                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well gosh darn.  This was not supposed to happen.  My turn was supposed to be after
RD took the throne.  He ran into a little problem.  I will let him get into that in
the PAs.  Old M. Chardinee put up a pretty good fight.  Almost like he was going to
be allowed to sit on the throne if he won.  Either that or the lack of warriors
around here left plenty of open time at the gym for the stand-ins to work out.  Not
quite sure who I will be fighting next turn as RD is going after the only competition
within range.  Probably a stand-in.  If it's Khalums Dwarf it should be an
interesting fight, same style matup.  My manager has personally seen him dispatch a
legit CC in the past.

Crossing my fingers for a victory.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CLIFFHOME brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see RUNNA DAMILL win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
THE USEROUS MERCHANT beat LUM BUSBY and LUM BUSBY lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as 
VANILLA 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!   
     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.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  WHEELIE JUNE, a 
glorious 4-5-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad JINDA-BAN.  We're all going to 
die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in CLIFFHOME to get a drink than The Choking 
Ogre!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Last turn's personals, and sorry for the formatting error:

Average Joe -- I don't think you came by that name honestly.  You don't seem average
to me. -- Redd Corvait

Runna Damill -- Huh, talk about the mills grinding fine, yours ground me lumpy.  I'm
never going to get this fixed, am I? -- Bent Fender

Torchlight Kid -- Hmm, better than being named "DA Bait" or something, I suppose. --
Kartikaya

The Ambitious Guard?  He's courting road kill status. -- Lum Busby

Lum is so mean!  I think the Guard's cute. -- Wheelie June

Our congratulations to Average Joe. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Corrent personals:

Average Joe -- Huh, we congratulated you last time, though maybe you couldn't tell,
our personals got so hashed up.  But we still congratulate you.  It's an on-going
congratulations.  Just so you know. -- Bent Fender

Runna Damill -- You see?  If you go running around the mill too much, you get ground
up.  Or down.  It's odd that they should both mean the same thing, when they SOUND so
different. -- Redd Corvait

Torchlight Kid -- You're a nasty one. -- Kartikaya

Ah, the old Userous Merchant.  Like this was unusual?  They're all userous, it's how
they stay in business. -- Lum Busby

Dangerous Criminals should be dropped off the cliff. -- Wheelie June

Jorja -- I apologize for the silence.  We the only the two of us here the least I can
do is help you keep it entertaining. -- Otis

     Entertainment is good.

Redd Corvait -- That knots it up between us, 2-2.  Needed a little strat change as it
looks like you have my number when I run the usual.  Hopefully I can take back the
lead this next turn. -- Runna Damill

This should have been in last turn's DM column but Otis was too busy to send it in.
Average Joe, given that name due to his stellar stats.  11-10-10-15-14-13-11 nothing
spectacular but bonused in Init, Rip, Att and Def.  Figured I would get it out there
since there since there were several remarks about his averageness (word?).  Off to
retirement in AD.

     Or averagicity?

Jinda-Ban -- Me not smart man but very good with hammer in and out of arena.  You
guys good teachers so me trade you skills for free body work after every fight -- TK

Kart, Rd, Bent, Redd and Vanilla -- You ole farts hurry up and move on to the Isle.
Leave Cliffhome to the younger crowd. -- Utano
