                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No more prizes in your treats.  Sorry.  That is because I am leaving this arena.
Crysalis calls.  I am going to try that fist fave, and give out free prizes in the
box there.  I may need the freebies to balance out my fist experiments.  Meanwhile,
good luck to all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TELORINTHE games.  Former top team THE MYRMIDONS was 
unseated this week as OLDIES moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  NICKOTICKO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested BARLDEN and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, CUSTODIAN put down GARKEN, causing him to 
lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of 
MORIS NAHR, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position 
in the city!  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 TELORINTHE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in TELORINTHE these days is PUNY ORC PELOTON.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding PUNY ORC PELOTON.  Indeed it was 
OLDIES.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  SAM TALL 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in TELORINTHE.   
     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 TELORINTHE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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.--

Another merit badge! -- Life Scout

Lilliputain Levi -- What are you doing on that team?  You do not look SZ 20 or 21.

just got the best cards, eh? -- Contract Bridge

ready.  How crass!  I can't seem to win any way I try.  Woe is me. -- Custodian

little life... and stepped on it! -- Sam Tall

Custodian -- Better not quit your day job. -- Melanie Obern

Bomrex -- Oh... I thought you were some kind of fumigation device, and I was all set
to put you in the cellar....  We've seen a rat or two down there. -- Rosana Sabel

Ben10 -- Oh, well.  Someone's got to lose.  What?  Ah, okay, some of my teammates
already did that.  Good, I'm not alone in the losers' column. -- Petro Salm
