                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I wasn't planning to GLOAT, Ben, but still, it was fairly won and I'm pleased
with it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VALAMANTIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DEATH MOB, since MIDDLE WAY 
10 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see JERANS LA'ROC win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, HOBBAN JEPP beat THE RUSSIAN and THE RUSSIAN lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, VALAMANTIS may be getting 
bland, as EVANDER GILL 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  DEATH MOB was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like THE 
BEARS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.   
     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.  And sending BEN to the Dark Arena was 
supposed to be one of your better ideas, THE BEARS?  Not that I'll be buying the 
drinks, but I'll be glad to see EVANDER GILL and MIDDLE WAY 10 at The Aradi Alyia 
tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over ANGRY DECKHAND.  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the VALAMANTIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Captain Scourge -- I've been taking anti-scourge lessons.  Also, unless you have a

action. -- Isombard Korl

Ah, the Mordant Deserter.  A wuss, but a reliable one. -- Elen Gorvan

I would have relished it and nurtured it.  Darn. -- Jerans La'Roc
