                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings everyone.  Looks like Kharas decided to take his "vacation" a little
early.  I find my ascending the throne bittersweet.  Condolences to The Zoo for
losing a veteran.  Forty-four fights in a slow arena... that's what?  Three and a
half years?  Sorry.
     Looks like I'll either be facing another Zoo member or a standby.  After my last
train, I wouldn't mind another shot at Khalhums Dwarf.
     Mushroom, you better gather up as many skills as you can on your way up the
ranks.  You'll need 'em.
     Life and luck to you all!

                                          -- Seam

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KYR'TERR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as WRATHMEN XIV is pushed out of top team by THE ZOO, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, JOE CORVO fought HAUGHA RYDE and gained 23 
points and contributed to OTTAWA SENATORS' 1-0-0.  HAUGHA RYDE has lost to JOE CORVO, 
falling 7 points, while helping make THE ZOO a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and SEAM remains KYR'TERR's top warrior for another turn. 
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Dripping Blade?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the OFM stable was the 
most avoided team this turn.  Come on KYR'TERR, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided OFM stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was ARENAS II.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KALI FLOWER from THE ZOO was 
KYR'TERR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.   
     I like this place, KYR'TERR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  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

Pineapple -- Thanks, sweetheart.  You made me look good. -- Miroi Chang

Miroi Chang -- I thought you quit.  That is a kick in the pineapples. -- Pineapple

Ernie Guul -- Best 2 out of 3, my friend. -- Mushroom

Multiplications -- I know people don't like anchovies, but you don't have to kill me.
-- Anchovy

Zoo -- My friend, you got lucky to be the top team.  I want a recount.  Lol -- Pizza
Toppings

Kharas -- Not having anything to say seems endemic with duelmasters lately.  You did
fine. -- Jorja

Mushroom -- Oh, I dunno.  Cauliflower and mushroom pizza... not all that bad, I bet.
-- Kali Flower

Pizza Toppings -- We're partial to "open-face pizza burgers" lately.  Really FLAT,
thin buns, not at all like those puffy white pillows, and then beef and sausage,
salsa, FRESH tomatoes chopped fairly small, cheese... excellent!  Don't need to heat
up the kitchen with an oven, either. -- the Zoo

Seam -- That was a case of "unnecessary roughness," if you ask me! -- Ghost of Geroge
Igono

I *lost* to the Kung-Fu Master?  How embarrassing. -- Roger Seyal
P.S.  He threw a rock-fisted punch of incredible felling power and hit me on the
butt.  I hate it when that happens.

Mushroom -- Oh, cheese louise, sorry, I thought you were... um.  We've been having a
lot of mold here, what with the rain and the heat and all. -- Ernie Guul

And two wins over standbys.  They'll do. -- Kali Flower and Haugha Ryde
