                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Naturally, we couldn't have a mere Ambitious Guard as Duel2Dude.  Considering
which, I did my best, and it was good enough, even with the large numbers of
gladiators who have rushed to not fight today.  Pathetic, guys.  Just us and the
pasta.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in OSKSI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The OUR HIGHEST HONOR 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, SOLDIER 2 fought VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 21 
points and contributed to OUR HIGHEST HONOR's 5-0-0.  We should ask SOLDIER #3 about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now 
the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Elefont?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that OSKSI 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.  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

Dammit!  I TOLD people the Dangerous Criminal was dangerous!  But did anybody LISTEN?
Did they get RID of that killer?  NO!  And you see what comes of it?  It's all YOUR
fault, all of you! -- Ghost of Timaurn Voth

Spaghetti -- Marinara sauce is the key. -- Maur Tolidar
P.S.  With garlic, mind you.  Lots of garlic.  And basil and oregano.

Ah, the Masked Noble of Osksi.  How exciting.  (yawn) -- Lorins Peln

I cannot connive at embezzlement.  What if it's MY paycheck being embezzled, after
all? -- Kelorinso Vhu

Ah, I was checking to see what styles I had not graduated from this arena, as an aid
to assigning a style to Timaurn's replacement, and I see this is another (I think the
third) in which all ten styles have been graduated.  Satisfactory. -- Nick or Jorja,

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
