTENNE must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the 
arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by SOLDIER 3 of MEDAL OF HONOR 27.  Hail SOLDIER 
3 for thy victory!  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 VEASTIAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Soldier 4 -- Oof.  Does the number four signify that, being twice two, you try twice
as much harder? -- Sjordhal
P.S.  It's really hard to write personals to you guys.  You could lend a hand, you
know.  We'd give it back after the turn was over.

Ah, yes, Tolbert Rose, "honest merchant and moneylender."  The only thing that would
carry more weight would be if he called himself "Honest Tolbert."  Seems like it's
only those whose honesty is in question who feel they must proclaim it. -- Noriltenne

How strange the "Osksi Noble" looks when he comes out in delarq-face.  He should
spend more time on practicing and less on disguise, as I have heard that the true
Osksians can be quite dangerous. -- Selinsia
P.S.  Which this poor fool is not.

And the Osksi Noble is a terror indeed compared to the Fratsfa Slave.  Who really IS
a Fratsfan, and we all know what THEY are like. -- Worth Lissando

Our congratulations to Soldier 2. -- Jorja and The Family

Soldier 2 -- Do not allow this victory to give you excessive confidence, grasshopper!
On the Isle you will meet those whose master of this art make mine look like that of
a novice. -- Svenj, Master of Kung Fu

Noriltenne -- It wasn't MY fault that your sword broke in that alley.  You shouldn't
have BEEN in that alley.  If you will insist on taking my swords to places that are
inappropriate for them, you must accept the consequences. -- Tolbert Rose, honest
merchant and moneylender

Selinsia -- That was uncalled-for and tedious of you.  Don't do it again. -- Zhorg
Enkhraj, Arena Manager and Procurer of Standbys

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
