                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose I should be glad to be fighting managed opponents, and I salute Brave
2 for a job well-attempted and a fight honorably lost, but I would rather graduate.
What's holding this up?  Skills, I suppose.  Of course, any dummy could see that I
have plenty of skill to hold this post, but the Commission is at times a lot dumber
than any dummy.  They probably have a hoop they want me to jump through.

                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DOGS OF WAR is pushed out of top team by TL;DR, who came from 3rd with 
a 3-2-0 this turn.  The KIWI CONNECTION guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, CASSIS fought GERMAINE SHEPPARD and gained 17 points and contributed to KIWI 
CONNECTION's 4-0-0.  GERMAINE SHEPPARD has lost to CASSIS, falling 15 points, while 
helping make DOGS OF WAR a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, PETE 
MASTIFF kept TRIBAL COUNCIL's warrior, BRAVE 2, from claiming the throne.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  Always good to rest in JHELUM, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
