                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sailor Venus, ma'am, I just want you to know that any time you care to stop by
the Golden Canyon Saloon, you will be WELCOME.  I will not bounce you out the door,
even if you get mokus, and you surely wouldn't.  Sailors can hold their liquor, can't
they?

                                       Bouncer

P.S.  That whole business of sailing along the river on a shell is weird.  How do you
do it?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt CALEAM will ever be the same.  And let's see, ON THE MIRROR fought KORBEL and 
gained 16 points and contributed to HAIR EVERYWHERE!'s 2-2-0.  MY GF SHEDS has lost 
to DARKLY, falling 11 points, while helping make HAIR EVERYWHERE! a 2-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BOUNCER remains CALEAM'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 Swinging Aardvark until they win.  
Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  GOLDEN CANYON has cause to stand tall, 
as they were CALEAM's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided GOLDEN CANYON stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was SHERWOOD FOREST.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KORBEL 
from GOLDEN CANYON was CALEAM's most challenged warrior this turn.  I don't know 
about you, but DELICIOUS challenging down 19 points to HAIR EVERYWHERE!'s ON HER 
BACK, is not really worthy of INQUISITION SL4.  It pains me to see warriors take 
advantage of the system like this.  DELICIOUS won victory over ON HER BACK, as if it 
surprises anyone.   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     I like this place, CALEAM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in CALEAM and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

It offends me that,
     1)  All that could be found to fight me today was a standby, and
     2)  That the standby, called "Khalhums Dwarf," is NOT a dwarf.  Good gods, what
is this world coming to? -- Poppa Lode, finally through with his teaching career

Blood Moon -- That's golems for you.  Or for me, anyway. -- Korbel

Super Freak -- I forgive you your golem-hood because you teach so well.  But next
time, be careful where you put that thing.  It's unseemly. -- Un-Seamstress

On the Mirror -- (gloomily)  And in the bathtub, too, I suppose. -- Golden One

Ghost of Beltar -- Fair enough.  We won't kick you when you're down. -- Jorlie
Smythe, moderately Friendly Constable

Squeaker -- Bah! -- Elmer Darogas, the most Trustworthy Scribe you'll find
P.S.  You will regret your actions and words.  Trust me on this.

Lord Protector Poppa Lode -- I have here a note from you stating that you "wish no
expensive gift" from the local authorities, as you are "going into business" with
your local manager Klondike Kate in the Golden Canyon Saloon.  We wish you the best
of luck with it.  May your success in the saloon business greatly exceed your success
in the arena. -- Arenamaster Tohre

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
