                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now all that stands between me and Champions glory is to live through this final
fight.  Well, that and two prize modified ABs who TV'd Champions at the mail-in and
are going back for seconds.  And about 100 other great warriors.  But who is
counting?
     Good luck in the upcoming tournament, fellow Talcamans.

Baby On Board

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TALCAMA will ever be the same.  And let's see, FROG ZOMBIE fought DAN and 
gained 15 points and contributed to UNDEAD FROGS' 1-0-1.  AARON has lost to GOON 3, 
falling 8 points, while helping make SHEPHERDS a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BABY ON BOARD remains TALCAMA's top warrior 
for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Original Arthur's Last Stand until they win.  
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the RYAN'S HENCHMEN stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided RYAN'S HENCHMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SHEPHERDS.  
Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  SHEPHERDS has lost DAN to the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be 
worried.  What do you expect from 9-8-1?  Is it really true that TALCAMA has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in TALCAMA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TALCAMA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
