                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was unintentional, Ghost of Nikkita.  And a lot faster than I expected:  a
two-shot?  Did you have low CN?

                                     Deimoon Farr

P.S.  And the bit about me "offering my hand" at the end of the fight... it wasn't my
intention to mock you.  More of a "say it isn't so" gesture.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KOLACT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for THE CLUB, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 
into 12th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see COTIA MORTIS win a 
fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SURFER ON ACID beat MONETTE and 
MONETTE lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, KOLACT may be getting bland, as DEIMOON FARR 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  THIRSTY THUGS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was VIKINGS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  ABOMINATION has cause to pause today, as HUMAN 
CENTIPEDE was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  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

MatchUp Gods -- Looks like my last 3 fights are gonna be against computer characters.
Especially w/ me challenging the Dark Arena for my graduation present.  What is up w/
that, are all the real warriors in this arena too afraid to fight me? -- Human
Centipede

Mader -- Doesn't matter how much armor you wear if I keep throwing critical hits
every other attack. -- MorMon

Drock -- Not to bad considering that's my first fight w/ that weapon.  I think I'm
pretty good w/ it.  Course, you would be the better expert considering you got a REAL
close look at it. -- 2012

Dark Moon Down -- Sorry about that.  Just wanted to try out that weapon. -- Sy Fy

Selena Bright -- Well, that could have gone better.  I look forward to fighting you
again & seeing different results. -- Iron Man 2

H to the Izzo -- Time for you to go away. -- G.M.

Nikkita -- Dead?

DEIMOON FARR -- Kill a DM, Take his throne, and hear the lamentation of his women...
and then leave without getting bloodfeuded. -- PAGAN

Ally Year Money -- So many skills... so few places to keep them. -- A.C.

Monette -- You are a dodgy little freak. -- GOY

Young Hov -- You hit like a Mule + you can take a shot!  Next time I need to stay out
of your reach. -- C.M.

Tommy Gun -- Ready for round 2? -- MES

Looks like the Top just opened up. -- PAGAN

Dr. Feelgood -- Even though you're thinking of getting in some new recruits, it was
not my intention to force you to do it NOW.  Rather embarrassing that it should
happen just as I'm about to leave. -- Deimoon Farr
