                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I hope everyone has a blast at the Tempe Face and does Arkers proud.  Yes, that
includes both the dastardly Consag Conquistadors and the Khisanth Killers.  Go get
'em!
     I do not have much else to say.  I am feeling quite vulnerable up here with four
challenger champs, all of whom are probably way more skilled that me.
     All I want to do is graguate. Yikes!
          Zither, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARKERS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch Z GLADIATORZ's heads 
swell from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  
Looks like ARKERS has some guts at least, ZITHER the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  ZITHER challenged INDIOR LANDIS for ARKERS' Title this 
turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, ARKERS may be 
getting bland, as ZITHER 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, 
ARKERS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  YOU PAY 
I SLAY, 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 Z GLADIATORZ.  Ha ha ha ha!  I 
guess I can give a little credit to ALAMO of SMITHSONIAN for challenging up by 20 to 
NORM QUESHA.  ALAMO won to get 89 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARKERS to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  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 Clemens
