                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Congrats on the invite Gold Dubloon.  Not bad for a 'two-pense" eh? *grin*
Enjoy your retirement.  You've earned it.  Applications for employment are still
being accepted.  Meanwhile I now get to sit, watch and wait.  I hate waiting.  I'm a
fighter.  It's what I do.  And now I'm told that I might be waiting until next
Summer.  Rumor has it that next Summer the FT2F tourney may be in Chicago.  If this
turns out to be true my manager wants to have as many guys prepped as he can.
Because he will most definately be attending.

                       Farewell for now.

                            Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt WILLAF will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as PUNNY AMINALS is pushed out of top team by GOLDEN GLADIATORS, who came from 3rd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, ASHTON fought GOLDEN FLASH and gained 24 
points and contributed to AIMER'S INC's 2-3-0.  EVEBRINGER has lost to GOLDEN GIRL, 
falling 14 points, while helping make SHADOWMONGERS a 0-2-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between MOONSINGER and our Duelmaster WELL DON, making a 
challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and WELL DON remains 
WILLAF's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  GOLDEN GLADIATORS has cause to 
stand tall, as they were WILLAF's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided GOLDEN GLADIATORS stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was PANDORA'S CARDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that HORI BULL from PUNNY AMINALS was WILLAF'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?  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in WILLAF and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in WILLAF again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
