                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good day all, It is me your Slashtastic, mega frog-monster, sexy dude Korynn
Frog.  Well, this won't be a long column, but I will say I am honored to sit up here.
It will likely only be for the one turn as now Grimm has ordered I sit out until the
Oct Grand Tourney.  If it was up to me I would fight, because I am one nasty fighting
froggy.
     So, I am hoping my mate Kane Toad takes the perch next turn.  Jorja he
apologizes for the challenge last turn.  He was so limited and it seemed to be a good
skill learning match up, Grimm is not the D/C type, please forgive him.
     Have a great turn all, and may your blade not touch any frogs this turn.

Korynn Frog, Slashing Frog Master

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RIZTAB this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
DREAMERS is pushed out of top team by THE UNDEAD, who came from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this 
turn.  GRUBSTAKER has lost to ARIGNOTE, falling 14 points, while helping make SWEET 
MAGIC a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, KORYNN 
FROG has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on PROCLUS this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  RIZTAB has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the THE UNDEAD 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RIZTAB, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding THE UNDEAD more than any other team we find KAOS FROGS.  RIZTAB, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was SWEET MAGIC's warrior TAFFY.  More fighters challenged her than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, SPECTER from THE UNDEAD challenged up 22 points 
to fight COLTRANE from the BLUE NOTE stable.  SPECTER perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he bested COLTRANE and ended up with 29 recognition points.   
     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.  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 RIZTAB, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in RIZTAB again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
