                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hopefully this makes it in the newsletter.--

     Surprise!  Surprise!  Surprise!  I did get my invite even though we all thought
that I was short on PPs.  I believe we located where the extra points came from.
There was a turn with no CCs and we along with two others were in the champs just
below the DM.  Must be it, or I got some bonus points for beating Bent in the Title
fight but not getting to park my butt on the throne due to recognition points.
     Down to the usual.  Zig and Bertha are in position to take over the throne when
I leave.  Probably hinges on who gets the matchup with Bent as to which it is,
although Zig could get a stand-in and still have the recognition.  Whomever takes
over I wish them luck.  The FE advantages will start to catch up eventually.
     Now for my stuff.  9-9-12-17-17-5-15 Ad Ex Init and Parry, EX Rip, Att and Def.
LO/MOD Epee Lunge and learn Def.  Not too bad in my opinion but I will probably be
like the rest of Otis' graduates and just take my piece of land and hang out.  Ran
pretty close to my favs.

So long and farewell.

     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 ZAG win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ZAG beat JITNEY 
JOHNNY and JITNEY JOHNNY lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as UTANO stays top dog in the 
city.  The Choking Ogre, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they 
get this stuff?  From CLIFFHOME's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of CLIFFHOME.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Utano -- If I'd won that, it would have been a surprise.  I haven't winterized yet.
-- Bent Fender

Bertha -- You're an intimidating woman. -- Kartikaya

Dangerous Criminal, pish.  A pussycat. -- Lum Busby

Zag -- I think the handicapper doesn't like me.  Or else I need to bribe him, which I
suppose would come to much the same thing. -- Thea Dozzier

I figure the Userous Merchant's presence in the arena is part of some deep-laid,
insidious plot.  I just wish he'd get it DONE with and go away. -- Jitney Johnny

Zag -- I was not trying to kill you.  Why would I want to kill a cute little bug like
you?  I'd rather ask you for a date.  Or possibly a fig.  Even a dried apricot.... --
Jitney Johnny

Our congratulations to Utano. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Welcome, Dances with Meat.  Could we have the honor of knowing your manager's name?
Would not recommend heading into the arena with meat hanging around your neck.  The
lions DO get hungry during the day. -- Otis

What the heck is this?  Dances with Meat!  Did the butcher decide to close shop from
lack of business and try to pick up a few coins fighting his boys in the arena?  Glad
I'm outta here! -- Utano

Jit -- That would be one way to make it up to me. -- Zag

No replacement this turn.  Guess he decided to wait for his buddy since Utano got
called up and we needed another replacement.  Next turn full squad. -- Otis
