                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm come back home and then I'm gone before you can even wag a tail left to
right and back again!!!  That's right... your favorite Devil of a Dog is saying
farewell and leaving for Talahya to represent this city and hopefully bring home
future tournament glory.
     I know you're curious, so I'll lift my leg and give you a peek as to what makes
me such a nasty canine:  5-12-9-21-15-4-17 normal/normal 12/22/33/22/26/28 decise
favorite learn.  Plus 2att, +1rip, +3def.  SH fave (blech) but Marma Duke modified my
favorite rythem to HI/VH L/D so I'm a bit of a freak... but if you've fought me
recently, you'd already know that!!!
     What a long, strange doggy trip it's been, having died, coming back from the
dead, and now becoming immortal!!!!!

Until next time my dogs....
     Same Doggy Time,
          Same Doggy Place,
               Same Doggy Channel,
Your Duelmaster,
     Devil Dog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KATI-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, WHYTE SQUALL fought KHALHUMS DWARF and gained 17 points and 
contributed to THE STORM FRONT's 3-2-0.  GAY DECEIVER has lost to VISITING ORC, 
falling 13 points, while helping make WANDERERS a 2-3-0 turn.  This turn DEVIL DOG 
Dark Arena Challenged WURM KIN in what was KATI-TEI's Title bout.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DEVIL DOG remains KATI-TEI's top warrior for 
another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE STORM FRONT has cause to stand 
tall, as they were KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided THE STORM FRONT stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was DA DOG POWNDAZ.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was THE STORM FRONT's warrior DUST DEVIL.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  TRIPLE DAWG DARE, does your manager know 
you're challenging down 22 points to fight DUST DEVIL from THE STORM FRONT?  It pains 
me to see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  TRIPLE DAWG DARE overcame 
DUST DEVIL, as if it surprises anyone.   
     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.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  DEVIL DOG was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes 
you think, no?  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, KATI-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in KATI-TEI, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
