                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know Xenoria!  How could I fight her if I don't know her?  I thought she
was, I don't know, maybe the one who was coming to tell me about a different way to
fix my hair?  I mean, she did talk about birds' nests.

                                      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, SHIRLEY KNOTT fought 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 20 points and contributed to PSYCHO SQUAD's 2-3-0.  And 
not without some honor, INK AND STEEL now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster 
of TRANSEL.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under 
the table at The Sultan's Tent?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  SEE YA was sent to 
the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Hearty mugs of ale 
were raised in TRANSEL today as SURLY SHIRLEY was bid farewell to a 7-3-0 warrior, 
with CAPTURED ORC of TRANSEL standing silent and pensive.  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.  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ink and Steel -- Hey!  You said you were going to write the story of my life, and
then you did that?  What the fork?  Listen, you!  Come out here in the alley behind
the arena and explain to me what the fork you thought you were doing! -- Sweet Freddy

Shandy -- You call that a DRINK?  You're nuts. -- Lizzie Broadaxe
P.S.  Or a wimp.

The Fratsfa Slave was a waste of my time.  I thought he was going to be a stuck-up
blond, and it turns out he's dark.  Stupid idiot. -- Surly Shirley

Da1 -- I suppose that was inevitable.  I could tell that no one really cared about
me.  Oh, well. -- Ghost of Chelesley
