                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't like this Noble Assassin person.  He was sneaking around.  Any dog knows
that is suspicious behavior.  I bit him good.

                                        Garm

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARADI will ever be the same.  And let's see, READY EDDIE fought CATIPILLAR 
and gained 11 points and contributed to RED DOG GANG's 4-1-0.  CATIPILLAR has lost to 
READY EDDIE, falling 9 points, while helping make BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS a 0-5-0 turn.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT GARM is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blind 
Cyclops Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS has lost 
WASP, and ARADI is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  We'd like to 
remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; 
and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, ARADI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ARADI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
