     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARADI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, RED DOG GANG, since THE 
ELITE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see JAWS win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as ZOLO takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blind Cyclops Inn, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARADI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ARADI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  UNNAMEABLES the most avoided team? 
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like THE ELITE avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARADI to get a drink than The Blind Cyclops 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Arenamaster Harkon/Scorpio -- We will nonetheless "Announce Ourselves," we are Metal
Meltdown, managed by Destitute Noble.  We have served Aradi proudly over the years,
produced many graduates, and one Tournament Champion, Rattlesnake Shake.  We hope to
be sticking around for a while! -- Ace of Spades

     Excellent. -- Harkon

Elite -- I bring forth good and bad news to you.  I'm in talks  about closing down
this stable soon.  Good news is that once Finbar become Lord Protector, I'm moving on
making you all free. -- Scorpio

What if we don't want to be free? -- Lady Aksana *clearly pissed and teary eyed*

Well then you can hold down the stable until I return. -- Scorpio

Zolo -- You'll probably graduate first, but I'm thinking of retiring you.  You could
oversee the Elite if you'd like. -- Scorpio

It would be me pleasure, with me old budy Nukkels not around, me spirit is sad. --
Zolo

Understood, good Dwarf. -- Scorpio

Kitana -- That leaves you, what's your choice? -- Scorpio

To help Zolo. -- Kitana Suki

Kitana -- Very well.  Bevo, we're going to take a walk.  You're just not cut out for
this type of thing. -- Scorpio

Scorpio -- *gulp* W-w-where to Lord S-s-scorpio? -- Bevo

Bevo -- Where else?  The Dark Arena. -- Scorpio *clicking his pen and writing
something on a small notepad*

Scorpio -- I want to continue fighting even after Sir Finbar leaves!! -- Lady Aksana
*clearly emotional*

Aksana -- It all depends on how well you continue to perform until that time, then.
-- Scorpio

Scorpio -- Just watch me then. -- Lady Aksana

Sir Yvain -- Good sir, I don't know if there's enough room in this good arena for two
Knights of the Order.  When you get strong enough pup, I dare say we fight! -- Sir
Finbar Galedeep

One-four, with the Blunderdog getting "head of the pack."  We won't let him bark for
you, though, because he's the only Dog I know who can open his mouth and trip over
his own tongue. -- Spot
