                             Notes from the arena champ.

      They should have let me bury M. Chardinee in the sand.  Who knows what might
have sprouted from that seed, eh?

                                         Walrus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail STORMCROWE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, BEAST HAMMER fought FROSTBITE and gained 18 points and 
contributed to MUTANT HAMMERZ's 4-1-0.  WHITE BEAR has lost to LADY WINTER, falling 
11 points, while helping make ARCTIC WASTES a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, ANGEL HAMMER now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of STORMCROWE.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Shadow's Fountain until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ARCTIC WASTES has cause to stand tall, as they were 
STORMCROWE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided ARCTIC WASTES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DARQUE 
FORCES.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was NORTHERN 
LIGHTS' warrior DAN MACK GRU.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that STORMCROWE 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.  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 STORMCROWE again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Angel Hammer -- It will never be said that I did not try to stop your winning streak.
I seem to be on the downward spiral myself.  It would have been much appreciated if
you would have taught me a skill or two, but them are the breaks in the arena
sometimes. -- Raggedy Ann

Beast Hammer -- My manager says the outcome of that fight was truly a surprise!  I
have no idea what he means, afterall, The Bride is always supposed to be in the
spotlight! -- The Bride

Muskeg -- The match began horridly, but I did like the finish. -- Yumalesca

Impact -- Short, sweet, and I came out on top.  Just the way this girl likes it! --
Yuffie

Sudden Fury -- Welcome to Stormcrowe!  We hope you plan on staying with us for a
while. -- Master Darque, manager of Darque Forces

Eggbeaters Anon -- I extend the same invitation to you, but I'm suspecting you are
only here for tourney purposes.  Welcome just the same, and do come and join us apart
from tourney prep sometime! -- Master Darque

Master Darque -- I don't know that I would call it abuse.  I think we are even in
matchups (2-2) in all arenas.  Stormcrowe is a small arena so I am sure we shall be
encountering each other for a while to come. :) -- Wretch

Dan Mack Gru -- Not only does my team continue to lose to you, you keep learning way
more then them too.  If this keeps up it won't be worth the effort to finally beat
you. -- Wretch

Sudden Fury --  Welcome to our nice little arena.  Sorry to have been the cause of a
couple of you loses. -- Wretch mgr of Arctic Wastes

Overwhelm -- Maybe it will take you a little while to grow into your name.  Good
luck. -- White Bear

Yumalesca -- Just about 2 in a row.  You are lucky I break easy. -- Muskeg

Whirlwind -- You may have lost but you were a good student.  Take the lesson and grow
from it. -- Tundra

Cannonball Hammer -- 8-4-0 vs 2-0-0.  I know you are shocked that you lived to get
past me but sometimes people just sneak by.  lol.  I think I will avoid you for a
while. -- Glacier

Dan Mack Gru -- First you kill my predecessor then you smack me around.  I don't
think I like you. -- Arctic Fox

Hammer -- Hurry up and get those high FE adepts moved up.  Kinda hard to move out of
challenger initiates with you there.  :P -- Wretch

Arctic Fox -- Ah, we're a deadly pair, aren't we?  Such is life in the arena. -- Dan
Mack Gru

Aunty Entity -- To think that I have to listen to the carping of a beanpole....
(sigh)  Good fight. -- Lady Winter

I wish they wouldn't let dwarves study kung-fu.  It makes me twitchy, they way they
go around, ostentatiously showing their empty hands, and then chop people up. --
Frostbite

The Cult Member had better go back and pray to his petty godling for a little skill,
because he certainly showed none in that "fight." -- Gelidnia Hale

Muskeg -- (respectfully)  I will be here, so keep coming. -- Dan Mack Gru
