                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Young Peter is unhappy with the result of his encounter, but it was, perhaps,
for the best.  One must know one's weaknesses, and he had not taken sufficient
account of that particular problem.  He will recover from it, never fear.

                                        Joseph

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHELUM 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, RUNNING DEER fought 
RED HAMMER and gained 21 points and contributed to TRIBAL COUNCIL's 3-0-0.  RED 
HAMMER has lost to RUNNING DEER, falling 17 points, while helping make DOGS OF WAR a 
3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and JOSEPH remains 
JHELUM's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  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, JHELUM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in JHELUM, 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

Of all the dirty tricks!  The Venomous Vixen is actually a Venomous Bitch, and she
was in heat.  And I'm a dog, and, well, I got distracted.  Really distracted.  Damn.
-- Pete Mastiff

These Kung-Fu nuts just irritate the liver out of me.  Always so damned superior
about not needing swords!  Wait'll they see how much good it does 'em to be quick
with their hands when someone slips 'em a little poison, eh? -- Lovarno

Well, I can understand Lovarno's annoyance, but poison?  I don't think so. -- Red
Hammer

The Ambitious Guard was just putty in my hands. -- Mat'ari

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
