                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Lyratilan!

     I am once again the top dog here in Lyratilan.  I have received my invitation to
the Isle where I will head to Home Guard to pound Hurin upside his head a few times.
I salute you all.  Glory to Lyratilian, the greatest city in all of Alastari.

Lord Protector Loial

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LYRATILAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, ARCANE BOOKSHELF, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates 
are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see THE STAND win a fight and 
gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RUTHLESS JAYWALKER beat BLOODY MARY and BLOODY 
MARY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
LYRATILAN may be getting bland, as LOIAL 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, LYRATILAN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
LYRATILAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  ARCANE BOOKSHELF the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DENNY'S MENU.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  THOM MERRILIN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LYRATILAN'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 LYRATILAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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
