                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is ridiculous.  A few Inconsistent Furies graduate, and suddenly there's no
one to contend for the title except standbys!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week THEM went 3-0-1 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  RYVAS VOLKMAURI caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested ERBIN GOETZ and was awarded 13 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, RYVAS VOLKMAURI put down ERBIN GOETZ, causing him to 
lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost 
to ROCANI TURNCOAT, BUT FREM HARID is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ROCANIS 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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
