                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am Purple Passion.  I deserved to be here all my life.  I was discriminated
against by this whole arena.  I hate you all.
          Purple Passion, Duelmaster and Proud Colorific

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARUAK CITY a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can 
make the difference, as COLORIFIC is pushed out of top team by BULLDOGS, who came 
from 5th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  BULLDOGS stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into 
a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  
And let's see, WOOF WOOF fought VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 18 points and 
contributed to BULLDOGS' 5-0-0.  YELLOW BELLY has lost to FORD PREFECT, falling 9 
points, while helping make COLORIFIC a 2-3-1 turn.  And all eyes were on DORA this 
turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARUAK CITY has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Bulldog Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  IMMORTALS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding IMMORTALS more than any other team we find BULLDOGS.  ARUAK CITY, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was THE HITCHHIKERS' warrior FORD PREFECT.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  MARVIN from THE HITCHHIKERS took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 32 points in a challenge against CANILIV KAT.  Sad to say, 
MARVIN lost to CANILIV KAT, and the attempt ended up costing MARVIN 0 recognition 
points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  THE HITCHHIKERS has sent VOGON 
JELTZ to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  
SINDERELLY has departed ARUAK CITY, leaving CANNIBALZ without their 4-5-0 warrior.  
Question, just what was hers team doing at the taverns last night?  Anyone care to 
tell me why the warriors of ANIMAL FARM haven't revenged the death of PURPLE PELICAN 
against CANILIV KAT of FURRY FURY yet?  Hmmm?  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, ARUAK CITY, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in 
ARUAK CITY again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kennelworth here.  Had many ads, but GMail went defunct on me and they were lost.  Am
not in the mood to recreate all.

     Those lightning pigeons are remarkably delicate.

Congrats to Duelmaster Purple Passion.  (finally)  Duelmasters drink free at The
Bulldog Inn. --  Kennelworth

Grimmy -- Good ides.  Let's get some more here who like "The Andorian Way." --
Kennelworth

the moment, all is fine today.  No telling what's next. -- Jorja

Cherry Chicken -- Silo, forsooth!  You'd do better with a corn crib. -- Harline Flete
