     The view from the top of the Cliff was widely considered to be beautiful, and
Vonsitan looked at it and admired it dutifully.  The Feyranse Basin was spread out
below in a patchwork of dark trees and silver water, veiled with mist here and there.
"Okay," he said, "it isn't bad.  But it isn't home, either."
     His teammate Sauvarn sighed.  "True.  It's missing those critical
characteristics of home like... a Royal Inquisitor arriving with a hundred men to
arrest you for Thinking Treasonous Thoughts.  I don't know how you manage to get by
without that, I know *I* find it difficult--"
     "You're laughing at me, aren't you?"  Vonsitan sighed in his turn.  "Okay, I'm
being silly.  I know I'm lucky to have gotten away alive.  I know I'm lucky to have
found a place where an exiled minor Karian nobleman can live on his own terms... more
or less.  But..." he wrestled with ideas he hadn't tried to put into words before,
"I'm afraid I'll forget.  A lot of it is foggy in my mind now."
     "King Marik?"
     "No, I remember him.  And for sure I remember that pig Melarik--"
     "Who would be glad to see us dying slowly in the dungeons," Suavarn agreed.
     "And who might send half way around the world to find us and make sure that
happens--that's what I find hard to remember.  That any stranger might be in
Melarik's pay--"
     "They call that paranoia, cousin."
     "So?  Even paranoids have enemies."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't like Kung-Fusiasts, okay?  They make my stomach hurt.  Usually by
kicking me there....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CLIFFHOME.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
BASKERVILLE PIG?  He actually beat CLIFFHOME's AMBITIOUS GUARD, and walked away with 
11 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CLIFFHOME while they watched 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE clobber MY DEER WATSON.  She lost 5 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough 
at persuading LUM BUSBY to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
