                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So long, Shellback.  You tried your best, but never could quite put it all
together for a TV run.  Perhaps you'll have better luck against the Dark Arena or in
Freshmen.
     All of the preparations for our zombie have been made.  There is a spot open on
the team.  A witchdoctor has been contracted.  But you know those contractors.  They
give you an estimate.  Tell you how long it will take.  Then, it starts.  They need a
full moon.  The stars aren't aligned right.  They require more powdered rhino horn.
More gold dust.  More frankincense.  Before you know it, its over budget and late.

So we'll see.

Hull Scrubber

                                      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.  BIG LAKE BANDITS 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.  Now let's all watch SUMMERTEETH's heads swell from 
their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see FISHWIFE win a fight and gain 21 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GRU-SON OF GROTT beat GUNTHER and GUNTHER lost 13 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be 
getting bland, as HULL SCRUBBER 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  SHELLBACK's 14-2-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  
Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey SEA DOGS, whyja send 
SHELLBACK to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
