                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, damn, this is the pits!  We were RETIRED, dammit.  And then we got hauled
here, and--  Wait a minute!  I'm a golem?  When did I become a golem?  I'm pretty
clear that I was not one before.  Somebody can't just come along and wave a hand and
make me a golem, can they?

                                    Torans Ulrik

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DRAGONHEAD needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, MIDDLE WAY 9 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by LHC!  Way to go LHC!  
MVP award for ROOT?  KIWI CONNECTION 7's proud of him after beating ROMOR SAITH and 
getting 17 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ROMOR SAITH got smashed by ROOT, 
and lost 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  TORANS ULRIK stopped 
VETERAN MERCENARY dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DRAGONHEAD ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  NAEFAN ORDH really fought hard against FOX.  That'll teach 
KIWI CONNECTION 7 not to go and kill any of MIDDLE WAY 9's guys again, huh!  Hey you 
guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have 
someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Well, Torans had one thing right (surprise!), it's been YEARS since we retired.  Five

years, at least, what business does anybody have bringing us back after that long?  I
had a restaurant in a little town on the Raltuman coast, and I LIKED it there.  Damn.
-- Louie Murh

What the heck, being back on the sands isn't all that bad.  I was getting bored. --
Romor Saith

Bayly -- Well, now, what's a fine young woman like you doing in a place like this? --
Naefan Ordh

Fox -- I suppose I could say, "at least I got killed by a beautiful woman," but a)
you aren't a woman, you're a golem, and b) I didn't want to be killed.  Bummer. --
