                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Kinda hard to find time to write these things when you have to attend all the
parties people invite you to as the DM.  I know it comes with the postion, so I
apologize whole heartedly.
     Bent, what are you up to?  Are you getting the urge to move on to the Isle.
Jumping out with the first attack like that.  Surprisingly enough, that is the first
time you and I have met in the arena.  Must be that I have seen you fight so many of
my teammates and heard them go over the fights ad nauseum, that it felt like we had
fought before.
     This time I leave it up to chance as none of the UAKers issued any challenges.
Could previous DM Guru Gnu jump back into the fray or is he just hanging around and
training for the huge winter tournament that will be upon us soon.  Saw all the meat
guys working back at the butcher shop, musta got a big order for the holidays and it
made them miss last turn.  Or were they packing up to leave again?  Hope not, my two
new teammates need someone to play with and I don't think the standins are going to
cut it.

Hopefully see you next turn...
Zig

Might get two of these this turn as last turn's was turned in a little late.

     Some new blood up in the CCs this turn as Kartikaya makes an appearance.
Hopefully I fare better than my sister did last turn.  That is if we get matched up.
Otis was on holiday and failed to send in any challenges.  Although I hate to miss
the time Bent and I spend on the sands together.  I always know I will learn a thing
or three before my day is done.  Hopefully I will be here again next turn, so enjoy
the view from the top.

Zig

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  LUM BUSBY caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ZAG and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LUM BUSBY put down ZAG, 
causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Although BENT FENDER 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious ZIG.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

You're not pinning this one on me!  He was dead when I walked into the arena.  All 5
People in the audience must have left for the bathroom after Hans' fight and walked
back in to see me standing over his corpse.  What the heck, I can't get in any
trouble... right? -- Frans

Smashed that little girly man into the ground.  Teach him to beg. -- Hans

I'm Hans, and I'm Franz, and we're here to pump...you up!

Jit -- So where are we going on the date?  I haven't been out much.  Spend most of my
time at the guild house, training.  A nice surf and turf would be great! -- Zag

Lum -- Just tryin to toughen you up a little bit.  You were getting soft, fighting
all those standins.  You let me know when you get recovered and we'll paint the town.
-- Bertha

Jorja -- Looks like it's back you and me!  I don't think that's the first time I've
said that. -- Otis

Zig -- Huh, I might as well come out in primer and just FORGET a paint job.  At least
until my arena career is finished one way or the other. -- Bent Fender
P.S.  Not to mention what the salted slush on the roads does to it.

Bertha -- Today I find you intimidating.  Too bad, I wasn't in the mood for being
intimidated, and now I'll have to start over. -- Lum Busby

Zag -- Don't get ahead of yourself, woman.  Some things improve with age. --
Kartikaya

Turkey Leg Tango -- I don't think the wrinkled gray stockings are convincingly
turkey-leg-ish. -- Jitney Johnny

T-Bone Two-Step -- Works for me, I brought the steak sauce and it was all fine. --
Thea Dozzier

Didn't think Franz would be the killer out of my two new recruits. -- Otis

Yah, just keeping the little girly man beggars and thieves of our streets. -- Franz

Yah, Yah, our hero Arnold doesn't like them hanging around. -- Hans

What the hell are you two babbling about -- Bertha

Lum -- Don't woory, I can tone it down a bit outside the arena.  Just don't expect
any preferential treatment in it. -- Bertha

Karty -- I'm beginning to think you don't like me. -- Zag

The meat guys are back, might get a little rough for my youngsters.
