                             Notes from the arena champ.

I'm still Duelmaster.  Master says another four fights and I'm off to the Isle.  I
expect all four fights to be wins.  The only question is, will I leave with Darque's
head or will she hold on to it?

Well, I've beaten all the Manager Musings, except Mannequin.  Come on Mannequin, risk
that undefeated record and challenge me!  I dare you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see THIA ARIGO win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CANDY CLAP beat JADE BELLE and JADE BELLE lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as HOLLY HEPATITIS takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, JADE BELLE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
JADE MOUNTAIN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Oh me.  Oh my. -- FTF Manager, Manager Musings

Korto Lu -- Why do we keep running into you?  You must like pain. -- Jagielo Damask

Jaginru -- You fight like a standby. -- Hozha Odemis

Jade Belle -- Thanks, I'm the team loser now. -- Chamuscar

Chamuscar -- Not today, okay?  We're holding a wake. -- Jade Belle
P.S.  Not what I particularly wanted to do, but Jorja's moping around the guildhouse
muttering how this used to be such a great place, lots of action, active teams,
active managers, adventures everywhere you turned, all that sort of stuff.  I felt
like telling her, "Not in my lifetime, so forget it!" but I didn't feel like getting
smacked upside the head for saying it so...I'll just be bummed in my personal.

Darque -- I guest the season is in your favor.  Anyway, it's really darque out
already, and only just five.  Darque and COLD.  Ice everywhere.  NOT a fun situation,
because it isn't smooth enough for skating. -- Sernillan

Jagielio Damask -- Good gods, I must have forgotten to pay the handicapper!  [Note to
self, pay handciapper IMMEDIATELY.  That kind of mistake could get me KILLED.]  Okay,
sure, the style match was in your favor, but that doesn't mean I liked it.  You
ALREADY had experience in your favor. -- Korto Lu the devastated and bruised

Hozha Odemis -- Euwh.  Whatever kind of perfume you've got?  Change it.  It makes my
eyes burn, my sinuses (or should that be sinae or something weird?) close up, and my
head ache. -- Jaginru the allergic

Whoo, wow, my first match and they throw a twenty-point standby at me?  Somebody
must've figured out I've got the goods. -- Stone Bear

Darque -- So they say, but would you take one to bed with you? -- Jade Master

Soultaker -- No, they don't need the money. -- Captain Mondionr
