                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First off, Spot and yer stinking clan of dogs.  I be no filthy human, I be a
Dwarf, only the finest creatures ever known to Ghea!  Mytori Iron Hand knew what he
was doing when HE brough us to this land!  I be a drinkin to that--Hear!  I be seeing
Allawalla and I went to call 'em to the sands, but he be more interested in fighting
beggers and vermin, so I'll sit here on me throne and continue to be Aradi's #1.

May the sands cot the bood in our veins!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARADI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for JAWS?  RED DOG 
GANG's proud of him after beating HAPPY PEASANT and getting 15 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  KITANA SUKI got smashed by VETERAN MERCENARY, and lost 5 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in ALLAWALLA's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't ZOLO fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of RED DOG GANG must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what THE ELITE's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from RED DOG GANG, that's fer sher.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARADI ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ARADI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                                 JASPER GULCH:  DM 85

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
