                             Notes from the arena champ.

Death really does suck but it is really nice being the Duelmaster.  All the ladies
and all the free ale.  I don't like those Mangy Mongols so I will be avoiding them.
Until next time.

                        Long Live the Mun!

                         Death Sucks

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ERINIKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SALINDA RENN win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROS QUIN 
beat BEER KHAN and BEER KHAN lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may be getting bland, as DEATH SUCKS stays top 
dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think 
some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLACKMAIL 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 MONGOL HORDE.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROS QUIN was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Death Sucks -- I believe you, but I would prefer not to verify it by experience.  You
know how it is.  Let someone ELSE die. -- Ros Quin

Beer Khan -- Well, drat, I was hoping you would sit on the fence out back and let me
use you for target practice.  Instead, you want to do it the other way around!
Horrors.  I suppose that was a good fight, if you weren't me. -- Limbdropper

Pinehurst -- I may not be a Bad Apple, but I know what to do with a pine. -- Lilas
Keeler

Stupid dwarf! -- Malus S'Prout

Extortion -- Must you? -- Salinda Renn

Chandler -- I choose to be confused by the question of "chandler the job, Chandler
the person, Chandler the place."  I could, of course, just say, "Chandler the
gladiator, ouch."  But that seems so ORDINARY. -- Ultor Tak

Brandywine -- Wow, strong stuff! -- Panama Oats
