                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I took the word "squeeze" for instruction and did so.  It got me the title, but
no skills.  I guess this'll do... for now.

                                       Ros Quin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ERINIKA games.  ADULTERY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SALINDA RENN and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLUE put down 
ALUCARD, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, 
the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than 
Duelmaster ROS QUIN himself.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week 
as EXTORTION boldly challenged ROS QUIN in order to strive for the Duelmasters 
honors?  The city has turned out in honor of EXTORTION, 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 ERINIKA.   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in ERINIKA 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 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
