                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was number eight.  Eight Duelmaster titles.  That was also political point
number 58.  Fifty-eight.  That was another parry skill.  I am already quite advanced
there.  That was NO announcement of Lord Protectorship nor The Isle.  Pshaw!  Pshaw,
I say!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SNOWBOUND?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ROLAN win a fight and gain 9 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SYNERGY beat SMAUG 
and SMAUG lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  4-H challenged LADIRO MAELS 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SNOWBOUND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE MYRMIDONS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like LIFE IMPACTS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  HEART OF GLASS 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.  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?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of SNOWBOUND.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
