                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Farewell my fellow Lyratilians, I'm off to retirement in Homeguard.  For those
who care about such things, I'm a 11-4-10-15-17-14-13 Lunger who shows mode in all
ratings thus far.  Learned 48 skills, for AdExs in Init and Defence, and Experts in
Attack and Decise.  Commission favourites are Shortsword, High/Very High rhythm, no
tactics with a focus on Parry skills.  Following my visit this week to the Dark
Arena, the Primates will be taking a hiatus of unknown duration from arena duels.

Grape Ape
Primates-R-Us
3 Time Duelmaster of Lyratilan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LYRATILAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  ERRATA stable has parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BLOODY 
MARY fought JUNGLE JIM and gained 16 points and contributed to SAY MY NAME's 2-2-0.  
JUNGLE JIM has lost to BLOODY MARY, falling 5 points, while helping make 
PRIMATES-R-US a 0-2-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between LIZARD MAN and 
our Duelmaster GRAPE APE, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as LIZARD MAN killed the Duelmaster, GRAPE APE, leaving PRIMATES-R-US in 
mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, WILCE from ERRATA to 
ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Piper's 
Rest?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SAY MY NAME has cause to stand tall, as they 
were LYRATILAN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding SAY MY NAME more than any other team we find ERRATA.  LYRATILAN, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 you see my quill in LYRATILAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
