                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We had a seriously embarrassing turn!  Two-three against standbys, and one of
the losses was mine against the Kung-Fu Master.  I offered him a chance to speak
here, but he said he had "other things to do."  I shudder to think what.  He's
creepy!

                                     Hitch Hiker

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail AMEN-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, TOM-TOM TORA fought FURTIVE RETURNS II and gained 13 points 
and contributed to WAYFARERS' 5-0-0.  Defending his title for another turn, HITCH 
HIKER kept AMEN-TEI's warrior, M. CHARDINEE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     I like this place, AMEN-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in AMEN-TEI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
