                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I still don't think Quincy Watts is the proper name of a Trojan, but hey.  Kinda
neat getting the title.

                                    Bearstone Kai

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  JAGUAR JON caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested STONEFACE MIKARN and was 
awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, QUINCY 
WATTS put down SUNSET THUNDER, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although LADY SCORN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious BEARSTONE KAI.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JADE MOUNTAIN "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
