                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A fine try, Yumalesca, but I was not seeking the death blow, eagerly or
otherwise.  I was simply trying to pound some skills into your head.
     I have spoken of cabbages at some length here in Stormcrowe, but it appears that
it is now time for me to go to the Isle and discourse on kings.  Change is welcome, I
suppose, but I had barely gotten into my stride here.

                                       Walrus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, STORMCROWE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CALLOUS COURTNEY win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CALLOUS 
COURTNEY beat GELIDNIA HALE and GELIDNIA HALE lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, STORMCROWE may be getting bland, as 
WALRUS 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.  
DARQUE FORCES, 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 STREET WALKERS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

2l82hit -- Does that make me 2legit2quit (NOT)!!  Unlike you, my name doesn't seem to
suite me so far. -- Slambo

Ghost of Rikku -- I may be callous, I'm just not accurate.  I was aiming for your
leg. -- Callous Courtney

Stormwind -- Veal???  Well this tortured baby cow now owns 2 wins against fighter who
blows. -- Mr. Beefy

Master Darque -- Thanks for the welcome, sorry about Rikku.  I hope you're gentle
with the bloodfued.  FYI, Josie is sitting out until after the tourney, then I'll be
running a full team. -- Roadkill

Jorja -- I want you to participate and not deactivate in the forthcoming SS4.  If
not, I'm going to organize multi-arena, simultaneous TOGS-esque type contests. -- MD

     I think this counts as a dire threat... to the editor.  Green Eyes might like it
     if you get a lot of participation, though.

The Kung-Fu Master is inadequate.  He only taught me one skill. -- Lady Winter

Oh, he isn't so bad.  He taught *me* three skills. -- Dan Mack Gru

That Captured Orc is a mean one! -- Gelidnia Hale

Mr Beefy -- You're too hefty for me to blow you away. -- Stormwind

Payne -- A "gru" is a member of the Gru family.  Or if you go back far enough (maybe
ten or fifteen years) Mac Gru is the son of Gru.  That's me.  Dan, son of Gru. -- Dan
Mac Gru

Yumalesca -- Line-cutting!  I can barely comprehend the darqueness of such behavior!
-- Walrus
P.S.  If you come to Crysalis, I will activate there so we can discuss this.
