                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, the pleasures of being on top!  The Boo Boo Kitty was an easy win, you can
always give a cat pause with a glass of cold water to the face, and if that fails,
you hiss at 'em.
     And maybe now *I* will be able to graduate since I'm accumulating political
points up here.

                                     Ultorino

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE MONGOLOIDS, since ARENA 
FELINES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MADNESS win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, MADNESS beat MERE CAT and MERE CAT lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT ULTORINO is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  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, ZUKAL? 
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZUKAL 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 ZUKAL.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Wow -- Well, I see that I learned a skill in that fight, so I must have survived it.
We're all a little anxious today, except Ultorino, who's plastered across the front
page, because there are TWO new-warrior applications in with today's report.
Somebody has died, but at least it wasn't me! -- Blue Jon

Kihmbulee -- Well, heck.  Darn.  Drat. -- disgusted and embarrassed ghost of Tiko Ben

I did for the Veteran Mercenary, tra la.  Always glad to be alive! -- Blue Blotto
P.S.  Even though it's cloudy today.
P.P.S.  No, wait, I just graduated, didn't I?  So "alive" is no longer an issue.
Still, even a temporary death is bound to be inconvenient.

Me-Ouch -- Drat!  Those were my last unsnagged stockings, you wretch! -- Bluette

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
