Still Searching

Hammer sorted through the files of deactivated stables that had been placed upon his 
desk.

The veteran manager was still not fully satisfied or settled upon which arena or 
arenas that he would reactivate and keep active, once he had the opportunity to see 
his rusty warriors in action.

He was still searching for a stable or stables worth his time and expense to 
reactivate, or create an entirely new stable in a new arena, that he deemed worth 
running, after so many long years of being absent from Alastari.

Yet another arena had piqued his interest: Telorinthe.  A no-tourney arena that had 
long ago been abandoned by the veteran manager, as had Shadowspire arena.

Hammer hastily scanned the information on the yellowed parchment, then took a closer 
look at the summary of each warrior of the deactivated stable.  A faint flicker of 
competitive life seemed to be awakened in a long forgotten memory, glinted in the 
recesses of his eyes, as the veteran manager signed a hastily scrawled message, then 
called for a rider to dispatch the message and a small bag of gold coins to the 
Gladiatorial Commission in Telorinthe arena.

Then the veteran manager noticed a small stack of prospective stables in a hidden 
corner of his desk, along with a yellowed notice of yet another no-tourney arena that 
had opened during his absence from the Alastari arena sands.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TELORINTHE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  BAD SIGNS?  Who?  
FIGHT SONG is the top team these days, buddies!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  
(alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FIGHT SONG.  
Practice pays for NIKE, who pummelled THRILLER, to pocket 19 points.  CUTTER 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to MOTHER-IN-LAW and 
losing 9 points in the process!  Now I can't insult NOCTURNAL RITES, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in TELORINTHE is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
CHAIN GANG are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, FIGHT SONG scurried away from CHAIN GANG.  Oh, 
the shame!  If challenges were horses, THE GLUTTON could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Justice was served as MOTHER-IN-LAW fought CUTTER in bloodfeud.  Well done, 
BAD SIGNS!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in 
the arena.  A certain tavern in TELORINTHE would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  TELORINTHE, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

diet! -- the Gael, Fight Song

a slow no-tourney arena here in Telorinthe.  No promises as to how long my original 
stable will remain active here! -- Hammer, mgr Aaaarrgh Hammerz
