                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Given the Commission's record in identifying people's races and places of
origin, it shouldn't surprise anyone to hear that the Jhelum Raider isn't from
Jhelum.  Some wild Rirorni from down south, probably.

                                     Samildar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TROCAR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SAMILDAR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MATEEN and was awarded 7 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LAKE PATROL put down ALLERDAE 
CHAN, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has KORASIM 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 TROCAR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  EMNAR GORIN take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
TROCAR.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Emnar Gorin -- Climbing trees.  Me?  Bah!  Being of short stature I detest anything
bigger than me.  Rather than climb them, I cut them down to size. -- Zakariya

Allerdae Chan -- What does that say about you?  Well they say great minds think
alike.  Wish they fought alike. -- Mano a Mano

To all -- FYI.  I am the real Sultan. -- Sultan

     Actually you aren't.  The real Sultan is currently only playing in a couple
     arenas, but he's been around for much longer. -- NAIEI

Okay, so I lost the fight and the title, sue me.  The Gurtagan Monk kicked me in a
sensitive place and impaired my ability to keep fighting. -- Vardin Abeq

The Lake Patroler beat me around the head and shoulders with a FISH.  I wasn't
prepared for that, and I won't TAKE that. -- Samildar

Dawud -- I don't like it when men LOOM over me like that.  It makes me tense. --
Allerdae Chan

The Slave Warrior doesn't look like much of an advertisement for the practice. --
Emnar Gorin
