                             Notes from the arena champ.

That's it, Arvat, I am out of here!

     I will be heading to the Isle, getting my lands and some gold, and then you can
find me on the beach from then on!
     Tia says she's going to be keeping up the fighting gig.  None of that life for
me, thank you.  It was a means to an end and for me the end is a nice little cottage
by the beach, a new wardrobe and all the gala events I can get invited to.  I'm going
to be a socialite, thank you very much.  Hobnobbing with the rich and powerful, maybe
a little charity work.  But only on cloudy days.  When it's sunny, I'm going to be on
the beach!
     I've been told I have to give a nice, newsy interview, but I'm really not
digging it.  I guess I'll just go over the basics.  I ended up getting favorites of
decise learn, decise tactic and Moderate/Low.  My favorite weapon is the Halbard,
which is funny, because I'm not tall or strong enough to use it.  My manager says I'm
the first of his warriors with that particular favorite weapon.
     Seeing as both Tia and I are going and Absolution went last turn, plus word has
it that the boss isn't happy with May Monn, the guildhouse is going to be pretty
vacant for a while.  Sounds like we'll be having a lot of newbies.

That's about it, Arvat.

Hang ten.  Chill out.  Be cool!

Dee N. Emmi

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARVAT will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for B.I.G., whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 
21st.  CALL THE PRIEST stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 7 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 9th place.  Good work, guys!  The GIANT KILLERS 
guild has had a 3-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, S.W.A.T. fought TAKE YOUR LUMPS 
and gained 32 points and contributed to SECRET SQUIRRELS' 2-3-1.  CLAIRE D'LUNE has 
lost to INSIDIOUS, falling 21 points, while helping make THE CRIMSON CUP a 2-3-0 
turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, DEE N. EMMI kept COLLEGE RADIO's 
warrior, BRITISH SEA POWER, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  DEVIL ADVOCATES has cause to stand tall, as they were ARVAT's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided DEVIL ADVOCATES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SEGUE CARTEL.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was CALL THE PRIEST's 
warrior EVIL FANTASIES.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster! 
In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), T ON challenged 
MATHEU today, facing a 26 difference in recognition.  Even though T ON lost the 
fight, she at least came away with a gain of 75 points for challenging on of 
ASSORTED.  In a brave attempt, SQUISHY GIANT from THE WALKING DEAD challenged up 18 
points to fight PIMP IN A BOX from the DEATH BY DESIGN stable.  SQUISHY GIANT perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by PIMP IN A BOX and ended up with 8 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Banners at half mast, warriors, COLLEGE RADIO has lost TAKE YOUR LUMPS, and 
you might say all of ARVAT has felt the loss, except maybe SECRET SQUIRRELS.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARVAT and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARVAT again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
