                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a good effort, Tiki, but I really needed to get out of here.  Perhaps
you'll be following soon.  Graduation details on request.

                                   Leelayla Norin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, INCONSISTENT FURY, since 
MIDDLE WAY 20 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  MEN OF STEEL 
turned their 3-1-1 turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see PANCAKES win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PLOP! beat GERHART 
ERVIN and GERHART ERVIN lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as LEELAYLA NORIN 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  INCONSISTENT FURY was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THEM.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, GERHART ERVIN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ROCANIS to get a drink than The Wanton 
Troll!  Any suggestions?  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
