                             Notes from the arena champ.

Strike a pose.

Ok... was anyone paying attention last round?  I hit hard.  What's with these naked 
dudes?  I see these fellas show up at the Brss Pole and then bring their freeballin' 
ways into the arena.  Look, you guys tip me well, so I'll give you one.

Cover up, lads.

You're welcome.

Busty Wet-T

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARUAK CITY?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, ANIMAL FARM, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see COLOSSAL BABE win a fight and gain 22 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE beat PUG and PUG lost 10 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like ARUAK CITY has some guts at least, BUSTY WET-T 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  COTTON CRAWDAD challenged 
ARUAK CITY's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as COTTON CRAWDAD takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  AARDVARK & CO. was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like COLORIFIC avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ARUAK CITY.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

I am here to report that Animal Farm, which captured a slick 4-0 this round, has two 
warriors traveling to the OctoMailer. Cotton Crawdad and Yellow Yak will gladly accept 
your well-wishes. -- Sissy, The Animal Farm Publicist (Who is really hot stuff!)

Aye! Luv me critters! -- Mino

Colossal Babe, whew! That was a close one! I like the win, but I feel like a tree fell 
on me. -- Sepia Squid

Eekz Half-Ear, you saw my last performance pre-mailer and I was at my very, very best. 
-- Cotton Crawdad

Red Sophia, weren't we a pair? You with that red haier and me with my lovely hazel 
eyes? -- Hazel Hippo (Who needs to go on a diet!)

The Perforator, that was a pretty good fight for a pair of old foggies. -- Brandywine 
Boar

All right. O.K. So I only had a 3-1 round. So? A little weak for the very, very best 
manager in the game, but  I will fix the failures. No doubt. -- Purple People Eater,

It was a Colorific day. Let me summarize for all you followers:
Blackheart engulfed Pina Collada.

Congratulations again to Busty Wet-T, Duelmaster of The Heart And Soul Of Andoria. 
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

eyes too often on the whopping headlights. -- Pug

Thanks for the warm-up, Convicted Assassin. -- Mad Cow Disease

What?! Oh, my! I lost to Dangerous Criminal?! Back to the drawing board. Gotta get the 
boat movin'. -- Greyhound Bus

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Kennelworth
