                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I saw my opponent "through a shield darquely" and knew I'd have to get right in
there and take him down if I didn't want him to break my knees.  So I did.

                                     Ulra T'ssar

P.S.  I note that for every one of our fights, including THIS, the title match, "The
audience fell silent as the dueling began."  What did those fools think they were
DOING, chattering like that all the time?  People--gladiators--needed peace and quiet
to prepare themselves mentally for their matches!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JADE MOUNTAIN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, WRATH fought 
JADE BELLE and gained 15 points and contributed to MASTERS OF SIN's 1-0-0.  JADE 
BELLE has lost to WRATH, falling 9 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-3-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, SOULTAKER now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Green Axe until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  SAND DANCERS has cause to stand tall, as they were JADE 
MOUNTAIN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding SAND DANCERS more than any other team we find MANAGER MUSINGS.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that SERNILLAN from SAND DANCERS was JADE MOUNTAIN's most challenged 
warrior this turn.   
     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.  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.  Always good to rest in JADE MOUNTAIN, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

     These ads were misfiled in Kolact but I think they're still current. -- Ed.

Jade Belle -- What I really want to know, then, is if Lightfinger Lu died with a
smile on his face? -- FTF Manager

Holly Hepatitis and Candy Clap dead?  DA'd?  I thought they were supposed to be
GOOD?!  Perhaps the Commission took one look at the names and "edited" them? -- FTF
Manager

Ulra -- Don't worry.  I will not allow your hatred of me to get in the way of my
continually dissing and defeating you.  (smirk) -- Slugbait

Lady Scorn -- Thank you for the last dance.  I like going out on top. -- Vern
P.S.  And, thanks, Sandancers, for the compliment.

Sernillian -- So, what's new? -- Garth

Ulra -- How completely and udderly unfair! -- Darque

Ulra T'Ssar -- Congratulations on your Title.  Salute. -- FTF Manager and The Manager
Musings Clan

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Sand Dancers

Garth?  (peering closely)  Is that you?  There are some kind of tracks, wheel tracks
and footprints both, on this report...but I think it's you.  The last page is
missing, too, but I seem to have survived but lost.  I can live with that.  What ho.
-- Sernillan

Wrath -- Wow, if that's what sin is, it certainly paid us both well in the way of
skills!  Gotta love it, boy, gotta love it. -- Jade Belle, thrilled

A standby.  Okay, I can do standbys.  This works. -- Zelorand
