                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Perhaps you should consider changing your name, Lucky.  Or do you consider it
good luck that you don't have to do the column?  (Such as it is.)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt MURSKA will ever be the same.  And let's see, HAREC O'KAI fought CIVIL and 
gained 20 points and contributed to CHILDREN OF LLYR's 3-2-0.  ANGUS ARGUS has lost 
to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 7 points, while helping make CHILDREN OF LLYR a 3-2-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, KNUCKLE now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of MURSKA.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Dragon's Hangover until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  LUCKY was sent to the Dark 
Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  A brave warrior does not 
carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider 
well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MURSKA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MURSKA again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
