                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My ministry goes elsewhere and I leave this corner in Dal Shang to whomever
Wants to occupy it.  Assur is quite pleased with my performance in the arena, but
that isn'tnearly as important to me.  I am just happy to have been able to spread the
good news for the better part of the last year.  Farewell, all!

-- On the Corner

****
Notes from Assur
What does it take for a couple of bashers to go a combined 39-2 here in Dal Shang?
In Your Face: 12(1)-6-10-15-17-16-9 B Good/Norm  skills: 19/14/26/20/7/22
faves:  MO/LO ML Decise tactic
On the Corner: 11(1)-8-11-17-17-6-15 B Norm/Good  skills: 22/9/31/11/14/25
faves: VH/VL WF

On the Corner is my first undefeated graduate.  <something missing?>  do it, but I am
more than pleased with the results.  Neither of them entered a tournament.  Both head
to retirement, but On the Corner will not be forgotten (at least not by me).

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of DAL 
SHANG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see 15 MINSOF BLISS win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SWEET ANELLA beat LORAND TEN SORN and LORAND TEN SORN lost 13 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, ON THE CORNER 
has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as KURLO TEN DOSHAN 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, DAL SHANG?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BASH 
BROS EVANGELIST, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like SCRABBLE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  MARAN TEN PALAN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAL SHANG's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, THE INQUISITION, ain't it past due for sending LOWER 
G.I. Dark Arena?  What took ol' '10-2-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  And sending 
LOWER G.I. to the Dark Arena was supposed to be one of your better ideas, THE 
INQUISITION?  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

I'm glad it worked out for the best and we both head to immortality together! -- In
Your Face

corner when no one else was around! -- On the Corner

Assur -- Why wait on pins and needles?  Tell your supplier to deliver them NOW or
you'll get 'em somewhere else. -- Jorja
P.S.  And while we're thinking of On the Corner, congratulations.

In Your Face -- And we go out as we have gone on for so long, locked in combat.  You
reckon we can get a lunch on the way? -- Kordal t'Rohn

On the Corner -- Ah!  New corner for you, but it seems you won't be staying long. --
Maran ten Palan

Driving a Rolls -- You can't park it THERE. -- Lindis tyl Sarro

Masculine Odor -- You can tell yourself that.  Soap would help. -- Kurlo ten Doshan
