                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What a collection of mediocrity our team is.  If you were to take each of our
lowest stats, we would be:
9-9-7-4-7-5-5
And our very best ones would look like:
18-19-14-21-19-16-17
Combined together, we are:
ST 9,12,13,17,18
CN 9,13,14,16,19
SZ 7, 8,11,12,14
WT 4, 4,15,17,21
WL 7,10,16,19,19
SP 5, 6, 9,12,16
DF 5, 7, 7,12,17
For an average:  14-14-10-12-14-10-10.
     I uses that proves FTF Manager thinks ST, CN, & WL are the most important?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SPAWN caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested TALK-TO-DEATH and was awarded 
20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FALCONIER put 
down WRATH, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on SERNILLAN as she bore arms 
against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster GARTH.  Not for nothing has GARTH in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  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.  JADE MOUNTAIN, city of gladiators! 
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SAND DANCERS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of MANAGER MUSINGS last week.  Busy avoiding SAND DANCERS?  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after SERNILLAN.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My hearty congratulations JAGINRU, for thy revenge 
upon SOULTAKER, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  
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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JADE MOUNTAIN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, 
but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Good-bye, Sernillon, and congrats.  It should have been me. -- Garth

Sernillan -- Bah, humbug. -- Mannequin

Jaginru -- I can be pretty good some days.  I, too, wish I were off to the isle. --
Garth

Jade Belle -- Gee!  I'm sorry.  I just got mad when you pulled on my pony tail.  Oh,
that wasn't you? -- Soultaker

Korto Lu -- I enjoyed the strategy and patience of that battle. -- Falconier
P.S.  I guess you need a faster horse?

Garth -- Are you going to graduate or what? -- FTF Manager (getting tired of footing
the bills.)

Sand Dancer -- We really are sorry about Jade.  Such a pretty name and fine fellow
warrior. -- FTF Manager

Garth -- I don't even have to turn over the page.  Since you remain the duelmaster,
you must have won. -- Jaginru, feeling jaded (rather appropriate, eh?)

Mannequin -- A pleasant result.  I like it. -- Sernillan

Soultaker -- You again.  (sigh)  You just can't stay away from me, can you?  It must
be my above-average attractiveness. -- Jade Belle
P.S.  And no, you can't take my soul, it is already sworn to Mantor and protected by
the Covenant.  Cultivate your own soul.

Falconier -- I don't think I got enough sleep last night, though it's hard to be
sure.  I mean, I slept through it. -- Korto Lu

Standbys, gotta love 'em. -- Bearstone Kai
P.S.  In a sense.

Garth -- (recoiling)  I don't do "sultry" with other men. -- Jaginru
