                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this appears to be the Title No One Can Hold for Long.  Until someone
comes along who can, of course.  Good try, Kitten, but not quite good enough.

                                     Dilila Frann

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BALZEC win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BALZEC beat FREM 
HARID and FREM HARID lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as PURPLE KITTEN takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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.  And we have RIA ROSEDANCER in a challenge, going down 
11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought RIA ROSEDANCER showed great skill 
and promise when she won victory over ABELINDA CHASE.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next 
guy, but hey THEM, whyja send BOP to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ROCANIS 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
