                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose you've come here to learn some tidbit of knowledge, some kernel of 
truth about the enigma that is Quiet Loner.  Well, your efforts are in vain.  You will 
learn nothing, and it is only through threat from my highly temperamental manager, 
Angus McSweords, that I write a Duelmaster's Column at all.  He is not a pleasant man, 
as I've stated before, although he enjoys the notion he's propagated of being a 
friendly fellow.  By the time this sentence is complete, I will have fulfilled my 
minimum word quota for this column, again, set forth by my manager.  There's nothing 
here for you.  Go away.  

                                          -- Quiet Loner 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JADE MOUNTAIN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, RON RHINO 
fought RUMBLER and gained 25 points and contributed to U IS FOR UNGULATE's 3-2-0.  
OPRAH OKAPI has lost to JADE GHOST, falling 12 points, while helping make U IS FOR 
UNGULATE a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, QUIET LONER kept SAND 
DANCERS' warrior, CHI HO, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Green Axe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Chi Ho -- And with that, I'll call it a day, and a career. And stop staring at my 
frontage. -- Jina tyl Ray

Jorja -- Thank you. -- Jina tyl Ray

Rumbler -- Are there even temples to Ahringol in Lirith Kai?  There's no telling what 
I'll say during a fight. -- Gothic

To-Fu Backstabber -- Do you find that you must sneak up on tofu? Well, granted, it can 
be deadly, but so deadly you need to sneak up on it and stab it in the back? 
Fascinating. -- Black Ice 

Jina tyl Ray -- And your backage, too. -- Chi Ho

Gothic -- That white face paint is off-putting. -- Rumbler, put off

Full Force -- Have you had an input error? -- Lady Chao

Ah, standbys!  We love 'em. -- Hotdog and Han Ki

Jina -- A genuine cheer for someone who can stop fighting and just... live. -- Chi Ho

Quiet Loner -- I always wanted to do impersonations. -- Chi Ho
P.S.  And if I'm going to have an entendre, I definitely want it doubled.
