                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am proud to serve Iaye as your champion.  I hope I can meet the standards that
Senator Wiley set as your Duelmaster.  He was a great champion, as I hope to be.  I
await all challengers.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
SHADE win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPLASH beat BUZZ and BUZZ 
lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster 
SISTER MARY JANE challenged this turn.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, 
as SISTER MARY JANE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  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.  
What's the big D?  HER BEST ASSETS 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 LENPROS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, SISTER MARY JANE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the IAYE 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.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
