                             Notes from the arena champ.

I don't have too much to say, and that is only partly because there's almost no one
here to listen.  Thanks to Kat for the good fight.  My manager wants me to ask who is
running things over there.  I suppose we will be fighting each other again, if no one
new comes to town.  Best of luck to you, all the same.

Solar Sister

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KYR'TERR games.  WHO ME caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ELECTROLYTE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LAST STOP put down 
NIGHTHAWK, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Although KAT 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SOLAR 
SISTER.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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.  EQUALLY DAMAGED is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding EQUALLY DAMAGED.  Indeed it was NIGHTHAWKS.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after LEGAL MAN.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that SLYHAWK posted a challenge against the 
more highly recognized LEGAL MAN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SLYHAWK 
subdued LEGAL MAN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KYR'TERR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

     Solar Sister -- I listen. -- Ed., all ears

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
