                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, cheese, just a Convicted Assassin.  Those guys are all over the place, we've
even got some on our team.

                                  Halgar Snagtooth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  VICTORIOUS III stable has parlayed this turn's 1-4-0 into a 3 space move 
up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
GABRIELLE REECE fought RED COULTER and gained 19 points and contributed to GIRLS X3's 
4-1-0.  MEDUSA has lost to DIXIE BUBBLES, falling 8 points, while helping make 
VICTORIOUS III a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and HALGAR SNAGTOOTH remains LIN TIRIAN's top warrior for another turn.  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.   
     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?  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

Jorja (or whomever is in charge of the Sand Dancers here) -- I'm putting you on
notice.  My team is here to be the worst, which means you will no longer be the
loveable losers and underdogs you once were here.  The gauntlet is down, my team will
under-perform yours and since neither of us will challenge or change strats/trains
without extreme diligence; there's nothing you can do about it.  I look forward to
seeing your new recruits, good luck losing on the sands to mine even with the 1 FE
head start. -- Zalgor Prigg, Victorious III

Danni Rogers -- Ha!  Take that, you pointy-eared ELF! -- Shana Two-Knives

I'll make that Kung-Fu Master regret his pushiness. -- Red Coulter

At least M. Chardinee had the decency to lose. -- Chelbagheera
