                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well... I didn't really want to stay here, but I didn't want to rent a car
either...  When you don't know what to do, says my manager, just wreck it.  So I
wrecked.

Tezcatlipoca the unsubtle

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MORYA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  DODGE BULLETS turned their 4-1-0 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see POISON IVY HAMMER 
win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VALERIAN beat SCARLET and 
SCARLET lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  PYRITE challenged MORYA's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, MORYA may 
be getting bland, as TEZCATLIPOCA 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.  What's the big D?  SONS OF MARS was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE DEATH LORDS.  
Ha ha ha ha!  WILD DAISY HAMMER was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to BOOMERANG of FORCE OF FIVE for challenging up by 20 to RENTAL CAR.  
BOOMERANG lost to get 70 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MORYA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the MORYA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Congrats again, Tez, on defending the Duelmaster Title.  You are a great champion and
Rental Car was simply not in your class.  Kudos to you and your manager. -- Finance
Manager
P.S.  And congratulations also to LP for his fine Mailer TC, although not in Morya,
plus the quite valuable TV in North Fork and The Turf War.

Mr. Michael and his Steel And Silk -- WOW!  What a fine big 58 point gain!  Shut down
our sparse 42, didn't you?  Yu da man, and I am avoiding!  Whew!  Kudos. -- Finance
Manager

Hammer -- My man; good luck in Ghana.  Spread the word. -- Finance Manager

Mordant Deserter -- Thanks for being my first.  I needed an easy start as I am not so
much myself.  Finance Manager is cheap and frugal these days. -- Capex

Pop Target -- Thank the gods you were there to pick on, because I cannot seem to
handle anyone else. -- Accruded Interest

Numidicus -- GOTCHA.  That will teach you not to kill my brethren.  Hah!  Stamped,
sealed, and delivered. -- Postage

Cloudrider -- You are a fine warrior and I am a lucky one. -- Taxes

What a fight!  That Sabretooth is of the sturdy kind and hits hard.  I am very proud
after this victory! -- White Bect

Finance Manager -- Please warn the Beautiful Lady Fern I am going to spend my
immortality prize. -- Tezcatlipoca, eager.
P.S.  Thanks, Michael!  If you get too many dumb rookies, give them a nice torch and
send them where you know!

Sorry, Cascella, I didn't choose to flatten your friend this time... pure random! --
Patte de S.

I guess I'll go naked, Lizard. -- White Bect

Patte De Saguar -- That's the first match vs you I felt was pretty good. -- Chandalen

Boomerang -- I had one of you when I was a kid until I broke it.  I still have the
touch. -- Scarlet

Lizard -- Finally!  A pet!  Now roll over and play dead. -- Jennsen

Pyrite -- Starting to lose my skills.  I better fire up the furnace. -- Cascella

Marcus Marcellus -- Good challenge!  I'll reciprocate it later. -- Theriult

Steel and Silk -- 58 points!  Impressive! -- D'Haran Empire

Colgate Smile -- Huh, even a crocodile can have one of those, if he brushes and
flosses.  It isn't such a big deal. -- Gopher Broke

Lucius Sulla -- You know how it goes, for every Roman, there is eventually a
Visigoth, or in this case a Sarmatian. -- Lily of Sarmatia

Accrued Interest -- "Accrued" or "a cruel" interest?  Ouch. -- Pop Target

Juggernaut -- Some has to stop you, but apparently that isn't me. -- Madeline

Taxes -- Bad word!  Oh, really BAD word! -- Cloudrider

Garrot -- But I rearranged your face with the BEST intentions.  It's much prettier
now. -- Pop Target

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and Dodge Bullets

Readers of Morya -- I've been sick, and the story has suffered for it.  What would
you prefer, that I synopsize to remind us where we were and then go on, or just drop
the whole storyline as being doomed? -- the Scribe
