                             Notes from the arena champ.

I'm getting tired, here sitting on the throne facing NPC's without relief!  I guess I 
need to hurry up and earn immortality so I can stop doing all these shifts!

                                          -- Extra Long Shift

                                      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.  And let's see, DISTURBIA fought 
OFF SEASON and gained 14 points and contributed to BOOK OF THOMAS' 3-2-2.  REGULAR 
SEASON has lost to CRUSHING BELIAL, falling 6 points, while helping make BASH BROS 
SPORTS a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on BONESCRAPER this turn as he ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  SNOWBOUND has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory 
Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the WORLD BLADES 12 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided WORLD BLADES 12 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was BASH BROS SPORTS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SLUSHY 
ICE from BASH BROS SPORTS was SNOWBOUND's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.  Always good to rest in SNOWBOUND, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
