                             Notes from the arena champ.

Cynica -- The Master Blaster is pining for more long-winded combatants.  I'm a Piker,
who's more long-winded than me?  (no scum need reply)  Speaking of long-winded, that
Waldo gave a good-bye speech that went on and on and on to the point that the free
goodies lined up for the reception were looking like a busted deal.  But he wound it
up right before the good-natured muttering turned into out-and-out grumbling, (good
thought) and his drunken buddies gave him a good start towards The Isle...headfirst,
right off the end of the wharf.  Couldn't fly but he could swim. -- Wanda,
Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  The THE MOONDOGS guild has had a 4-1-0 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, NESTOR ORDH fought THE USEROUS MERCHANT and gained 14 
points and contributed to THE MOONDOGS' 4-1-0.  DAWN has lost to LIRVEL MOORN, 
falling 6 points, while helping make SPRINGBORN a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and WANDA remains KOLACT's top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that Don Corleone's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that KOLACT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Nestor Ordh -- Yes sir, I'm working on my uniqueness for to keep this job.  As it is
there's lots of new applicants so, being the seasoned vet I am, I'm feeling a tad
secure. (knock knock) -- Dawn

Nucleus -- Were you down?  You might've been down.  Or you might not've been down.
Or you might not've not've been down.  Or...I know I know it's tough debuting against
a knowledgeable, experienced fighter.  Or me even.  Ha! -- Buffalo Bob

Wanda -- Strangely enough, I find that I have a strong conviction that there are too
few active warriors in this arena, especially in the upper ranks.  It is totally
annoying, and I can't think of a thing we can do about it.  Drat. -- Cynica

Sir Cumference -- I can run around in circles for just so long, and then I fold.
Have you considered reducing your girth a little?  After all, if I saw the least
chance of getting my arms all the way around you, I might hug you and give you a big
kiss!  I don't say I WOULD, but I MIGHT, you never know. -- Lirvel Moorn

Oh, hey!  This is my day to CROW!  As opposed to EATING crow, you understand.
Because I defeated the Dangerous Criminal, and as any gladiator knows, this is NOT a
simple matter.  I am so stoked! -- Persea Quell

Dawn -- Well, shucks.  When you smiled, it was like the sun coming up.  (sigh)  And
then you hit me.  Low, kiddo, really low. -- Nestor Ordh

The Embezzling Scribe tried to pluck the feathers on my wings!  He didn't even LISTEN
when I started to explain how that'd make me crash into the lake, no, he just grabbed
again.  So I chopped him a little.  Not too much, I'm a gentle guy, really.  Just
enough to make sure he'll REMEMBER next time. -- Icarus

Wanda -- Great party!  Loved those native dancers! -- Nestor Ordh

Mothball -- Alas, you will be missed. -- Cynica, worried about stored woolens

Dawn -- Of course not.  Why would ANYONE fall off a street corner? -- Nestor Ordh

Icarus -- Young whelp!  You shouldn't go parading around in feathers like that unless
you want to be mistaken for a goose and plucked. -- Gromet Stonefinger, Scribe (the
charges of embezzlement are due to the jealousy of human scribes)

Persea Quell -- I will remember this, wench.  Gloating is a thing I do not tolerate.
-- Elormin Trigg, Criminal Mastermind in Training

Quiznos -- A little sloppy there.  Tighten up your moves, boy. -- M. Porliu Chardinee
