                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I took the title on a win from a standby?  How unimpressive.  At least I didn't
take it on a LOSS.

                                      Luisenya

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAL SHANG a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by TIL DEATH DO US PART, who 
came from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, ICECLAW fought BOBIKA VHETT and 
gained 18 points and contributed to CASTAWAYS' 1-4-0.  BOBIKA VHETT has lost to 
ICECLAW, falling 18 points, while helping make TIL DEATH DO US PART a 3-1-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, LUISENYA kept CASTAWAYS' warrior, FSSTIS 
KACHIEU, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Blazing Unicorn 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that DAL SHANG has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 DAL SHANG and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in DAL SHANG again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
