                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We have done this before, have we not, Wendigo?  I think the handicapper is
trying to do something very involved.  If he hasn't gotten it yet, too bad for him,
eh?  Good luck to you.

                                      Redbird

P.S.  Halbard?  That's insane.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, STARBASE 5, since 
GREENWARDENS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MARDUK win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, THULE beat PIE EYED PIPER and PIE EYED PIPER lost 7 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting 
bland, as REDBIRD stays top dog in the city.  Drake's Barbecue, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MALCORN's trash dumps? 
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
GREENWARDENS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DARK CREATION.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  STUMP was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have LYLYANNA in a challenge, going down 11 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought LYLYANNA showed great skill and promise 
when she bested STUMP.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the MALCORN 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 MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
