Greetings, Gladiators!

high hopes (and ambitions) and we're very much ready for our fights.

The Steel Wolves are now ready for tournaments, so good luck to all warriors!

                                      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.  The THE MIDDLE WAY guild has had a 3-1-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, UDARN VOYL fought MASSEY and gained 21 points and 
contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY's 3-1-0.  RATA has lost to ELITE ASSASSIN, falling 24 
points, while helping make KIWI CONNECTION a 1-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on FALLON 
GRIMM this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  XOCHITHLAN has a new 
victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Congratulations go out to THE MIDDLE WAY, with UDARN VOYL revenging 
a bloodfeud against MASSEY of KIWI CONNECTION.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in XOCHITHLAN and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in XOCHITHLAN again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Our congratulations to Rata.  You Kiwis are leaving fast!  I hope you've got new ones
coming in? -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Ipswich -- I'm glad you're leaving.  Sure, it's a good thing you're graduating, going
to the Big Time, all that, but from a personal standpoint, I'm glad you're leaving.
Have a good trip, and never camp for the night before crossing a stream.  What if the
water rises in the night and you're stuck on the wrong side? -- Fallon Grimm

Woxton -- I don't care which side of the stream you camp on, but never camp IN a dry
riverbed! -- Udarn Voyl

Massey -- That was completely unnecessary.  I hope the next time you hit the road,
the flash floods GET you. -- Ghost or Roseann Sarmin

And a couple of standbys to make us look good. -- Bettina Chim and Ulrik Venn
P.S.  Well, sorta good.

Steel Wolves -- Your diplo received.  Without a specific question, or at least an
encounter on the sands, it's hard to give advice.  If you qualify as a new player,
though, I strongly recommend that you put a team in Noblish Island (dm 93), which is
designed and intended to be a training ground for new managers. -- Jorja, the Middle
Way
