                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A worthy effort, Qiong Ying, but today was my day.  Perhaps tomorrow will be
yours.

                                    Worzeel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TROCAR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The ASIAN INVASION guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in 
the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, WYON 
fought WARRIOR-MAGE and gained 20 points and contributed to KIWI CONNECTION II's 
4-1-0.  DESERT PEARL has lost to DACRE, falling 9 points, while helping make TRADERS 
OF TROCAR a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on TONG PAK FU this turn as he ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  TROCAR has a new victor!  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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 TROCAR has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, TROCAR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TROCAR 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
