                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Farewell Caleam, after visiting the Dark Arena this turn, I will be enjoying an
eternal retirement in Home Guard.  For those who care about such things, I'm a 9-13-
7-17-11(1)-15-13 Striker, with a Master in Decise (+3), AdExs in Attack (Mode) and
Init (Mode or +1),and an Expert in Riposte (+1).  The commission reports my
favourites as the Broadsword (Never tried it), with a Moderate/Very Low rhythm, the
Lunge Tactic (never tried it), and learns attack skills.
     Did you know I'm on a 14 fight winning streak here?  At one point I was 1-5,8,
and then the boss let me try an Apprentices tourney, and I haven't looks back since
then.

Orlando
Here To Phoenix
5 time Duelmaster of Caleam

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CALEAM.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  I doubt many are 
quaking in their boots, but NIGHTSISTERS comes out of nowhere to get 3-1-1.  What 
does the future hold?  Watch this space...  NIGHTSISTERS had cause to celebrate, 
after VARIS got 14 points by beating FRIENDLY CONSTABLE.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to SILVER MIKE.  
(Discrete enough, COLORADO SPRINGS?) Duelmaster ORLANDO from HERE TO PHOENIX is going 
for the gold, as it Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SPYMASTER.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by SPYMASTER, of 
DARK ARENA, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome CALEAM's Number 1.  Word has it one 
team in CALEAM is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in CALEAM avoid MEDAL OF HONOR GN.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, HERE TO PHOENIX scurried away from MEDAL OF HONOR GN.  Oh, the 
shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe ORLANDO 
of HERE TO PHOENIX money and had written it off, take note:  it'S BACK FROM THE DARK 
ARENA!!!  AND it'S MAD!!!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed 
body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in CALEAM would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Two-three.  Not impressive, although Mike did defeat his standby, at least.  For the
rest, well, we TOLD Lottie not to take her cards to Colorado, but she didn't listen.
And I'm definitely not going to Phoenix if I have to travel by way of Orlando! --
