                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Blotto, a slightly different outcome this turn.  Maybe you should go back to
running around with Ultorino, seemed to give you some kind of berserk rage that you
didn't show in this fight.  Not that I want to witness it first hand again, almost
didn't survive it.
     Cannot send out any challenges this turn as my teammate is the only challenger
champ.  So it looks like another random matchup.  I have split with two of you, Blue
Blotto 2-2, Tonka 1-1, and only one matchup with Ultorino 1-0.  Will be interesting
to see who I get.

Till next turn,
Nahtalee

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUKAL will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as THE MONGOLOIDS is pushed out of top team by BLUE MOON, who came from 2nd with a 
2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, BLU JON fought WILYUM and gained 22 points and 
contributed to BLUE MOON's 2-3-0.  WILYUM has lost to BLU JON, falling 15 points, 
while helping make THE MONGOLOIDS a 2-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another 
turn, NAHTALEE kept BLUE MOON's warrior, BLUE BLOTTO, from claiming the throne.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Blue Boar Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the THE MONGOLOIDS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUKAL, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided THE MONGOLOIDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 70'S 
CHILD.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUKAL and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ZUKAL again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ultorino -- Best of three? -- Wilyum

G.I.Joe -- That's a weird looking kung fu grip.  How can you do that for 30 plus
minutes? -- Wilyum

Tonka -- The outcome surprised me as well. -- Steev

Nahtalee -- Ah, much better!  I knew you could do it! -- Blue Blotto

Wilyum -- Ho!  Blotto thinks "the odds will catch up with me," does he?  A fat lot HE
knows about anything.  He's soused all the time anyway.  I am superb, I am
victorious, I am master of all I survey, and I can go into Bent Lane if I want to.
Nobody says he has to come along with me.  HE is the one at risk there, drunken bum
that he is. -- Ultorino

Atari 2600 -- No, I do NOT want you to do that again.  I'm not DONE with my head. --
Blu Jon

This arena must be in real trouble if it can't even hire an Osksi Noble (they're all
broke, by what *I* heard) and has to use a falling-apart golem instead.  Pathetic. --
Bluette

I just don't understand why everyone is so down on Mordant Deserters.  Have you SEEN
Mordant?  I have, and it's an awful place.  ANYONE with sense would desert. -- Tiko
