                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, what's the joke?  Where's the punch line?  Who's playing this trick on me?
Something's going on?  Let's see... April Fool's Day?  Nope, long gone.  Halloween?
Check; not that; too far away.  I don't get it.
     What?!  It's TRUE!!!!  I AM Duelmistress??!!  This is, this is, well, this is
just plain a miracle!  Coral?  I smacked Coral?  For the championship?  This is
AMAZING!
     Well, now, uh, I guess I just better start acting like a Duelmistress, no matter
how much of a surprise it is.  Uh, let's see.  First I HAVE to get my hair done.  It
is such a mess.  And a manicure.  Oh, yeah!  I wonder; can I get a massage on the DM
expense account?  Can't forget the shoes; new shoes; lotsa shoes.  I need some pink
high heels to wear with my pretty spandex.
     Wait a minute.  Wait up!  What's that?  I have to head to practice?  Why?  I'm
Duelmistress.  I wanna revel in it!  Here today; gone tomorrow.  I am just so, so
happy that I had my "here today."
     Okay, I coming.  I'm coming?  I wonder what outfit I should wear???????

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MARCI FOOTE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and was 
awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOLLIE 
SCOT put down SCALES, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  
Although CORAL made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious YVONNE.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ARDIVENT, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SERPENT'S HOLD, 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 FANDILS last week.  Busy avoiding SERPENT'S HOLD?   
     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 ARDIVENT 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.--
