                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sooo sorry about no column last turn, but I just couldn't be arsed to care.  Too
many other things to do.
     I must say, Earl, it felt very nice to finally put one of you brick types on the
floor.  Very, very, very nice.
     I'm hoping to get the invite soon, so push off!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARDIVENT will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DEATHTONGUE is pushed out of top team by SERPENT'S HOLD, who came from 
2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  THE MAJOR has lost to RON BURGUNDY, falling 12 points, 
while helping make DEATHTONGUE a 2-3-1 turn.  And all eyes were on SERPENTITO this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARDIVENT has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Victory Tavern 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.  DEATHTONGUE has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided DEATHTONGUE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FANDILS.  Anyone surprised?  In a brave attempt, THE COOK MESSED UP from BASH BROS. 
WAITRESS challenged up 19 points to fight MARCI FOOTE from the BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 
stable.  THE COOK MESSED UP perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she won victory 
over MARCI FOOTE and ended up with 30 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

What a bumpkin round this was!  Everyone beat up on my poor Fandils.  Naughty,
naughty.  Fran Bran gobbled up Earl on his own challenge.  Katerina Collin quickly
banged Yvonne on another Fandil challenge.  Frat Punk outdrank W.D. Purdy.  The Major
ignored Monsignor Mark's prayers.  Congrats to the winners; they fought the best. --
Fandil The Wise

Not me, boss.  I made reptile stew and a lizardy belt out of that Serpentito.  I did.
Take THAT, Khisanth. -- Mildred Leona

Congratulations to Fran Bran, Duelmistress of The Red Sands.  Well done, Technogeek.
-- Fandil The Wise (One would think one could easily graduate a 44+ FE ripper.  What
say?)

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- WOF

Hello, all.  WOF informed me that this place truly upholds the Andorian standard.  My
waitresses will follow the Andorian traditions, but know that I am mostly Delarquan
by nature and if I am first DC'd, I will assume you want the same back. --
Assurnasirbanipal

Scales -- I finally bring you water and it bounces right off. -- What Water?

Lou -- It wasn't my fault your order was wrong.  I wrote it down correctly, but the
cook messed up.  You had no right to take it out on me.

Wise old one.  Ah, 3-0 against the Fandil, now that's a nice turn.  :D -- Technogeek

W.D Purdy -- Mind if I pop this bottle cap on your helm? -- Frat punk

Mollie Scot -- Mommie? -- Reagan

M. Mark -- Pray harder. -- The Major

Dew -- I did it, wasn't that great. -- Bobbi Jo

Yvonne -- I wouldn't really have buried you in the sand.  It isn't deep enough.  I
was just kicking it around looking for a dropped initiative. -- Katerina Collin

Coral -- I haven't even gotten to the bottom of the fight, and already I can guess
how it will come out....  Yep.  Oh, well. -- Lila Deane

Reagan -- It's like Katerina said, I wasn't really trying to bury you in the sand,
see?  Applause rang out and startled me, and I jumped, and that just made it LOOK
like I was kicking sand over you. -- Mollie Scot

A Ruthless Jaywalker.  Why do they never get hit by trucks? -- Marci Foote

The Cook Messed Up -- Maybe, but not badly.  Not today, anyway. -- Lou Bigge

Mildred Leona -- Well, good.  I'm glad somebody got fun out of it.  But next time, my
turn. -- Katerina Collin
