                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It seems that I am to graduate, and Jorja's carrying on terribly.  She says it
means she'll have to recruit some new members for this team--high time, if you ask
me--and she "hates recruiting."  Bah.  I would be tempted to say, "If she hates
recruiting, she should try fighting," but it's my understanding that she DID try
fighting, graduated, and left four dead behind her.  Not the record of someone I want
to criticize too loudly.
     Hmm, quarterstaff, mod/low.  Never tried any of that.

                                    Concussion

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRANSEL will ever be the same.  And let's see, ACOLYTE 1 fought THETAS TOMAN 
and gained 19 points and contributed to GOLDEN DAWN's 4-1-0.  HEINKEL has lost to 
HAPPY HARRIET, falling 4 points, while helping make GOLDEN DAWN a 4-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CONCUSSION remains TRANSEL's top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     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 TRANSEL and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
