                             Notes from the arena champ.

All Hail Rocanis!  Greatest and most overlooked gem in all the land!  What a way to
achieve the top dog honors.  At least for a day.  I heard that we, Inconsisant Fury,
are going to try and recruit that Ronari Assassin.  Best of luck ato all, less vs
mind of course.

                     Fonzeth Hulgra

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ROCANIS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as MIDDLE WAY 20 is pushed out of top team by INCONSISTENT FURY, who came 
from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, DEBRA FARIN fought MAGE'S APPRENTICE 
and gained 20 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 20's 2-3-0.  ABELINDA CHASE has 
lost to RIA ROSEDANCER, falling 2 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 20 a 2-3-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and FONZETH HILGRA 
remains ROCANIS' top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Grub & Rub Bar and 
Bistro until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  THEM has cause to stand tall, as they were 
ROCANIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided THEM stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was INCONSISTENT FURY.  
Anyone surprised?  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  AIRSLICER DAN, does your manager know you're 
challenging down 23 points to fight EBRIA GANNET from MIDDLE WAY 20?  It pains me to 
see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  AIRSLICER DAN defeated EBRIA 
GANNET, as if it surprises anyone.   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
