                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm certainly surprised to be sitting here on the throne of Ardivent after
suffering ingloriously at the hands of numerous plate-clad opponents.  It seems I've
finally gotten the knack with this longsword, whether or not I'm well suited to it.
Arlene Ross, that fight could've gone either way and I will hopefully be around for a
few more turns in order for you to get a rematch. It'd be great to punch my ticket to
the Isle and fight in the tournament as an immortal Challenger, but at this point I'd
just be happy to go somewhere safe and lift some weights for a while.

Jimi Hendrix

                                      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, FEHEADRAE fought 
SADIE and gained 17 points and contributed to WRATHMEN's 5-0-0.  SADIE has lost to 
FEHEADRAE, falling 14 points, while helping make FANDILS a 1-2-0 turn.  Well done, 
ARDIVENT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps JIMI 
HENDRIX is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  SNUFFY challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE 27 CLUB's warrior.  And not 
without some honor, SNUFFY 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?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the FANDILS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding FANDILS more than any other team we find WRATHMEN.  ARDIVENT, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     I like this place, ARDIVENT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
