                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, yes. Another DM Title. Lucky me. Lucky number six. And, most importantly, I 
am still alive. Who'd a thunk it?
     With 6 DMs, 36 PPs, a 15-4 record, and a slight smattering of luck, I should get 
my invite next turn. So I will say it early - whew! Just stay alive, Leroy. That's 
what I tell myself.
     In anticipation of graduation, despite the cringes on my teammates faces, I shall 
reveal to you the full birth stats of the current Team Fandil.

don't bury me in The Red Sands,

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see THE MAIDEN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
HEADSMAN beat MILDRED LEONA and MILDRED LEONA lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MATTHEAS takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Seaside Manor, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARDIVENT's 
trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  WE GOT GAME was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like 
FANDILS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MATTHEAS was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next 
guy, but hey DUNGEON CELL, whyja send MODEL PRISONER to the Dark Arena, look at hers 
record, huh?  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ARDIVENT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Wow! I am so proud of Uncle Leroy. What a fine six-time Duelmaster we Fandils have. -- 
Fandil The Wise

Scorpio, it is quite unlikely that you will find that I or The Consortium is running 
two teams in Ardivent because we are not. The Red Sands have only The Fandils 
representing The Consortium. Feel better? -- WOF

P-Nut, I just think that is so crass of you (and everyone else) to do that to an old 
lady. Pshaw on you. -- Grandma Clara

Black Chaos, too much black; not enough chaos. Thanks for the win. -- Mildred Leona

Tynarae, I know. I know. But if not you, then who? -- Uncle Leroy

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