                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It seems a little unfair that Katriona should graduate, when *I* am the one
who's held the title.  Oh, well, no doubt I'll graduate any minute now.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see IRVINA KORL win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, KALTOS may be getting bland, as FELISSA HURM 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  I guess I can give a little credit to MOTHER-IN-LAW of 
BLOOD SUCKERS for challenging up by 18 to KOLVER MOON.  MOTHER-IN-LAW won to get 24 
points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KALTOS' 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

How kind of dear Venzo da'Kraliano, the Veteran Mercenary, to see me off.  Perhaps I
won't be in such a hurry to leave.  After all, good friends are important. --
Katirona Murh

Why this Guardsman, Kish, has ambitions that lead him into the arena is beyond me.
It was not ambitions that led ME into the arena but rather the reflection that risky
as a gladiatorial career might be, there are worse ones, and I was headed for one
that was much worse. -- Pendru Rost

Credit Card -- Indeed, but one must always remember the key factor:  consent of the
victim. -- Irvina Korl

This Embezzling Scribe isn't up for much, is he? -- Kolver Moon

Arenamaster Troktai -- I would be delighted to join you for dinner at your
convenience.  I believe I will be around for a while, so any evening will probably
do. -- Katirona Murh

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
