                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, great, this time I get the Convicted Assassin.  Such a tense contest, I
about fell asleep during it.

                                    Marey D'Nuit

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, GOLDEN GLADIATORS, since 
PUNNY AMINALS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see HIROKAWA win a fight and gain 11 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GOLDWATER beat SHIORIME and SHIORIME lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, 
as MAREY D'NUIT 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  PUNNY AMINALS 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 GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see 
BRUAR and MAXIMUM RESULTS at The Welcome Wench tonight celebrating their bloodfeud 
victory over FANGS ARDENTE.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

four bikes on property available for checkout, as the Metro parks are next door as 
well.  The rooms are blocked--ask for the "Reality Simulations" room block.  There are 
many restaurants and nightspots nearby and at the Mall, as well as a cafe in the 
hotel.  

The tournament information sheet will be out imminently.  We hope you're all looking 
forward to the tournament and that we will see you there!
