                             Notes from the arena champ.

The hustle and bustle of the Mordant Gladiatorial Commission is not for the faint of 
heart.  Warriors (and managers) have been known to disappear -- never to be seen again 
-- when they've attempted even relatively mundane administrative tasks.  Today, the 
office was packed beyond what it was ever intended to hold.

Living Colour approached the desk, and eyed the clerk levelly.  "We've come for Name 
Change-O-Rama."

Algernon smiled that bureaucratic smile, the one they teach you in government 
orientation your first day of work.  The one that doesn't reach your eyes.  "Of 
course, sir.  Did you bring the forms?"

The clerk ruffled through the papers, nodding knowingly and hmm'ing and haw'ing at the 
appropriate times.  He handed the papers back.

"You don't have the correct cover page.  You will need to fix that before I can 
process your request."

Living Colour's brow furrowed.  He had trudged to the office, and waited in line for 
three consecutive days.  Each time he'd been turned away due to a paperwork 
malfunction.  He would not be turned away again.

"Perhaps you can provide me..."

"I'm sorry, sir.  We do NOT provide legal advice."  Algernon smiled again, a little 
more genuinely this time.  Looking past Living Colour, he nodded towards the next 
person in the long, long line and motioned for him to come forward.

A pinpoint elbow to the forehead knocked the smallish Shewish Giant back into the 
crowd, where he disappeared in the mass of humanity and, well, not humanity.

Living Colour pulled a dagger from his waistband and advanced toward the counter 
again.  Noticing that his actions had gotten the clerk's attention, he slid the blade 
silently back into its scabbard.  He reached into his back pocket and pulled out his 
wallet.  Pulling out a few large bills, Living Colour placed them on the counter, 
where they disappeared quickly into Algernon's tip jar under the counter.

Pen at ready, Algernon nodded.  "Shall we begin?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of MORDANT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at RUN 
DMC left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by PITCH PERFECT. 
Good show!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe RUN DMC.  Last week they got 0-3-0 to drop by 4!  Nothing works for a team 
like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as COLORFUL can attest...  
Good things come to those who fight well, as PITCH PERFECT can attest, moving up by 
4.  Practice pays for BILLY BLANKS, who pummelled GRUNESH THE ORC, to pocket 15 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 7 points to BILLY MAYS.  (Discrete enough, DEVASTATING RAP?) Like a 
flirtacious debutante, MORDANT's Duelmaster AFFLUENZA found herself the woman of the 
hour, being "invited to dance" 4 times!  PIMPLED FARTHING found out that MORDANT 
isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one 
team in MORDANT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in MORDANT avoid SUPER STARS R US.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of COLORFUL, so did that sorry team shy from SUPER 
STARS R US LOVE PINK challenged DR. ROCKET!  Who says COLORFUL are just a bunch of 
wimps!  LOVE PINK of COLORFUL kept hers wits as she won victory over DR. ROCKET.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in MORDANT would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
MORDANT, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Conan's 
Place.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
