                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Obviously, we don't want a Rirorni Adventurer for duelmaster here.  I did the
best I could with him.

                                   Ellirin Imbray

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The THE FALLEN ANGELS guild has had a 3-0-1 turn and deserves to be watched 
in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  SHERRY challenged 
for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone MIDDLE WAY 17's warrior.  
And all eyes were on SHERRY this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
JHANS has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at Lucas Lounge?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that JAHGG 
GRIMEYE from THE FALLEN ANGELS was JHANS' most challenged warrior this turn.  In a 
brave attempt, JAHGG GRIMEYE from THE FALLEN ANGELS challenged up 22 points to fight 
BELARDON FRYE from the MIDDLE WAY 17 stable.  JAHGG GRIMEYE perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he won victory over BELARDON FRYE and ended up with 85 
recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JHANS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

I would not have expected the Mordant Deserter to teach so well.  Four skills!  Not
bad. -- Farlo Jost

Tammy -- They tell me I should feel honored to have fought a managed opponent.  It
would be more of an honor if I'd won. -- Irben Jessit
P.S.  Which is perhaps a roundabout way of saying, "Good fight."

Our congratulations to Sherry. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
