                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So, Incisor, you thought you could put the bite on me?  Not today.

                                     Ultorino

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUKAL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  CRIMSON DEATH stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-2-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good 
work, guys!  Defending his title for another turn, ULTORINO kept FANGS' warrior, 
INCISOR, 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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BREWERS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ZUKAL's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided BREWERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DARK 
WARDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that DENTINE from FANGS was 
ZUKAL's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, DD from BREWERS 
challenged up 18 points to fight BLU JON from the BLUE MOON stable.  DD perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he defeated BLU JON and ended up with 55 recognition 
points.   
     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.   
     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

write down? -- Bleu Bonet

Gods, a classic Bad Rollup.  3-7-21-3-12-16-8.  Don't know what I'll do with it, I

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
