                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's 22.  22 Titles.  22 Crowns.  48 arena fights.  A 45-3 record.  4 years!
I think I am tired.  I think I am deserving of a Lord Protectorship.
     I think The Commission sucks.  What kind of discrimination is going on here.
What a bunch of goose eggs live in that Tempe palace.  Go suck eggs!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SNOWBOUND?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch BASH BROS HOCKEY's 
heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see GARUTH HOLM win a fight and 
gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GARUTH HOLM beat SMAUG and SMAUG lost 13 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be 
getting bland, as 4-H 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  PUBLIC ENEMY, 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 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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SNOWBOUND's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the SNOWBOUND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Missing Teeth of Bash Bros Hockey, Assur's warrior extraordinaire, you out aimed me,
out whacked me, and just plain mishandled me.  I didn't like it!  Besides, you looked
silly standing there smiling with all those missing teeth, while I was bleeding
beaten in the arena mud.  You dirt bag! -- Circle K

Own Goal -- You surely didn't own anything.  Why, I scored at will. (Or I woulda if I
wanted to.) -- Cantex

Beleg Bloodaxe -- Your weapon sang in E a whole lot better than mine did.  Salute. --
Saxophone

Shoburt Teague -- I guess I have to say I expected that outcome.  Good try anyway. --
4-H, DMXXII

Moldar Nay -- You may have been the Lord Protector, but I was the winner.  Quality
counts. -- Quality

Y'all Lifers done gud, y'here?  Yup. -- Smitty

Jorja -- It was dirt cheat with a great view of Iceberg Acres.  It's better than the
tower I have over in North Fork, I should have named it the Citadel of Mosquitoes
with it being in the middle of the swamp and all, I must have had taste. -- Liam

Lara Penkatlan -- The contractor you sent me is spot on, though he did look at me
funny when I asked him to put in large maggot pools in the left underground chamber.
-- Liam

Master Faustus -- Thank you for answering my ad, no I am not a cleric but a
blackguard of Ahringol, that's why I need you to cast the spells on the land and
tower. -- -Liam

Jorja -- Hey I have days like that, when my own team is my worst nightmare, hope is
all I can say. -- Liam

Smitty -- Ask Oz the ever floating how TW is going, is Master Darque kicking butt? --
Liam

Dannegil Noble -- I see you. -- Liam

Lashing Lily -- Welcome to Snowbond, yeah, I know my place is not as nice as the
Flower Shoppe, but give it a few months and who knows. -- Liam

Quality -- Of course they were.  Would I offer untidy skills? -- Garuth Holm

Necroshade -- What? -- Newlin Ohm, having mildew of the memory

Liam -- To be expected.  None of those places out at Iceberg Acres are really GOOD.
And what's half flooded now will be an in-house ice house come winter. -- Jorja

Liam -- (puzzled look)  Why would I want to make Yorkshire Pudding?  I don't live in
Yorkshire. -- Jorja
P.S.  Yeah, my granddaughter likes duck eggs, too.

Quality -- Not much of a graduation gift, but with graduation, who needs a gift? --
Moldar Nay

4-H -- You always do that. -- Shobart Teegue

Zurisday -- Ha! -- Jenna Kuul

Rolan -- You know, I don't much like the way this turn is shaping up for us.  But at
least I'm not the only loser on the team. -- Garuth Holm
P.S.  Jorja seems to think I should say, "Welcome back."  Don't know why she thinks
*I* should be happy about it.

Spectra -- You aren't all enough to be the WHOLE of any spectrum.  Well, maybe the
short stuff up in the ultra-violent. -- Newlin Ohm

Cantex -- Lucky for you, unlucky for me.  I can't believe that pass went INTO my
goal. -- Own Goal

Circle K -- I may not be pretty, but I can certainly out skate the likes of you. --
Missing Teeth

Thor -- I haven't been in the league long enough to know how to deal with your dirty
tricks.  And clearly the calls at this level are not what I'm used to! -- Blind Ref
