                             Notes from the arena champ.

The Consortium's Father was a 30-year employee -- first mechanic, then truck-driver of 
Cannelton Sewer Pipe Co (later CAN-TEX) and is, therefore, my namesake.
..... history of the Cannelton Sewer Pipe Company, which was founded in 1908 in 
Cannelton, Ind., and manufactured vitrified clay sewer pipe, subsequently expanded to 
Mineral Wells, Tex., and formed Texas Vitrified Pipe Company, acquired or started 
plants in Florida and Owensboro, Ky., was consolidated with its subsidiaries as CAN-
TEX Industries in 1963, and subsequently became a division of Harsco Corporation; 
together with business and product information materials (1925-1974); minutes (1946-
1963) of the board of directors of Southwestern Plastic Pipe Company and Tex-Vit 
Manufacturing Company, both in Mineral Wells; stockholders' records (1960); and other 
records.....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to TIDE QB for their 5-0-0 
week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  
B. SIMS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, RUTHLESS JAYWALKER put down JODI BODI, causing her to lose 2 
points of recognition in the process.  Although KHALHUMS DWARF made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious CANTEX.  Informants "close" to 
the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARDIVENT.  ARDIVENT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is TIDE QB, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding TIDE QB.  Indeed it was FANDILS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARDIVENT 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
