                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Slow week for me.  Sandwiched around my fight with Convicted Assassin I just
hung around and was staring at the calendar.  Going a bit stir crazy.  It's not much
fun not having to fight anyone of merit and just training and training and...
training.
     On the plus I WAS able to start my memoires, unfortunately I don't have much to
write about...
     Looks like I'll get another stand in this week, too.
     Ah well.  I should graduate soon enough!

Catch you next time.

Lucky Devil

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MALCORN 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 GREENWARDENS is pushed out of top team by CRUCIAL TAUNT, who came from 
2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  The CRUCIAL TAUNT guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, AXEL fought TREESHADOW and gained 13 points and contributed to 
CRUCIAL TAUNT's 4-1-0.  TREESHADOW has lost to AXEL, falling 11 points, while helping 
make GREENWARDENS a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and LUCK DEVIL remains MALCORN'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 Drake's 
Barbecue until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BLIND MELON has cause to stand 
tall, as they were MALCORN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding BLIND MELON more than any other team we find THE DEVIL'S OWN.  
MALCORN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, GREENWARDENS has lost 
BLACKOAK, and MALCORN is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in MALCORN, 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
