                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay!  This is more like it.  Trash an orc and be recognized as the superior
person I am and named duelmaster.  About time I got the recognition I deserve.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SAND DANCERS was 
unseated this week as J moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  CJ caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
she skillfully bested BLACK TOM and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, CJ put down BLACK TOM, causing him to lose 9 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of JOEY, for with his 
arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  
A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LIN TIRIAN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in LIN TIRIAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

The Count -- It is wrong for a woman to be that tall.  I was trying to take you down
a little. -- Black Tom
P.S.  And I can, too, count!  Can you?

Osalat Revolver -- Very strange sort of moss.  But humans are always coming up with
strange things like that. -- Harnie Black

Sjs -- You rocs are crude and unkind to Ducks!  But that's okay, because we Ducks,
though not crude, do our best to be unkind to orcs. -- Kurtal Duck
