                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To Pelis the Old, my salute and thanks for the win and the skills.  At this
rate, unworthy though I am, I *will* graduate.  Barring accidents.  But things
actually look a little hopeful for the year ahead.

                                     Kirssarina

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DOLBY KLEE win a fight and gain 1 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MAKAR TEL 
SORIAN beat MORO TEN ZORA and MORO TEN ZORA lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting bland, as 
KIRSSARINA stays top dog in the city.  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, DAYLA KIV?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

General Mills -- Gods, can't you make a cereal without all that sugar and beeaichtee
and stuff in it?  It gets me so jazzed up that I can't sit still for days!  Although
the skills were good to see.  My thanks for those. -- Moro ten Zora

Huh, my brother loses to a real warrior and gets five skills and two ratings, I
defeat a standby and get a mere three skills.  Life is not fair!  I'm a much nicer
person than he is. -- Moko ten Zora

Oh, well, who needs skills?  A win will do. -- Kolban ten Tahl
P.S.  I grant you, skills would have been very HANDY.

Fase -- Damn.  I lost.  Why am I not surprised?  It bugs me when I'm going along,
working through a LONG first minute, and then in the second minute, right in the
BEGINNING of a second minute, the other guy turns the fight around and wins.  It's
enough to drive me to drink. -- Dolby Klee
