                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Listen, you numbskulls, I'm getting really TIRED of smart remarks about my
height and me being called a dwarf.  The Commission made a mistake, okay?  They see
anybody with a beard, even an obvious half-Shew like me, and they call him a dwarf!
What idiots!  And To-Fu asked for it, sniggering at me like that.  I ENJOYED beating
him up.  I'd do it again in a minute.

                                    Arnal Redaxe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  FOOTSTEPS caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DOWD and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FOOTSTEPS put down 
DOWD, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Our last turn's 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to TO-FU BACKSTABBER, and ARNAL REDAXE has made the 
way for a new Duelmaster!  With ARNAL REDAXE clearing the throne, SAND DANCERS of 
VOLTO LEENI takes a proud seat as JADE MOUNTAIN's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JADE 
MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Spike -- It's INDECENT that you should learn five skills (with two ratings) and teach
ME nothing on your last fight.  I hope your ship sinks on the way to the Isle. --

That blackhearted Shizaran wouldn't teach me a single skill!  So I hit him a second
time.  Let's see how he likes fighting with only one arm. -- Treenva Taral
