                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is an unexpected position I find myself in. The big H is the one who was 
planning to fight for the throne. I fully expect HEB to come back with a specially 
designed strategy to take me out. I can only hope for the best and see if all of my 
intensive meditation on my scumming techniques will pay off. We will see what happens, 
wouldn't mind another turn here as the food is of much better quality here than in our 
guild house.

                                          -- Crackerman

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAL SHANG!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, HEMORRHAGE fought MASTER OF THE EDGE and gained 9 points 
and contributed to KILLER TUNES' 3-2-0.  MOFFIT has lost to NAMASTE Y'ALL, falling 2 
points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  Well done, DAL SHANG, the 
Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps CRACKERMAN is not as 
thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  HIGH-END BUN challenged for the Duelmastership 
this turn, attempting to dethrone KILLER TUNES' warrior.  We should ask HIGH-END BUN 
about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, 
it'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 Blazing Unicorn until they win.  Maybe?  
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  KILLER TUNES has cause to stand 
tall, as they were DAL SHANG's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding KILLER TUNES more than any other team we find TMM 
EXPERIMENTS 23.  DAL SHANG, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in DAL SHANG, 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
