                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Apparently the new subway stop has brought in some of the riff raff as well.
Last week, I encountered a really nasty Venomous Concubine.  So when traveling,
especially at night, be careful, especially when alone.
     I was knocked down quickly and mugged.  Not a bright moment.  I cannot wish that
on anyone else.  But I am still transit.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 10 was 
unseated this week as ZOMBIE SQUAD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week GARBAGE PAIL KIDS went 2-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which ZOMBIE SQUAD managed to post 
this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  IKE caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE 
and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
DANG LEN put down LON OLBERT, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although CLOWN CONFETTI made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious SUBWAY.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me 
that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ZOMBIE SQUAD is feared.  This much 
I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of MAGIC INGREDIENTS last week.  Busy avoiding ZOMBIE SQUAD?   
     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 VALAMANTIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
