                             Notes from the arena champ.

     They do say that if you want to find something, you should google for it.  I
wanted a win, and by golly, Google found it for me.  It was a bit of a surprise; I
expected Google to be more aggressive.  But I am definitely not complaining!  Thanks,
Google.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MOKO TEN ZORA caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MADAME U-TANA and was awarded 
17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TRAVELING TINKER 
put down MORO TEN ZORA, causing him to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  
Although MADAME U-TANA made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious DOLBY KLEE.  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.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of GOOGLE who at 11-3-2 was 
dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of CORPS' demanding management.  Some 
guilds are strict but few are as heartless as CORPS.  Witness, last turn they sent 
GOOGLE, a 11-3-2 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  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 DAYLA KIV as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ruby Tuesday -- You depress me, because of your selective fighting and your
undefeated record.  Yeahyeahyeah, I know, it's all good management.  If my manager
would pay as much attention as yours does, it probably would NOT depress me when you
do well.  Ah, heck.  Good fight anyway.  Wow 'em at the tourney. -- Kolban ten Tahl

Ah, Chandar Lo, the closet Chardinee.  It gives me some satisfaction to defeat him,
more than one of the lower-ranked standbys.  They're wusses.  Where's the honor in
defeating a wuss? -- Moro ten Zora

Dangerous Bon Lokar, eh?  Dangerous to whom?  Does he take candy from babies?  I
think that might be about his speed. -- Lirin tyl Varin

     I don't know, that's a lot harder than is advertised. -- Ed.

If this Darsal the False told somebody, the arenamaster, maybe, that he was a
fighter, he lied.  Oh, I don't say he might not do okay in an alley or with a gang at
his side, but in the arena, broad daylight, one on one?  Forget it. -- Moko ten Zora
