                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Karolvingar the Roving Demon!  An old friend, you might even say, an old
drinking buddy.  And, no, I did not cover HIS bar tab, either.  He soaks it up like
blotting paper, thus becoming blotto.

                                   The Tall Man

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUKAL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
QUEEN is pushed out of top team by BLUE MOON, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this 
turn.  And let's see, COMPLETELY BLUE fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 18 points 
and contributed to BLUE MOON's 4-1-0.  NO TIME has lost to BISBEE BILL, falling 12 
points, while helping make QUEEN a 1-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and THE TALL MAN remains ZUKAL's top warrior for another 
turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Blue Boar Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the QUEEN stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding QUEEN more than any 
other team we find SATAN'S KINGDOM.  ZUKAL, are we going to accept, or respect this 
sort of thing?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUKAL and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
