                             Notes from the arena champ.

Bent, I am almost gone so these beatdowns should be a thing of the past very soon.
Hopefully I get my invite this turn.  All requirements will have been met so we will
just have to wait and see what the commision has to say about it.  No challenges from
me so it may be a stand-in as my team mates are challenging up to try and get in
position to keep the throne in UAK hands.  They still have to earn it though as you
veterans are some tough customers.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt CLIFFHOME will ever be the same.  And let's see, ZAG fought JITNEY JOHNNY and 
gained 23 points and contributed to U.A.K.'s 4-1-0.  JITNEY JOHNNY has lost to ZAG, 
falling 16 points, while helping make JINDA-BAN a 1-4-0 turn.  Our last turn's 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, and TORCHLIGHT KID has made the way 
for a new Duelmaster!  With TORCHLIGHT KID clearing the throne, JINDA-BAN of BENT 
FENDER takes a proud seat as CLIFFHOME's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition 
points.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Choking Ogre uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  In a brave attempt, UTANO from U.A.K. challenged up 23 points 
to fight BENT FENDER from the JINDA-BAN stable.  UTANO perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he won victory over BENT FENDER and ended up with 100 recognition points.   
     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

Torchlight Kid -- Wow, that torch of yours really shows up the scratches in my paint!
-- Bent Fender
P.S.  Glad you guys didn't go inactive, too.  It gets too quiet in here.
P.P.S.  Thanks for the column.  It seems to add something to the arena.

Utano -- Ah!  Amazing what a tune-up will do, isn't it?  And it wasn't even a FULL
tune-up, little more than being able to spend the night inside in the garage. --
Kartikaya
P.S.  Probably a fluke.

The Userous Merchant?  Ha. -- Jitney Johnny

Zag -- I think you'd better file down those nails, ma'am, or you'll snag your
stockings. -- Lum Busby

Embezzling Scribe?  It is to laugh. -- Thea Dozzier

My first loss to Kung-Fu Master?  I had him about to give up and he channeled some
inner dragon and knocked me out.  I'll show him next time. -- Bertha

Now Kartikaya.  Definitely losing some of this armor until I get on that new workout
program Otis has been telling us he was getting together. -- Utano

Thea -- With the population dwindling here you can't keep killing the standins or
they will all start leaving also.

Jinda-Ban 4-1-1 very nice turn.
