                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least I won my match with the Khalhums Dwarf in order to get this position.
That isn't much, but it's something.

                                      Joe Poole

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZORPUNT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, OMASTAR fought 
TRINA LARK and gained 17 points and contributed to WATER DECK's 2-0-0.  BUBBA JONES 
has lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD, falling 10 points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 
1-4-0 turn.  Well done, ZORPUNT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Perhaps JOE POOLE is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  STONEFISH 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone KRILL CAVALRY's 
warrior.  And not without some honor, STONEFISH now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of ZORPUNT.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZORPUNT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

But, secretly, the trees are in league with the grasses, and the compromising
whispers of the wind are being widely broadcast.

     What?  How can that be? -- Ed.

Sorry no personals last time, we were on the road. -- Krill Cavalry

King Brown Snake -- What a nasty temper you have!  But have you considered the
implications anent your blood pressure?  Get the ol' pressure too high, and one
little cut could have you bleeding to death like a high-speed fountain. -- Trina Lark

Convicted Assassin?  How tedious. -- Pine Leaf

I didn't realize that the Userous Merchant could get me on a purely verbal agreement.
I'll be paying on THAT one for a long time. -- Bubba Jones

Dangerous Criminal?  Bah, humbug. -- Bill Poole
P.S.  Hey, NOBODY can get too tough with me while my brother's the top dude in the
arena!

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
