                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well done, Forcas.  That win was clearly just what I needed.  And, since I don't
believe I have a teammate close enough to be real competition for you, I leave you
the title (and a slew of skills, besides).  Wear it in good spirits.

                                     Wendol Varn

P.S.  Good grief, shortsword, very low/very low, bash tactic?  I must have offended
some powerful god!
P.P.S.  Ah, Forcas, I see that you're graduating, too!  Congratulations.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, AIM 4 ISLE HAMMERZ, since 
STEEL WOLVES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for AIM 4 ISLE HAMMERZ, 
whose 2-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  Ha!  FIELDS OF ELYSIUM turned 
their 3-1-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch STEEL WOLVES' heads swell 
from their 5-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see KANE win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KANE beat YELLOW ORC and YELLOW ORC lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  FORCAS challenged ALJAFIR's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FORCAS takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
BALANCE OF TERROR, 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 FIELDS OF ELYSIUM.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TAMARIN MELLIRN was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  QUINTUS 
challenged down 22 against MIDDLE WAY's GRISHORT HURM.  What a weasel!  And golly 
gee, QUINTUS beat GRISHORT HURM.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  A big yahoo goes out to MAYHEM this turn, for 
revenging STEEL WOLVES' bloodfeud against BALANCE OF TERROR's warrior HEXIM HSIDAR.  
Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ALJAFIR to get a drink than The Vile Vizier! 
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Kane -- You caught me by surprise.  You won't next time. -- Nynaeve Haxan

Kane -- I'm waiting for you. -- Hexim Hsidar

Novelius -- A waste of a TV challenge.  You almost lost.  Why don't you challenge
the DM.  That would be entertaining. -- Trevisa Dinara

Attila the Hun -- Gods, that was horrible!  What are you, some kind of tourney baby?
-- Vinn Wulf, wincing

Drogba -- You must be a "found one," because you sure aren't a hero.  At least, not
by my definition, though you may, of course, prove me wrong in the future.  Go one,
do something heroic!  I'm watching! -- Stelra Tirins

Rooney -- My hero! -- Tamarin Mellirn
P.S.  And not just because I won, either.  I can tell, it's a kind of shiver I get,
that you're a truly heroic person...somewhere behind that beard.
P.P.S.  How cool, I get to be an elf!  I figured I might end up, well, something
else, but being an elf is too cool!

Lampard -- A lamp post with spots? -- Grishort Hurm
P.S.  At least *I* didn't have to be an elf.  What a distasteful thought!

Lenislichi of Venjek, Venomous Concubine -- Er, ah.  I think I'll pass on that one,
ma'am. -- Vinn Wulf

Morrus Reltikar, Experienced Mercenary -- Well, why should I?  You can't have been
successful and provident, or you wouldn't have to fight in the arena to support
yourself during your decline years. -- Wendol Varn

Shagrath, Professional Assassin -- Ha! -- Erbin Frorlin, gone away

Aim Reduce Hammer -- That was unnecessary. -- Ghost of a Fratsfa Slave

Aim Better Hammer -- You need to work on your name's message, boy. -- Dugald
