                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I "viciously subdued" a Noble Assassin to take the title?  Oooo-kay.

                                    Fedora Linde

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SOLVEN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see PLUCKED SCRIBE win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PLUCKED 
SCRIBE beat KORINE ORLES and KORINE ORLES lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as FEDORA LINDE 
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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  I 
guess I can give a little credit to KINKY MCKINK of THE SAVAGE KINKS for challenging 
up by 20 to GORLON INTHUR.  KINKY MCKINK lost to get 65 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SOLVEN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SOLVEN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SOLVEN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens
