                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, here I am at last.  Duelmaster!  It seems a long way from the old days in Seam,
I can tell you!

And Pike!  Hoo Boy! What a fight...you've got nothing to hang your head about there!
Coulda gone either way, and that's the truth.  But I guess its just like old Grandma
Bluetooth always used to tell me, "Svenskla," she would say, "always remember: the
wolf may howl and the bear may growl, but it's the monkey that gets the banana!"  And
she meant it too.  Grandma often said things like that, which may be why Grandpa
Bluetooth spent so much time out in the woods.  But I think what she meant was that
timing is everything, or maybe just that if you hang around long enough, you'll get
noticed.

Me, I'm just happy to be here for as long as it lasts.

Sven Bluetooth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in CALEAM a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The GOLDEN CANYON guild has had a 
4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, SOLDIER 1 fought GUARDIAN NAGA and gained 28 
points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR VI's 3-2-2.  CAP'N CRUNCH has lost to NOBLE 
ASSASSIN, falling 25 points, while helping make STEEL CRUSADE a 2-3-0 turn.  And not 
without some honor, LORIS KEY 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 Swinging Aardvark?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the GOLDEN CANYON stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on CALEAM, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided GOLDEN CANYON stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was STEEL CRUSADE.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SOLDIER 2 from MEDAL OF HONOR 
VI was CALEAM's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, UP-CHUCKY 
from STEEL CRUSADE challenged up 20 points to fight SOLDIER 2 from the MEDAL OF HONOR 
VI stable.  UP-CHUCKY perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued SOLDIER 2 
and ended up with 46 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  DOC LEGRAND'S LAB has lost GUARDIAN NAGA to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 10-9-0?  COPPERHEAD has departed 
CALEAM, leaving DOC LEGRAND'S LAB without their 5-3-0 warrior.  Question, just what 
was his team doing at the taverns last night?  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 you see my quill in CALEAM again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Loris -- I'll bet you were surprised to see me again.  You looked stunned, anyway. --
Cap'n Crunch

Pity to have missed Golderie's farewell party.  We heard it was quite a bash, and
that is sorta my thing, you know. -- Sven

Clemmie -- Glad to have gotten back in time to say goodbye.  I'll miss our
encounters.  Few women have surprised me as often as you have.  Adieu. -- Caylon

I've just gotta say how nice it is that Doc Legrand named his team after his doggie.
Labs are often under rated, but I've always liked 'em, the friendly little varmints.
What I don't get is how come this bunch is all named for nasty reptiles and things
like that. -- Calonymus, the frequently puzzled

Arthur Beyer -- Well!  What a nuisance to defeat you when I can't take the title as
well.  But Sven will do fine, so long as he doesn't get involved with shellfish, and
it IS a pleasure to finish up with a win.  You're even invited to the feast. -- Lady
Protector Clemmie

Steel Crudsade -- We're delighted to see you back here.  No one else TALKS to us!  Is
it something we cooked? -- Clemmie and the rest of the crew at Golden Canyon

Sven Bluetooth -- TAKE the shellfish, man, or even bring 'em to the barbeque and I'll
cook 'em for you.  At the moment, I'm inclining toward steamed, and then doused with
black pepper, lemon juice, and vodka.  So that if it turns out yucky, everyone will
be too drunk to tell, right?  Or to chase the cook. -- Pike, who did not want to be
Duelmaster of Caleam any time soon provided avoiding that didn't involve dying

Speckled Gecko -- Pitiful.  Your speckles seem to be enlarging and eating you up.
Could they be some kind of infestation? -- Moldraun

Cap'n Crunch -- (bravely, as one in great pain who is rising above it)  Come visit me
in the Infirmary and whisper to me of sauces and the dressings for salads. -- Loris
Key

Soldier 3 -- You're rude and crude and I hope you starve. -- Corot Toro
