                             Notes from the arena champ.

     M. Chardinee.  Ah, well.

                                    Moondark

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRICORUS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  WILDCATS stable has parlayed this 
turn's 3-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  
Good work, guys!  And let's see, PUMA fought SALMGEDAN and gained 20 points and 
contributed to WILDCATS' 3-0-0.  THE CAPTAIN has lost to TALL BULL, falling 7 points, 
while helping make VENTURE BROS. a 0-3-0 turn.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to KUNG FU MASTER, and MOONDARK has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Silver Chalice?   
     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 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 WILDCATS. 
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.   
     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
