                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All hail Rocanis greatest arena in the land.  Best of luck to all this cycle,
less it's vs the Inconsistent Fury.

                     Linkin

                                      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 HIKA SUGAR win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HIKA SUGAR 
beat MERVIN OLDES and MERVIN OLDES lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as LINKIN LOGGER stays 
top dog in the city.  The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ROCANIS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ROCANIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Mervin -- A fine try maybe this round? -- Linkin

Snake Bite -- That was a close one.  I'll be more careful next time. -- Frankie

Backlash -- Ahh the 1st loss is always the hardest--great run getting to 9 and 0.
Cya on the sands. -- P. Charly

A tip for you all:  You notice how I'm popular with the fans, even though I lose more
than I win?  It's the little song-and-dance number I do right before the fight
starts. -- Gaston Ipps

Jim Dasher -- Well, THAT was embarrassing.  I guess I've got to hope you have hidden
tourney fights. -- Gerhart Ervin

Linkin Logger -- Yeah, and you really whapped me with your log, too. -- Mervin Oldes

Kaspar -- You'll never manage to wow the fans like *I* do unless you take singing
lessons. -- Gaston Ipps

Rattler.  Bah.  Snakes.  They're everywhere.  We need an owl in here.  Or a mongoose.
-- Ferria Hough

Down with looters! -- Denna Feyl
P.S.  Can I keep the loot he dropped?
