                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I took a dagger and shaved the Lion's Mane close.  Now it's a skinhead.  Ha!
     Graduation details on request.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CLIFFHOME!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as ZOMBIE SQUAD is pushed 
out of top team by JINDA-BAN, who came from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's 
see, KOBE fought BASKERVILLE PIG and gained 19 points and contributed to ZOMBIE 
SQUAD's 1-2-0.  LOGRANAL MAUR has lost to UNCUT HARE, falling 6 points, while helping 
make JINDA-BAN a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, KEVSILESSA KIRO 
kept ZOMBIE SQUAD's warrior, WALKER, from claiming the throne.  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ZOMBIE SQUAD has cause to stand tall, as they were 
CLIFFHOME's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided ZOMBIE SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BASH BROS 
PARK.  Anyone surprised?   
     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 brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, CLIFFHOME, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in 
CLIFFHOME again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
