                             Notes from the arena champ.

That was a lot better than losing to a standbye!  Thanks for the confidence boost Earl!  

Recruitment will most likely continue next turn.  These two... well, their names 
pretty much says it all.  Need to get at least one decent guy in order to keep my 
interest here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, BLAHH fought POKORNA and gained 13 points and contributed to 
WRATHMEN's 3-1-0.  DEEP BLUE has lost to EXPERT, falling 7 points, while helping make 
WE GOT GAME a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, BAERUS kept 
ARDIVENT's warrior, NOBLE ASSASSIN, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?  
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  WRATHMEN 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 WRATHMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WE GOT 
GAME.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CANTEX from FANDILS was 
ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, PETROSIAN from WE 
GOT GAME challenged up 24 points to fight CANTEX from the FANDILS stable.  PETROSIAN 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated CANTEX and ended up with 24 
recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ARDIVENT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Baerus, I kinda knew in the back of my mind that you were better than me, but I am 
still mad that you had to show me. Grrrrr. -- Earl
P.S. But I do salute you, Duelmaster

Congrats to Baerus, Duelmaster of The Red Sands. -- Fandil The Wise

Ruy Lopez, no fair; I don't know chess! -- Mildred Leona

Visiting Orc, you embarrassed me! I sure hope Fandil The Wise doesn't send me to the 
Bad Place. -- Lincoln Hills

Happy Peasant and Ambitious Guard, thanks for providing the cannon fodder. -- Cantex 
and Grandma Clara

Health. Humility. Honor. The day will come when The Red Sands claim us all. -- WOF

Mildred Leona -- Thank you for the skills.  An early Christmas present, and JUST what 
I asked Santa for. -- Ruy Lopez

Chynarae -- One would think I'd have learned from the beating I took the first time. 
Apparently, one would be wrong.  Best 3 falls out of 5? -- Petrosian

Expert -- That duel literally went EXACTLY how I drew it up.  Until that end part. The 
losing part.  That was different. -- Pokorna

Fandil -- Belated Happy Birthday!  (I hope to be 70, one day). -- Chessmaster

Pokorna -- Nice staying power sweetheart! -- Expert

Petrosian -- Didn't think I packed that much of a punch. -- Chynarae
