                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All Hail Rocanis, greatest arena in all the land!  A second title defense, oh
yeah!  Thank you Mr. Hooter, always a pleasure.

                     Hal'igge Joyroc

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ROCANIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, MIDDLE WAY 20, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BAM! win a fight and gain 27 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BAM! beat RATHNOK MULROOT and RATHNOK MULROOT lost 22 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may 
be getting bland, as HAL'IGGE JOYROC stays top dog in the city.  Mylar's, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ROCANIS' 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  GET was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like INCONSISTENT FURY avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  BACK's 13-12-0 has earned him the 
Dark Arena.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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
