                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, we're up to SEVEN fights this week!  And one of them involves TWO managed
gladiators, it was an exciting event.  Unfortunately, it was not my fight.  I got to
beat up the Virginal Concubine, which I did with great pleasure because I don't like
to see men moving into what is traditionally a woman's line of work.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in AMEN-TEI this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, HYRAM CARTER fought DIMAGGIO 
and gained 15 points and contributed to WAYFARERS' 4-1-0.  DIMAGGIO has lost to HYRAM 
CARTER, falling 13 points, while helping make 1949 YANKEES a 1-2-0 turn.  Defending 
hers title for another turn, LENNALGIRE kept AMEN-TEI's warrior, VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, 
from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was WAYFARERS' warrior VALNAKAUR.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, BERRA from 1949 YANKEES challenged up 18 points to 
fight VALNAKAUR from the WAYFARERS stable.  BERRA perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he was defeated by VALNAKAUR and ended up with 59 recognition points.   
     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.  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

Berra -- That is the FINEST kind of fight with another managed gladiator:  one that I
win.  I like it.  Stay a while. -- Valnakaur

So I lost to the Honest Merchant, sue me.  I never did well at that haggling stuff.
-- M.T. Lane
P.S.  And if he's honest, I'm the Queen of the May.

I don't know whose idea it was to send the Friendly Constable out onto the sands
drunk--perhaps his own!--but I thank them. -- Hyram Carter

Well... that Beggar WAS polite, I must admit.  But that's about all I'm prepared to
say in his favor. -- Carron Rhodes
