                             Notes from the arena champ.

     True, Naked Lunch.  "Furry Lunch" doesn't sound as... tasty.  And I'd get fur
between my teeth, too.  That isn't the same as flossing, it feels... weird.
Intrussive.  I wouldn't want your fur intruding between my teeth.  I wish you weren't
a guy.  We could get naked together for lunch.  Might be fun.  Hmm.  Might be fun
anyway.  Since you're a cat and I'm not, it wouldn't be quite the same as if we were
both, ah, you know, doing some of THAT stuff.

                                  Tiger Jonsalmin

                                      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.  The SAND DANCERS guild has 
had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, URIK DARKHEART fought GREEN GIANT and gained 
6 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 4-1-0.  GREEN GIANT has lost to URIK 
DARKHEART, falling 3 points, while helping make SHEWISH BUFFET a 2-3-0 turn.  And all 
eyes were on NAKED LUNCH this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  LIN 
TIRIAN has a new victor!  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.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has LIME JHELUM been sent to the 
Dark Arena by SHEWISH BUFFET?  And why with a 3-1-0 record??  Is it really true that 
LIN TIRIAN has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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

Tiger Jonsalmin -- I like this give and take we have.  It's nice to have such close
competition at the top of the arena. -- Naked Lunch

Leave it to the Ambitious Guard to ruin my unblemished record. -- Green Giant

One Armed Bandit -- Ah, yes, delayed mail delivery can be a MAJOR pain.  Good luck
with it. -- Jorja

Steamed Muscles -- Didn't we just DO this?  And I personally TOLD the guys in the
boiler room to make sure their steam didn't get where it wasn't supposed to be.  Of
course, they're orcs, they might not be able to grasp something that complicated. --
Urik Darkheart

Monster Mash -- Well, heck.  I went and invested in aphids, and then I don't get the
green guy this time.  Made you twitchy, though, didn't they? -- Korylus Vrae

And two standbys eat cold steel. -- Silver Slim and Rock Hardman

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
