                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, lord love a duck, isn't it fancy to have a duck back here.  To be honest, the 
boss read my fight last turn, and his first reaction was, why is Peking Duck 
challenging down so far in recognition.  But when he got to the newsletter, he 
realized it was for the throne, so all is just ducky now.   Hope to see you all again 
next turn, ya hear!

                                             3-time Duelmaster of Xochitlan 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in XOCHITHLAN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, LOUD TOYS 
fought PARRY-SLICE and gained 17 points and contributed to BASH BROS BABY's 2-2-0.  
PARRY-SLICE has lost to LOUD TOYS, falling 12 points, while helping make 
ANYWAYUSLICEIT a 1-3-1 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, PEKING DUCK kept 
UNHOLY AVENGERS' warrior, FRED, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the ANYWAYUSLICEIT stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding ANYWAYUSLICEIT more than any other team we find BASH BROS BABY.  
XOCHITHLAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was DUCKS UNLIMITED's warrior SCROOGE MCDUCK.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  WICKED SLICE from 
ANYWAYUSLICEIT took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 29 points in a 
challenge against SCROOGE MCDUCK.  Even though WICKED SLICE lost the fight, she at 
least came away with a gain of 85 points for challenging on of DUCKS UNLIMITED.  In a 
brave attempt, PLUTO from NEW ORIGINALS challenged up 19 points to fight SUPERSLICE 
from the ANYWAYUSLICEIT stable.  PLUTO perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
won victory over SUPERSLICE and ended up with 17 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
