                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I be Lord Scorpio's secon Duelmaster, but I be making Duelmaster in memory of me
dear friend & wing Dwarf--Nukkels.  The taverns ain't the same without yous.  I drink
extra tonight for you old friend!! *raises a flagon of Dwarven Stout high, then gulps
it down*

                              Zolo

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARADI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  UNNAMEABLES stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-0 
into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, JAWS fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 12 points and 
contributed to RED DOG GANG's 1-4-0.  THE 'STIFF has lost to KITANA SUKI, falling 4 
points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and ZOLO remains ARADI's 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 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.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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

     I'm not sure if the above was intentional, or someone had his fingers on the
     wrong keyes, but there it is.

Destitute Noble -- Very well then,  Well met indeed!  What made you decide to come
back to Aradi? -- Scorpio

Lord Scorpio -- It be mine and mine teammates to ask that you please spare the big
bulls life and give him a littel more time to "grow." -- Zolo

Very well, you all agree to give Bevo a little more time?  *heads nod*

Bevo -- Don't let your teammates down, they've just spared you the DA, for now. --

a Dog, I'd be depressed, but Dogs don't do "depressed."  It's just a good thing that
Zolo got Head of the Pack, now HE can write a column.  He's a human, okay, a short-
