                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, no wonder you were unhappy, Duck Ka-Bob!  Somehow the orderlies--fools and
deceivers every one--ended up carrying you, not to the Infirmary, but to the
cafeteria kitchen!  I'd drop by when healed and demonstrate slicing and dicing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SAND DANCERS was 
unseated this week as MIGHTY DUCKS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  TANISTA TYRN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SAGAT OF PAIDAN and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, UNLUCKY DUCK put 
down GOOPHYS, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of BETTER DUCK, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DAL SHANG.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
