                             Notes from the arena champ.

Niytyole Neighbors,

They told me the View from the Top was Fantastic!  They were Not Exaggerating!  Now
there has been some Great Debate regarding the number of Political Points earned for
those ranked below the Challenger Champions!

My Goal is to Rule the Throne and get Graduated from here!  The Perks are getting My
Name Printed in the Free Blades Regional News!  Circulated in Every Newsletter sent
to Free Blades Managers!

The Longer I Stay on the Throne the More Famous I Become!  No Matter How Many
Political Points I Receive!  The Key is to Keep Winning!  While Staying Alive!  You
Do Not Die if You Do Not Lose!

More Important is the Skill Learns!  But You All Know the Importance of Skill Learns!
You All Know the Importance of Winning!  You All Know the Importance of Staying
Alive!

But I Am the One Who Earned the Right to Write!  You Have Something Better to Say?
Then Wait Your Turn and Maybe You Will Get Lucky and Ascend the Niytyole Island
DuelMasters Throne!

QUACK QUACK

Duck Creek Hammer
Your Arena 33 DuelMaster!
"Things are Just Ducky on the Niytyole Island DuelMasters Throne!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in NIATOLI ISLAND this turn, and 
let's start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as NOT A SPORT is pushed out of top team by KLKASINO HAMMERZ, who came 
from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, PEEP fought BEAR CREEK HAMMER and 
gained 17 points and contributed to ERRATA's 2-0-0.  BEAR CREEK HAMMER has lost to 
PEEP, falling 14 points, while helping make KLKASINO HAMMERZ a 2-3-0 turn.  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and DUCK CREEK HAMMER 
has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With DUCK CREEK HAMMER clearing the throne, 
ERRATA of PEEP takes a proud seat as NIATOLI ISLAND's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  RAVAGING LORDS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And avoiding RAVAGING LORDS more than any other team we find ERRATA. 
NIATOLI ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that NIATOLI ISLAND has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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 NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
