                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Convicted Assassin is not that tough, though.  Probably why he ended up in jail
in the first place.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, SILVER SLIM fought SERGEANT 
4 and gained 14 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  SERGEANT 4 has lost 
to SILVER SLIM, falling 14 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 a 1-2-0 turn. 
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RIB IAYE remains LIN 
TIRIAN's top warrior for another turn.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Two-three, but no standbys for us.  Hmm.  As you may see--if you look--I found
something tasty to bite today.  Ann... she's nasty enough, but she doesn't know what
to do with a crisp Rind.  Bah. -- Mandi Cobra
