                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Two 'n a row--could it be three?  Hope so--now that the Tourney's done, "Them"
will be returning.  I've heard it said that I'm not too bright, and that's right, I'm
not a Too Bright.  I'm a Slasher.  Okay, good, now that is cleared up, where's the
party and drinks and dancers?  'Til next wee, see you all and best of luck, yada
yada.

                                      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 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  MOE FROSTTOOTH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ROCANI TURNCOAT and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GERHART ERVIN put 
down FRANKIE TOO, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  
Although DRAKEN-KORIN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious LINKIN LOGGER.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
ROCANIS seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ROCANIS.   
     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!   
     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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
