                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hi SOLVEN!  It's me, Vladia.  I have returned once more as your Duelmistress.  At 
least until them Ruskies go active again.  Man, those guys sure are tough.
     CANDYMAN must be getting close to the final stretch on the road to immortality.  
I do hope THE MENTORS GORE select a new champion, or project warrior, or something.  I 
appreciate their presence in the arena.
     The bloody feuds here in Solven continue.  SWEET MUSIC is a death machine!  Who 
needs the Dark Arena?  We'll just keep sending our puds your way.  ...Wait, what?  I'm 
lined up to fight him?  *PFFFT*  Who writes this stuff!?  
     STONE FREE beat down THE BALROG.  I'm not surprised.  Okay, a little.  This just 
goes to show you nothing is set in stone on the sands!
     Oriental wise man also once say, 'Creative juice must flow like river.'  Well, 
it's not doing that today, so I'm going to talk to you about something that has been 
on my mind.  I just know how you like it when a woman speaks her mind.  ARE YOU ?, 
like what the hell does that team name even mean?  Are you going all Master Yoda on 
us, 'STONE FREE, ARE YOU ?'  Or is it like, 'U MAD, BRO!?!'  Well, are you?  Perhaps, 
it relates some kind of emotion, like how you feel during that THIRD STONE, or when 
you find out that you are STONE FREE.  Anyway, it sure seems like someone has passed a 
few too many stones lately...

                                          -- Vladia
                                             Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SOLVEN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, THE BALROG fought CANDYMAN and gained 19 points and 
contributed to SHADOW LANCERS' 2-2-0.  We should ask PURPLE ARMOR about the thrill of 
victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to 
ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  ARE YOU ? has cause to stand tall, as 
they were SOLVEN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding ARE YOU ? more than any other team we find SHADOW LANCERS.  SOLVEN, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was THE MENTORS GORE's warrior CANDYMAN.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that SOLVEN 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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
