                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good luck, Anastasius, and thanks for the warm place... you beat me yes, but yet
I win!!  Who can be against me?  I do rule forever, or at least for one last extatic
month?  Let's enjoy every minute of it.

Zoum, not a duelmaster, but The Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt FRATSFA will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DARQUE AGES is pushed out of top team by WAH CHING, who came from 3rd 
with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, CONFLICT fought HU YAN ZHUO and gained 22 
points and contributed to DRAGONS GUARD II's 2-1-0.  URSILA RILVAR has lost to NOBLE 
ASSASSIN, falling 15 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 8 a 2-1-0 turn.  LI KUI 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone BLOOD AND GUTS!'s 
warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ZOUM LA BOUSE 
remains FRATSFA'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!   
     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 JADE WARRIORS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on FRATSFA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided JADE WARRIORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WAH 
CHING.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was WAH CHING's 
warrior LI KUI.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.  Is it really true that FRATSFA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in FRATSFA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Dargon -- Just like a man!  You finished quick with me on top.  Let's try something
different next time, Big Boy. (wink) -- Hateful Hasta

Set Bhat Po -- You didn't let me show you all I've got, you were done so soon.  Tsk,
tsk. -- Petulant Pansy

Urban -- I admit that I love a man who can go and go and go.  That was the big one
for me!  Congrats on the win. -- Caustic Crocus

Zoum Le Bouse -- It is always nice to see my best client on top of the arena.  A
salute to The Duelmaster. -- Lady Fern
P.S.  My Flower Girl Team is anxiously awaiting that five on one you promised. (wink)

Master Darque!  We are all glad to see you back after the operation.  Come on over to
The Flower Shoppe and get your needed therapy. -- Lady Fern

Caustic Crocus -- I know you Flowers are unfamiliar with the concept, and I wouldn't
want to dictate what you do in private, but what *I* do in private is with guys.
Quite exclusively. -- Salina Rees

Velvet Rose -- In line with the above statement, know that the devastation I wrought
on you was strictly a question of combat.  Anything personal you will have to find
elsewhere.  Well, okay, friendship is possible, but not a closer relationship.  The
way these Flowers keep trying to push themselves on everyone gets old, you know? --
Salina Rees

     Grumpy today, aren't you?

Li Kui -- Oh, darn.  I thought you were a nut or something, but that's Li Chi, isn't
it? -- Ursila Rilvar

This is not the introduction to the arena that I had hoped for. -- Ellis Tate
