                             Notes from the arena champ.

    M. Chardinee.  I suppose I should have expected this, the way gladiators have
been trampling each other in their eagerness not to show up here.
    My salute to M. Golodor Chardinee, always there when you need him.

                                    Hitch Hiker

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail AMEN-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The UN guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, DERWEAR fought 
TOM-TOM TORA and gained 21 points and contributed to UN's 4-0-0.  TOM-TOM TORA has 
lost to DERWEAR, falling 17 points, while helping make WAYFARERS a 4-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HITCH HIKER remains AMEN-TEI's 
top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  
Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in AMEN-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Oh... I didn't expect this.  The Visiting Orc brought a "hostess gift."  I grant you
that the concept of "hostess gift" doesn't usually go with "a fresh quarter of some
unidentified large quadruped," but it's the thought that counts, isn't it?  And this
is, um, thoughtful. -- Roadblock
P.S.  Unless, of course, the meat turns out to be a quarter from the arenamaster's
favorite horse, or something equally awkward.  Not that it looks like a horse, but...
I don't know what it DOES look like.

The Happy Peasant is scary.  Not his fighting--he couldn't fight his way out of wet

tissue-paper.  But the way he keeps grinning the whole time.  He doesn't even seem to
CARE when he gets hacked up, just gets up and keeps coming.  THAT is scary.  I don't
like it. -- Bouncing Bea

I didn't mean to hit him quite so hard, but he was just so MADDENING.  All I wanted
to know was what kind of cult he was from.  I've never talked to an elven cultist,
you see, and I was just curious.  But he got really RUDE about it.  Snarking and
sneering.  I couldn't stand that. -- Avalanch Lily

Furtive Returns II -- Wow, a real opponent! -- Tom-Tom Tora
P.S.  I watched the other fights, and M. Chardinee was more impressive than you were.

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
