                             Notes from the arena champ.

I have not been posting a DM column like I should, my apologies.  It is an honor to
sit upon this throne and I should treat it as such.  Guru was correct in that I would
reclaim the throne when he stepped away for a bit.  I know it didn't go exactly as he
planned but he will make a fine representative for Cliffhome in AD.  If the
commission allows me to continue fighting I should be getting my invite soon as well.
Kartikaya you will be the first to get an invite to my going away party as you have
already expressed your desire for me to make a quick departure.

It looks like Team Triangle is going to be sitting out so I should be either fighting
Bent or a Stand in to defend my throne.  Good luck to all on the sands this turn.

                                      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.  Now let's all watch JINDA-BAN's 
heads swell from their 4-1-1 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see KARTIKAYA win a fight and gain 
15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat BERTHA and BERTHA lost 16 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be 
getting bland, as TORCHLIGHT KID 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.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in CLIFFHOME to get a drink than The Choking 
Ogre!  Any suggestions?  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

someone else.  Need to pay more attention in the future.  Congrats on the win though,
you deserve one every once in a while. -- Utano

Kartikaya -- You are too kind.  I am honored that such a distinguished gentleman such
as yourself would take the time to train me on my way to the top of the arena.  I am
sure we will be seeing more of each other in the future. -- Bertha
