                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Swirvin' Irvin, good try but there are times when you should NOT swirv.  A bit
of bad judgment there.  Probably because you eat liver.  Our cats won't touch it.
Fish, that's what they like.  And one of them has a fondness for birds caught on the
wing.  Ha!  To see him coming across the yard, bird in mouth, walking that "jock
walk" that rolls the shoulders...!  That cat fancies himself a Mighty Hunter.  Of
course, he's young.  Give him another ten years and he will be lying around all the
time, too.

                                   Joubert Klee

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARDIVENT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MMMMBUHHH win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MMMMBUHHH beat 
ARLENE ROSS and ARLENE ROSS lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
ARDIVENT has some guts at least, JOUBERT KLEE the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  CLARA ROSE challenged ARDIVENT's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as 
JOUBERT KLEE stays top dog in the city.  The Seaside Manor, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARDIVENT's trash 
dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
BARDS, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was YOU DON'T SAY!.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ARDIVENT 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.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens
