                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Somehow I didn't expect a Shew to be shorter than I am.  Odd.  But I was faster,
so it's okay.

                                       Vargoi

P.S.  Yeah, I know, the real secret is that you couldn't think of anything to put
into another column.  It can be tough after a while.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  And let's see, PHAEDRA fought KALMBARGH and 
gained 10 points and contributed to AMAZON ELITE's 2-3-1.  KALMBARGH has lost to 
PHAEDRA, falling 9 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 3-2-0 turn.  And all 
eyes were on BILGE RAT this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
TRICORUS has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Blue Dolphin Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the DARK HORSEMEN 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
AMAZON ELITE.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  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
