     "It's a treasure map," Joseph George explained helpfully.  "X marks the spot."
     "I can see what it is," Harby muttered.  "And it's a snare and a delusion is
what it is.  A treasure hidden in Sibikhas?  And nobody who lives there has found
it?"
     "Sibikhas is deserted," Anvil cut in.
     "Just because the arena is closed doesn't mean the TOWN is closed," Harby
argued.  "And there are some mighty tough nuts still hanging around there, so even if
there WAS a treasure, and you could find it, your chances of getting out of town with
both your life and the treasure are not good."
     "You are such a spoil-sport," Redcap muttered, shaking his head sadly.  "You
worry and fret because we're short on cash, and then Joseph finds this very possible
treasure map, and you don't want us to go looking?"
     "I've been over the mountain a few times," the manager retorted.  "I'm not so
naive any more as some people I might mention."
     "What if we get some of the other gladiators to go along?" Joseph George
suggested.  "That would spread the risk around more, and the expense of outfitting
the expedition, and--"
     "And mean smaller shares for everyone who FINDS anything," Anvil cut in again.
"I don't like that idea."
    "You never like ideas that mean sharing," the Silver Lady noted.  "So what?  And
also, who asked you?  Joseph's the one who found the map, and if HE is willing to
share, then we share.  I bet one of those Dealers might come along.  There've got to
be other people here in Rodeki as bored and broke as we are."
     "But are they as dumb and gullible?" Harby muttered.  He sighed and looked at
his gladiators mournfully.  "You're going to do this, aren't you?  No matter what I
say."
     Downer nodded.  "Yeah, I think we are."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RODEKI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, JADE fought DOWNER and gained 17 
points and contributed to THE SOVEREIGN's 2-3-0.  DOWNER has lost to JADE, falling 13 
points, while helping make DELVERS a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and 21 remains RODEKI'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 Welcome Wench 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.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
DELVERS' warrior ANVIL.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster! 
In a brave attempt, GO FISH from DEALER'S CHOICE challenged up 23 points to fight 
LONG-N-SLIM from the THE SOVEREIGN stable.  GO FISH perhaps got hers just desserts, 
seeing as she was beat by LONG-N-SLIM and ended up with 46 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  THE SOVEREIGN has sent IKE 
NIGHTSHIELD to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the 
memory.  A farewell moment, if you please, LORD MARCUS SKY of THE SOVEREIGN has been 
sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  A brave warrior does not 
carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider 
well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Anvil -- Nice fight and grats on the learn. -- 21

Scorpio -- You know, your shit talking would be more impressive if you were to
actually win a fight. -- Coach

Jade -- I thought you were going to move for a second, but no.  Thanks for the
skills.... rofl -- Go Fish

Delvers -- Grats, you don't have the worst record in the arena anymore. -- Dealer's
Choice

Coach -- You're STILL all over the front page like ice on a highway!  Graduate some
of these guys. -- Harby
P.S.  Actually, I suppose it's a combination of good management and Small Arena
Syndrome.

Two-three, again.  Small Arena Syndrome at work.  We can live with it.  And that was
with no standbys! -- Harby

Beer -- Okay, I shouldn't have drunk that.  I have a weakness for it--and from it. --
