                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Thanks, Winter Rose, for letting me keep the top spot for another turn.  I keep
thinking that I will lose, but still win!  Tres?  Are you next?  I am not sure, but
looks like this place is full of sandbaggers!  Until next turn...

                                          Xavier

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JADE MOUNTAIN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as EL CAMINO:DOS is 
pushed out of top team by SAND DANCERS, who came from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  
And let's see, RAGE fought FEUNTE and gained 19 points and contributed to RUNEBLADES' 
3-2-0.  FEUNTE has lost to RAGE, falling 15 points, while helping make EL CAMINO:DOS 
a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, XAVIER kept EL CAMINO:DOS' 
warrior, TRES, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Green Axe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JADE MOUNTAIN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
