                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Faith is good, but I like being duelmaster.

                                  Kevsilessa Kiro

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in CLIFFHOME a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for KAOS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them 
by 4 into 7th.  And let's see, GRRR fought AFFLICTION and gained 20 points and 
contributed to ZOMBIE SQUAD's 2-0-0.  LOGRANAL MAUR has lost to STABBING EASTWARD, 
falling 16 points, while helping make JINDA-BAN a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on 
UNCUT HARE this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  CLIFFHOME has a 
new victor!  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.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
JOE BLACK of APOCALYPSE has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his 
shield.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in CLIFFHOME, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
