                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "Out, out brief candle.  Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player who struts
and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.  "Tis a tale told by an
idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing....
          Mildred Leona, DMVII

P.S.  This quote, from memory, was brought to you courtesy of Mrs.Vaughn's Literature
class, circa 1962.  Memories can last a long, longtime.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARDIVENT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, SHELLEY ANN fought 
AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 17 points and contributed to FANDILS' 5-0-0.  MARCI FOOTE 
has lost to MONSIGNOR MARK, falling 1 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 
2-3-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, MILDRED LEONA kept BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS' warrior, LILA DEANE, from claiming the throne.  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the BLUVALLEY WARRIORS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided BLUVALLEY WARRIORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FANDILS.  
Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that ARDIVENT has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ARDIVENT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ARDIVENT, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

We Fandils are taking a vacation.  Kudos to Mildred Leona.  Back soon. -- Fandil The
Wise

Mildred Leona -- It's hard.  Gladiating is hard.  And the Commission is mysterious in
their choice of who to graduate and who not.  I agree that you should be elevated
right along with me.  After all, we've done so much together! -- Katerina
P.S.  I'm not going to leave Ardivent, even though I won't have to gladiate any
longer.  I want to start a dress shop.
P.P.S.  I'm not sure I *know* any parry skills.

Shelley -- It was probably Fate. -- Ghost of Mingo Snee

Earl -- You're doing this on purpose, aren't you? -- Lila Deane

Monsignor Mark -- Well, I WILL NOT!  I don't CARE.  I WON'T! -- Long Biggar
P.S.  I wonder if throwing a tantrum would help?  Maybe I can study with that guy
over in Rodeki, the master of Tantru Yoga?

Stupid Happy Peasant!  My kind of opponent. -- Marci Foote
