                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least the Kung-Fu Master had the grace to LOSE to me, but I am STILL not
going to cook with tofu.  That would be an insult to every other chef and gourmet in
Caleam, and there are more than you might think.  Besides, we're having out-of-town
company for dinner, so it has GOT to be something specially good.

                                     Golderie

                                      SPY REPORT

     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 
DOC LEGRAND'S LAB is pushed out of top team by GOLDEN CANYON, who came from 2nd with 
a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, MOLDRAUN fought SCARLET SKINK and gained 21 points 
and contributed to GOLDEN CANYON's 4-1-0.  SCARLET SKINK has lost to MOLDRAUN, 
falling 18 points, while helping make DOC LEGRAND'S LAB a 3-2-1 turn.  And all eyes 
were on ARTHUR BEYER this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  CALEAM 
has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the GOLDEN CANYON 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on CALEAM, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding GOLDEN CANYON more than any other team we find DOC LEGRAND'S LAB.  
CALEAM, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that CALEAM has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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 CALEAM again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Arthur Beyer -- No!  I am sure they are fine hams, but I don't want to WORK with ham.
What can I do with ham that would compete with--  Wait.  Let me give this a little
more thought.  Not the old "brown sugar and pineapple," but there must be something
else I could do.  Maybe with...hmm.  Garlic, of course, but it needs MORE.  It's all
well and good for Poppa Lode to talk about "simple is better if the ingredients are
first class."  What has HE got to worry about?  HE has already graduated. -- Loris
Key

Gods!  It was awful.  I was just getting ready to carve a roast, and along came the
"Noble Assassin" with a battle axe and "tree-felling power" and carved the roast, the
platter, the table, and three inches into the floor! -- Clemmie the annoyed

Ivory Iguana -- Well, heck.  I was only going for your appendix. -- Pike
P.S.  Er...since you're dead and have no further use for your body, ah...I really do
wonder, DOES it taste like chicken?
P.P.S.  Oh, it was YOU going for MY appendix, and I got mad and hit back, well, a
little wildly.  Bummer, but it happens, and I'm glad it happened to you and not to
me.

Soldier 4 -- No, I don't think so.  Sardines leave me, well, not cold, but actually
rather queasy.  Better I leave 'em be. -- Moldraun

Copperhead -- If you can do that in a cooking pot, we can make a FORTUNE here. --
Bobbit Stonewall, Friendly Constable

Scarlet Skink and Guardian Naga -- Not the kind of customer I prefer. -- Honest John
Treve, Honest Merchant

Speckled Gecko -- Insolent lizard! -- Bardo Wolfson, Ruthless Jaywalker
P.S.  Hmm, bet you taste just like chicken....

Clemmie -- Fool woman!  When you see me coming, you should just get out of my way!
I'm mad.  I'm furious.  I really tense. -- Toreo Filis of Ti, Noble Assassin
P.S.  Having my home town disappear due to an act of magic takes me that way.

Golderie -- You try too hard, grasshopper.  Did you not realize that a souffle could
become tough and practically inedible by excessive beating?  Gently, gently. --
Enrito of Arkers, Master of Kung-Fu
P.S.  There is nothing wrong with tofu.  Think of it as a neutral base.
