                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Today I met with the Veteran Mercenary, an over-sized dwarf (you shouldn't feed
them meat) who did his best.  It wasn't good enough.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  Former top team THE FAMILY was 
unseated this week as MEDAL OF HONOR F1 moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  SOLDIER 2 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CONVICTED THIEF and was awarded 7 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down SELINSIA, causing her to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and NORILTENNE has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With NORILTENNE clearing the throne, THE FAMILY 
of J'KOROU takes a proud seat as VEASTIAN's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition 
points.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VEASTIAN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in VEASTIAN 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

I wouldn't have hurt M. Chardinee so badly if he'd been willing to give up after
taking his first hit. -- J'Korou

If anybody thinks I'm going to "play nice" with the Venomous Concubine, that person
can jolly well think again. -- Worth Lissando

Drat.  The Convicted Assassin must've been practicing in secret. -- Sjordhal

Yeah, and the Venomous Concubine holds grudges against Worth Less.  Which *I* have to
pay for. -- Selinsia

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
