                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My time is very short.  Retirement awaits me.  It has been fun.  I hope Kordal,
that you have heard my message.  I have nothing new to tell you, but I trust that you
now know the way.  Now it is up to you to respond.  We should get together outside
the arena, once both of us are retired, which I can only imagine is coming soon for
you as well!

                                      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.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, since BASH 
BROS EVANGELIST took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see KURLO TEN DOSHAN win a fight and gain 16 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DRIVING A ROLLS beat LINDIS TYL SARRO and LINDIS TYL SARRO lost 
4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  IN YOUR FACE challenged KORDAL T'ROHN for DAL 
SHANG's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of 
life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as IN YOUR FACE stays top dog in the city.  The 
Blazing Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From DAL SHANG's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  SAND DANCERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BASH BROS EVANGELIST.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KORDAL T'ROHN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice ON THE CORNER challenging down 56 points to 
fight MARAN TEN PALAN, BASH BROS EVANGELIST doubtless has some rotten excuse for such 
an insult to honor.  Question now is, will DAL SHANG accept this sort of tacky 
behavior?  ON THE CORNER beating MARAN TEN PALAN.  The insult, the....yech!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in DAL SHANG to get a drink than The Blazing 
Unicorn!  Any suggestions?  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
