                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It seems I'm on my way out the door, but I'll take this last occasion to tell
another cat story for Swirvin Irvin.  Not about our main cat, sometimes called
Midnight (but more often just Cat), but one of the neighborhood strays.  This one's a
black-and-white tuxedo cat, and a bit of a bully.  She (we think this is a she) tried
to hustle Midnight off the porch and hog the food dish.  Didn't work, but it tells
you something about her.  Well, now the bull is on the other paw!  We've got a family
of ground hogs under the brush pile, and they have been obsevered CHASING HER ACROSS
THE YARD!  Serves her right, *I* say.
     On a more relevant note, good try, Clara, but it's clear that my day has come.
Retirement looms!  I'm ready for it.

                                   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.  Later days, FANDILS, since BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, BLUVALLEY WARRIORS, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
ARLENE ROSS win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLOOD ORANGE beat 
ROBERT JOHNSON and ROBERT JOHNSON lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  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.  
ARDIVENT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like FANDILS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  CORBIN ROSS was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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.  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
