                             Notes from the arena champ.

     As ye can see, with me feet propped up, that me be quite comfy in da Duelmaster
throne.  That be cause me belong here!  It be a long time comin mind ye.  But afore
me get ahead O' meself, me be needin ta thank some people for helpin O' Smack ta get
here.  First me would like ta thank that Compactor fella for bein so kind as ta give
up ye spot withoot throwin a shot.  Me had ta get a new seat though as the old one be
ta uh... compact for me.  Next me be thankin Vind...Vandoc...Vinconcubine.  Me thinks
that be her name... anyway thanks for giving O' Smack an arse whoopin and some skills
ta make me more suited ta me throne.  Lastly, me want ta thank Cloudshadow for
neither bein a cloud nor a shadow as me smacked her 'round.  Oh yeah and them Street
Walkers for taken me calls at all hours of da night when O'l Owsly was nae watchin.
Now that be oot O' da way me can be movin on ta better things, like raisen me mug ta
all ye lads and lassies that be sticken ta da games after all these years!
Slanche!!!  Da first pint be on me!
     So here me sit ale in one hand, feet up on me stool that looks like the
Compactor's old throne, (thought me told them ta throw that thing oot?) wonderin what
ta do with me time.  Maybe me will call up Nailin Palin an have her show up in that
school girl ootfit me like so much!  Or maybe me will leave the Duelmaster throne for
a wee bit ta do some eggin at Sporticus's hoose.  Anyway, ye can bet that whatever it
be O'l Smack does be fun and excitin.  Til we find out if me own da throne again.
May ye women be delicious and ye drink be stout!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LAPUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, CARDOW HUNTERS, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  
STREET WALKERS turned their 5-0-1 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this 
turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 
4-0-1 is nice, but don't get cocky, BLACK KELTS, the Fates teach humility, and the 
Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see PADDY O'SADISM win a 
fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LHISSON beat SNOWDROP and SNOWDROP 
lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
LAPUR may be getting bland, as SMACK O'MALLEY 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, LAPUR?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  METAL MINCERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like STREET WALKERS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, CLOUDSHADOW was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but 
LUCKY EIREANN has challenged up by 27 in an attempt against JULIANUS.  Not that I'm 
surprised or anything, but LUCKY EIREANN was defeated by JULIANUS, leaving the latter 
lower for recognition points.  And we have SALAMANDER in a challenge, going down 14 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SALAMANDER showed great skill and 
promise when he was beat by CLOUDSHADOW.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy RUG 101 a drink tonight!  Anyone 
who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good side!  Honor is like 
a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide
