                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If all I have to face is a Veteran Mercenary, clearly, I have nothing to worry
about.  He's so old, he's got rust spots.

                                   Crazy Daizy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WINDMILL WILLY win a fight and gain 30 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
WINDMILL WILLY beat SHARK BAIT and SHARK BAIT lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SCUTTLEBUTT 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next 
guy, but hey SEA DOGS, whyja send PEARL DIVER to the Dark Arena, look at his record, 
huh?  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in NIATOLI ISLAND to get a drink than The Don't 
Drop Inn!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

The Kung-Fu Master was pathetic.  I knew he would be. -- Dirty Howel

Mother Teresa -- You're kidding me!  You should not be here. -- Windmill Willy
P.S.  I mean, sure, Niatoli's a slum, you can be here just fine.  You shouldn't be in
the ARENA.

The Fratsfa Slave is a freak, and I don't like freaks.  I smacked him on the
knuckles. -- Grandma's Fan

We salute Niatoli's tourney participants and hope for a better showing next time.
But at least there was a showing. -- Jorja and the Sewing Circle
