                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, forget the last column I wrote.  I don't believe losing to Virginal Concubine
makes an arena proud of their Duelmaster.

In fact, I almost went home and ended it all by eating a poisoned rat I had laying
around.  Then I decided Birds of Prey are only successful on like twenty percent of
their hunts so I figured I should give it another go.

Besides it now should just make Woofer feel worse losing to someone who lost to
Virginal Concubine.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TOBIR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as PLAYPEN is pushed out of top team by RAPTORS, who came from 4th with a 3-1-0 this 
turn.  RAPTORS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, LARG 
GENIUS - 11 WT fought WHITE FANG and gained 12 points and contributed to THE DEATH 
SQUAD's 2-3-0.  WHITE FANG has lost to LARG GENIUS - 11 WT, falling 10 points, while 
helping make THE DOGHOUSE a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, 
PEREGRINE kept TOBIR's warrior, VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, from claiming the throne.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory 
Tavern 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.  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was PLAYPEN's warrior SIPPYCUP SAM.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  CRACK BABY of THE DEATH SQUAD had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought CRACK 
BABY showed great skill and promise when it bested PAMPER PACKER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The Victory Tavern declares a free round for SERGEANT and all of RAPTORS, 
for having revenged PLAYPEN's TANTRUM for killing one of their comrades.  Is it 
really true that TOBIR has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TOBIR and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TOBIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

All -- Well going 1-4 on my second turn has brought me back to earth, I guess this
game is just as hard as it used to be.  Cheers to all who kicked my butt this turn.
-- Warden

All -- The funeral for Goshawk will be held in my bathroom by the toilet at 11:00 pm
Friday if any want to send condolences before he is flushed. -- Warden

Golgi Aparatus -- I guess I'm just not mechanically minded.  I don't understand you
at all. -- Andillia
P.S.  Except that I'd better stay away from you.

Sippycup Sam -- That's weird.  The idea of your name, I mean.  But managers are like
that, never thinking what it might do to a warrior's psyche to go around under the
burden of a weird name.  I think we should stage a protest.  For instance, my actual
name is Bill.  What's yours? -- Woofer

Cardnal -- Wow, you don't LOOK redheaded, but have you ever got the redheaded temper!
-- Chichi-Hooey
P.S.  Of course, if I could see you without that hawk's mask, who knows, your hair
might be as red as anything.

Pamper Packer -- Oh, dear. -- White Fang

Tippi Turtle -- (sigh)  That was a hint, right?  Next time, tip you over.  Okay, I'll
remember.  But let's just make sure the "next time" is way down the road. -- Wurf

Warden -- You OBJECT to doing well on your first turn back?  Why? -- Leeta
P.S.  Yes, okay, Small Arena Syndrome is the pits, but it's one of those unpleasant
facts of life, like trash pickup at some ungodly early hour of the morning.  Live
with it, learn to love it.

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
