                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's there--Let's plan for four, shall we--yes--why, you ask--cause I'm a
slasher with a big as. *gulp* -- Linkin Logger

                                      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 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, MERVIN OLDES fought KASPAR and 
gained 19 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 20's 4-1-0.  KASPAR has lost to MERVIN 
OLDES, falling 13 points, while helping make MEN OF STEEL a 1-3-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and LINKIN LOGGER remains ROCANIS' top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  STRAIGHT UP THUG 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 STRAIGHT UP THUG stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was INCONSISTENT FURY.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  THEM made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they sent WHOMP, 
with a record of 18-8-0, to WHOMP death.  Farewell, his.  THEM has some questions to 
answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, WHOMP, who had a record of 18-8-0?' 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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe
