                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Long have I been waiting to claim this title, but found my way blocked by Aimed
Blow after Aimed Blow.  (Plus a few high damage bashers who know how to dent a
perfectly good suit of armor.)  I have not sought the title for the political points
as others have done--my graduation was going to have to wait for 50 FE regardless of
PP.  No, I simply sought to place another Tribesman atop the arena.  And now that I
have it I find that I will not be allowed to hold it-- a frustrating twist to an
otherwise thrilling turn of events.  But if I only get one defense before heading off
to the Isle I shall endeavor to make the best of it.  It would be nice to make it to
30 wins in basic.
     And then it will be off to Greywand's Isle.  And, of course, I now get to peek
at the favorites that the commission in its wisdom has determined are my own.  Which
shield do you think they chose for me?  For a shield it must be, no doubt.  And the
winner is... epee?  What is an epee?  A skewer?!  A skinny little kabob?!  What am I
supposed to do with that?!  I need a shield!  Do they expect me to jump all over like
those silly offensives?  No, I hunker down in my armor and use shields!
     Shields... plural!
     Not an epee!
     Why, the next thing you know they'll be suggesting a favorite armor of
"loincloth!"  Yes, I do wear one of those, but under several good solid layers of
plate!  Who is this commission, anyway?  How do they pretend to know what my
"favorites" are?  Clearly, I do not favor the epee!  How can I favor something I have
never even considered using?!  Perhaps they need to look up the word "favorite?"
     As for the arena-- welcome back Daggers Deep.  Plant them elsewhere.  The dagger
is another weapon I have little use for, although I have been known to wear one as a
backup.
     For my last Sunset challenges I believe I threw them at Chocolate Therapy and
Miter Box.  I think.  I got steamed up enough about favorites that I forgot.  But I
know I did challenge.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SUNSET will ever be the same.  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 7 
into 10th.  NOMADIC TRIBE stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 4 space move 
up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The THE BLUES 
guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, COLD SHOT fought 
TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL and gained 24 points and contributed to THE BLUES' 3-1-0.  
TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL has lost to COLD SHOT, falling 21 points, while helping make 
DEVIATION a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, WALLI WEEBLE kept GRIM 
FANDANGO's warrior, HELRAZOR, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  KANO CLAN 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 
KANO CLAN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was NOMADIC TRIBE.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that TANK EWE from BEN'S BAZAAR was 
SUNSET's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, KERZA from BLOOD AND 
SAND challenged up 25 points to fight XIAN LIN from the KANO CLAN stable.  KERZA 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued XIAN LIN and ended up with 20 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, THE RED BLADES has lost CHARITY 
SPRINGS, and SUNSET is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  OMINOUS 
REIGN has lost FEATHER to the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  
What do you expect from 9-10-1?  Congratulations go out to BEN'S BAZAAR, with AUNT 
TILLA-THE NUN revenging a bloodfeud against PIETROS of BLOOD AND SAND.  Is it really 
true that SUNSET 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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SUNSET and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
