                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I suppose a cat might be a "wolfsbane," though it would have to be a
formidable feline.  Well fought, well lost.  Though I am not your secret admirer, I
would be glad to offer you a complementary ticket to the next opera.  I'm not sure
what it will be, there seems to be some, ah, vigorous debate in the Opera Guild.  Pot
luck.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SUNSET!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as NOMADIC TRIBE is pushed out 
of top team by GRIM FANDANGO, who came from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for DEATH MOB 4, whose 
0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 10th.  PENTAGONAL PINK stable has parlayed 
this turn's 3-2-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd 
place.  Good work, guys!  The GRIM FANDANGO guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves 
to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And 
let's see, FOORMAN fought GOLDENBEARD and gained 25 points and contributed to LIGHT 
BRIGADE's 3-2-0.  GOLDENBEARD has lost to FOORMAN, falling 19 points, while helping 
make SEA DOGS a 2-1-0 turn.  Well done, SUNSET, the Duelmaster was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Perhaps DJININSKI is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  
BULLWINKLE challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone SWORD 
OPERA's warrior.  And not without some honor, BULLWINKLE now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of SUNSET.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at Cagliostro's Castle?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  NOMADIC TRIBE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SUNSET's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided NOMADIC TRIBE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was GRIM FANDANGO.  Anyone surprised?  SLYTHR of GRIM FANDANGO had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought SLYTHR 
showed great skill and promise when he bested CHIANG PAO.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  SCOUT has departed SUNSET, leaving LIGHT BRIGADE without their 10-12-0 
warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in SUNSET again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ziggy -- Nice column!  The Old Man says my name came from an obscure book that he
named his second Sunset team after (The Borribles), but that's not what I tell the
ladies....  ;) -- Vulge the Ever Popular

Challenger Champions -- All right, I'm sure you all want to see me gone as bad or
worse than I want to be gone, so if you'd all be so kind as to just clear the way,
give me a shot at the departing opera star, and we'll see if a turn or two on the
throne can get me outa here...much obliged! -- Vulge the Recognized

Whitman -- My apologies, Walt, didn't realize you were queen of the kiddie pool.  If
you can't stand the sight of blood, maybe you should hang it up and just wait outside
the arena with the other wussies while the men do their fighting. -- Nevermoor

Breakspere -- Ahh, it seems you may have stumbled onto something...see, the spears
almost always break, so.... -- Stay Gold

Scout -- That didn't go NEARLY as well as last time.... -- Bledd

Duelmaster Djininski -- Congrats on the throne and your graduation!! -- Grim Fandango

Hammett -- That's my name.  Don't wear it out.  NYAH!  You really shouldn't be so
cocky. -- Dick

Secret Admirer -- So...which one of you tough boys is the lucky guy? -- Graham

SUNSETlers -- AH!  Good to be back here to support the PP boys.  Been busy resettling
in a new encampment.  Know you all missed me like the plague.  (groans)  What?  Too
soon? -- Captain Billy

Slythr -- Hmmmm.  Maybe I'll have better luck when next we meet. -- Graham

Tengri Khan -- Glad you didn't "bury" me, but you could have at least taught me
something. -- Reed

Dante Furioso -- Ummmm....  Did I catch you napping? -- Rock

Ursa Minor -- Are you still aiming your blow in the infirmary? -- Fred

Rossmont -- Perhaps you and Ursa Minor should compare aiming notes. -- Dick

Djininski -- The title is yours for this turn.  Congrats on good fight, the title and
graduation.  The time has come to try your song on the isle. -- Ziggy

Moose Fodder -- That was quick. -- Bullwinkle

Kano Clan -- Wow.  The clan is harsh, both of the 20 win scum end up night fighting?
How many years did you put into those two?  I hope it wasn't just his inability to
tackle the moose. -- Nomad and his Tribe

Fred -- Oh, now that is a little embarrassing.  Your record isn't very good, but you
sure made me look bad.  Maybe I won't try that strategy again. -- Ursa Minor

Rock -- Ouch.  Not much else needs to be said. -- Dante

Reed -- Hah!  We got one of the Pinksters!  Nice turn for the rest of your team. --
Tengri Khan

Djininski -- Perhaps a small glass of wine before you head off to immortality.  A
quick glass now, but we can finish the bottle when I make my own trip to the Isle. --
Ursa Minor

Stay Gold -- I tell thou, sir, that thys is a badde plan, as it lacketh variety which
is ye critycal neede of all who wouldst an excesse of ye blyghtinge samenesse.  Thys
is ye verre best of advize, wherefore thou shouldst hede it. -- Breakspere
P.S.  And doe not playe withen thine blade!  It is thus thatt fyngers may be lost.

Vorg -- (recoiling in something or other)  Gods, your face is as crude as your name,
and your voice is worse!  I would not have thought it possible of any but an orc or
perhaps a dwarf! -- Baron Tone

Dick -- You'd look terrible in a shocking-pink tutu, so I guess it's a good thing you
aren't on our team and your team isn't in the process of casting a new opera with
balletic episodes. -- Rossmont

Chiang Pao -- I have to thank you for that.  With me limping, I can't dance the
ingenue part in Madame Butterfly's lastest brainchild, and believe me when I tell
you, that part is DIRE.  Worse than the rest of the story, and I won't offend your
sensibilities with it, either.  So, anyway, thanks. -- Merry Leona

Ziggy -- Singing careers are overrated, and so is being a professional ballerino.
Trust me on this one, I know.  It's the knees, you see.  Well, not for singers, for
them, the throat.  You might study defensive gardening, though.  "Give new meaning to
your fencerow plantings!  Keep out the wolves and elephants with your choice of
ornamentals!"  That sort of thing. -- Djininski

Nevermoor -- No bird, eh?  Your loss. -- Baron Tone

Tengri Khan -- I question whether there's a future in it for me. -- Baron Tone

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
