                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Gadget fared well, but not well enough.  I have revenged my fallen teammate and
good friend Lord Walton.  I am pleased, yet still miss my friend.
     Perhaps someone from our fine city of Iaye fought well in the Mailer?  Alas, no
Lenpro was present for that great event.  Yet, we look forward to participating in
Atlanta.  (If and when there is ever an Atlanta.)
     There are no easy battles when one is Duelmaster.  I welcome one and all to take
the challenge to win the throne from me.  It is an honor to be Duelmaster, and an
even greater honor to become Duelmaster by defeating a Duelmaster.  I am here.  Your
chance is now.  Salute.
     Health.  Humility.  Honor.
         Lady Huntsman, Duelmaster Of Iaye

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt IAYE will ever be the same.  And let's see, CARDINAL ARIZPE fought PRINCESS 
DIANA and gained 22 points and contributed to LENPROS' 2-2-1.  MODBLYE has lost to 
KESTRINA, falling 13 points, while helping make RAGGED EDGE a 3-2-0 turn.  This 
week's Duelmaster bout was between BIGFOOTS and our Duelmaster LADY HUNTSMAN, making 
a challenge.  And not without some honor, BIGFOOTS now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of IAYE.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Dragon's Blood Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the WORLDLY 
DECLINE stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on IAYE, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding WORLDLY DECLINE more than any other team we find LENPROS.  
IAYE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that BIGFOOTS from RED DOG GANG was IAYE's most challenged warrior this turn.  
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  WORLDLY DECLINE has lost PRINCESS DIANA to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 11-11-1?  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, IAYE, 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 IAYE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Modblye -- That was quick--again.  We didn't even make it to the ragged edge again.
It is now 1-1.  Shall we settle it? -- Duke Of Whirlpool

Warg -- There are times when patience is a virtue.  I was pleased to have my patience
in that battle. -- Private Perna

Fence Post -- Thank you for just being there. -- Don Francis

Bigfoots -- Bless you.  I enjoyed our discussion.  We must meet more with such good
resultants. -- Cardinal Arizpe

Gadget -- You had your chance.  Would you like another? -- Lady Huntsman

The Boy King and Princess Diana -- Nice victories over the ultimate foes!  (wink) --
Lenpro

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever! -- Lenpro

Duke of Whirlpool -- Was that more to your satisfaction? -- Modblye

Cardinal Arizpe -- No, you don't understand.  It isn't any good talking about me
repenting or anything, I belong to the sect Non-Apologists.  No explanations, no
guilt, just forward motion, you know? -- Bigfoots
P.S.  Life goes on, and don't look back.  All that kind of thing.

Don Francis -- I'll bet you say that to ALL the fence posts you fight.  A
flibbertigibbet and a lightfoot, that's what you are.  A sipper.  A here-and-
thereian. -- Fence Post, a here-only-and-alwaysian

Earthquake Excuse -- Does anyone believe it?  Because if so, I want to take notes. --
Dr Trinaire, always on the lookout for a good excuse

Klink -- It was the clink of gold coins against each other on the counter that
distracted me.  Probably, if you had NOT distracted me, if you'd given me a chance to
really do my stuff, win the fight, all that, I would have also taught you something.
-- Irish Cream
P.S.  But maybe not.

Serris -- I think what YOU need is to sleep.  Knit up that raveled sleeve and all. --
Windsong
P.S.  Or at least to fight someone else.

Lenpro -- We're thinking of endowing a fishing pole in Lord Walton's name. -- the Red
Dog Gang

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
