                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is Title number 23.  TWENTY THREE!!!!!  Who would have thought it way back
when this arena was started up.  I've heard a lot of confessions and some interesting
gossip, but, of course, I cannot repeat any of that.  So, I am relegated to giving
you an update on the current Oldies.  (Includes Pep Rally as we have no new recruit
yet.)

          Confession DMXXIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TELORINTHE this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, CONSTRUCTION ZONE fought SVEN 
and gained 12 points and contributed to BAD SIGNS' 3-2-0.  ERIC has lost to CONTRACT 
BRIDGE, falling 9 points, while helping make SUDDENLY, THE VAN a 1-4-0 turn.  Well 
done, TELORINTHE, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 
CONFESSION is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  This week's Duelmaster bout 
was between QUITA REMMING and our Duelmaster CONFESSION, making a challenge.  
Defending its title for another turn, CONFESSION kept MIDDLE WAY 21's warrior, QUITA 
REMMING, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the ZEITGEIST stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on TELORINTHE, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided 
ZEITGEIST stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BAD SIGNS.  Anyone surprised?  
LUMP from BAD SIGNS took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 34 points in a 
challenge against ORRIE POLLAS.  And crowds were on their feet when LUMP claimed a 
victory from ORRIE POLLAS, and now has 90 points for his efforts.  In a fit of 
brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), OUT FOR A DUCK challenged VODI 
today, facing a 28 difference in recognition.  Even though OUT FOR A DUCK lost the 
fight, it at least came away with a gain of 79 points for challenging on of OLLIS 
HEROES.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that TELORINTHE 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 TELORINTHE, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TELORINTHE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kellumbo's Inits and Bad Signs -- Perhaps that was a little cheap, but we really
needed a breather on our schedule, plus you have been so devastating to us Oldies of
late.  We are probably done with the BF, but I can assure you that if there are any
more of them, they will come from below. -- Pep Rally, retired Lord Protector (and
proud of it)

Indiana Jones -- Thank you for the challenge.  I had fun, and a win always brightens
up what is in the box. -- Cracker Jacks

Sven -- I'll play for you any time.  (wink) -- Accordion

Fogslanger -- You just didn't get dealt the cards. -- Contract Bridge

Yoda -- Hopefully, third time remains a charm. -- Lump

Twitter -- Much too rapid communication for my liking. -- Construction Zone

Helga Hoarfrost -- I think I can only do that once more at most. -- Steal Home

Confession -- No, I will *not*.  I don't believe in it.  Some things are better left
unsaid. -- Orrie Pollas

Wasnis -- What the heck, off you go with a win. -- Karin Lo

Cyclidia -- Somehow, I see you as... a fern, I think.  Maybe that impossible paradox,
a flowering fern? -- Quita Remming

Melancholia -- That loss is almost enough to make me depressed.  Almost. -- Moris
Nahr

Berthold -- You're too dark to be a TRUE Van. -- Sam Tall

Steal Home -- What?  That's a confusing question. -- Quita Remming
