                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Let that Duck complain all he wants, it'll do him no good.  He's a Duck and I'm
human, and that just naturally makes me superior.  Even his victory over the
Convicted Assassin was made possible--not easy, for him, but possible--by my prior
victory which devastated that assassin.  And just let him remember that now, when I'm
no longer bound by the arena rules, I might attack HIM!
     Duck in cherry sauce, HA!

                                   Delna Berin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LIN TIRIAN games.  MO J caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KURTAL DUCK and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KAT put down HAROUN 
SHADDAR, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has DELNA BERIN in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LIN TIRIAN.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Let Delna boast all she wants, true gladiators know the truth.  The Convicted
Assassin, being an orc, is not "softened up" by defeat, however devastating.  Orcs
become more vicious and harder to squelch.  But I looked on him as a slug in the
garden and just... gobbled him down.  Figuratively speaking, of course. -- Kurtal
Duck

Mike -- I had stage fright, okay?  I never did like those magical things that take
your voice and throw it around, only louder. -- Haroun Shaddar

Green J -- Okay, be that way.  What *I* am going to do, I'm going for the record of
Most consecutive losses.  It'll take me years, but I'm going for it. -- Urik
Darkheart
P.S.  I should not be a dwarf.  What *is* it with the Commission?

Squeek -- It's only your experience in the arena that saved you, hairy wench!  Come
out into the forest, and you're hairy ribbons. -- Sally Sharpe
