                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well my manager always said I'd never get this high in the rankings.  Pretty
impressive ain't I?  He was so happy he fell off his chair.
     I should soon be leaving this lovely arena and retiring to some farm somewhere
to stud.
     I'm hoping to hold onto this seat until I leave.  I'm sure Vikings has other
thoughts.
     And for Chagan I have to say thanks and I guess 3rd times the charm, eh!  With
the amount of crits I was throwing I'm guessing I found my favored weapon.  I look
forward to slamming it into you again if you're up for yet another rematch.
     So until someone beats me or I graduate I stand most humbly your DuelMaster.

Phlegm

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KOLACT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
VIKINGS is pushed out of top team by ABOMINATION, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this 
turn.  And let's see, LUNELLE MERRIN fought TREMORS and gained 21 points and 
contributed to THE MOONDOGS' 3-2-0.  TREMORS has lost to LUNELLE MERRIN, falling 18 
points, while helping make BACON MAKIN' a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, PHLEGM kept VIKINGS' warrior, CHAGAN, from claiming the throne.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Don 
Corleone's?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that JERRY from TOONS O DOOM was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  Is it really true that KOLACT has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
