                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  I'm here to tell you, the Venomous Concubine was REALLY rude.  No wonder
people started calling her "venomous."  What a nasty tongue she has.

                                       Dasher

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, CLIFFHOME?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see LEONARDO win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RUNNA DAMILL 
beat RIQUETTIE and RIQUETTIE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as DASHER stays top dog 
in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, CLIFFHOME?   
     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 CLIFFHOME's 
morgue.  More variety.  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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Scrod Boy -- I see you as...grilled fish.  Soon. -- Riquettie

Ah, the Userous Merchant.  If he really thinks he can get away with that insurance
claim against me, he has another think coming.  *I* am the injured party here! --
Bent Fender

Bent just doesn't know how to deal with the Userous Merchant.  A smile, a friendly
word, and a very firm stance will do it. -- Connie Pakkit

I will admit to some slight curiosity as to what kind of cult a half-elf would join,
but not enough curiosity to lose the fight to him. -- Carter Pillar
