                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This place is feeling empty all at once.  Must be that everyone, nearly
everyone, is timed for the tourney.
     A worthy effort, Frisbee.  I always liked frisbees, so did my dog--which was
hard on the frisbees!  She gripped 'em FIRMLY.  Be glad I'm not that way.

                                   Mralissa Loon

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ERINIKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY 18, since 
BASH BROS SUITCASE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep 
the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SUPER STARS, whose 
0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 12th.  Ha!  THE FLYING FISHES turned their 
2-3-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ADAM 
win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ORCA beat HOLES and HOLES lost 3 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may 
be getting bland, as MRALISSA LOON stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph! 
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ERINIKA's 
trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
MIDDLE WAY 18, 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 who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FOUND IN THE SAND.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  TALITHA SEALE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Gee, THE FLYING FISHES, ain't it past due 
for sending STINGRAY Dark Arena?  What took ol' '8-11-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha 
ha!  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it 
came.  EVE's 12-10-0 has earned her the Dark Arena.  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.  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
