                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I salute Collingwood as one who has the grace to let me take the title on a win.
I shall do my best by it.

                                    Xyokor Yahl

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in XOCHITHLAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as KIWI CONNECTION is pushed out of top team by THE MIDDLE WAY, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, TIMOR UNRED fought CAPTURED NOMAD 
and gained 17 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY's 3-2-0.  ASQUITH has lost to 
SAML TYNE, falling 4 points, while helping make KIWI CONNECTION a 3-2-0 turn.  And 
all eyes were on WHAKAPAPA this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
XOCHITHLAN has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     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.  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.   
     I like this place, XOCHITHLAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in XOCHITHLAN and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Asquith -- Odd, when the announcer called out your name, I thought he was talking
with a cold in his nose and saying--or trying to say, I dunno, Izkat or something.
Sounds like a kind of foreign cloth, doesn't it?  Maybe I have a cold in my ear. --
Saml Tyne

Rata -- Huh, you knocked me down and then went rata-tata-tat on my ribs.  I didn't
care for it. -- Fallon Grimm
P.S.  But I'm still alive, so it could have been worse.

Hmm, a Shaman's Assistant... I've got an idea that could be an unpleasant position to
have.  What if the shaman needed blood in a hurry, eh? -- Timor Unred

The thing with Long Range Archers is to make sure they stay close.  They're very far
sighted, you see, and if they're close, they can't see you.  Tricky, eh? -- Quita
