                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One more DM battle, one more win.  Life is good and golden.  I am 6-3 in title
fights.  Last time I gave anti-kudos to those whom I have beaten.  This round I give
applause and acclaim to the three who have fought above and beyond and pulled out a
lucky, lucky win over me in title fights.
  Jack Of Hearts AB Blood On The Tracks, may the king with the axe whack off his head
  Aaron AB Aimer's Inc, may the alphabet run out of As and their computer crash
  Hori Bull BA Punny Aminals. may he forever fight like his name indicates
     There you have it.  Send the wolves after me.  That may be the only way you can
wrestle the title from my hands.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt WILLAF will ever be the same.  And let's see, GOLDEN GLOVES fought HOMEMADE 
DRESS and gained 16 points and contributed to GOLDEN GLADIATORS' 4-0-0.  HOMEMADE 
DRESS has lost to GOLDEN GLOVES, falling 11 points, while helping make BLOOD ON THE 
TRACKS a 3-1-0 turn.  This turn GOLDEN FLASH challenged WHIP SAWYER in what was 
WILLAF's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and GOLDEN 
FLASH remains WILLAF's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the BLOOD ON THE 
TRACKS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on WILLAF, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided BLOOD ON THE TRACKS stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was PUNNY AMINALS' warrior WHIP SAWYER.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.  The Warty Toad declares a free 
round for PAPA'S BANKBOOK and all of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, for having revenged PUNNY 
AMINALS' BUM BULL for killing one of their comrades.  Is it really true that WILLAF 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, WILLAF, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in WILLAF and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in WILLAF again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Black Orc -- Thanks for taking me away from all this.... -- AU

Sounds like a suicide note to me!  Au's replacement will be a lovely Gold Piece.  Be
nice to it. -- Midas

Sofa 'Yam -- Ho hum. -- Golden Flash

Whip Sawyer -- Well, you lived up to your name and totally surprised me.  Salute. --
Golden Tongue

Early One Morning -- I just love mornings.  Tee hee. -- Goldfinch (just flittin' away
and havin' a good time)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Seven dead in the Dark Arena today!  The horror!  The fear!  What will become of us?

We salute the tourney participants, with a special wave for Darling Tatiana, tourney
victor. -- Whip Sawyer and the Punny Aminals

Two-three.  (sigh)  This is so... predictable.  I suppose it's better than an oh-fer,
but not much.  One of the wins was over a Convicted Thief!  They're notably wimps. --
Whip Sawyer

Golden Tongue -- I had to check twice to be sure I'd won that.  But I did!  I have to
tell you, a tongue-lashing is small potatoes compared to what I can do. -- Whip
Sawyer

Audrey Hepburn -- Again?  But it's known that your manager would have you seek the
easier wins.  I don't suppose I can actually blame him for that, though the idea of
doing so occurred to me. -- Rusty Neales

Golden Flash -- Not much flash in THAT fight. -- Sofa'yam
P.S.  But I got a good nap.

Old Canal -- I thought there was a BRIDGE there! -- Notton d'Ball

Thieves, ah.  I like to fight thieves. -- Bum Bull
