                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My owner had me trotting out on to the arena sands not with the goal of
dominance or success, but for lands.  Farming is not an easy business, even harder
for small farmers in today's world.  But with my ascension, my owner gains land and
no longer is beholden to the banks.  We can farm in peace and I get to retire fully
for my efforts and risk on the sands.  Perhaps I'll even get to sire a young colt or
two!  It's been fun!

-- Horse

Notes from Assur:
Horse's vitals: 15-3-20-15-9-7-15 B poor/great.  Current skills are at:
     22(+3)/8/24/7/9/18.
Faves came out HI/MO QS.  It always is a bit of a surprise to see who survives and
who does not.  If I'd been guessing one of my bashers here to survive and one to die,
I'd have guessed wrong.  (Dog's stats were: 11-9-18-15-15-5-11).  Would have been
nice to get both of these giants out, but it wasn't to be.  I still have a Tractor
that will be running in tourneys, but that is a different story.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE MIDDLE WAY 5, since 
SHADY LADIES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MOODY JUDY win a fight and gain 22 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat SAIRY WELLS and SAIRY WELLS lost 19 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  HORSE Dark Arena Challenged SHEWISH GIANT for KALTOS' 
Title this turn, and guess what happened?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
SHEWISH GIANT killed the Duelmaster, HORSE, leaving ON THE FARM in mourning.  This 
incredible death has allowed, I might add, WILOV VAUGN from FLAGG'S FIST to ascend to 
the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KALTOS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  KINGS BLADES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SHADY LADIES 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KALTOS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in KALTOS to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of KALTOS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
