                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahh!  Finally I was able to win a Duelmaster Crown.  A lifelong dream!  Does
that make me the best of all the bridges?  (chuckle)  Well, at least one with a lot
of notoriety and acclaim?
     Back to the real world, Stoga Steel was just as deserving of the crown as am I.
Rather evenly matched, I simply outlucked him to steal his crown.  I am happy,
though.  I will take good luck any day.
     The Golden Gladiators have been doing pretty well of late, and I'll bet some
think we are a bunch of godlings.  To dispel that falsehood, I shall give you a
summary of us. Our "lovely" birth stats are: (placed in numerical order to preserve
the actual identities.)

CN - 9,13,14,16,18

Not necessarily such a glamorous bunch, eh?
     Here I am ready to defend my Title.  See you soon.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MORGAR win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AMBITIOUS GUARD 
beat JOHN DERE and JOHN DERE lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  STOGA STEEL 
challenged WILLAF's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE stays top dog in the 
city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From WILLAF's trash dumps?   
     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 it looks like 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.  STOGA STEEL was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in WILLAF to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens
