                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Kung-Fu Master, how inspiring.  I suppose Kellumbo's holding his kids out for
the next tourney.  Oh, well, it could be worse.  I think.  Probably.

                                     Ellirn Koul

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SOLVEN this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 15, who came from 2nd with a 
2-3-0 this turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ELLIRN 
KOUL remains SOLVEN'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 Victory Tavern 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  In a brave attempt, LITTLE SMIRK from 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS challenged up 18 points to fight JILIAN NORMAN from the MIDDLE WAY 15 
stable.  LITTLE SMIRK perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she won victory over 
JILIAN NORMAN and ended up with 79 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that SOLVEN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SOLVEN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Little Smirk -- Wretched beast. -- Chawlie Istta

M. Chardinee -- If you insist on the win, okay, I can go with that.  But I should get
more skills, then. -- Hotl Muschel

The Virginal Concubine is interesting but a little, ah, shop-worn around the edges.
I wonder how well she still merits her title. -- Jilian Norman

     Twenty-years in the arena will make anyone "shop-worn," you insufferable little
     snip. -- Alis Milis, Concubine

Well, no doubt about that, the Shiftyeyed Volunteer is truly pathetic. -- Eldon Kree

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
