                             Notes from the arena champ.

This is unexpected and who knows when I'll get to sit on this throne again so I
thought I'd tell you how I ended up as a gladiator.  I was hired on as a sparring
partner for Terminus, or more correctly a target dummy, as my role was more to give
them a target to swing at.  I managed to remain on my feet while the 'real' warriors
collapsed from exhaustion swinging at me.  My manager figured I could do the same
thing for real on the sands.  Dummy to Duelmaster--who would have guessed.

-- Quasil, Terminus' first Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt MALCORN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DARK CREATION is pushed out of top team by TERMINUS, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, THE WITCH-KING fought LYLYANNA and gained 25 
points and contributed to THE BLACK RIDERS' 1-0-0.  LYLYANNA has lost to THE 
WITCH-KING, falling 19 points, while helping make DARK CREATION a 1-4-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, QUASIL kept GREENWARDENS' warrior, MOSSROCK, 
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!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  GREENWARDENS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were MALCORN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided GREENWARDENS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
DARK CREATION.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that WIND RIDER 
from GREENWARDENS was MALCORN's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that MALCORN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, MALCORN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MALCORN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Mossrock -- Why were you telling me to ask you for mercy in minute 11?  Right after
half the crowd left.  Was that supposed to be reverse psychology or something? --
Quasil

Wendigo -- Once again Miyamoto beats a warrior I couldn't.  And again I have to put
up with him walking around making the #1 sign.  -- Avery

Lylyanna -- Not sure what happened there.  Whatever happened it was painful. -- Avery

Stump -- That was my favorite Halberd. -- Morgue

Arenamaster Landon -- Why was I turned away from the sands at the last minute.  I
know I registered to fight? -- Varick

Quasil -- Your name reminds me of something I should probably be taking for this
uneasiness in my gut.  Being hit in said gut several times didn't help, either.
Euwh. -- Mossrock
P.S.  But learning three skills was a rush.  I wouldn't mind doing THAT again.

Thule -- Huh, land beyond the north wind, right?  (shiver)  Cold when you're around!
-- Wind Rider
P.S.  What I want to know is, who's giving those Canadian air masses visas?

Morgue -- Not today, buster brown. -- Stump

An Ambitious Guard?  Ridiculous!  There should be enough managed gladiators here that
the standbys can sleep in. -- Thistledown

Marduk -- Hmm.  I don't think I was ready to take on a god. -- Redthorn
P.S.  I might try a goddess, though, since the Commission has noted that I'm
amazingly attractive.
