                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I won't say much.  Good to be here, having won the "best-in-show."  I just love
purple ribbons.
     Here is what the current "talented" Life Impact Team looked like at birth:
ST-9,11,12,17,20
CN-5,5,9,13,16
SZ-8,11,12,14,15
WT-5,10,14,15,17
WL-7,9,17,17,20
SP-6,10,10,12,15
DF-6,7,10,15,21
for an average 13-10-12-12-15-11-11 "ish" whatever, with one damage hose, two damage
blesses, one ambi, one blessed defense, and one blessed endurance.
     Whatever.
          4-H, Duelmaster I

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SNOWBOUND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DANGER DANGER, since 
THE MYRMIDONS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  THE MYRMIDONS 
turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see MATH win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MATH beat MOLDAR NAY 
and MOLDAR NAY lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  4-H challenged NASTY NES 
for SNOWBOUND's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the 
spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as 4-H stays top dog in the city.  The 
Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From SNOWBOUND's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
SNOWBOUND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DANGER DANGER the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was LIFE IMPACTS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, NASTY NES was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to THRESHPACK 
of PUBLIC ENEMY for challenging up by 23 to PURPLE ACE.  THRESHPACK lost to get 80 
points of recognition.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in SNOWBOUND to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

As it is, not so much. -- Shobart Teegue

Ah, Gobart's Embezzling Scribe.  He should stick to the account books, because in the
