                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I didn't like fighting the Veteran Mercenary.  Not that he was hard, because he
wasn't.  Tough, maybe, but not a fighter these days.  He's OLD.  Gray hair.  Withered
and hunched.  Doesn't move very fast.  It just didn't seem fair, though of course I
did my duty, as he did.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DONNA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MORDANT DESERTER and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VONNER WESS put down 
HUGH GRANT, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Although TOM 
BAKER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
BARLO CHELLS.  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!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JURINE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
