                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I would say "hail and farewell" to the Lazy Lookout, but I see we're traveling
to the Isle together.  I hadn't expected to one-shot him.  Of course, I hadn't
expected to graduate, either.

                                    Dacimousel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RODEKI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, ROCKHOG JR fought THE USEROUS MERCHANT and gained 15 points 
and contributed to DELVERS' 1-4-0.  EACHAM has lost to COLDFISHFINGER, falling 1 
points, while helping make DELVERS a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some honor, ALMOST 
PRETTY now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of RODEKI.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  LAZY LOOKOUT must have surprised DUNGEON CELL this turn, after they sent 
him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  Is it really true that 
RODEKI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Fat chance. -- Lazy Lookout

made," then you must count as such, for you succeeded at your task. -- Stonecrusher

Big Disappointment -- Yeah. -- Eacham

Coldfishfinger -- And all the other fingers, too, given the weather. -- Faroman

Sticky Fingers -- Yes, and it was MY win and MY skills they stuck to this time. --
