                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If I thought it would do any good, I'd demand a recount.  My intention was only
to knock Mralissa Loon off the throne, not out of the Challenger Champion class.  But
the commission is stingy here in Erinika and we can tell the story as well as anyone.
Here I sit with 20 wins and am still struggling to get PPs.  I need to win this turn
to gain immortality, otherwise it will take me still longer to achieve that coveted
award.
     We'll see who the commission puts me up against.  I know that Crip may return
any time, so it would be best to get this graduation thing over and done with sooner
rather than later.  And my teammate says that there is a youngster that is hungry and
has no respect for his elders coming up the ranks, too.  And before I say good night,
I leave you with this wisdom.  Becoming the common use name for a product is a
blessing and a curse.  A blessing, because advertising costs go down.  A curse,
because your trademark is put in jeopardy!  Such is the case with my name.  If anyone
is interested in other names (including those that have lost their trademark), here
is a neat list:  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_generic_and_genericized_trademarks
              <address shortened in the interests of editorial sanity>
     Until next time (which I hope is the last time),

                                      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 ADAM win a fight and gain 28 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ADAM beat GRIFFON 
and GRIFFON lost 37 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as DUM BULL takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries. 
Where do they get this stuff?  From ERINIKA's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, BURIED TREASURE of FOUND IN THE SAND has added the final loss to his 
15-18-0.  Tee hee!  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ERINIKA to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  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

Adam -- You are not nice.  I do not like you. -- Buried Treasure

Buried Treasure -- Tsk.  Spoilsport!  Actually, Jorja confused you with a treasure
buried on Niatoli.  Ha.  She wasn't paying attention.  Serves her right. -- Mralissa
Loon

Frisbee -- As you see, I have done so.  You are correct, I do not need political
points.  I don't know what I do need, unless I've miscounted something. -- Mralissa
Loon
P.S.  Ah!  I looked back, and I *think* I only have fifteen political points.  But
maybe not.  Maybe it's jealousy and prejudice on the part of the Commission clerks.
That has happened before.

Time -- Good place to begin.  Without time, there can be no concept of a beginning,
after all. -- Raemond Purr

Orca -- Like I'm going to try conclusions with a killer whale?  I don't think so! --
