                             Notes from the arena champ.

HOLY MOLY ROCKY!!  Hey everyone get back in here. You all know...look at my points.
I don't belong on this throne and some of you BETTER return to try to recapture it!
As it stands, I have to take on an arena pudly my next fight and will most likely
hold the throne again. Am I really that good and you all that bad!? -- Sirod Evoli

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  TRAFAL GAL FUM caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PUCE and was awarded 27 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NEALA put down 
KURBALD, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
JACINTHE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
SIROD EVOLI.  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 TRICORUS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DARK HORSEMEN is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding DARK HORSEMEN.  Indeed it was AMAZON ELITE.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TRICORUS.  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

The Ambitious Guard is such a joke, I laughed myself sick.  Then I had to go to the
doctor, so I sent the bill on to that dumb guard.  It was all his fault anyway.

Ha!  If any merchant thinks he can charge ME interest, he can stuff it in his ear and
make hash. -- Galbei
P.S.  Er...that didn't come out quite right, but I'm sure you can figure out what I
meant.

The Ambitious Guard?  (sigh)  Big, strong, handsome, and no damned good in the arena.
Watching him, I thought of lots of things I could have done, if I'd been in his
position during that fight.  But did HE do them?  No, of course not.  It never
occurred to him. -- Aillendei

Neala -- Hey, a real opponent!  Cool.  I'm the only one on our team that got a REAL
match. -- Kurbald
P.S.  Er, shouldn't your greater experience have given you an edge?  Shouldn't you
have TAUGHT me more than a single skill?  What were you DOING out there?

Gawds, first I'm assaulted by Puce, I ask you, what kind of color is that?  (shudder)
And them I'm assassinated by Tangerine, and believe you me, I am going to report that
to the Assassins' Guild.  Tangerine had better have a license for that!  And then a
dumb magician comes along and resurrects me so I can do this AGAIN, like it was FUN.
Gawds. -- (name withheld by request), late of Mordant and considering going back

The Deserter thinks HE has it bad?  I had to fight twice, too, and against warriors
with more experience.  Damned Rirorni scum, in fact.  Can I get a recount on this?
Maybe my strategy was incorrectly input.  And I know for a fact that the matches were
unfair on the question of recognition points. -- Terroldo, a guard in good standing,
so I'm ambitious, sue me

I do NOT understand why the Commission makes such a big point of my alleged "usery."
I follow standard business practices.  Everyone charges interest.  Get over it. --
Koralson of Sibikhas, merchant in good standing

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
