                             Notes from the arena champ.

So I made it to the top spot again.  I will try to keep it a little longer this time,
but here in Willaf it is tough.  I will wish all warriors and manager luck in the
upcoming tournament.

                          Zigadenus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail WILLAF!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MAREY D'NUIT fought SILENCE IS GOLDEN and gained 13 points and 
contributed to PUNNY AMINALS' 4-1-0.  SILENCE IS GOLDEN has lost to MAREY D'NUIT, 
falling 15 points, while helping make GOLDEN GLADIATORS a 0-2-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ZIGADENUS remains WILLAF's top warrior 
for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     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 PUNNY AMINALS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on WILLAF, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding PUNNY AMINALS more than any other team we find GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  WILLAF, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
