                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Four-and-one against standbys (those Kung-Fu Masters are mean).  Just us and
the standbys on the sands.  And just the arena crew in the stands.  Hardly seems
worth doing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  TOO SWEET caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested M.T. LANE and was awarded 10 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, AMBITIOUS GUARD put 
down LENNALGIRE, causing her to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  
Although DERWEAR made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious SLIPPERY.  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.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 AMEN-TEI 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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
