                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So I got to defend my title and now I graduate.  Been a LONG time coming.
     I see Chagan gets to graduate also.  See, all it took was me beating you
senseless twice to graduate.
     Well, have fun all battling for the top spot next turn.  I'm off to try my luck
in the Dark Arena.

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.  And let's see, MOON-EYE fought CHAGAN and gained 
22 points and contributed to THE MOONDOGS' 2-3-0.  FOOTLOOSE has lost to THE GRINCH, 
falling 10 points, while helping make BACON MAKIN' a 1-3-0 turn.  Well done, KOLACT, 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps PHLEGM is not as 
thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between WURM KIN 
and our Duelmaster PHLEGM, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  Defending his title for 
another turn, PHLEGM kept DARK ARENA's warrior, WURM KIN, from claiming the throne.  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
Don Corleone's?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ABOMINATION 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 
ABOMINATION more than any other team we find VIKINGS.  KOLACT, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  DEMON of ABOMINATION had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DEMON 
showed great skill and promise when he bested LUNELLE MERRIN.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  The grave that ABOMINATION had dug 
for PHLEGM may yet be filled with the body of WURM KIN.  Seldom are the likes of this 
to be seen.  PHLEGM lives still!  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.  Always good to rest in KOLACT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Chagan -- Well, I guess I was wrong on my favorite weapon.  It was a warhammer, not
the mace.  I was all upset I so enjoyed pounding you into a bloody pulp with my mace.
-- Phlegm<BR>

Moon-Eye -- I thought I had you when your first short spear snapped.  Oh, well,
thanks for the learns. -- Demon

Footloose -- You must have a ton of attack skills.  Most people never lay a hand (or
weapon) on me in a fight.  Results are the same... WIN!!! -- Goldilocks

Ferrin Mondor -- Are you trying to kill people?  Or just me??? -- The Grinch

Simoon Terrat -- Take that.  You might want to reconsider your weapon of choice. --
Wizards!

DM Gods -- I hope my new roll up is +13 (or better), too.  PLEASE!!! -- Chase

     It is to laugh. -- RUG #45983

The Grinch -- Aw, you aren't so bad. -- Ferrin Mondor

Demon -- They've got a demon for an arenamaster up in Tobir, but I guess he's no
relation? -- Moon-Eye

Flatliners -- I like my lines billowy. -- Lia Hobern

Tremors -- Would that be... "Three Mors"?  If so, not ideal planning.  Two, or better
four, mors. -- Lunelle Merrin

Wizards! -- Necromancers are worse. -- Simoon Terrat

Goldilocks -- Good.  That is as it should be. -- Simoon Terrat

Our congratulations to Phlegm and Chagan. -- Jorja and the Moon Dogs
