                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, that 0-3 performance in Champions was pretty humbling.  You wouldn't think
that a gladiator named after soup could have his pride wounded, but apparently he
can.
     Time to graduate and get ready for the Freshmen tourney.

Caleam Chowder

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed 
out of top team by SHEWISH BUFFET, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, RICE & BEANS fought CONVICTED THIEF and gained 19 points and contributed 
to EL CAMINO:HOT SAUCE's 3-2-0.  KORYLUS VRAE has lost to STEAMED MUSCLES, falling 14 
points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and CALEAM CHOWDER remains LIN TIRIAN's top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Lost Hope Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     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?  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.   
     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 the sun next rises and my 
pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
