                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Veteran Mercenary?  Why would I care to fight a Veteran Mercenary?  They have
little to teach me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HARBERT KREIGH caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CONVICTED THIEF and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE put down KOLBERT MOON, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has IMROM LLEWS in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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 VALAMANTIS "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 VALAMANTIS 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 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
