                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Oh, dear, defeated by the Traveling Tinker (a Dwarf but not from Khalhums), and
I STILL take the title.  This is, well, my face is red, you know?  I don't belong up
here.  I will turn this column over to the Dwarf, if so be he feels like writing
anything.

                                      Kirssarina

P.S.  I know we've done this before, too, with the same outcome, which just makes it
worse.

      My thanks to Kirssarina, who has proven herself a true lady.  It is no wonder
that I defeated her on the sands; she is too green for this position.  Give her a
year of wins and losses and she might--possibly--be worthy.  Then again, she might
not.  She seems sadly lacking in stamina, and unless she stays with the exercise
regimen I have set for her, this will not change.  Sitting on a cushion eating
chocolates while a minstrel sings of courtly love will not improve the stamina of a
gladiator.

                     Khad'drakh'n'dhaz of Khra,
                          known as the Traveling Tinker, maker of superb blades

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAYLA KIV games.  KOLBAN TEN TAHL caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DANGEROUS BON LOKAR and 
was awarded 19 points in recognition.  Although PELIS THE OLD made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious KIRSSARINA.  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.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after DOLBY 
KLEE.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Was I the only one shocked to see the well 
respected fighter WHIRLPOOL (3-1-0) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is now 
dead.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Two and three against standbys, not good.  It says that Corps has a gladiator on the
sands, but we didn't see him.  He must have fought a standby also.  Thus it goes when
Small Arena Syndrome hits. -- Kirssarina, speaking for the Sand Dancers
P.S.  It's probably the snow.
