                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's been a good week for me, personally.  I went to both jobs motivated, put in
my hours, and did my best.  Realizing that this long schedule it temporary makes it
much easier to put up with the double shifts and hard work.  I look forward to it
ending and know that it is just now a matter of time before I can hang up one of
these jobs.
     Long Biggar must have still been hung over from all the partying he was doing
after he received his notice of immortality.  He did nothing but stand there the
entire fight and given how long it took to take him down, his pain sensors were not
working as expected (more evidence of too much alcohol in his blood?).
     Until next time, I'll do what I can to make sure your order gets to you the way
you want it, but if the cook does his worst, it may take a little longer than you
expected.  And he is not known for reading the instructions I leave him.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as BLUVALLEY WARRIORS is 
pushed out of top team by FANDILS, who came from 3rd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  The THE 
27 CLUB guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BLACK BILE fought 
CORBIN ROSS and gained 11 points and contributed to AZURE CLOUDS' 1-2-0.  FINGERS 
BROOKE has lost to SNUFFY, falling 7 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 
1-4-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, THE COOK MESSED UP kept AZURE 
CLOUDS' warrior, VIOLENT ORANGE, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the AZURE CLOUDS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided AZURE CLOUDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FANDILS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CORBIN ROSS from 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

"Friendly"?  That's what you call it, huh?  I've got a different word for it. --

-- What Water?

Shelley Ann -- Don't let your confidence be shaken by my gal.  She is pretty special
out there.  On the other side, you've beaten her twice.  Seems to me you've done a
great job as well, with considerably fewer skills. -- Assur
