                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I ain't supposed to be here.  No, I'm sorta good and all but this weren't the
plan.  It was supposed ta be my teammate, Allure.  I mean, everyone loved her more.
The commission ranked her higher and everything!  Then she had ta go ta "the isle"
for a tournament and she choked on some Spinach!  No, really!  She choked and no one
knew how ta save her!  Anyhow, I come back and get matched up with someone named Anne
Tenne or sumthin and that wasn't even real close, no offense.  Suddenly I'm
DUELMASTER!  Now it's cool and all but the vibe in the stable house is really kinda
dark right now.  Our manager is moping around, muttern' ta himself, that is when we
see him.  He's talkin about some drastic stuff.  I kinda fear for my other long time
teammate.  He's been practicin' in torchlight these past few weeks.  Doesn't bode
well fer him.  Same with that new kid, so I didn't ever bother ta learn his name!
Wiccan and Rune won't even get outta bed most days, let alone practice.  Not sure
they're up ta fightin right now.  Makes it tough ta celebrate my good fortune.  I see
some kid down below me in the rankins that I ain't too keen on fightin at the moment.
Eye Bags I think?  Seems no one has handled him yet.  Hopefully he ain't up ta
knockin me off here. I kinda want ta stick around.  Maybe then we'll be in the mood
ta party!  I mean, I deserve a little recognition don't I?

See ya'll on the sands!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORYA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as EXPENSE ACCOUNT is pushed 
out of top team by ZODIAC, who came from 3rd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for MAGICAL MADNESS, whose 
0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 6th.  OTTO'S MECHANICS stable has parlayed 
this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd 
place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, KOROSHIYA ICHI fought POP TARGET and gained 
17 points and contributed to LORD OF DISCIPLINE's 2-2-0.  BUM PURR has lost to PRIDE 
OF CARTHAGE, falling 11 points, while helping make OTTO'S MECHANICS a 4-1-0 turn.  
And all eyes were on FREDDY FENDER this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  MORYA has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Arthur's Last Stand until they win. 
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the LORD OF DISCIPLINE stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on MORYA, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided LORD OF DISCIPLINE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was OTTO'S 
MECHANICS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that LILY OF SARMATIA 
from DODGE BULLETS was MORYA's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  MAGICAL MADNESS has sent CONSTRUCT 
to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORYA and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MORYA again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- I made an error, not a financial error by any means, in posting Capex's
deftness.  It was 21, not 11.  Yes, a 21-DF basher.  Lovely, eh? -- Finance Manager

High Elf -- Let it be known that you were "easy."  I like easy partners. -- Lord
Protector Capex, Retired

Pluto -- Thanks for the challenge.  I enjoyed winning the sprint. -- Consultation

Hubb Cap -- Your style is an enigma to all mankind and that manager of yours is
nothing but a despicable hockey ref.  So there! -- Insurance
P.S.  EVERYBODY hates aimers!

Time is limited... doing this from the road... more later... maybe... if the numbers
are good. -- Finance Manager

Talisman -- Congrats on the throne.  I was truly held at bay. -- Anne Tenna

Rune -- You on the other hand, are still wet behind your ears. -- Freddy Fender

Insurance -- I think I noticed a scratch on my chrome. -- Hub Capp

Venus -- I think I was starstruck. -- Flo Valve

Storm Warning -- We find it quite frustrating that you beat us with a lucky hit.
Until next time. -- Psycho Dad

Lucky Looie -- ... -- Mongo Crush

He said it was a good fight.  You hit really hard.  Better luck next time. -- Psycho
Dad

Jupiter -- Now, that felt good.  We Lords don't know why your stable keeps trying to
make a rivalry, but we will meet the challenge. -- Water Rat

Freddy Fender -- That was completely unexpected.  I was just starting to feel good
about myself, too!  Guess I need to sit out for a few turns and think on what you
showed me. -- Rune

Morya -- If the golem could speak, Construct would say "Goodbye!"

Allure's replacement had no magic in it.  Where are you at RUGs!? -- DD

     Here and there.  Using up the Frequent Flyer Miles. -- RUG #807986987

Capex -- Seeing you leave is MY pleasure.  Finally. -- Pop Target
P.S.  And Mom Target is glad, too.  She says you make me "too tired."

Eye Bags -- Er, ah, go for it? -- Lily of Sarmatia

Construct -- Not here.  You need to go over those blueprints again. -- Lily of
Sarmatia

Uranus -- I prefer to think of you as Oranos. -- Mary Mei

Mongo Crush -- You need to try harder.  Or something.  Maybe a night out getting
totally mokus. -- Lucky Looie

Eye Bags -- Oh, I've got some of those, too, but I don't *boast* about them. -- Pop

Psycho Dad -- You have to take me seriously, you know. -- Storm Warning
