                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now I can't count the number of DM Titles.  Sixteen?  Sounds good to me.  The
only thing bad about it is that the last ten have been at the disadvantage of Middle
Way 6--nice guys all.
     Hopefully this time my DM Column goes in The DM Column spot rather than in The
Personals, but I suspect that no one gave a rat's rump of the mix up last turn.
     Challenge me.  Make it worthwhile.  You may win a blue ribbon.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SNOWBOUND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BERT & ERNIE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HEART OF GLASS and was awarded 
23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BERT & ERNIE put 
down HEART OF GLASS, causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  
Not for nothing has 4-H in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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.  SNOWBOUND, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is PUBLIC ENEMY, 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 PUBLIC ENEMY.  Indeed it was LIFE 
IMPACTS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after JENNA KUUL.  Watch your back!  At the gambling 
halls I have started to bet money on SYNERGY.  He has got the courage it takes.  
Witness his challenge this turn against MOLDAR NAY!  Do not the gods reward courage?  
SYNERGY it was that claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 23 points in 
recognition.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in SNOWBOUND 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
