                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yet another gladiator discovering, unhappily, that she was born to scum.
Low/very low, with a short spear and riposte tactic.  Ah, well, I won't have to worry
about it, as I'm sure to be retired.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SOLVEN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SERPENTS HOLD is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 15, who came 
from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, MEDAN QUIZZAR fought POLITE BEGGAR 
and gained 15 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 15's 4-1-0.  CACKLING HEN has lost 
to PYTHON, falling 5 points, while helping make HENPCS a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending hers 
title for another turn, LYNNIS NALL kept HENPCS' warrior, EMBEZZLING HEN, from 
claiming the throne.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Kudos go out to PYTHON this turn, 
for revenging SERPENTS HOLD's bloodfeud against HENPCS' warrior CACKLING HEN.  Well 
done.  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, SOLVEN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in SOLVEN, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Embezzling Hen -- I feel sure you deserved that.  You probably personally spent the
retirement fund for the whole arena. -- Gilly Manderson

That Happy Peasant was weird to begin with, and he remains weird.  What the heck is
he so happy about?  It's unnatural! -- Holm Joubert

Python -- Euwh!  A snake!  I can't stand snakes. -- Erris Leona

Cackling Hen -- I could've stood being killed, not that I had much CHOICE, but the
way you cackled afterward, that was enough to chill my blood. -- Ghost of Lemon
