                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not a bad defense, Brandy, but sometimes he who strikes the first blow, meaning
me, gets an edge that can't be overtaken.  It can be a tough trade-off between "heavy
armor of defense, no dodge" and "light and agile on the feet, no armor."

                                        Gulby

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in NIANIA 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, GOLDINA fought EIO 
YUE and gained 28 points and contributed to THE GOLDEN FISH's 3-2-0.  EIO YUE has 
lost to GOLDINA, falling 25 points, while helping make PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE a 3-2-0 
turn.  Well done, NIANIA, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Perhaps GULBY is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  BUBBA BENDER challenged 
for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE GOLDEN FISH's warrior.  
We should ask BUBBA BENDER about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he'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 Jim's Tap Room 
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.  I also notice that the HISTORICAL 
WUSSES stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on NIANIA, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided HISTORICAL WUSSES stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Whatever bright future ADSA JENSEN may have had, it's all history now.  The 
manager of PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE has lost a promising 5-0-0 warrior.  Jim's Tap Room 
declares a free round for LORINDA and all of THE GOLDEN FISH, for having revenged 
HISTORICAL WUSSES' IMMANUEL KANT for killing one of their comrades.  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.   
     I like this place, NIANIA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in NIANIA 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

Eio Yue -- So!  You're going to be one of THOSE boys, are you?  I might have known!
The sooner you get away from here to the Isle, the happier I'll be. -- Grond
P.S.  Well done, really.
P.P.S.  Just remember that *I* am no golem and shouldn't be lumped with them even if
some of my teammates are of different origins.

Bubba Bender -- Oh, ouch!  I'm bent, okay, totally bent!  No need to do that again.
-- Goldina
P.S.  Besides, when I get stunned, the voices come back into my head, and I don't
much care for that.

Enrko Fermi -- Not wussy enough for me. -- Lorinda

Eio -- Or maybe it's (whispering) the golem-master. -- Goldina, looking fearfully
over her shoulder

Bubba -- Sure.  I'll bring the potato salad. -- Gulby
