                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Getting a little careless, Jeremy?  I certainly didn't expect to one-shot you.

                                      J'Korou

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  PRINCE JACKSON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GEORGE 
put down MECHAN, causing it to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster J'KOROU himself.  This time out KRYSTAL MEYERS made hers bid 
for the throne as she challenged J'KOROU in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of KRYSTAL MEYERS, for 
with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
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.  HAWK NELSON must really be harboring a grudge against the 
LUROCIAN ROYALTY guild!  Merciless, 53 challenged down PRINCESS EMILY points this 
week to duel with he.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as PRINCESS 
EMILY was beat by HAWK NELSON.  Is this what passes for courage 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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VEASTIAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
