     "Top team again," Gorlon Inthur said.
     Fedora Linde shrugged.  "Okay, we can work with that--"
     "How?" Lynnis demanded.  "Nothing HAPPENS here, so what can we talk about?  Sit
around and tell each other how bored we are?"
     Fedora grinned suddenly.  "You were grousing about that Rooster, maybe we should
do an essay or something on recipes for stewed chicken!"
     "Oh, gods, no!"  Gorlon leaped to his feet.  "We can NOT do that!  It's... it's
the kind of thing they'd do over in Caleam.  Who wants to be like the Caleamites?"
     "We could make an offensively suggestive play on words with Caleamite," Dejanna
said.  She laughed.  "No wonder the Rooster is cranky!"
     "We could get into trouble for."  Lynnis frowned.  "Chicken soup... onions,
celery, carrots...."
     "If you're determined to go down that road," Korine said, "how about eel pie?
Or here's a good one!  Chicken-fried rattlesnake!"
     "How about bread and cheese," Gorlon said, "and we try to think of something
more entertaining for a future need?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DEJANNA KALM win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DEJANNA KALM beat CRANKY OLD ROOSTER and CRANKY OLD ROOSTER lost 13 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, 
as JULES 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.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Luger -- Wow, I beat a lord protector!  That's... a bit of a surprise.  Good, though.
