                                  WARRIOR SPOTLIGHT

     "Listen, it's no big deal!  Everybody has to hand over to the golem sometimes,"
Debby Tonte said.  "Especially at tourney time when everything gets, you know, messed
up."
     "That doesn't mean I have to like it," Larkin growled.  "If we're going to be
merged with Free Blades at the next Split, we don't have so many times left with just
us here.  I don't want to lose one."
     Debby looked at him mournfully and picked the umbrella out of her drink.  "Don't
you LIKE us?  Don't you like ME?"
     "That isn't the point--"
     "Are you sure?  It sounded like the point."  She took a hefty swallow.  "It was
a GOOD tourney," she added.  "There was an arch beside a river.  There were donuts
and double mocha, but, of course, no umbrellas in that, but still."  She took another
swallow.  "Except for the rookies, but you know how they are.  They're, like, kids."
     Larkin blinked at her.  "No, how are the rookies?"
     "Well, they didn't want to fight.  Half of them wandered off to see sights and
sites and stuff.  And find good things to eat and drink."  The little blonde licked
her lips.  "There was this barbeque...."
     Larkin picked up his drink.  "Here's to the rookies, then.  They must be
unusually intelligent for gladiators."
     "But gladiators aren't supposed to be, you know, intelligent!" Debby protested.
"That's for, well, wizards and people like that."
     "Maybe their managers should send them to school to learn wizarding, then."
Larkin poured the contents of his glass down his throat and shuddered.  He wasn't
sure what that drink was, but Debby had been teaching the bartender at the Red Sands
to make new things.  He had the brief impression that a couple of cats were fighting
in his stomach, and then a mule kicked him in the head.  He raised the empty glass in
salute.  "Here'sh to 'em."

                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

Well well well, I stop paying attention for a little while and I end up back in my
rightful place, Champion of the Horn.  Now I shall brilliantly use my challenges and
avoids to continue to hold the top spot until this arena is disbanded.  Oh who am I
kidding, I'm just going to continue to run on maintenance until the lights are turned
out.  Maybe I will even get lucky and be able to defend the title once while doing
nothing.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Ha!  Eat your heart out, Zontani Golem!  I'm here.  Where are YOU?
     No challenges, no avoids.  Seventeen fights, with only three standbys, which is, 
as things go these days, not bad at all.  Nobody died.
     Since I'm about to take to the road again (nobody tells me WHY, but off I go), 
this will be the shortest of spy reports.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Mockingbird -- That was not as much fun as last time.  Spoil sport! -- Gregory Goyle

Uhlek -- Well done.  A very well executed thrashing. -- Tom Riddle

Toryn tyl Dageda -- Yeah, it appears one of the golems needs a spell checker. -- Tom
Riddle

Jammies -- You probably tripped over your tongue in your efforts to make my name
sound complicated. -- Tairikia
P.S.  Don't wear a tie next time, or someone will use it to strangle you.
P.P.S.  Heck, you could step on it and strangle yourself.

King Love -- What a contortionist you are!  After falling backward on the sand, while
dangerously stunned, you still manage to bow your head in respect and surrender.
Amazing how much it looked like s snarl of defiance.... -- Darlina

Thomas -- Not an ideal match for you, was it?  But it was good to see you again, even
if in this rude fashion.  Which is, now that one looks at it, quite odd.  I am not
normally interested in genderless golems.  Do you have some secret as yet
undisclosed? -- Khora the Small

Aria -- (crossly)  Do the men call you cute, because you're such a short, squatty
little toad? -- Toryn tyl Dageda

Nightcap -- (sigh)  I have been trying for MONTHS, or at least weeks, to get that
training order changed.  I guess I have to keep ON trying. -- Damoreth Stenn

Draco Malfoy -- "Tastier than the sweetest potion"?  You're an alchemist?  I think
you should be tested for banned substances. -- Nightfall

Larkin -- I hope you're feeling cooler this time out. -- Nightfall

     How can I tell?

Zalmardarin -- I lied; I have never faced a more masterful foe in my bathtub nor in
any other plumbing facility.  Sorry for being rude.  I noticed you had some very
dedicated fans up in the stands; would that I had the same. -- Cyladia

Kyrlania -- After that head hit, I doubt I could have passed a wit test, so it's
lucky the Commission was testing me for improved strength, eh?  Good fight. -- Bat

Tairikia -- No, I'm not; and no, you haven't. -- Jammies

Damoreth Stenn -- It didn't seem that you were ready to fight when you stepped onto
the sands.  Rough night? -- Nightcap

Tairikia -- Okay, I'll buy new undershorts if you'll come with, and help me pick them
out. -- Nightcap
