                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If you did not carry your heart in your hand, Heart, you would do better in the
arena.  And since I'm graduating, I don't mind if you do better in the arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  On their very first turn, OLDER BY FAR had a 
4-0-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ZENSU.  And 
let's see, I SAY NO fought LINAEA DEANE and gained 20 points and contributed to OLDER 
BY FAR's 4-0-0.  LINAEA DEANE has lost to I SAY NO, falling 11 points, while helping 
make BEYOND THE PALE a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, CARINA 
LINZ kept ZENSU's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, CAPTAIN PLANET has lost WIND, 
and ZENSU is bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  Is it really true 
that ZENSU has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZENSU again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

The Venomous Concubine paralyzes me.  I think it's her dark and deadly beauty.  Or
maybe a fatal charm or something. -- Corbie Lek

Corbie mucks around and loses to a feeble woman who smirks at him, but I make
mincemeat out of M. Chardinee. -- Corbett Josye

Rhomba -- Excuse me, you're a Shew?  Ah, maybe a deprived childhood and I shouldn't
mention it? -- Cormek Deane

Loot and Plunder -- I always did like that part. -- Linaea Deane

it and that we will see you there!
