                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

The Professor approached his five pupils with fire smoldering in his livid eyes.

"Your performances upon the sands have been pathetic of late," he states vehemently as 
he lets his stare linger upone each of his chagrined charges.  "How do we go from 
Tournament Victors," he declares, deliberately staring down the infamously volatile 
warrior before him known as the Red Viper, "to becoming the butt of our foes' jokes 
here at Arvat Arena?!?!" he exclaims incredulously, his gaze lingering a half second 
longer while looking up at the half-wit warrior who knows how to say only one word -- 
a word which has thus become his name -- Hodor.

"Hodor?" came the confused reply from, well, Hodor.

"Yes, you," was the Prfessor's understanably frustrated, and curt, retort to which he 
added, "and will someone please help Hodor here with some WIT training for a while -- 
at least until we can get a few new words out of him so we won't have to hear 'Hodor" 
over and over again all day long?" pleaded the Professor seeking Strong Belwas' ample 
belly somewhere near no doubt, the camp's cooking supplies.

Having been found, Stong Belwas bellowed back, "I'll elucidate the lad upon the finer 
points of locution, Prof, you can count on me!"

"Can I also count on you to WIN more than one fight out of every dozen, Belwas?" was 
how the Professor ended this meeting...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARVAT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
THE WALKING DEAD, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 9th.  JUDY JUST BITTEN 
has lost to BRIENNE, falling 17 points, while helping make THE WALKING DEAD a 0-3-0 
turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, VENEER has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on DR. KLORD this turn as he ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  ARVAT has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark 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.  GASTROPUB has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ARVAT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided GASTROPUB stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that AQUARIUM HEAD HERB 
from THE WALKING DEAD was ARVAT's most challenged warrior this turn.  DR. KLORD from 
DEVIL ADVOCATES took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 27 points in a 
challenge against AQUARIUM HEAD HERB.  And now nobody knows where AQUARIUM HEAD HERB 
is right now, after giving DR. KLORD 29 points worth of recognition.  As quiet 
chuckles rise behind me.  In a brave attempt, THE KING from IT'S GOOD TO BE... 
challenged up 20 points to fight STEEL GARTEN from the GASTROPUB stable.  THE KING 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat STEEL GARTEN and ended up with 82 
recognition points.  EXTERMINATION of ANGELS OF PAIN had better have a good reason 
for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought EXTERMINATION 
showed great skill and promise when it bested BLOATED BARBARA.  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.  ERRATA made what looks to be a 
tough decision this turn, as they sent BAXTER, with a record of 2-9-0, to BAXTER 
death.  Farewell, his.  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.  Always good to rest in ARVAT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARVAT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
