                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose, being duelmaster--and I earned it fair and square by defeating the
outgoing Lead Pipe--I should say a few words from the top.  Hmm.
     Alpha Angels Advance Across Andoria.
     Bloody Bulls Bellow Bitterly Back.
     Dirty Dogs Dodge Dancing Donkeys.
     Hmm.  I don't think I have the knack for this.  I'll give it more thought, in
case I'm in the same position next time.  But note, they ARE words, spoken by the
duelmaster.  They just don't MEAN anything.  Ah, they don't mean anything relevant
and or useful.

                                       Tol Voram

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LYRATILAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, IRONMAN fought SHIFTYEYED 
VOLUNTEER and gained 13 points and contributed to W.COAST AVENGERS' 3-2-0.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TOL VORAM remains LYRATILAN's 
top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Piper's Rest until they win.  
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ERRATA has cause to stand tall, as they were LYRATILAN's most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who avoided 
ERRATA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FUNKY FOLK.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.  Is it really true that LYRATILAN 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, LYRATILAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in LYRATILAN, 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

Whoa!  Sam Sung goes to the Dark Arena?  Some managers are TOUGH.  AND he was most
popular?  Life in the arena is strange.

Robin Storz -- Cheese louise, woman!  How am I going to stay in business if you do
that? -- Isek Krol

Bluddy Hackit -- That's no way to run a hotel, bub. -- Urbin Yates

The Lead Pipe -- I'm switching to copper. -- Tol Voram

Mrs. Peacock -- My teammate didn't want to get too close to a werewolfess, but as a
werewolf myself, I don't have a problem with it.  And neither did the fans.  They
really liked seeing me whack you with that rolled-up newspaper. -- Kolter Neethe

Pam Perz -- You're a silly little wench, but that's okay.  I can handle it. --
