                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, I fought Kit-Kat (again) on turn 359, and defeated him, and remained the 
arena's champion, and I didn't get to write a column.  Who is to blame for this?  My 
manager, of course.  Lazy woman.  She says she was BUSY.  Oh, HA!

     Ah, this time I have the not-from-Khalhums not-a-Dwarf.  Lovely.  But also a 
graduation notice, and that really IS lovely.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team FAVORITE GUYS was unseated 
this week as FORCE OF FIVE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
1-1-0 record for the round.  VLADIMIR TALTOS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KETA and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VLADIMIR TALTOS put down KETA, 
causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail STONE DOG, Duelmaster of JURINE!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JURINE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
