                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello again, Cliffhome.  First, let me thank Righteous Fuzz for an awesome
fight.  You definitely made me earn my seventh win in a row.  Looking at my possible
opponents, I see only Nilismarin Salm as one I have not already defeated.  I will
make no challenges again this turn, but maybe Salm will challenge me.  I look forward
to my next fight.  I fully expect to be here again, so see you all in a week.

                                          -- Zantos

                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see RIGHTEOUS FUZZ win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
MENDARLIN VORO beat ZILCH and ZILCH lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as ZANTOS 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BASH 
BROS CHILDREN, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like SHEWISH CANDY 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

Nilismarin -- That is something I can believe. -- Kali

Jacko -- That was a surprise.  Thanks. -- Enoch

Chucko -- Well done. -- Ash

Kali -- I guess.  I'm not sure I like it, but it seems to have worked. -- Nilismarin
Salm
P.S.  The decorations were amazing!  I had to take a second look at 'em.

Stillgard -- Thank you.  That is a thought to mull over. -- Korgendal Fars

Two wins over the Userous Merchant, three losses to managed gladiators.  Not good for
us, but great for the arena.  We were beginning to think we'd never see such days
again. -- Jinda-Ban

Stillgard -- No worries.  She was +4 Att/+4 Def but didn't seem to want to fight.
May try to get her back in the dead tournies, but without her showing any knack it
may be a while.  Chucko did his job and got our revenge.  UAK will be out of the
arena for a bit, need to get some warriors timed for the summer.  But we'll be back.
-- Otis

ZDH -- Good to see you back.  Hopefully you will still be around when I return. --
