                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay!  I'm graduating.  It must be the fifty fights that was the trigger, since
I already had the wins, the fights, the political points.  Only one rating, but
sometimes the Commission doesn't seem to care about that.  Or else they'd given up
waiting for me to get another.  Not that I care, however it worked.
     Faith, good try.  Maybe you can take it next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     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 ZANDER win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ZANDER beat TURKEY 
LEG TANGO and TURKEY LEG TANGO lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as MY DEER WATSON takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
