                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not today, Prince Connor.  Today, it's mine.  Tomorrow, who knows?

                                     Bitt Betro

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE FAMILY, since LUROCIAN 
ROYALTY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see UMBAR CONN III win a fight and gain 20 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CAPTURED ORC beat SENJIRO and SENJIRO lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ELOWAN takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Dripping 
Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From VEASTIAN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for VEASTIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young (TALENJ of 
THE FAMILY):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

yourself on top of me.  Rather a violent form of tagg, I must say. -- Senjiro

And what am I supposed to do with this orc? -- Talenj

And a Mordant Deserter to round things off.  Not that he's round. -- Vaistinie
