                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, off I go.  I was expecting to stick around a while, but it seems I am Free
Blades bound.  I would have expected to leave on a high note.  However, I am mourning
the early passage of a couple warriors.  So I will be avenging the loss of
Pollinator.  So, who will fill the throne?  The Farseers?  Numbers Game?  Avengers?
My cash is on Bad News Bees.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in CHIMLEVTAL a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The AVENGERS guild has had 
a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, PANDA ROSS fought RAPTOR and gained 19 points 
and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 7's 2-3-0.  THRALL has lost to KATANA, falling 12 
points, while helping make THE STORM REAVERS a 3-2-0 turn.  This turn BUMBLE 
Bloodfeuded SANDRA in what was CHIMLEVTAL's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and BUMBLE remains CHIMLEVTAL's top warrior for another turn. 
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Mourngrym Inn and Tavern 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 BAD NEWS BEES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on CHIMLEVTAL, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided BAD NEWS BEES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
THE FARSEERS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MORE 
DESTROYERS' warrior SANDRA.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  DRONE-ON of BAD NEWS BEES had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DRONE-ON showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued REBEKKA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Congratulations go out to BAD NEWS BEES, with BUMBLE revenging a bloodfeud 
against SANDRA of MORE DESTROYERS.  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, CHIMLEVTAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in CHIMLEVTAL 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

Rondor Sendal -- Always a pleasure running up against you. -- Shrewd

Jorja -- I do have CIC charts to use for new creations.  Some of my builds just seem
doomed to failure because of base stats or bad judgment on my part at creation.
Mainly, my problems are with pure offensives because that it is what I have made the
most of, but in this case, it was a PR with bad stats:  10-13-12-15-4-13-17.  I did
send them to the DA on the fourth turn.  Maybe I am just a slow learner. -- The
Catalyst

Katana -- Hard to believe your arms did not give out on you with all that swinging.
-- The Fool

Flyby -- Hatchet man, are you? -- Rosemary

Bumble -- With you gone maybe I will have a real shot at the Duelmaster title. --
Dutiful

All -- When considering what to do with a new roll-up, what do you prioritize?  Let's
say you are given:  13-4-14-8-10-8-13 to build with.  What changes are made? -- The
Catalyst, mgr. The Farseers

Rookie warriors never seem to listen.  I guess it's my own fault for giving
instructions to two warriors at once.  It seems they got the instructions mixed up
and they ended up using each other's directions.  It could not have been the scribes,
after all.  So with the loss of two promising warriors, Pollinator and Sticky Wing,
hail my new warriors Sweetness and Honeycomb. -- Stinger, mgr Bad News Bees

Wakizahi -- Close, but not close enough.  I suspect you will get more opportunities.
-- Drone-On

Sandra -- Prepare, Pollinator will be avenged. -- Stinger

Osmond -- You should also be prepared, Sticky Wing will be avenged. -- Stinger

The Catalyst -- I also have a pack of wolves running in Arena 39, Xochitlan,
cosistently losing to the Middle WAy. -- Lobo, mgr SWFour

All -- Seem like a fun, psychotically murderous arena.  I think I'm gonna have a lot
of fun (and burial expenses) here.  I mean, five deaths last turn (granted, my own
Selune was guilty of one of them)...

On a different topic, does anyone have in depth information on strikers?  I tend to
favor their sytle, and I'd like to know how best to run them.  I only have one in
this arena though.  Later Good luck, warriors! -- Lobo, mgr SWFour

The Catalyst -- Nearly everywhere, for my sins.  I am NOT active in 11, 18, 21, 47,
or 81 at the moment, though. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Bumble and Xandar. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Corwin -- Oh, right, make me feel worthless!  I tell you one thing, though, I had the
intelligence and luck to hire on with a manager who won't send me to the Dark Arena.
Neglect me shamefully, yes, the Dark Arena, no. -- Lumus Nelp

Shrewd -- Can I claim you won that with a style advantage?  Although that probably
won't be enough to let me off the wind sprints.  Jorja says I'm getting lazy. --
Rondor Sendal
P.S.  Actually, she said something MUCH stronger, but they wouldn't print it in the
newsletter.

Daikkan -- Ah, that worked!  Amazing. -- Mandin Orwell

Spartan #301 -- I didn't think my style did stuff like that.  No wonder it was
considered "unbelievable."  I sure as heck wasn't TRYING to kill anybody at all. --
Panda Ross

Ghost of Sticky Wing -- This is, well, I guess it could be called a Bad Beginning for
me, couldn't it?  Damn.  Well, I'll be here for the bloodfeud. -- Osmond Quint
