                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've seen my cook do some bizarre things, but fortunately, I've never seen him
use a Violent Orange.  Sounds like something that could cause the restaurant to get
sued.  Oh, but wait!  I don't care about that anymore!  I QUIT!!!!
     Not that I hated being a waitress, but being a Lord Protector is such much
better.  I hear the restaurants on the Isle are much nicer and their cooks do things
right.
     I'm off to the Dark Arena for my final fight.  But I've got so much to do before
that.  I need to get my hair and nails done.  I need to figure out what to wear.  And
packing!
     Thank you all for your support.  You have no idea how much tips mean to us
waitresses!  A little bit can go a long ways!
     Farewell.  Perhaps I'll see some of you again on the Isle.

-- The Cook Messed Up

Notes from Assur:  The Cook Messed Up is my 5th AB to the Isle.  I'm writing without
notes, but she graduates with something like 4 masters (or very close to 4), missing
only a rating in Initiative.  Her faves are uninspiring.  With Very Little Endurance
and Normal Damage, the real challenge was balancing her strategy to maximize her
chance to win.  I've learned a bit more about using Fists in the arena (two of her
losses).  But I'm quite happy to see her gain immortality.  It'll be a few years of
training before she enters another tourney and in spite of Fandil's complaints of her
being a bagger, she only had two tourneys under her belt.  Granted she TV'd rookies
and went 6-3 as an Initiate, but not what I call a bagger.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  WHAT WATER? caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CORBIN ROSS and was awarded 
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WHAT WATER? put 
down CORBIN ROSS, causing him to lose 22 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on STONE GOLEM as he bore arms 
against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster THE COOK MESSED UP.  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, THE COOK MESSED 
UP, leaving BASH BROS. WAITRESS in mourning.  With bloody hand WHAT WATER? has 
ascended to the throne of champions.  Is she that one which is spoken of in the 
ancient texts?  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 ARDIVENT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  AZURE CLOUDS is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of FANDILS last 
week.  Busy avoiding AZURE CLOUDS?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after CORBIN ROSS.  Watch your 
back!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARDIVENT.  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 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

No Name -- I am leading a comeback for the Fandils. -- Uncle Junior (with a cheesy

Our congratulations to The Cook Messed Up. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

What Water? -- Of course I know you pay taxes on tips not received.  Just as I pay
taxes on the monies not received from which I would have left a tip, if I'd received
'em. -- Corbin Ross

Black Bile -- Cheese, I could sure USE some water about now. -- Corbin Ross

Shelley Ann -- You don't like me anymore?  I'd rather match against the cat. --
Joubert Klee

Anti-Leap Year -- Ah, that would be the Stand-Still Year?  Maybe I should try it. --
Arlene Ross

Snuffy -- You didn't have to BITE my fingers.  I was just making a friendly overture.
-- Fingers Brooke

Well, that was a good beginning.  I suppose all my fights won't be that easy? -- Tria
Skathach

Kurt Cobain -- Don't you know I am the former Duelmistress?  Have some respect for 
your elder, won't you?!? -- What Water?

Ardivent -- The plan is to run my other waitress to completion.  Plans can change,
but you can expect me to stick around for a bit. -- Assur
