                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This isn't the third time I've fought Bradley, but it's the third in a row, with
a win every time.  Wins are good, I don't want to give the wrong impression, but I'm
BORED with Bradley.  He's got very little to teach me anymore, and no conversation at
all.

                                    Zebd Arvin

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ALJAFIR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY, since ZOMBIE 
SQUAD 2 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see BELLONA CHIST win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, BRUNHILDA beat SENLUM NOSH and SENLUM NOSH lost 9 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ALJAFIR may be getting bland, as ZEBD 
ARVIN stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ALJAFIR?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ALJAFIR's 
morgue.  More variety.  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 ALJAFIR to get a drink than The Vile Vizier! 
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

M. Chardinee was really dragging his feet today.  I was beginning to look for the
lions--you know, the ones they threaten us with when the fights run long.  "If you
don't finish and get out of there, we're going to send out the lions!"  Ten minutes
was pushing our luck. -- Alida Bern

Hannable -- I got tired of defeating you, or maybe complacent.  It won't happen
again. -- Senlum Nosh

Edgar Allan Poe -- Think of it as the fall of the house of Ussher. -- Bellona Chist
P.S.  In a mild way.

Yeats -- Not hardly. -- Kaireen Lamar
