                             Notes from the arena champ.

So, this is farewell.  It's been fun, and I've a plan to continue to Horde on the 
throne forevermore.

The stats: 14(+2)-11(+1)-3-17-21-10-11:  Master Parry and Defense; AdEx Attack and 
Riposte; Expert Decis.  Mode everywhere, except Riposte where I'm -3.  Go figure.

Strategy: Very Low / Very Low, Unmodified.  Longsword.  That was a lucky break.

I'm off to the Dark Arena to see how many Little Damage strikes it takes to bring 
down a Mountain Troll.  At least I have Great endurance.

Yuppie Horde shall be avoiding Hruntling and (for good measure) Remy.  Affluenza and 
Fuerdai will both be double challenging Pimpled Farthing.  The oddsmakers will be 
giving me good odds, I think, with his 3-10 record against Yuppies.  But ... any given
Sunday ... blah blah blah.

See you at Home Guard!

Love Pink
Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORDANT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
PITCH PERFECT, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 8th.  TROPHIES stable has 
parlayed this turn's 1-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, FIVE DOLLAR BOY fought SOULCYCLIST 
and gained 26 points and contributed to RUN DMC's 3-2-0.  SOULCYCLIST has lost to 
FIVE DOLLAR BOY, falling 15 points, while helping make YUPPIE HORDE a 2-3-1 turn.  
This turn LOVE PINK Dark Arena Challenged ARENAMASTER KAKAR in what was MORDANT's 
Title bout.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER KAKAR killed the 
Duelmaster, LOVE PINK, leaving YUPPIE HORDE in mourning.  This incredible death has 
allowed, I might add, FUERDAI from YUPPIE HORDE to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Conan's Place until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the YUPPIE 
HORDE stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MORDANT, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding YUPPIE HORDE more than any other team we find SUPER STARS R 
US.  MORDANT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was SUPER STARS R US' warrior PIMPLED FARTHING.  More 
fighters challenged it than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  MANNEQUIN'S BEST has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you 
kill your fighter, BIOWARE, who had a record of 3-0-1?' This is not good to see.  Why 
pray tell has SAD FACE CLOWN been sent to the Dark Arena by RUN DMC?  And why with a 
2-0-0 record??  I guess it was coming sooner or later, SUPER STARS R US has lost 
PIMPLED FARTHING, and MORDANT is bound to miss it.  For a little while, at least.  Is 
it really true that MORDANT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just 
thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in MORDANT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
