                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Nope, still not good enough, Decay.  But maybe you can take the title by default
next time, since it appears that I'm being forced out.  Not that you'll find me
complaining!

                                     Zoe Alden

P.S.  Long spear, moderate/very high?  I never would have guessed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JURINE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, DECAY fought KHALHUMS DWARF and 
gained 8 points and contributed to AUTUMN SAGA's 3-2-0.  XAVAN YOLE has lost to FALL 
PRINCESS, falling 5 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 16 a 2-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ZOE ALDEN remains JURINE's top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  MIDDLE WAY 16 has cause to stand 
tall, as they were JURINE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 16 more than any other team we find AUTUMN SAGA.  
JURINE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
