                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I accept my 2nd Title on behalf of my teammates, and I devote my 20th, and
hopefully Lord Protector announcement, fight to my fallen teammate, Miller.
     Another story about my namesake, Clara Rose Hodes, eight year old granddaughter
of the boss....
     Clara's grandma was having a chat with her about what granny's childhood was
like.  "We used to ice-skate on the pond outside in the winter.  I had a swing made
from a tire and your great grandpa hung it in a big oak tree in the front yard and we
would swing and laugh for hours.  There were several dogs and cats, and even some
pigs and cows, who were our pet pals.  We had a little pony, Champ, whom we rode all
the time.  We picked wild blackberries in the woods nearby."  The little city girl
was wide-eyed taking this all in.  At last she exclaimed, "I sure wish I'd gotten to
know you sooner, Grandma!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARDIVENT will ever be the same.  And let's see, NIMBLE NIMBUS fought FINGERS 
BROOKE and gained 18 points and contributed to AZURE CLOUDS' 3-0-0.  CORBIN ROSS has 
lost to LEROY, falling 9 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 1-4-0 turn.  
And all eyes were on ARLENE ROSS this turn as she 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 Seaside Manor until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE 27 CLUB 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 THE 27 CLUB 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARDIVENT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

The Red Sands have struck again, taking a Fandil favorite, Miller.  As Tria
Skatchach, the lethal agent said, "It was not Miller time."  We will miss him.  RIP
Miller: 9-9-11-15-9-16-15 mode ST (vl endu, norm dmg)  May the gods PLEASE send some
good recruits my way...? -- Fandil The Wise

Watch out for The 27 Club, top point gainer of the week.  Kudos! -- WOF

Tria -- And to think I was getting to like you.... -- Miller

Arlene Ross -- Another great battle and I was the luckiest.  I salute you. -- Clara
Rose

Corbin Ross -- Will you give me a chance to swirv, Buddy? -- Irvin

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

Clara Rose -- I passed that little story about your boss's granddaughter along to my
boss's mother--who also claims to be thirty-nine--and she just about swallowed her
teeth laughing.  Which would've been quite a trick, because they are her OWN teeth,
not dentures that might come loose.  Thanks for the shared laugh. -- Joubert Klee

Swirvin Irvin -- A neighbor with a garden does not feel so, ah, enthusiastic about
the groundhogs. -- Joubert Klee

Nimble Nimbus -- I always am hard on killers.  It's a proactive effort to stay alive.
-- Fingers Brooke

Irvin -- You didn't swirv fast enough. -- Corbin Ross

Clara Rose -- Better you than me! -- Arlene Ross

Robert Johnson -- Twenty-seven, forsooth!  I felt like there were twenty-seven of you
beating on me! -- Fingers Brooke

Ghost of Miller -- An unlucky match for you.  And an even unluckier trip to the
Infirmary. -- Tria Skathach
P.S.  I knew it was wrong for them to higher vampires as orderlies.

Pigpen -- Well, I'd hoped for a better beginning, but... I can figure on rising from
this low point, right? -- Luiza Klu
