You Blade and Blood people are WORTHLESS. AGAIN I was stuck with the title and the column. Xander Haxan, what were you THINKING? Tillise Ulam SPY REPORT If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of JURINE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too. Later days, BLADE AND BLOOD, since MIDDLE WAY 16 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LADY THORNE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly. Tsk, tsk, ROEKFORT SIMS beat MIKAI ABADOS and MIKAI ABADOS lost 13 points. You're breakin' my heart. And if variety is the spice of life, JURINE may be getting bland, as TILLISE ULAM stays top dog in the city. The Warty Toad, humph! I've tasted better ale at mortuaries. Where do they get this stuff? From JURINE's trash dumps? Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys. Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, PARLEN QUIR was this turn's most challenged warrior. Watch that ego swell, sports fans. Death and Taxes. The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience. Let's see if anyone's dead or dying. Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see VERELLE WIST and MIDDLE WAY 16 at The Warty Toad tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over CIRSIUM VULGARE. Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons? What does the JURINE 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.

Yeah, that's it. My weapon failed. -- Xander Haxan Parlen Quir -- You've got to learn how to finish a fight. You should have won that one. -- Mikai Abados Rockfort Sims -- I want another shot at Tillise Ulam. -- Sibi El Keer Abetta Belanji -- A common thistle?! I think not !!! -- Cirsium Vulgare Listen, I am indignant to be here in this foul city! A minor bureaucrat can't handle one of my pleasure slaves, and I get punished for it. They take away my House of Pleasure and my freedom! Ah, they tell me if I graduate, I'll get back my house and my freedom. So don't anybody get in my way! -- Lady Thorne Mikai Abados -- Listen, you guys have got it backwards! You're supposed to win TITLE fights and let us win the rest. -- Parlen Quir Sibi el Keer -- Ah, good one! For that, allow me to buy you dinner, maybe some dancing afterward? -- Roekfort Sims P.S. And if you think the invitation is on the cheesy side, well, I'm like that, as my name should tell you. Ambitious Guard? I lost to the Ambitious Guard? The shame! -- Verelle Wist Cirsium Vulgare -- You darned common thistle! -- Ghost of Abetta Belanji P.S. Let this be a lesson to you all: low con will get you killed. 9 July 2007 I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately. If there are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good. So if you send me a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I have not gotten it (yet). If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com. If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos. We are working on this problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta P.S.
