     Hail KOLACT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THE MOONDOGS is pushed out 
of top team by THE ABYSMALS, who came from 3rd with a 4-1-1 this turn.  And let's 
see, DEVIL GIRL fought THIAOO TRIGG and gained 18 points and contributed to 
SPRINGBORN's 3-2-0.  THIAOO TRIGG has lost to DEVIL GIRL, falling 16 points, while 
helping make THE ABYSMALS a 4-1-1 turn.  And all eyes were on LIRVEL MOORN this turn 
as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  KOLACT has a new victor!  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SPRINGBORN has cause to stand tall, as they 
were KOLACT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding SPRINGBORN more than any other team we find THE ABYSMALS.  KOLACT, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was SPRINGBORN's warrior BAYFRONT BETTY.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Kudos go out to DEVIL GIRL this 
turn, for revenging SPRINGBORN's bloodfeud against THE ABYSMALS' warrior THIAOO 
TRIGG.  Well done.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Persistent Beggar -- Hey Be-draggled...wait up. -- Zapette

Nestor Ordh -- Ahhhh, an off-hand filleting.  Hee Hee Hee. -- B. Bob

Icarus -- The answer's obvious; more practice time, less hanging out on the piers
time.  Not as much fun, but compared to losing.... -- Bayfront Betty

Thiaoooo... Trigg -- A short brief acquaintance. -- Zappette

Sir Cumference -- Well, you certainly fought circles around me that time.  Not that
I'm surprised, I've seen you at work! -- Persea Quell
P.S.  FIVE skills!  Amazingly generous, my thanks.

Quiznos -- Not today, I have a headache. -- Cynica
P.S.  No, really.

And I WOULD have said no to the Kung-Fu Master, but elves intimidate me.  I know,
dumb of me, but there it is. -- Lirvel Moorn

Buffalo Bob -- (rearing back in dismay)  No, I will NOT "come out tonight and dance
by the light of the moon"!  The very idea! -- Nestor Ordh, conservative to the bone

Bayfront Betty -- (suppressing a snicker)  That IS quite a bay window you have in
front there.  I bet it makes it hard for you to stand up straight, huh? -- Icarus

Galopede -- Dudette!  This is awful! -- Persea Quell, designated sympathizer

Buffalo Bob -- Hard on the teeth, though. -- Nestor Ordh

Zapette -- Looks like somebody zapped YOU, chicquita. -- Steeltooth Tarak, Beggar
Extraordinaire

Dawn Abanar -- Pathetic. -- Danno, sort-of-Convicted Thief

Golpe Mortal -- Enjoy it while you can, we have ways of getting even. -- Steeltooth
Tarak, Beggar Extraordinaire

Espinoso -- Ha.  There are alleys everywhere, and the arena values me enough to
resurrect me. -- Danno, sort-of-Convicted Thief

Odioso -- (sniff)  Well named. -- Vardo Korlete of Mordant

Lirvel Moorn -- That was, I suppose, an adequate performance, but if you would do
WELL, you should come study under me. -- Shuleszar of Xochithlan, Master of Kung-Fu
