                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One-two, knuckle a Shew!  Here I am on top, EXPOSED to vicious challenges, and,
even worse, rapacious fans!  What did I do to DESERVE this, I ask you?  I washed a
little scribbling off a wall, and that's IT.
     And I'm seriously annoyed at my teammates for their lack of support, too.
Pathetic losers matched against less-experienced but more competent fighters.  Bah.

                                   Ursila Rilvar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly FRATSFA games.  Former top team WHERE AM I? was 
unseated this week as IRON CATHEDRAL moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  My praise to IRON CATHEDRAL for their 5-0-0 week 
this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  COSMIC 
FRIES caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
CRAZY COLEA and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, VICAR GENERAL put down PANTRY OF PAIN, causing him to lose 8 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail SUN QIAN, Duelmaster of FRATSFA!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In FRATSFA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  FRATSFA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is WHERE AM I?, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of FLOWER GIRLS are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  ELLIS TATE take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in FRATSFA.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My condolences to WHERE AM I? for their loss of a 
very promising warrior, BLACK REPOSITORY.  BLACK REPOSITORY went to doom before the 
arms of HAUGHTY HOLLY, a warrior of FLOWER GIRLS.  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 FRATSFA 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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

didn't we? -- Hot Honeysuckle
