                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finally!  I guess Mad Mannequin is not so mad after all, he recognized my
importance to Mordant's alleys and the need for me to graduate.  Plus, he wasn't good
enough to defeat me.  The fourteenth win WAS what I needed, and I receive my
graduation notice at ninety-four fights.  Although I was kind of looking forward to
hitting one hundred fights and being "sandbagged" out.  Still, why wait?  I could've
gotten killed before I hit one hundred!  Unacceptable.

                                   Random Maniac

P.S.  And I still don't have any ratings.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORDANT!  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 
STEEL LEGION, whose 0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 7th.  SERPENTS' HOLD 
stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BOA fought DELISE ORM 
and gained 19 points and contributed to SERPENTS' HOLD's 3-1-0.  ERBIN PARNAN has 
lost to RAFFI THE GARROTE, falling 19 points, while helping make LOW ROAD 3 a 3-2-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, ABYSSINIAN now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of MORDANT.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that MUTANT BLOWBY from GOD SQUAD was MORDANT's most challenged warrior this turn.  
In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), WHITE LIGHTNING 
challenged MASKED MURDERER II today, facing a 29 difference in recognition.  And 
though WHITE LIGHTNING lost to MASKED MURDERER II, the valiant attempt earned him 1 
worth of recognition.  Foolhardiness can sometimes pay.   
     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.  Is it really true that MORDANT has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORDANT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Hail to Random Maniac!  Duelmaster!  Alley Defender!  And now... LORD PROTECTOR!
Congratulations! -- Assur

Tien-Shu of Genrai tried to practice his Kung-Fu on me, but I told him, this is not
the time to practice.  You should have practiced YESTERDAY. -- Shotgun Daddy

Shotgun Daddy -- He was practicing for his fight with me, I guess.  You should have
hit him harder. -- Chelsea Noren

I guess the Maniac had Mad Mannequin all cowed.  Or buffaloed.  One of those bovines,
anyway. -- Erbin Parnan

This Raffi the Garrote is a vegetarian!  I bet you didn't know that.  Cereals are
good, of course, but you MUST have animal protein to go with them, and lots of it. --
Cereal Killer

Boa -- Ha!  I tied you in knots. -- Black Bonker
P.S.  Very small knots.

S... Mc -- Not today, I have a headache. -- Delise Orm

Captain Eloy is a pussycat.  Putty in my hands. -- Allana Lorimer

I'm going to sneak up behind Black Devin, in an alley, maybe, and spray him with
WHITE PAINT.  So there. -- Beltran Moss

Mary Mary -- You weren't contrary at all.  I like that in a woman. -- Masked Murderer
