                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I won't say that match was hard luck for Waldo, he got four skills out of it.
But it was great for me.  Invited to the Isle!  Not that I'm likely to go, being just
a middling sort of gladiator, but still, it's a rush.
     12-8-15-11-17-12-9, EP (ugh) high/high, riposte tactic.  I could do worse.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt CLIFFHOME will ever be the same.  BOY O'S stable has parlayed this turn's 
1-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, SHOTGUN! (SO GOOD) fought BALLOU YS and gained 17 points 
and contributed to WHAT?'s 1-0-0.  HARANDUR has lost to WALDO, falling 7 points, 
while helping make JINDA-BAN a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and DINGIL BILL remains CLIFFHOME's top warrior for another turn.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Choking Ogre?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the ARENA 
FELINES stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on CLIFFHOME, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided ARENA FELINES stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was BOY O'S.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HARANDUR from 
JINDA-BAN was CLIFFHOME's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

M. Chardinee silly fool.  I break his arm, I break his head.  This happens. --
Guhulong

What I want to know is, who goes out and captures all these orcs, and where?  They
don't run around loose, you know.  They live in towns, or at least tribes, and you
don't find 'em on their own. -- Harandur

The Userous Merchant is SOOO susceptible to a little wiggle here and there.
Completely loses track of what he was doing. -- Ballou Ys

Lord Protector Dingil Bill -- I have been instructed to offer you a certain crypt in
the lower reaches of the Cliff for YOUR VERY OWN, provided you will rid it of the
current occupant.  This should present no problems for an up and coming young Lord
Protector.  Stop by my office for the key. -- Ilsvain, Arena Steward
