                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Me Cairraig and me finally here.  Me, who would have thought me would be on the
duel throne.  Me, on the Isle with the likes o' Smack O'Malley, Killian McGuiness,
Pub O'Connor, and Luck Eirean.  Only me won't be, me had o'nuff o' fightin.  Me not
very good at it no how.  So enjoy this round on me, Cairraig Amadan!!

                                      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.  THE FOOLS turned their 2-1-0 turn into 
a 6th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Now let's all watch THE TAKEN's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  
Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  LAPUR saw the first turn for ZOMBIE 
EATERS, a 2-1-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take 
note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ZOMBIE LORD 
win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SERENA beat RAVAGE and RAVAGE 
lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
LAPUR may be getting bland, as CAIRRAIG AMADAN stays top dog in the city.  The 
Burning Tree, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From LAPUR's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  CARDOW HUNTERS 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 BLACK SAMURAI.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, AVOX was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.  And we have THE WHITE RABBIT in a challenge, going down 12 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought THE WHITE RABBIT showed great skill and 
promise when he subdued AVOX.  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.  Let's see, 7-3-0.  Pretty good record for a living 
warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for SUMIRE of BLACK 
SAMURAI.  Tsk.  You can run, JAYLA, but maybe you can't hide from BLACK SAMURAI.  
Killing SUMIRE is something the rest of SHADOWMIST may not be able to help you with.  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     What does the LAPUR 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 LAPUR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Sumire -- Not sure how you pulled that onff but well played! -- Perilous Quinn

Our congratulations to Cairraig Amadan.  For a guy with too many vowels in his name
(mostly A), you've done well. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Insurgent -- That was incredibly annoying.  Setting aside that you're a little squirt
of a woman (not bad looking, I admit), I really need another win.  Where is a
Persistent Beggar when I need him? -- Windglass

Enigma -- I admit it, I was confused.  I number enigmas right up there with
conundrums (conundra?) as pestilential problems more suited for other people.  I'd
rather have chocolate. -- Dancing Cat

Prexus -- Amazing what a little sand in the gears will do, isn't it? -- Sandstorm

Draaf -- Well... I just didn't see you down there. -- Morning Thunder

Flying Fool -- Ah!  A Fool and her victory are soon parted? -- Red Mare
