     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as WE GOT GAME is pushed out 
of top team by WRATHMEN, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  The THE 27 CLUB 
guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, FREAKY TAH fought THE MAIDEN and 
gained 28 points and contributed to THE 27 CLUB's 4-1-1.  LINCOLN HILLS has lost to 
EXPERT, falling 17 points, while helping make FANDILS a 1-2-0 turn.  And all eyes 
were on USURPER this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARDIVENT has a 
new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Seaside Manor uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  WEIRD STUDENTS 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 WEIRD STUDENTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FANDILS. 
Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The manager of DUNGEON CELL will not be pleased to learn that THE 
MAIDEN, a 4-1-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands of THE 27 CLUB's FREAKY TAH.  
The bigger they are, as they say.  And what I say is that FREAKY TAH had better watch 
out for DUNGEON CELL, seeing as THE MAIDEN felled he this turn.  A brave warrior does 
not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
