                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Chardinee?  That's what this fool amounts to.  No way will I be his "secret
admirer."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAL SHANG?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch MEDAL OF HONOR J8's 
heads swell from their 4-1-1 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ABRA CADAVER win a fight and 
gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OBLIVION beat DUCK CUTLETS and DUCK CUTLETS lost 
15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
DOOMSDAY DEVICE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAL SHANG's 
morgue.  More variety.  Ya gotta go sometime, and DEJA DUCK's time was this time.  
Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Doomed Duck -- If it's your doom to win, huh, I wouldn't mind it. -- Grizolpop
P.S.  Ah, but I see that you didn't win after all, your fans were falling silent in
that last line.  Ah well, it was a good try.

Flightless Duck -- Then you must be one heck of a runner, to keep up with the flock
at this season. -- Sorrelishe

DA2 -- Seems like your manager doesn't have a lot of confidence in you.  That's
tough. -- Luisenya

DA1 -- Yeah, what Luia said. -- Chaego Sarildan
P.S.  And it looks to us like you were supposed to do the night fights, or else get
killed and open a road to bloodfeud.  Really tough.

We salute the local gladiators who attended the tourney. -- Jorja and the Sand
Dancers
P.S.  But we expected better of Rope Man.  What happened?
