                             Notes from the arena champ.

All hail Rocanis yada yada, seems this seat is HOT one turn each it seems yes, yes.
Let's plan on me keeping it a bit longer shall we?  I hope so.  Best of luck to all
less its vs me or the rest of the team.  Hugs and purrs...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ROCANIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as INCONSISTENT FURY is pushed 
out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 20, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, EBRIA GANNET fought BALZEC and gained 24 points and contributed to MIDDLE 
WAY 20's 4-1-0.  FONZETH HILGRA has lost to RIRORNI ASSASSIN, falling 28 points, 
while helping make INCONSISTENT FURY a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on DILILAH 
FRANN this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ROCANIS has a new 
victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Wanton Troll?   
     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 MIDDLE WAY 20 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ROCANIS, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 20 more than any other team we find INCONSISTENT FURY.  
ROCANIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ROCANIS and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ROCANIS again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
