                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, for the Hammer's sake!  Nobody here but us and the standbys?  Ah, no I see
Lizzie got a managed gladiator... and killed him.  That's Lizzie for you.  I do like
the way that woman relates to the world.

                                   Sweet Freddy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRANSEL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, ODD fought LIZZIE BROADAXE and gained 7 points and contributed 
to BALTO's 1-0-0.  Defending his title for another turn, SWEET FREDDY kept TRANSEL's 
warrior, WEGERIN GREATBLADE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Sultan's 
Tent until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Will PSYCHO SQUAD get away with DAZEY MAY having killed LINTASIA of SOUL 
STRIPPERS II?  One more turn, and the bloodfeud's over, at least officially.  We'd 
like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who 
you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, TRANSEL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRANSEL and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Oh... oh, dear.  Freddy must have... he made the Dangerous Criminal angry, didn't he?
And I was just... well... I guess I was in the wrong place at the right time.  I
don't like it when that happens.  But it happened.  Oh, well.... -- Dazey May

Buri -- I didn't have it in for Sluggo, you know.  But I was REALLY PISSED at someone
else, and Sluggo was THERE, and I needed to HIT SOMEONE.  Sorry about that.  I don't
mind killing, but I don't like killing by accident. -- Lizzie Broadaxe

Who does that Beggar think he IS, talking to ME like that?  I'll have his EARS for
that. -- Surly Shirley

This is incredibly embarrassing. -- Ghost of Le Bon Dao
