                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well I'm the last one who expected to be DM.  It truly is fun though.  The perks
are amazing.  I mean the room they have for me now is much better than the shack TGG
keeps us in.  I plan to stay here until I graduate so fair warning to all
challengers.  Oh, got to go, my wench just arrived to give me a massage.  Hey it's
good to be the king.

King Corey

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see STEEL SPAR win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STEEL SPAR 
beat VAISTINIE and VAISTINIE lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as KING COREY stays top 
dog in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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?   
     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!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Eldarran -- That wasn't a "brotherly" approach you made, you wretched Karnhorn. --
Vaistinie
P.S.  Nor sisterly, either.

King Corey -- Over to you. -- Bitt Betro

Xargoth -- What a temper you have! -- Kirjenz

Felstava -- A woman shouldn't be so pushy. -- Senjiro

Princess Emily II -- They tell me--without proof, I admit--that losing the first
fight is good.  The claim is that it leaves you "nowhere to go but up." -- Lirvenz

Godric -- If you can figure out how to break what I'm told is an "iron-clad"
contract, I'd consider it. -- Vaistinie
