                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Veteran Mercenary, Shiris Kularsin, gave it a good try, but I was equal to
his efforts.  I kinda like this guy.  He taught me two skills, too, which is always
welcome.

                                    Kerman Jones

                                      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.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
KRILL CAVALRY is pushed out of top team by MEDAL OF HONOR A3, who came from 2nd with 
a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, MANUEL PEREZ fought MIRESSEA POOLE and gained 21 
points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR A3's 4-1-0.  DA1 has lost to ASH LEELA, 
falling 7 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR A3 a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending his 
title for another turn, KERMAN JONES kept ZORPUNT's warrior, M. CHARDINEE, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Dripping Blade 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ZORPUNT 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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Mitchell Paige -- Wow, what a fight, sure was glad I came out on top, little
surprised but happy, good fight. -- Ash Leela

Morlin Poole -- Sorry if I hurt you, mommy and daddy tell me I should be nice. --
Baby Karlie

DA1 -- Lucky you got the jump! -- Kylemeister

Baby Karlie -- I was all excited to have a real opponent, and then you turned out to
have a nasty disposition.  Crushed again. -- Morlin Poole

Miressea Poole -- The arrangement to train guards in the arena is one between myself
and arenamaster Kai.  No money has changed hands on this, as neither party has money
to disburse in this fashion.  It is a simple meeting of needs on both sides. --
Barkhaotai, Captain of Guards

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
