                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And here I am again!  I can't say I'm exactly confused by it, experience WILL
make a difference, but I didn't expect to hold onto the title.  Somebody, teach me
some skills.  That might be my only lack.
     And I'll take a moment here to salute Froggy Foo Foo and Sssink!, tourney
victors.  Good work.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIATOLI ISLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 
is nice, but don't get cocky, BIG LAKE BANDITS, the Fates teach humility, and the 
Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see COLOGNE win a fight 
and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, COLOGNE beat SIR EDWARD and SIR EDWARD lost 
17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI 
ISLAND may be getting bland, as KURELLEU ZIEN stays top dog in the city.  The Don't 
Drop Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From NIATOLI ISLAND's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  DEMONSPAWN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like BIG LAKE BANDITS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, PRINCE VALIANT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what 
brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  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
