                             Notes from the arena champ.

Tyler Durden gave me a thrill but, I'm still here.  I can't imagine why Houdini is
in such a hurry to see me leave.

                               Quicklime

                                      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.  The SAND DANCERS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, DEELAR MARION fought DISHONEST JUSTICE and gained 9 points 
and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-1-0.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
QUICKLIME kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, SHANA THE KNIFE, 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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  SAND DANCERS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were LIN TIRIAN'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 WILD OATS.  LIN 
TIRIAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, LIN TIRIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  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

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Back after the Face.  (If there is one.) -- Houdini and The Magic Artists 

Shana the Knife -- Apparently, I got carried away.  You're so...inspirational. --
Meat Hook

Meat Hook -- Well, HA on you, I won't GO to Ahringol.  Darned foreign god, like I'd

give HIM the time of day.  Me for a She-God of death, and somebody from my home,
somebody I can TALK to and who'll understand me.  Ahringol, bah. -- Shana the Knife
P.S.  But YOU can go to him, if you want.  I'd be glad to help.

Well, at least the Captured Orc IS an orc now.  It was confusing when he was a dwarf.
I guess somebody must've let him shave.  Risky, giving a captive a blade, but
probably worth it. -- Mirial Adamant

The Dishonest Justice made a career error?  I should say SO.  When he chose to be a
dishonest justice in the first place, if you ask me.  Gladiating is NOTHING like as
bad as perverting Mantor's justice in public. -- Deelar Marion, feeling virtuous and
superior (a novel experience)

But...the Cult Member opened up such INTRIGUING possibilities!  I HAD to listen. --
Chelbagheera

Meat Hook -- Special skill-pills. -- Deelar Marion

Meat Hook -- Or three steps ahead of the crowd moving into new territory! -- Mirial
Adamant, prophetess
P.S.  Is this about "petrophagic"?  I don't know if it's in the dictionary, but it's
formed in an acceptable fashion out of known roots.

Quicklime -- Gotta get it where I can. -- Shana the Knife

Mr. Clean -- But they have impressive tusks, does that help? -- Deelar Marion

Only six fights?  That's pathetic!  There are arenas with only a third our personals
who have a DOZEN fights! -- Jorja
P.S.  Don't stop talking, just fight more.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
