                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I was able to defeat an Elderly Woman.  Why does this not sound... manly?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JHELUM this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
PEARL JAM is pushed out of top team by DOGS OF WAR, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 
this turn.  And let's see, SHATTER fought SUN TREE and gained 15 points and 
contributed to LEGIONS' OF HELL's 1-0-0.  SUN TREE has lost to SHATTER, falling 9 
points, while helping make DOGS OF WAR a 2-3-0 turn.  We should ask KID KOALA about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now 
the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  DOGS OF WAR has cause to stand tall, as they were JHELUM's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding DOGS 
OF WAR more than any other team we find LEGIONS' OF HELL.  JHELUM, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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 JHELUM has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 JHELUM and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
