                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'll admit that was not the sequel I had in mind.  But this is the arena, people
die.  After all, it COULD have been me.  I wouldn't have liked that at all.

                                      Anvil

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DULLENS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  DULLENS saw the first turn for ARCANE 
ROYALTY, a 4-1-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take 
note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see FLOYD 
CASTAWAY win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CORKY beat WOLFDOG and 
WOLFDOG lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, 
lost to GHOST OF ELDRAD, BUT ANVIL is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  The Yellow Dog Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

You can sneak up on the Ghost of Eldrad if you're... Bearfoot

Corky -- They said you had to win "so you would stay."  Huh.  I lost, and *I* am
staying anyway.  I don't see why that wouldn't work with you. -- Wolfdog
P.S.  I wouldn't *mind* if someone tried to bribe me with a win.

And a couple of worthless standbys eat sand. -- Laughter Redknife and Blackbuck
