                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Convicted Assassin?  Stonefish, I was expecting you!

                                     Pine Leaf

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZORPUNT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  GRAZL has lost to INNY MEANIE, falling 8 points, 
while helping make GANG GRENE-BAX a 3-2-2 turn.  Well done, ZORPUNT, the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps PINE LEAF is not as thrilled, being 
challenged 2 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.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  GANG GRENE-BAX has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ZORPUNT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided GANG GRENE-BAX stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
MONEY PIT.  Anyone surprised?  In a brave attempt, GROX from GANG GRENE-BAX 
challenged up 21 points to fight TRINA LARK from the KRILL CAVALRY stable.  GROX 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he killed TRINA LARK and ended up with 66 
recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  KRILL CAVALRY has lost TRINA LARK to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 15-14-0?  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.  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, 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
