                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It always works so nicely when people work together.  Jack of Hearts agreed to
fight me on the sands and I agreed to look into his asthma problem.  I got the throne
out of the deal and will move closer to immortality.  He gets a fresh prescription to
a mild steroid to help with asthma.  Isn't that a great deal?
     Unfortunately, I see almost nothing but TPs below me and I've always had trouble
when I have to be patient.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see GOLDEN TONGUE win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, QUEEN OF 
PENTACLES beat AU and AU lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke 
or broken, our Duelmaster BLACK INDEKKER challenged this turn.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as MISDIAGNOSIS stays top dog in the 
city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
WILLAF, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you 
ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, HANNAH BALL was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  HANNAH BALL, a glorious 3-5-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad PUNNY AMINALS.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of WILLAF.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Misdiagnosis?  Duelmaster?  Apparently the manager made a strategy misdiagnosis? --
Midas

Queen Of Pentacles -- You got me with a pentacle, you sexy woman! -- Golden Tongue

Papa's Bankbook is now a little lower.  Perhaps he will find a way to replenish it?

Froggy, froggy, froggy -- Gotcha! -- AU

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold. -- Midas

Jack of Hearts -- Your manager should be GLAD you don't go out and get into fist-
fights.  But managers... eh. -- Black Indekker

Early One Morning -- It's probably the magnetic ore used to produce your shield. --
Whip Sawyer

Three-two!  I didn't think we had it in us. -- Black Indekker

Righteous -- Oh, you are NOT.  My Auntie Macassar says you're greasy. -- Sofa'Yam

I don't put up with those Kung-Fu people. -- Black Indekker
P.S.  No, seriously, anyone who would walk out onto the sands in daylight without
weapons has GOT to be up to something.  There's a deep plot here.

Early One Morning -- Wha?  (mutter stumble)  WHA?  G'way! -- Whip Sawyer

Homemade Dress -- I will NOT be outdone by a mere SEWING MACHINE. -- Hannah Ball

I nailed that Insurgent to the barn door! -- Rusty Neales

     And very hard on the door it was, too.  You're supposed to skin him and
     just nail up his hide.  That's easier on the hinges.
