                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha ha ha, man would you look what happened here.  Mister "Unbeatable" got beat.
By my count I'm 2-1 against Aiden.  Both his losses are to me.  The rest of you
better take notice.  I'm not James.  Deal with it.

                                                               Redd

P.S.  It's fun writing this column.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in LIN TIRIAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  LETHAL HERITAGE stable has parlayed this 
turn's 1-2-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  
Good work, guys!  And let's see, SAGANAMI fought FRANK and gained 18 points and 
contributed to LETHAL HERITAGE's 1-2-0.  FRANK has lost to SAGANAMI, falling 10 
points, while helping make THE LEGENDS a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, REDD kept LETHAL HERITAGE's warrior, AIDEN, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Lost Hope Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that DEAN from THE LEGENDS was 
LIN TIRIAN's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that LIN TIRIAN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in LIN TIRIAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LIN TIRIAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Redd -- Well, that will teach me to open my mouth prematurely.  Don't you think?
*chagrinned grin*  Congrats on the Throne! -- Aiden

Jessan -- What?  The hammer in your hand with the proximity to the nail's head
(smack dab ON it) isn't proof enough?  What about this piece of lumber that is
witness to this offensive carpentry? -- LP Natasha

Jigger Kree -- That wasn't very nice of you!  Here I am, trying to graduate so I
can retire, and you go and beat me up that way.  The youth today have no respect
for thier elders, I tell you!  You'd better behave, or I'll file a grievance
with Jorja (about your lack of respect, not your beating me...that would be
whining, and I don't whine...much).  You know how SHE gets when she gets riled
up! -- Vlad

All -- Hehe, Top Unchartered Team.  1-6-0 record.  Gotta love small arenas.  I
get to DA again for free!! *grin* -- Lord Xiang, mgr. Wind Storm

All -- I'm the most popular warrior in the arena, yet I have the worst record of
all my teammates on all three teams.  Go figure. -- Vlad

Aiden -- Check out the DM Column.  Ha ha ha. -- Redd

Shana -- Talk about a small world. -- Clint

Mirial Steel -- You know that word "devastated" is sometimes overused.  Well not
this time. -- Sammy

Osksi Noble -- Well ain't nothing like being in the unpopular fight.  Come on
down to the Lost Hope and pop a few cold ones. -- Frank

Chalbaeg -- With our Initiates status we will be spending a lot of time
together. -- Dean

Lord Xiang and Jorja -- Thanks for the info and I'm looking to get a new team or
two together so we might meet on the sands someplace else. -- Loch Ness

Vlad -- Ha!  That'll teach you to go around baring your fangs at me, you
wretched, bloodthirsty orc. -- Jigger Kree
P.S.  Or then again, it might not teach you, as I seem to recall that orcs don't
learn readily.

Clint -- Listen, you, I don't like the look in your eye when you come out like
that.  STOP it, or I'll slaughter you in an alley. -- Shana the Knife

Clint -- We never let her out alone after dark, and she seems nearly sane by
daylight, so you're PROBABLY okay. -- Jorja

Sammy -- You should have learned more. -- Mirial Steel

Dean -- Damned orc. -- Chalbaeg, master of snappy insults and a broad vocabulary

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
