                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This column is being written by order of Bentsword, the manager of this depleted 
stable.  Bentsword keeps mumbling something about Grimwood's curse, which seems to 
have something to do about failing to achieve immortality if you don't write a DM 
column.
     I have never been one of Bentsword's favorites.  He doesn't care for the wall of 
steel style.  He also complains that *.* and Triffid were better WoS stylemasters who 
fought in his stable.
     The only good new for me is that he seem inclined to let me fight for a bit in 
ADM if I ever graduate.  In the meantime, I am looking forward to the Face.
     I hope you all die.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LOCKLEAR caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ROC and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NAKOR put down KROM, causing 
him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Although BOSH made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PRINTS OF WHALES.  Would 
you believe that over half of the old women in ROCANIS seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ROCANIS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in ROCANIS these days is THEM.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of SKULL SQUADRON last week.  Busy avoiding THEM?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
