                             Notes from the arena champ.

    The Brick Wall had a long, involved column that it wanted me to transcribe, but
this weekend has been exhausting, and I'm just not up for it.  Sorry.  Maybe next
time.

Bottle of Beer, for Brick Wall

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORDANT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HAYDAN win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TIEN-SHU 
OF GENRAI beat BOTTLE OF BEER and BOTTLE OF BEER lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MORDANT may be getting bland, as BRICK 
WALL stays top dog in the city.  Conan's Place, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MORDANT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the MORDANT 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 MORDANT.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

                                     PERSONAL ADS

All -- I have decided to enter Mordant full time from here on out, barring unforeseen
circumstances.  For nearly 20 years I have been playing mostly in slow arenas and
have decided that I need a home arena in a faster environment.  This will be the
place!  Good luck to all on the sands. -- Tripwire, Iron Council

Brick Wall -- Well, we will probably once again meet.  I think its 2-2 now isn't it?
-- Snag

Honor -- You failed.  You did not kill the Deadly Bore.  We are very disappointed in
you. -- Hayden and other Homicidal Maniacs
P.S.  But really, there's nothing maniacal about wanting to see the Bore dead.  It's
just common sense and a feeling of social responsibility.
P.P.S.  Your style seems inappropriate for your concept.  Change something, as I
cannot stand inappropriateness.

Honesty -- How can you do that?  You're not SUPPOSED to defeat me, because I have
more experience than you do!  And besides, I have a better style.  You are so WRONG.
-- Rookie Manager
P.S.  Probably dishonest!

I wish to protest the actions of M. Chardinee.  His behavior was unacceptable.
First, he kept hitting different locations, so that I couldn't properly protect
myself.  Then, when I hit him back, he reeled in shock and RECOVERED, going on to
RETURN MY BLOWS!  And finally, after MOST unreasonably winning, he didn't teach me a
SINGLE SKILL!  I demand that M. Chardinee be impeached. -- Haydan
P.S.  And maybe drawn, quartered, and thrown out for the dogs.

Huh, I spend the whole weekend working, and the standby gets to have several days of
bedrest.  Life is so unfair! -- Bottle of Beer

All -- This may go out to an empty arena, but hopefully it will begin to fill up and
be deserving of the Delarquan #1 arena that it used to be. -- Tripwire, Iron Council

All -- I am officially declaring this to be my Home Arena..  I used to manage in
pretty much just slow arenas and have decided that I would prefer the faster.  I
needed a home Delarquan arena, so this is it. -- Tripwire, Iron Council
