                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This time, I defeated Floyd Castaway.  I'm sure I've done it before, and that he
has beaten me before.  Back and forth.  Nothing personal in it.  I don't even blame
the Castaway for being called Rirorni.  That's the Commission's doing, and he may
even be Rirorni.  Thing is, so am *I*, and those IDIOTS at the Commission won't admit
it.  Think they can get away with saying that I "don't fit the profile."  What the
HECK?  I have a FINE Rirorni profile, bequeathed me by my parents, who are both
Rirorni.  Those clerks at the Commission are too... clerkish.  I was going to say
"hidebound," but then it occurred to me that maybe I could arrange for them to BE
hidebound, in the literal sense.  I'll have to look into that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  ARROGANT BASTARD caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested FLOYD CASTAWAY and was 
awarded 10 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ARROGANT 
BASTARD put down FLOYD CASTAWAY, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has GRIM LAUGHTER in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DULLENS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Nimble Dancer -- Lucky indeed, and you know how it is with luck.  You start depending
on it, and it leaves you. -- Blackbuck
P.S.  I'm Rirorni, too, all our team is, but unless Jorja raises a storm in the
Commission office, they ignore it.

D'Artangnon -- I don't care if you're a genuine dwarf or not, I don't like your
facial hair. -- Ironhand

Floydriffic -- That's the way it goes.  Oh, well, give the crops another month, and
I'll "savagely defeat" all the farmers in the area.  Ha. -- Hailstones

Matching me against the "Teddy Bear of Death" is all part of an evil plot, isn't it?
