     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in CALEAM this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
CRACKED TANKARD is pushed out of top team by GOLDEN CANYON, who came from 2nd with a 
4-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, POPPA LODE fought VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 17 
points and contributed to GOLDEN CANYON's 4-0-0.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, MEAD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some 
honor, GO-FER now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of CALEAM.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty 
Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, CALEAM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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-- Alarond the Scribe
