                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now that I'm faced with it, I find that the time of the Fools Tourney is a poor
one to graduate.  True, they SAY that favorites are set when a gladiator first enters
the system, but... what besides the influence of the Fools Tourney could have
resulted in me having the war flail as a favorite?  Moderate/ moderate, bash tactic.
It's ridiculous.
     And, as you can see, it didn't suffice to stop the Virginal Concubine.  Darned
she-cat.

                                    Norm Quesha

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARKERS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FIELDER win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AKANAH 
beat PENNY and PENNY lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, ARKERS may be getting bland, as NORM QUESHA stays top dog in the city. 
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  KEE, a 
glorious 7-8-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad STRANGE UNIVERSE.  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ARKERS 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 ARKERS.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Akanah -- Strange indeed!  We certainly made a pair out there.  Don't ask me "a pair
of what?" because I haven't a clue. -- Kotter Nahl

Kee -- Another strange one.  Mildly annoying.  How do you feel about sushi-grade
tuna?  I've got a couple of steaks.... -- Imerta Loel

Fielder -- And that wraps up an oh-fer turn for us.  What a thrill. -- Leland Olven

I have no idea where--or when--our fifth gladiator went astray.  I may have to
actually (gasp) ask for a replacement! -- Jorja, pondering the unsatisfying Middle
Way

Jorja -- Strategy changes might help. -- the unsatisfied Middle Way
