     Hail to all warriors of the Illis arena!  We come to you from afar seeking a new
home.  We're known as the "Patch Works" stable.  Our names have been changed to avoid
the W.E.B. (Warrior Elimination Bureau).  Let me introduce to you our warriors.
First, we have Baby Blanket, next there is Washout.  Now a real see-through is Screen
Door.  Next, we've got a true drip in Leaky Roof, and finally, Broken Pane.  These
are the warriors under my management.  I am Sir Black Guard, manager of the stable
Patch Works.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ILLIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see LEAKY ROOF win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
TITUS PULLO beat SYLVESTER and SYLVESTER lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, as GISBORNE stays 
top dog in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ILLIS' 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 ILLIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  It's about time BUXTON got beat for picking on warriors like 
STINGAREE.  Bravo, ISLANDERS.  See you at The Dripping Blade.  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 ILLIS 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
