                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Of course I am Duelmaster.  Make that 23.  Twenty-three DM Titles.  I think it
is time to graduate to Lord Protectorship.  Are you listening, Commission?
     4-H, DMXXIII

                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HEART OF GLASS win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CANTEX beat OWN GOAL and OWN GOAL lost 6 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.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, SNOWBOUND?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  THE 
MYRMIDONS, 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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SNOWBOUND's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Thor -- Thanks for the challenge.  I needed the win.  You're the best! -- Saxophone

Heart Of Glass -- That went off just like planned.  I love it when a plan comes to
fruition. -- Circle K

Necroshade -- I am glad you were dancing on me rather than dancing on my grave. --
Cantex

Shobart Teegue -- Thanks for the help betting one more win. -- 4-H

Kung-Fu Master -- Perhaps you'd better go back into training.  I know this stuff far
better than you. -- Quality

Ya done gud, Lifers!  Yup. -- Smitty

Liam -- Smitty asked me to report that he had spoken to Oz The All Discouraged and
that Oz had said that Master Darque and Alliance were indeed on top in Turf War VIII
and looking to blow out the competition with only one final round to go in North
Fork. -- The Life Impacts Publicist

Lashing Lily -- If Liam doesn't treat you well, The Flower Shoppe in Fratsfa is
always looking for a few good gals.  I run a quality establishment. -- Lady Fern
(checking in while visiting Smitty and The Life Impacts)

Newlin -- Well, it was over in 29 some years back. -- Necroshade

Cantex -- You, sir, are a monster on the sands.  -- necroshade

Jorja -- O come now, everyone like Yorkshire pudding and Yorkshire ham. -- Liam

monkey Bread -- Well I go to the DA, jees, thanks a lot. -- Necroflame

Blood mary -- I have a sister with the same name, but she's much nicer to me. --
Necrostorm

y Man -- City loses to day and my team is thinking of sacking me like they did poor
mancini. -- Liam

Liam -- Some days, I really, really miss Lin Tirian.  Well, actually, a little place
up the River of Fires from Lin Tirian, but it was in the city that I trained as a
gladiator and graduated.  These Alastarians just seem so... uncivilized! -- Jorja

Own Goal -- Well, damn.  My goal was to win, and you grabbed it. -- Newlin Ohm

4-H -- You again.  Graduate already! -- Shobart Teegue

Smaug -- You're small, but you don't LOOK like an ant or something.  Maybe... a
horned toad? -- Garuth Holm

Zurisday -- Ouch. -- Jenna Kuul

Circle K -- That is what happens when you get on the ice with your superior! --
Missing Teeth

Rolan -- Good thing the fight ended.  2 minutes on the ice is a long time! -- Missing
Teeth

Newlin Ohm -- Are you in any way related to the famous George Simon Ohm? -- Own Goal

Spectra -- I'm in trouble.  There is a movement afoot to get me fired. -- Blind Ref
