                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You tried to overbear me, Bradley, and I don't let guys get away with that.
Hence me taking the time to beat you up one side and down the other.  It's important
to be thorough.

                                   Bellona Chist

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ALJAFIR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  On their very first turn, ALMOST FAMOUS had a 
5-0-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ALJAFIR.  And 
let's see, CORNBREAD STUFFING fought THE USEROUS MERCHANT and gained 23 points and 
contributed to ALMOST THANKSGIVING's 3-2-0.  SENLUM NOSH has lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, 
falling 5 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending hers title 
for another turn, BELLONA CHIST kept ALJAFIR's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming 
the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier 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.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ALJAFIR and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ALJAFIR again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
