                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've always thought Clara Rose was a fine figure of woman, one I could see
without a telescope, but THIS!  To leave ME with the title is going a bit far.  Why,
next thing you know, I'll be GRADUATING, and I'm not READY.  Too much responsibility,
and I'm not done sowing my wild oats.

                                   Joubert Klee

                                      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 THE 27 CLUB is pushed out 
of top team by FANDILS, who came from 4th with a 3-1-0 this turn.  FANDILS stable has 
parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, MMMMBUHHH fought JIM and gained 28 
points and contributed to YOU DON'T SAY!'s 1-0-1.  SNUFFY has lost to ARLENE ROSS, 
falling 5 points, while helping make FANDILS a 3-1-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, IRVIN now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ARDIVENT.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Seaside Manor until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the AZURE CLOUDS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
AZURE CLOUDS more than any other team we find FANDILS.  ARDIVENT, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that JIM from 
THE 27 CLUB was ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  JIM has departed ARDIVENT, leaving THE 27 CLUB without their 14-12-0 
warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  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.  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

Joubert Klee, a salute to thee.
Bluvalley Duelmaster, schooled by a master.
     Fandil The Wise

Please, please please don't match me with Nimble Nimbus, MUGs.  Did you see his
record?!  No way.  Puleeeeeeeeeeeze! -- Miller

All right!  I see I am alive!  I made it through another tournament.  I sure hope I
earned a skill. -- Irvin

I'll Be Right Back and What Water? -- Kudos.  Big kudos! You took out DA Monsters.
Well done! -- WOF

Polite Beggar -- Thanks for being so polite for my very first arena fight. -- Miller

Ah, yes.  My name is listed on the arena newsletter.  I made it through The Mailer
alive. -- Leroy (obviously feeling a great sense of relief)

Joubert Klee -- You were the better warrior and deserved the win and the title.
Salute. -- Clara Rose

M. Chardinee -- We enjoyed all fourteen minutes of our combined two wins over you.
What a nice guy! -- Irvin and Snuffy

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

She may not be a great waitress, but she surprised me with her win in the Dark Arena.
What Water?: 13-9-15-15-9-14-9 B, Poor/Great HI/LO MS
Estimated skills at graduation: 22/10/23/6/3/23

Farewell for now, Ardivent.  I should be back at some point, but for now, my
priorities lie elsewhere.  It's been fun. -- Assur
P.S.  My new waitresses all look like your typical new recruits.  We'll see how their
initial interviews and tryouts go to see whether they'll make my team or not.
P.P.S.  I should have known what would happen when I send a Waitress named "I'll Be
Right Back" away.

Mmmmbuhhh -- Well, *I* don't say that. -- Tria Skathach

Wait a minute!  Except for Joubert, we ALL lost?  That's so unfair!  He'll make wait
us on him, do the dishes, pick up his smelly socks, all that yucky stuff.  How can
that be fair? -- Arlene Ross for the rest of the Bluvalley Warriors
