                             Notes from the arena champ.

     For the record, I have no idea what I'm doing up here.
     But while I am, I'd like to take a moment to thank my mom, for always supporting
me.  And I'd like to thank the god of the seas.  This one is for you, big guy.  I'd
also like to thank the academy, my trainers, my teammates, those guys who rake the
sands in between matches...

Crab Smasher

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NIATOLI ISLAND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  And let's see, TORMENT fought SPINNING STAR and gained 20 points and 
contributed to DIVINE HERITAGE's 3-2-0.  SPINNING STAR has lost to TORMENT, falling 
16 points, while helping make THE SEWING CIRCLE a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title 
for another turn, CRAB SMASHER kept RAVAGING LORDS' warrior, TOBY, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Don't Drop Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that NIATOLI ISLAND 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 NIATOLI ISLAND and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
