                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Gimlet, my thanks!  Better and better, and aren't my teammates green with envy!
Let Hannibal put this in his pipe and smoke it.  If I've told him once, I've told him
a dozen times that smoking is bad for the wind, but does he listen?  No!  He says I'm
"just a kid" and don't understand these things.  Well, I cock a snook at him.

                                     Jimmy Custer

P.S.  And I really wasn't laughing at you.  I was laughing at the look on Hannibal's
face.

P.P.S.  Gimlet, re my two broadswords?  Darned if I know where they came from.  I
should've had scimitars.  No, wait, I don't have the deftness for scimitars.  Hmm.
Maybe it isn't an input error after all.  Well, whatever, it doesn't matter any more,
because I am OUT of here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JHELUM once again!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for TANKS 
FOR NOTHIN''s outstanding member, Duelmaster LEOPARD.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was TANKS FOR NOTHIN'.  The bums at BABY BROTHERS couldn't face the challenges from 
TANKS FOR NOTHIN'!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in PANTHER?  Hers 13-1-0? 
TANKS FOR NOTHIN' ain't talkin', but she's got 71 points.  DIAPERED ZALGOR of BABY 
BROTHERS knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged PANTHER of TANKS FOR NOTHIN' who is up 
by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  DIAPERED ZALGOR perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he bested PANTHER and ended up with 90 recognition points.  I hate going to 
the effort of writing about the kind of fights that FLOYD PINK gets in.  He fights 
people like RIPPIN, 11 points below.  I thought FLOYD PINK showed great skill and 
promise when he was dealt death by RIPPIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  RIPPIN of THE 
SHALLOWSHIP got 14 points for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, THE WALL!  
Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take 
note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
JHELUM is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

The Prostitute -- Now don't be hasty, or tricksy either.  But then, that is your
business.  Seems like you always end up on the wrong side of the stick, so to speak.
Are we reaching..(click)..? -- Freebeard.

MIA2 -- You again?  Nothing like a she-Orc for formidable bathtub foes.  Where I come
from we call them Cling-ons.  PS Who's the hatchet for, Gorbag? -- Fear-O-Me-Not.

Teacher -- It figures.  Nothin' like a teacher for learnin' nothin'.  Hey, leave this
kid alone! -- Somewiseguy.

Jimmy Custer -- Congratulations!  See you in Chrysalis with the rest of the crew. --
Gimlet

Floyd Pink -- Wall I never!  Next time be a gentleman and lend a poor lass your spare
weapon! -- Rippin

Diapered Zalgor -- No, really, I just can't face you. -- Challon
P.S.  At least wear a long-tailed shirt or something.  And rubber pants.

Panther -- Ah, a beautiful woman.  I knew there would be beautiful, passionate women
if I could get the darned elephants over the Alps.  Not that the elephants had
anything directly to do with it, although they ARE impressive.  Perhaps dinner? --
Hannibal

Merkava -- (bouncing a little on his toes)  So, you see?  I saw you down by the
bandstand hanging out in bad company, and *I* can guess what you were getting.  Bad
plan, bub.  You think you're the hottest thing going while the buzz is on, and who
knows, maybe you are.  But it doesn't last. -- Howard, feeling inexplicably avuncular

The Judge -- Yes?  Well, our records remain mirror images.  I suppose this is
something, but I'm not sure what. -- Leonidas

Doldo d'Ariske, Veteran Mercenary -- Sure, I can always use a good man.  And you have
amply demonstrated your loyalty and determination.  But probably a non-combat
position.  Ah...do you cook? -- Hannibal

Trilibo of Sibikhas -- Insufferable popinjay! -- Howard

Fear-O-Me -- It was a kind thought, but unfortunately, my husband was resurrected by
the arena.  I believe there is some problem with the arenamaster's heirloom dagger,
so he doesn't get "time off." -- Aellia, widow of Zock, Convicted Thief

Rippin -- The pitiful little "empire" of Osksi is not noble.  *I* am noble. -- Ladro
van Koren Sistrum the Fifth of Osksi

Howard -- Coward. -- Trilibo of Sibikhas, Professional Assassin

Hannibal -- Darn straight. -- Doldo d'Ariske, Veteran Mercenary

J.A. Pinkerton -- Curses. -- Dirty Joe, Beggar in Standing

M1a1 -- Heck. -- anonymous Fratsfa Slave

Leopard -- Ah... I couldn't hit a woman? -- Doldo d'Ariske, Veteran Mercenary
