                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Karolvingar the Roving Demon, and a true gentleman for all his demonic
nature.

                                     Blhu Murther

                                      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.  Later days, HOT STUFF, since BLUE MOON 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see MORAVIA MAUVE win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, RAT RACE beat KINGFISHER and KINGFISHER lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as BLHU 
MURTHER stays top dog in the city.  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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

I have no wish to associate with this Kung-Fu Master.  He uses his "martial art" as a
license to put his hands where he ought not.  Disgraceful. -- Moravia Mauve

Rat Race -- The trouble with entering a rat race is, even if you win, you're still a
rat.  I won't have anything to do with it. -- Saffira

Through the Window -- What, you're back?  And your aim is as bad as ever.  Good thing
that the handbills that pass for newspapers around here don't have enough heft to go
breaking the glass, eh? -- Bisbee Blue

And the Orc.  Well, I suppose he has to eat, too, but I feel I wasted my time on him.
Not even a skill to show for that. -- Kingfisher

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
