                             Notes from the arena champ.

     With any luck, I'll survive this round and get my invite to ADM.  That will make
me an immortal Champ for the summer FtF.
     I haven't been much of a tourney performer prior to this, but the boss had a
warrior who looked just like me TC Champs not too long ago, so perhaps there is hope.

     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 TURNING BACK win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE beat A MAN and A MAN lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as COLLEEN 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.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And sending BLUE JACKET to the Dark Arena was 
supposed to be one of your better ideas, SEA DOGS?  We're all going to die in the 
end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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
