                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Seems like there are only the two of us in this arena, dear Hot Stuff!!  I'm
crappy, but, well... not the best match-up, I guess...

Zoum la Bouse, still standing

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of THE GREENHOUSE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 
3-0-0 record which BLOOD AND GUTS! managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  HU YAN ZHUO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JASMIN and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HU YAN ZHUO put down JASMIN, 
causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
ZOUM LA BOUSE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In THE GREENHOUSE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to 
beat in THE GREENHOUSE these days is DRAGONS GUARD II.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of BLOOD AND GUTS! last week.  Busy avoiding DRAGONS GUARD II?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 THE GREENHOUSE 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 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
