                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ethon el Keer, you are a lazy bum!  How DARE you lose and leave ME with the
column to write?  It's all a really nasty plot, isn't it?

                                       Stiljanz

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VEASTIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TAMARA RAHN win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
TAMARA RAHN beat KONJOR and KONJOR lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as ETHON EL KEER takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  PACMAN 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the VEASTIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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
