                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, my turn again, hmm?  Okay, I can do this.  Gives me a chance to practice for
the hard stuff:  carving the darned turkey.  Strange birds.  Bones everywhere.
Gristly bits like whalebone where you don't expect it.  And you get all the way down,
open it up, and find... bread and stuff?  This makes no sense.  What happened to the
innards?  Not that I'm a great fan of turkey innards, but they should BE there.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 20 was 
unseated this week as INCONSISTENT FURY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  NICKOLI DRYBONE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DEBRA FARIN and was awarded 28 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NICKOLI DRYBONE put 
down DEBRA FARIN, causing her to lose 37 points of recognition in the process.  The 
city has turned out in honor of RYVAS VOLKMAURI, for with his arena victory he may 
now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ROCANIS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but 
confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DEBRA FARIN.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations NICKOLI DRYBONE, for thy revenge upon 
DEBRA FARIN, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time she will know better, eh?  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
