                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings!  Apologies for not having a column or ads in a while.  Hoping to do better 
now that Summer is coning to a close...

My goal with this team was to try and graduated all five original members.  Shouldn'be 
known better making two of them AB's.

Tynarea 10(1)-6-13-17-17-5-17 AB, LO, vl/mo, lunge tactic, decise learns.

Mattheas 21-4-9-17-15-11-7 BA, LG, hi/lo, bash tactic, decise learns.

Feheadrae 11(2)-14-7-15-15-3-21 AB.

The other two are similar.  Not 'godlike' but solid.  Best team rollup I've ever 
received.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARDIVENT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ALEKHINE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ALEKHINE beat 
BAERUS and BAERUS lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as SOLAARRIN stays top dog in the city. 
The Victory Tavern, 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?  DUNGEON CELL was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FANDILS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  USURPER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

OAB, hurry up and get those Dungeon Cells tourney prepped or out of here. You are 
messing up my home life! (wink) -- WOF

Al right! My Fandils must have done something right. Top Team On The Move! Fifteen big 
points on a 1-2? How very interesting. -- Fandil The Wise

The Maiden or Dungeon Cells, hah! It is not all youth and long lovely legs and 
vegetarianism, and sexy moves, No way! Sometimes wisdom wins it all. -- Grandma Clara

Headsman and Inquisitor, perhaps we will file a complaint to The Commission that you 
guys were too good for us? Nah, we will just say 'congrats and well done". -- Mildred 
Leona and Lincoln Hills

Health. Humility. Honor. The Red Sands await us all. -- WOF
