                             Notes from the arena champ.

I have returned yet again.  Just one more turn left until I go inactive for the
tourney.  The Trainer has high hopes for me since I runner-upped Apprentices and TV'd
Adepts in my only 2 tourneys entered.  Stratostar will be joining me as an inactive
as he will be running in theAdepts tourney.  It looks like only Personal Legend and
Thunder Sword willbe active for a short while.  The Trainer has grown weary of
Topiary so he will be fighting at night.  He was just a stop gap and it was hoped
That he would provide wins but since he has failed to due that as of late the boss
decided it was Topiary's time.  He will be missed but at least he was given a shot.

It is good to see Arvat growing so nicely.  I would like to welcome Shadow Rangers,
Fishin';, Jamaican Superheroes & Disillusioned to our fine arena.  We hope you all
enjoy your stay and hope that you all stick around for a while.  I must say that I am
very disappointed in Caesar and his absence.  I understand that "things happen" but
after pleading for us to return only to leave once we finally do return is very
disappointing.  It seems apparent to us that the Mighty Caesar no longer has what it
takes to win and kill.  Unfortunately they should now be viewed as a former team of
glory.  The Temple of Caesar is closed.

Challenges go out to Justice and Demetren again.  I hope to be here one last turn
before I go inactive.

            Your Duelmaster,
            Silver Train

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARVAT will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as ANGELS OF PAIN is pushed out of top team by LUROCIAN GUARD, who came from 3rd with 
a 3-2-0 this turn.  RILL'S GCSC2 stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 6 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 6th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, ANGUISH fought HEARING AID and gained 16 points and contributed to ANGELS OF 
PAIN's 3-1-0.  HEARING AID has lost to ANGUISH, falling 12 points, while helping make 
DISILLUSIONED a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, SILVER TRAIN kept 
ANGELS OF PAIN's warrior, JUSTICE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  LUROCIAN GUARD has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ARVAT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding LUROCIAN GUARD more than any other team we find DEVIL ADVOCATES.  
ARVAT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that SARLOW from FISHERMAN'S WHARF was ARVAT's most challenged warrior 
this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  DEMETREN, does your manager know you're challenging down 
26 points to fight HERON from FISHERMAN'S WHARF?  We're not surprised to hear that 
DEMETREN beat HERON, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why RILL'S GCSC2 made 
such a challenge.  I don't know about you, but RAGE challenging down 22 points to 
FISHERMAN'S WHARF's SARLOW, is not really worthy of ANGELS OF PAIN.  I thought 
challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  RAGE overcame 
SARLOW, is nothing sacred?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ARVAT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARVAT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Rumor of the Week -- Caesar was seen closing up the Roman Heroes Guildhouse yet
again.  Word has it he is afraid of the competition in Arvat and is looking for
easier pastures!

Welcome to Shadow Rangers, Fishin' and Jamaican Superherores! -- Good luck on the
sands! -- Angels of Pain and Devil Advocates

Old Man -- Glad to help out.  Of course I may be joining the Hip in Death if I don't
pick up my pace here... -- Horror

Silver Train -- Will you hurry up and get your invite already!  I am sick of fighting
(losing to) you. -- Demetren 

I.M. Ceytin -- Nice try but not good enough. -- Roland

Lars -- I suck, that was just plain pathetic. -- Gelen

Anla'shok -- Huh, I must be doing something right. -- Karlrak

Spidermon -- And I must not be doing it right. -- Mesharr

Master Beru -- Welcome to Arvat! -- Rillion

All -- Okay after some distractions I have my 'stuff' together again and will
hopefully be getting strategies and ads submitted for a little while. -- Rillion

All -- Well, just letting you all know that Spidermon and Batmon are sitting after
this turn.  Hopefully they don't kill anyone.  Supermon will be here for two more
turns, and then I'm outta here.  Just didn't want anyone to waste their challenges.
Man, I'm a nice guy.  I'll probably be back for a few turns after the April mailer,
but who knows.  I'm getting out of control with this whole sandbagging thing.  I
blame the Sentinel for corrupting me at the FtF.  Well, the FONZ as a whole is to
blame, but mostly him. -- Pauly, mgr Jamaican Superheroes

Bubba -- Impressive moves, but unfortunately for you, I have a little more experience
than my record would suggest. -- Supermon
P.S.  Lord ha mercy!

Burly Reiver -- "Burly," all right.  Darned jocks. -- Sarlow

Stratostar -- Wow, what a student!  I'm impressed. -- Heron
P.S.  I'd teach you my SPECIAL skills, but you're too short to stand in the water and
fish.  Sorry.

Topiary -- You had some wild twigs, and I trimmed 'em for you. -- Geroge Roft
P.S.  Think of me as a tree surgeon.

Horror -- Er, ah, good try, but I'm just not awake enough for horror.  It requires a
certain level of attention I can't give it today.  Maybe another time. -- Fillis Bouy

Anguish -- Darn.  Bit my tongue.  I hate that. -- Peter Piquin

Daisy, Suzy, etc. -- Well, I don't know about that, but if you catch it, we'll cook
it. -- Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf
P.S.  But not a cook-off, okay?

Master Beru -- And many other places. -- Jorja
