                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, back in the chair.  I'm bringing a pillow form Eat Em Raw Bug because a bruised 
ass isn't photogenic.

Know what I mean?

Bring me vodka.

Your duelmistress,

Blood Mary

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRANSEL will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BLACK AND BLUES is pushed out of top team by BLACK TIDE, who came from 
3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, BLOODSHOT fought POUND CAKE and gained 13 
points and contributed to BLACK TIDE's 4-1-0.  POUND CAKE has lost to BLOODSHOT, 
falling 12 points, while helping make EAT EM RAW BUG a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending hers 
title for another turn, BLOODY MARY kept BLACK AND BLUES' warrior, BIG BOSS MAN, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  BLACK AND BLUES has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TRANSEL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided BLACK AND BLUES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BLACK TIDE.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BLACK AND 
BLUES' warrior LOCKWOOD JR.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  Well now, what do you expect when someone like PRIVATE LIFE from OINGO 
BOINGO challenges down 28 points to fight FISH STICK of EAT EM RAW BUG?  We're not 
surprised to hear that PRIVATE LIFE subdued FISH STICK, but I bet it would be 
interesting to hear why OINGO BOINGO made such a challenge.  CAPITALISM of OINGO 
BOINGO had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge 
which she won.  I thought CAPITALISM showed great skill and promise when she overcame 
LOCKWOOD JR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Banners at half mast, warriors, 
BLACK AND BLUES has lost LOVELIGHT, and you might say all of TRANSEL has felt the 
loss, except maybe TRANSEL.  Is it really true that TRANSEL has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, TRANSEL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
