                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, THAT was embarrassing, Deathbringer!  I hate taking the title on a loss.  
But I like very much getting an Invitation to the Isle, so I guess it balances.

                                     Bron Chollu

P.S.  Congratulations on your graduation and winning record, Deathbringer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LYRATILAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see JOCKO win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLOODSHED beat QUIA 
SALIAN and QUIA SALIAN lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, LYRATILAN may be getting bland, as BRON CHOLLU stays top dog in 
the city.  The Piper's Rest, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From LYRATILAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  MADTOWN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like ERRATA avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, VELOND WOK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, 
sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LYRATILAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of LYRATILAN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Rick O'Shea -- You, sir, are no gentleman!  All I did was ask for a ride to the
arena, which hardly deserved the rough handling with which you responded. -- Quia 
Salian

Theodoric -- You can't imagine how glad I was to meet up with someone who isn't in 
love with the moon! -- Velond Wok
P.S.  Winning the fight didn't hurt any, either.

Big Joy -- And a big one you are, too, but you know what they say:  The bigger you 
are, the harder you fall. -- Beltran Foss

Namenlos -- I was probably short one measely little political point.  Don't see what 
else could have been holding me back, as I have the fights, the wins, and the skills. 
-- Bron Chollu

Bloodshed and Theodoric -- Sure, go ahead.  Challenge us!  See if we care. -- the 
Standbys

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

29 Jun 2005
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.
