                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So, I lose to the Veteran Mercenary, Farlianso'e the Dark, Veteran of Many Wars,
and I'm not the duelmaster, and nobody is.  I offered to sponsor him to do the
column, but he said he "knew better than to volunteer for anything."  And I guess
"don't volunteer" is all he had to teach me.  Bummer.

                                   Jitney Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CLIFFHOME!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, BUMBLEBUM fought DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 21 points 
and contributed to THE OAFS' 4-1-0.  LUM BUSBY has lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, falling 2 
points, while helping make JINDA-BAN a 4-1-2 turn.  We should ask JITNEY JOHNNY about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now 
the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Choking Ogre until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  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

Jinda-Ban -- Apologies for the two deaths in your stable.  We somehow feel
responsible... -- The Oafs

Jorja -- As you can see, I'm working with morons.  Anyway, sorry about the deaths.
For whatever reason, this has been a blood-thirsty lot from the get-go.  There wasn't
even any vital aiming involved from my end, but the KD was probably a bit high for
death-free dueling. -- Master Darque

Jitney Johnny -- Your column sprinkled a little bad luck on our aspirations of
competing for the throne.  We won't be competing for any throne as long as character
like Userous Merchant are giving us problems.  I know the stand-by warriors get a bad
rep at times, but our boss tells us differently about them--tells us to watch
ourselves.  He says more than once a smug warrior has taken his last breath at the
hands of Khalums Dwarf and Venemous Concubine. -- Clod

RUGs -- I see why this arena is so vacant, especially if the last two turns are any
indication of the "love" you have shown managers in the past. -- Master Darque

Dolbonar of the Steel Hand, Master of Kung-Fu -- I kinda wish you HAD begged for
mercy.  It would have given me a chance to refuse. -- Lum Busby

Looks like we're alone at the top, with a bunch of Oafs treading on our heels, AND
Jorja says we should be having our new guys coming in this week, so... we'll see what
happens. -- Johnny for Jinda-Ban
