                             Notes from the arena champ.

     M. Chardinee manages to lose with speed and style.  I like that in an opponent.

                                   Kovaramann Voth

                                      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.  And let's see, MELANDON SORN fought 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and gained 17 points and contributed to GAMES LIBRARY's 5-0-0.  
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KOVARAMANN VOTH remains 
OSKSI's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Elefont uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

It will be interesting to see whether we fight this week.  I wouldn't be surprised if
no one shows up. -- Jorja, Games Library

Honestly, these jocks!  The Veteran Mercenary, whichever one he was, I understand
there are a lot of them out there looking for a little spare change (aren't we all!),
seemed so astonished to lose.  When will they figure out that fighting in an arena is
a whole different matter than fighting on a field of battle or whatever his specialty
was. -- Tarobinz Maur

Unfortunately, my Mercenary was paying attention to your fight and came out better
prepared.  I hate it when that happens. -- Melandon Sorn

What did I ever do to Elder Ironshoe of Khalhums that he should treat me so rudely?
-- Elvorn Marslan

Whirling Inselberg -- I bet you wear yourself out way before a glaciar can come along
and flatten you down. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
