                             Notes from the arena champ.

Left over from last time--

     Well, the Dark Frog isn't pale, but he isn't looking well.  Unless "well" is
different for dark frogs than for others.

                                   Jock MacBeagh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MURSKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see FINN MAC KARMEK win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FINN MAC 
KARMEK beat THE DARK FROG and THE DARK FROG lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MURSKA may be getting bland, as FURIOUS 
FROGPALER stays top dog in the city.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MURSKA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  BATTLE FROGS 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 SOUND.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but 
I'll be glad to see LORD'S PRAYER and FOOT OF PRIDE at The Victory Tavern tonight 
celebrating their bloodfeud victory over RAUCOUS.  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.  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

What did I ever do to M. Chardinee, that he should SAVAGELY defeat me? -- Finn mac
Karmek

Yes, and the Khalhums Dwarf "bested" me, too!  What is happening, that standbys are
winning? -- Deirdrie

Deirdrie -- They're just getting on the bandwagon.  Except for Jock, we ALL lost.
And no, it isn't fair, but it's life. -- Sean ap Kormak and Oisin

Savage Beating -- I'm probably as surprised as you about this fight.  The crowd was
happy with the outcome and so was I.  Maybe we can try it again sometime. -- Timbre

Pima -- Where did you come from with your Maul?  I officially hate Mauls!  They hurt!
Your eleventh fight to my 4th... you should have won.  Please teach me a little more
next time. -- Raucous

I'm very pleased with my Team this turn with their 4-1 record.  I'm hoping for more
like this, maybe next turn? -- Trim, Mgr. of Sound (15)

Trim -- It's the perversity of the universe at work.  Or simply an example (for Jock,
at least) of Small Arena Syndrome.  As to losing to standbys, I think some of my
gladiators here are sulking.  They think I don't pay "enough" attention to them.
That is a matter of definition, and they can be glad for the attention they get.
What if I decided to send them to the Dark Arena, eh? -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Smile Waffle. -- Jorja and the Children of Llyr

Furious Frogpaler -- Got me that time!  All my frogs have been paled.  A shocking
thing to see. -- Jock MacBeagh
P.S.  Even more shocking was the input error.  I was not comfortable with that
strategy, and Jorja was actually moved to contact the Commission and get it (I hope)
changed.

     Most shocking of all that she NOTICED your input error.

The Dark Frog -- Ominous, distinctly ominous. -- Deirdrie
P.S.  And I can't even claim an input error.

Anybody ever wonder about those Kung-Fu Masters going around with no steel at all? --
Finn mac Karmek

Danny Boy -- AAAAAH!  Kicked by the Foot of Pride! -- Sean ap Kormak

Lord's Prayer -- I once knew a guy named Lord, but he wasn't much for praying. --
Oisin
