                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And so the venemous concubine provided the competition for my first title
defense.  It wasn't much competition, but I guess it is what passes for a warrior
these days.  At least until someone else gets up here.
     Personally I hope that I manage to fight this next turn.  It seems the holiday
celebrations took a lot out of my manager.  Hopefully we managed to get put on
maintenance.  If so, I'll be back next turn.  If not, then maybe someone else will
get their shot.  Perhaps Moon-eye?

Good luck to all!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KOLACT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, Bacon Makin', since 
VIKINGS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all watch 
THE MOONDOGS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CIRIC win a fight and 
gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ULF SUNDERHELM beat MOON-EYE and MOON-EYE lost 6 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may 
be getting bland, as CHAGAN 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  It's about time FLATLINERS got beat for picking on 
warriors like FERRIN MONDOR.  Bravo, THE MOONDOGS.  See you at Don Corleone's.  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the KOLACT 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 KOLACT.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Lia Hobern -- Well, it seems all I needed was a good challenge strategy!  Now that
was a nice little plan. -- Skyhawk, the not so grounded

A Kung-Fu Master?  Dang, I almost had that one! -- Ciric

Venemous Concubine -- Not enough for the title and not enough for me.  Go back to
your night job. -- Hagar

Skyhawk -- You can have the sky today, it's so *cold*!  Looking at a *high* of 4
degrees?  No way I'm getting up into the *colder* layers. -- Lia Hobern
P.S.  And the Infirmary was warm.

Friday the 13th -- Take that, you uncapitalized out! -- Moon-Eye

Footloose -- What's that got to do with bacon? -- Lunelle Merrin
P.S.  Sounds more like pickled pig's feet to me.

Bugs Bunny -- Stick to carrots, bub. -- Ferrin Mondor
P.S.  I'd criticize your equipage, but if you do better, I might lose.  Can't have
that.

Vikings -- Yeah, we know.  We'll work our way up as fast as we can, but it's the
pits.  We've been in that situation ourselves. -- Orbin Paes, for the Moondogs

Do you suppose there's some hidden advantage to having lower case letters in the team
name?  And if so, is there some way we can access it? -- the Moondogs
