                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I can't stand Eve and Emma, the pair of them are just too much for any
reasonable person.  But they are my teammates, and I couldn't let this hairy little
dude beat them up, could I?  I mean, I'm a reasonable guy, and I can see getting
ticked at that pair, but there are limits, and a true gentleman doesn't hit a lady.
And Eve is a lady, even if Emma isn't.  So, John Huston must not be a true gentleman.
So, I hit him a couple of times.  It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

                                  Not-A-Nut Jones

                                      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, UPPER DECK fought EVE AND EMMA 
and gained 18 points and contributed to BALTO's 2-0-0.  EVE AND EMMA has lost to 
UPPER DECK, falling 13 points, while helping make PSYCHO SQUAD a 3-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and NOT-A-NUT JONES remains 
TRANSEL's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     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.  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 TRANSEL, 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
