     Hail NIANIA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MENTOR DEMENTOR is pushed 
out of top team by WEIRD STUDENTS, who came from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  The 
WEIRD STUDENTS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SEDAN OF BAN fought 
GWAR and gained 23 points and contributed to THE RUNAROUND's 2-1-0.  GWAR has lost to 
SEDAN OF BAN, falling 18 points, while helping make MENTOR DEMENTOR a 3-1-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, DEPP kept NIANIA's warrior, KHALHUMS DWARF, 
from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at Jim's Tap Room?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  HOMUNCULUS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were NIANIA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided HOMUNCULUS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was MENTOR DEMENTOR.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
THE RUNAROUND's warrior GENERAL PATTERN.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  CORTICAL GIANT, does your manager know 
you're challenging down 19 points to fight GENERAL PATTERN from THE RUNAROUND?  Well, 
will you look at this, CORTICAL GIANT was subdued by GENERAL PATTERN, and HOMUNCULUS 
will have to explain why they made such a challenge in the first place.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in NIANIA, 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
