                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello, Cliffhome!  Today is a happy, yet sad day.  I am off to the Isle to
continue my career, but I am saddened that I will be leaving my home, my teammates,
and my many fans.  I salute you, Nilismarin Salm, for a great fight.  I have never
been hit harder than you hit me in our fight.  I am off!  Long life, Cliffhome!

                                          -- Zantos

Here are Zantos' statistics for those interested:  11-13-8-15-17-7-13, favorites
VL/VL/LG/learns riposte.  I was surprised with the VL.  He fought so well at Low/VL
that I was sure that was his favorite.  He is off to Home Guard to join my other new
Advanced crew.

                                          -- Stillgard

                                      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 ENOCH win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ENOCH beat 
MENDARLIN VORO and MENDARLIN VORO lost 9 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SOUL WARRIORS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BASH BROS CHILDREN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
