                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Fare thee well, Ardivent!
     The graduation of Ruy Lopez turns the page on We Got Game's participation in 
Ardivent.  I'm going to miss you all; this arena has presented by far the highest 
level of competition I've faced in 30+ years of play.
     The Consortium, it's been a pleasure sparring with you in the personal ads.  And 
on the sands.
     Those many of you have come and gone, look us up at the Isle!
     As for Ruy Lopez, he graduates at 12(+2)-8-12-17-21-5-11 with Masters in Init, 
Attack and Defense.  
     Decent favs at HI HI Short Spear. +4 Defense.  He'll fight on.

                                          Adieu, 

                                          Chess Master

                                      SPY REPORT

     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 GRANDMA CLARA win a fight and gain 6 points, terribly.  Looks like 
ARDIVENT has some guts at least, RUY LOPEZ the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  RUY LOPEZ Dark Arena Challenged SPYMASTER for ARDIVENT's 
Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, 
ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as RUY LOPEZ stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a 
very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, ARDIVENT?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WE GOT GAME, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
FANDILS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  WE GOT GAME has cause to pause today, as 
RUY LOPEZ was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  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.  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
