                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well it looks like the Cat got someone's tongue!  It brings me joy to know that
I was able to accomplish what no challenger has in done since Flopear and that was
unseat the Turtle.  Alas, the celebration is also a wake for those that fell.  I
salute you, Fustigate, and will be seeking revenge for your death!  I'm coming for
you, Penrich.  Consider this a welcome back to Tobir gift.  First round at the
Deeproot is on me!

-- Frisky

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TOBIR will ever be the same.  The OTAGO HIGHLANDERS guild has had a 3-1-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, STALLONE fought CRACK BABY and gained 18 points and 
contributed to ACTION HEROS' 1-3-0.  HOCK has lost to MAIA, falling 11 points, while 
helping make THE DEATH SQUAD a 2-3-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between 
PENRICH and our Duelmaster FRISKY, making a Bloodfeud.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and FRISKY remains TOBIR's top warrior for another turn.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Deeproot Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE DEATH SQUAD 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TOBIR, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided THE DEATH SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was F 
WORDS.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Congratulations go out to F WORDS, with FRISKY revenging a bloodfeud 
against PENRICH of OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob 
the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TOBIR, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
