                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not sure what happened to Red Red Wine's final departure note, but for those who
care, he left us with 15-9-9-17-15-10-9 numbers and AdEx ratings in Attack, Decise
and Init.  The Commission says he liked the Great Axe, with a Moderate/Low rythm, and
learns decise.  We had him noted as +1 in Attack, and hosed some unknown amount in
Defence.  What more can you say about a basher, but we think the next basher on our
roster will be a little better.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ILLIS games.  IRISH FLAG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested BEATIE and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, IRISH FLAG put down BEATIE, 
causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Although THOSE I HURT 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious FLAMING 
MOE.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ILLIS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  ILLIS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is BASHAHOLICS ANON, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of HANGOVERS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
FISHHOOK.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ILLIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Flaming Moe -- Is this a permanent matchup?  I'm going to regress to want to hurt if
so. -- Those I Hurt

Long Island -- Thanks for the encouragement.  Always nice to put up a good showing.
-- There is a God

Margarita -- I don't need AA.  That isn't my problem. -- Fearless Inventory

Two-three and a death.  It's hard to believe that Boomer, clutz though he was, got
killed by a STANDBY.  A TOTAL PARRY standby.  That's just so WRONG. -- Pearl
P.S.  Our wins, of course, were over standbys TOO, but they were WINS.

Beatie -- I was never one for doing battle with windmills. -- Fishhook
