                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Veteran Mercenary isn't much of an opponent, but I suppose the stewards
didn't like to just hand me a win and the title again without some pretense that I
fought for it.  Weird, when you consider how grossly unfair they are to have let so
many of teammates graduate over my head.  I'm not flashy enough for 'em, that's the
truth.  Just a steady workhorse of a gladiator, boring style, all that.  Prejudice in
high places.

                                    Pete Mastiff

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHELUM?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, DOGS OF WAR, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see BRAVE 1 win a fight and gain 24 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JACK RUSTLE beat DA6 and DA6 lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may be getting bland, as PETE 
MASTIFF 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, JHELUM?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the JHELUM 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 JHELUM.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Running Dear -- And darned fast, too.  *I* sure couldn't catch you.  Not that I'd
want to, what use would I have for a deer?  I'm told they'd eat my rose garden. --
Mat'ari
P.S.  Is this tourney prep?  Not that we mind, we're glad to have you here even for a
turn or two, only... longer would be better.  It gets lonely.

The Venomous Vixin bit me!  Will I get sick?  Will I turn into a were-fox?  Where's
the antidote? -- Red Hammer

Snapping Turtle -- You've got to be the biggest, meanest turtle I ever me! -- Jack
Rustle

Brave 1 -- I admit I have very good legs, but you didn't have to try to cut them off
and walk away with them!  I would much rather walk away with them myself. -- Germaine
Sheppard
P.S.  Ah, the Commission notes that I am intensely charismatic.  Actually, I could
have told them that.  It can be a real problem.  Men follow me everywhere.
