                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's great to be back a two year hiatus.  It's even better to be back on the
Iron Throne.
     Congratulations to my friend Morgue who now no longer has to worry about the
specter of age and death as he prepares to head to the Isle.
     Well fought Wren, we certainly gave them a bloody show.

--Varick

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt MALCORN will ever be the same.  And let's see, DUSKBLOOD PUDDING fought SARA 
and gained 14 points and contributed to SHEWISH BUFFET's 2-2-0.  FRIED OGRE has lost 
to LITTLE BITER, falling 11 points, while helping make SHEWISH BUFFET a 2-2-0 turn.  
And all eyes were on AXEL this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
MALCORN has a new victor!  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  CRUCIAL TAUNT 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 CRUCIAL TAUNT more than any other team we find TERMINUS.  
MALCORN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  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.   
     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 you see my quill in MALCORN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
