                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Break a tooth, Incisor.  We already did this.

                                     Ultorino

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NOSFERATU win a fight and gain 9 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLU 
JON beat DULGIN and DULGIN lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as INCISOR takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blue Boar Inn, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUKAL's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  BLUE 
MOON, 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 DARK WARDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, BLU JON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.  A big yahoo goes out to BLUETTE this turn, 
for revenging BLUE MOON's bloodfeud against CRIMSON DEATH's warrior GLINDORA.  Heh, 
heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  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

Glorinda and Debarrows -- Now those are very interesting names, but they didn't help
on the win column.  Nope. -- Nosferatu and Gangrel (REALLY cool names!)

Venomous -- What?!  You're alive????? -- Brujah

Three and Oh.  Sixty percent is coming.... -- FTF Manager

Bluette -- Sorry about the fast fight.  You did not even get a chance to defend
yourself, but with your inability to defend yourself you taught me much on defense.
-- Trake Darrows

Nosferatu -- All I have to say is, oww, oww, oww.  By the way, watch our for Trake.
-- Glindora

Bleu Bonet -- That was a nice one minuet fight. -- Dulgin
P.S.  Sorry about that frenzy, I was not going to kill you.

Gangrel -- Good fight, but we shall see who out waits who, next time. -- DeBarrows

Dentine -- I used to chew that stuff, but it turns on you.  Trident's better. -- Blu
Jon
P.S.  Unpaid ad?  Although if someone wants to pay me, I'm willing.

Trake Darrow -- Looks like you've got a problem.  Shortsword or hatchet is the way
for you to go. -- Bluette
P.S.  I know exactly what my career is and should be.  I'm a doll.

Dulgin -- Drat.  You do that very well. -- Bleu Bonet

Brujah -- I noticed. -- Kerby Ironfoot, Khalhums Dwarf
