                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Should I get tired of this?  Or should I enjoy it?  Should I protest?  Or should
I take it as a freeby?  Should I moan and groan?  Or should I jump up and down and
shout with pride?
     Well, what would you do with 9 DM crowns?  Or with 59 political points?  Or 46
fight equivalents?  Or with a 33-2 record?
     I'm still thinking....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SNOWBOUND a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The THE MYRMIDONS guild has had a 
4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, MATH fought THRESHPACK and gained 25 points and 
contributed to LIFE IMPACTS' 5-0-0.  THRESHPACK has lost to MATH, falling 11 points, 
while helping make PUBLIC ENEMY a 2-3-0 turn.  Well done, SNOWBOUND, the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 4-H is not as thrilled, being 
challenged 2 times.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between LADIRO MAELS and our 
Duelmaster 4-H, making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and 4-H remains SNOWBOUND's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  PUBLIC ENEMY has cause to stand tall, as they were 
SNOWBOUND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided PUBLIC ENEMY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was LIFE 
IMPACTS.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Ladiro -- Well, three is almost four and you teach the right stuff.  (Miserly, I
might add.) -- 4-H

Threshpack -- Well, I thought I had the formula, but you had too many unknowns for
me.  I wanted to score, but you transposed me!  Thanks for the skills.  Perhaps I
shall take up Literature instead? -- Math

Roland -- I think you showed me who is boss. -- Circle K

Convicted Thief -- Whew! -- Quality

Karnhorn Deserter -- You should have never stepped away. -- Saxaphone

Y'all lifers done good.  Yowser! -- Smitty

Moldar Nay -- You may think it is appropriate, I think it is downright painful to be
hit with one of those things.  Very painful, especially when we fought twice in a
row. -- Thor

Shobart Teegue -- Just remember that it isn't "vicious" when you appear to enjoy it
so much.... *saucy smile* -- Verra

Garuth Holm -- You do realise that a single win is a very small streak, don't you?
No matter, the next time we meet I'll consider throwing the fight for you. -- Rolan

Jenna Kuul -- I have to admit you're getting better, you almost had me in that fight.
Don't get too good, I don't think I'd like to have you beating me up. -- Verra

Shobart Teegue -- I'm not your punching bag you know, I have feelings; and it seems
that this time I felt like winning. -- Beleg Bloodaxe

Synergy -- I don't suppose you happened to get the licence plate number of the truck
that hit me in our fight?  Or was that you? -- Smaug (still in a bit of pain)

Circle K -- My mother always told me to pick on someone my own size, and now,
finally, I have.  Good fight, though I am intrigued by your weapon picks; were you
supposed to be carrying like that? -- Rolan

We dutifully welcome Saxophone. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

4-H -- The way this past month has gone, I haven't been able to manage even THREE Hs
at once, it's been one or two most days.  Exhausting. -- Ladiro Maels
P.S.  Nothing like having sixteen inches of water in the basement!  The sump pump
fell over, it rained like there was no tomorrow, the furnace drowned, and the
humidity in the house was so high the kitchen cabinets were dripping.  Whew!

Thor -- Somehow, I expected a Myrmidon to have a Greek name.  Still, so long as you
lose to me, I don't really care. -- Moldar Nay

Beleg Bloodaxe -- Believe it!  I've got the moves. -- Shobart Teegue

Verra -- Hmm, I seem to be getting better:  Your victory was "unbelievable," the
fight was not called uneven, and I held you to the second minute instead of going
down immediately.  This is good. -- Jenna Kuul, looking for a bright side

Heart of Glass -- Damn, I was going for it, figured if I could even just crack the
darned thing, I'd win.  Gotta work on that. -- Garuth Holm
