                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Why do people keep trying to fool Dogs?  They said, Eddie, you get to fight the
Khalhums Dwarf today.  And he wasn't a dwarf, he was an elf.  Different smell, very
different.  The beard was probably false, too, but the smell was unmistakeable.

                                    Ready Eddie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARADI games.  Former top team BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS was 
unseated this week as RED DOG GANG moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  HORNET caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested HUSH PUPPY and was awarded 30 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHIQUITA CHIWAWA put down 
HOFFA, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail FALKYNOR, Duelmaster of ARADI!  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ARADI 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 ARADI.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I must report the passing of HUSH PUPPY, veteran 
of many duels.  11-11-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no 
favorites.  Death has again visited the sands of our arena.  HORNET has claimed the 
life of HUSH PUPPY.  Do any doubt that RED DOG GANG will seek a bloody revenge?  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?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

But I didn't WANT an Orc to come Visiting.  They're mean, and stupid, and they STEP
