                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  The Count is down for it.  Not permanently, which is okay as long as I can
beat up on him now and then.  But he isn't going to take the title and sit up here
looking like a dummy with no ventriloquist.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LIN TIRIAN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, CALEAM 
CHOWDER fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 16 points and contributed to SHEWISH 
BUFFET's 3-2-0.  MIKE has lost to ARADI BOLOGNESE, falling 12 points, while helping 
make J a 1-1-0 turn.  And not without some honor, THE COUNT now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of LIN TIRIAN.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Lost Hope Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the J stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on LIN TIRIAN, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided J 
stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SHEWISH BUFFET.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Wow, Cj ate a bad egg and died of it, and the fans booed and hissed HER?  This is a
tough crowd. -- the Sand Dancers

Sjs -- It's worth it to see you gone.  Not that I wouldn't MIND having an opponent
who would TALK sometimes.  I mean, it's true, I cut the tongue out of a guy who was
making totally unfair comments about my hair, but there's plenty of GOOD stuff you
could say. -- Tesla Sharpe

Kung Fu Masters have an advantage, hands.  And feet, for that matter.  You ever tried
doing one of those kung-fu kicks with a Duck's foot?  Fat chance. -- Kurtal Duck

The Veteran Mercenary's a nice enough guy, as guys go.  He knows when to surrender.
-- Harnie Black

Maybe the Mercenary's okay, but the Ambitious Guard is just plain nasty.  Too many
hands and not enough scruples. -- Delna Berin
