                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Surprisingly to me, I am here again.  I did not really think there was anyone at
"the top" that I could defeat.  I guess I owe it all to prayer and practice.  Prayer
and practice.
     I overheard Fandil The Wise say the other night that he has never had an uglier
set of warriors on the team.  Since I can see that Mildred Leona and Yvonne are fine
looking human specimens, I suspect he was referring to our "warrior ability."
Perhaps these starting stats are what prompted his comments:
ST   12,13,14,16,17
CN    9,15,16,19,19
SZ   10,11,13,14,14
WT    5, 5,10,15,17
WL    9, 9,17,19,20
SP    3, 5, 9,10,12
DF    7, 7, 9,10,10
What do you think?
     I truly expect that you will have a different Duelmaster next round.  This is
not going to be easy for me.  Prayer and practice; prayer and practice.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WOE TO WHITECHAPEL, 
since DEATHTONGUE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  
DEATHTONGUE turned their 2-3-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, FANDILS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MILDRED LEONA win a fight and 
gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MILDRED LEONA beat UP FROM THE SEA and UP FROM 
THE SEA lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BONE MILL challenged ARDIVENT's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARDIVENT 
may be getting bland, as BROTHER JEROME stays top dog in the city.  The Seaside 
Manor, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From ARDIVENT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
FANDILS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was WOE TO WHITECHAPEL.  Ha ha ha ha!  
OLIVER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, ANCHORMAN was 
challenged by FRAN BRAN, who was ranked 57 points below him.  And, oof!  FRAN BRAN 
saw stars around hers helmet, after losing the fight, and disappointing the crowds, I 
might add.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARDIVENT to get a drink than The Seaside 
Manor!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of ARDIVENT.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
