                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sending this very late, quite possibly will not make it to printing.  So I've
been trying to get Meshach on the throne for several turns and then when I don't try,
he makes it in.  This certainly will help him graduate faster, which is just fine
with me!  I am quite pleased to have another warrior on Talcama's throne.  It has
been a long time and though the arena is nothing like it was the last time, this is
the one throne I'd rather hold than any other in Alastari.

Until next time,

 -- Assurnasirbanipal, manager of Meshach, who is too busy training to write a column

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TALCAMA will ever be the same.  The SEA DOGS guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, CRISIS fought JAMESON and gained 10 points and contributed to 
OF WOLF AND MAN II's 4-0-0.  CARBONATED MILK has lost to RANDOM, falling 8 points, 
while helping make CENTER FOR OLDS a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn MESHACH challenged SUSHI 
in what was TALCAMA's Title bout.  And all eyes were on SUSHI this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  TALCAMA has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Original Arthur's Last 
Stand uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  OF WOLF AND MAN II has cause to 
stand tall, as they were TALCAMA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And avoiding OF WOLF AND MAN II more than any other team we find 
SHEPHERDS.  TALCAMA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was OF WOLF AND MAN II's warrior HURIN.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, A'S SPECIAL BLEND 
from SHEPHERDS challenged up 20 points to fight HARBOR MASTER from the SEA DOGS 
stable.  A'S SPECIAL BLEND perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by 
HARBOR MASTER and ended up with 37 recognition points.   
     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.   
     I like this place, TALCAMA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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
