                             Notes from the arena champ.

Don't pay any attention to those fans, Gudja, they don't know anything about being a 
gladiator and getting chopped up every two weeks.

                                          -- Pete Moss

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SHADECREAK fought EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and gained 14 points and contributed to STEELE RISING's 3-2-0.  MARINA QUINN 
has lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 9 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 10 a 
2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, PETE MOSS kept SERPENS' warrior, 
GUDJA, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Aradi Alyia until they win.  Maybe? 
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  The grave that DIAMONDS IN THE RUFF 
had dug for THE BIG 'OH' may yet be filled with the body of BLACK ORC.  Seldom are 
the likes of this to be seen.  THE BIG 'OH' lives still!  Anyone care to tell me why 
the warriors of SAVAGE haven't revenged the death of SILENT MELODY against PUNCH 
DRUNK of ALTERED STATES II yet?  Hmmm?  I wish to point out for STEELE RISING that 
there is but a single turn before MIDDLE WAY 10 and their warrior, MELANIE PIERCE, 
will get away with killing CREAK.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
