                             Notes from the arena champ.

     FTF Manager says I have to write one of these things--no matter that others 
seldom do in this arena.  I would have thought that Sam The Man would have done so; 
after all, he wrote some good stuff for TOGS, didn't he?  (Well, OK, "good" may be 
pushing it.) 
     One thing I can say, is that NEVER did I think I would reach this point and this 
throne.  After all, my name IS Vern.  Duelmaster?  Hardly.  But here I am, perhaps the 
resultant of some superior Manager management, but here nevertheless.  I will now have 
to shift my thinking to "I AM GOOD!"  Hmmmmm.
     We need some action in this arena.  We need everyone to fight.  We need some 
recruitment.  So we will!
     What the heck, if I can be DM, we can get some more competition in here.  It IS 
possible.

                                          Vern, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DOMINATION is pushed out of top team by MAGIC ARTISTS, who came from 
2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, SOLDIER 1 fought DEELAR MARION and gained 
10 points and contributed to DOMINATION's 2-0-0.  DEELAR MARION has lost to SOLDIER 
1, falling 6 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 0-4-0 turn.  We should ask 
NECROMANCER about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, she's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Lost Hope Inn?   
     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 SAND DANCERS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on LIN TIRIAN, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding SAND DANCERS more than any other team we find MAGIC ARTISTS.  LIN 
TIRIAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  Now it looks like DA CHAMPEEN is 
gone, and forgotten too, now that EARL'S TAVERN did not revenge MAGIC ARTISTS' 
NECROMANCER for killing DA CHAMPEEN.  Is it really true that LIN TIRIAN has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, LIN TIRIAN, 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

Shana, that was no trick!  I just wasn't where you aimed when you swung. Your knife 
looked too ominous to me to remain in the same place for a very longtime.  The 
illusion was that you thought you could hit me. -- Illusionist

Well, she sure hit me!  Well fought, Ms. Knife. -- Conjurer

Mirial, it was my pleasure to meet you on the sands.  I trust you recovered from those 
nasty wounds? -- Necromancer

No more embezzling, you hear, Scribe?! -- Medicine Man

Conjurer -- Ha!  Thought you could pull that one out of your hat, did you?  Take that, 
you faker! -- Shana the Knife

Necromancer -- Messing around with dead bodies is kind of creepy.  Why do you do it? 
-- Mirial Adamant
P.S.  That, or something, has done horrible things to your complexion.

The Captured Orc.  Huh.  I had no mercy on him. -- Deelar Marion
P.S.  Or should an orc be an "it"?

Rollo -- It happens. -- Jorja, Sand Dancers
