                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It appears Debby Tonte, a spy reporter, is trying to stir things up.  Debby 
points out I bloodfeuded Nisroch. 
     A provision in the Red Book allows any teammate of a slain warrior to bloodfeud 
the slayer.  "Anytime a Bloodfeud is revenged, the honor is noted, and if it goes 
unrevenged all four turns, the dishonor is also noted."  I opine that a purpose of the 
provision can be to give teams latitude in making kills counterproductive.  But the 
teams need to be their own heroes. 
     In a personal ad for turn 337, Master Darque said he would, "try harder" to get a 
higher kill rate.  In a personal ad for turn 338, my team stated, "As the Red Book 
puts it, an Initiate could find himself fighting the Duelmaster."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, XOCHITHLAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PARKLAND, since DUCKS 
UNLIMITED took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  DUCKS UNLIMITED 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see DUCK DODGERS win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DUCK DODGERS 
beat POOPS THROUGH DIAPER and POOPS THROUGH DIAPER lost 21 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Looks like XOCHITHLAN has some guts at least, CWM the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
SCROOGE MCDUCK takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these 
guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
XOCHITHLAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  ANYWAYUSLICEIT the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like DUCKS 
UNLIMITED avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you 
ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad 
to see SWAN and PARKLAND at The Dripping Blade tonight celebrating their bloodfeud 
victory over SUPERSLICE.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team 
is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in XOCHITHLAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place--
