                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I salute the Veteran Mercenary for perseverance in many forms, but he does not
belong in the arena.  His skills are of a different type.

                                    Bouncing Bea

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
AMEN-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE SUN CULT, since 
WAYFARERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see HITCH HIKER win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, FURTIVE RETURNS II beat AVALANCH LILY and AVALANCH LILY lost 1 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SABURO 
SAKAI takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, AMEN-TEI?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  AMEN-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
WAYFARERS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
UN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for AMEN-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
