                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One more win and I get the prize!  Zilla?  Shall we?

-- Big Six

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ST. GEORGE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ST. GEORGE 
beat 21 GUNS and 21 GUNS lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as BIG SIX stays top dog in the 
city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to 
know what's new, don't you, VEASTIAN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZILLA KHIRNAJ was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy THE BIG UNIT a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     What does the VEASTIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

the tourney, but I had a blast. -- The Big Unit

Off to my retirement!  Hopefully without a trip to the Isle of the Eye for
resurrection. -- The Big Unit

Our congratulations to The Big Unit. -- Jorja and the Family

bad.  WE went four-one, with the only loss (mine, but it was a good fight, while it
lasted) being to The Big Unit.  An incipient Lord Protector, after all, what can you
expect? -- Zilla Khirnaj
