                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hoffa (4346, not the other one), I return to you, with interest, your horse-
laugh.  Haw haw haw HAW!
     It was a true pleasure to defeat you.

                                     Ingold Kerr

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, I HEART BALLS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  
Middle of the road, SPORTS GREATS, middle of the road; you'll get no good words from 
me, until you get better, or worse.  Break a leg.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see GLORIA IMBRO win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
GLORIA IMBRO beat SAMANTHA FOX and SAMANTHA FOX lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KALTOS may be getting bland, as INGOLD 
KERR stays top dog in the city.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From KALTOS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
EVEREST LLP, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was PARTY ANIMALS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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 KALTOS 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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Hoffa 4622 -- I see in you the chance that you might become as obnoxious as your
teammate and namesake, and I conceive it as my duty to keep you humble.  Well, as
humble as possible. -- Norle Parth

I really hate it when the Khalhums Dwarf does that.  Bad enough to lose, and to lose
to a standby, but to lose to a runty little hairball!  I hate that. -- Chester Egg
P.S.  He could have taught me more than one skill, if he's such a hotshot gladiator.
But nooo, dwarves were always stingy.

M. Chardinee -- You, sir, are definitely not stingy, and I thank you for your
consideration and generosity.  I am sure that those are JUST the skills I've been
needing.  Thank you! -- Gloria Imbro

Mordant Deserter -- You should be ashamed of yourself!  Sure, Mordant's an armpit,
but that isn't a reason to run out on them.  You should STAY and try to make things
better! -- Fergus Hill, having a brief moment of inspirational fervor (it won't last,
will it?)

Shanno -- I see now, having finally received the fight reports, that you are female,
tall, dark, and lovely.  Well, impressive, anyway.  Come join me for liver and
onions, with garlic toast?  Or how about a good, crisp pork steak, with applesauce
and sweet potatoes?
