                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I certainly couldn't let B.F. Skinner take the title.  Imagine what he would
have done with it!  Experiments in behavior modification.  Appalling.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in VALAMANTIS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  COVER-UP stable has 
parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, NEEVAN POVAR fought TREMOR and gained 
17 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 10's 2-2-0.  TREMOR has lost to NEEVAN POVAR, 
falling 15 points, while helping make DISASTERS a 1-2-0 turn.  And all eyes were on 
INFERNO this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  VALAMANTIS has a new 
victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at Drunkard's Guild?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

One could wonder why zombies need to go to the Dark Arena.  Aren't they dead already?

The Convicted Assassin and the Khalhums Dwarf eat sand! -- Gilbern Juss and Imrom
Llews

If there were fewer Dangerous Criminals fighting as standbys, we'd have... hmm.  We'd
probably have more dangerous criminals fighting for active managers.  Maybe that
wouldn't be a good idea.... -- Neevan Povar
