                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, of course it's good that *I* am duelmaster now, but I miss Steamed
Muscles.  I was getting to where I actually liked that dish--with butter and parsley,
you know.  Tasty.  Ah, well.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  A new guild, MEDAL OF HONOR Z2, 
entered LIN TIRIAN with a clash this turn, showing off a 4-0-0 record.  Indeed, a 
worthy addition to the city guilds.  PERSIPHONE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CHILI PEPPER and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PERSIPHONE put down 
CHILI PEPPER, causing it to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of MEZQUINO POLLO, 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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LIN TIRIAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Oh, heck.  Only five fights here last time, and we were in all of them.  Bummer.
Only one standby, though.  Bigger bummer that Silver Slim killed the Green Giant.
That was so unlikely!  Sure, Slim is not, at heart, a nice guy--he's here to get out
from under a major fraud conviction--but he isn't a KILLER.  He will, of course, be
available for any bloodfeud that might happen along. -- Jorja
P.S.  And for Urik, who IS a killer if he gets the chance (he prefers to come up
behind people with a dagger) took the title on a LOSS, merely because he had more
points.  He'll be insufferable around the guildhouse.
