     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZENSU this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
XCOM ALPHA is pushed out of top team by THROW MAFIA, who came from 0th with a 5-0-1 
this turn.  On their very first turn, THROW MAFIA had a 5-0-1, and with this kind of 
luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ZENSU.  And let's see, BLAKE fought 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 16 points and contributed to THROW MAFIA's 5-0-1.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SUPER ROBIN remains ZENSU's top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ZENSU, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
