                             Notes from the arena champ.

Good try, Regulus, but fourth time's the charm.  I won't ramble this time, no promises 
for the future, because the boss and transcriber says she's got a tunnel and her hand 
hurts.  A likely story!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DAYLA KIV brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SHEWISH HORROR win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SHEWISH HORROR beat PELDAN DJIAN and PELDAN DJIAN lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like DAYLA KIV has some guts at least, BAIKAL S'KREN the Duelmaster was 
this turn's most-challenged warrior.  EREBUS IMPACT challenged DAYLA KIV's Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as EREBUS 
IMPACT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  ELON LI, a glorious 
12-20-2 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad SAND DANCERS.  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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Baikal s'Kren -- As expected, we matched up again.  Congrats on winning the title, 
sir.  I won't be gunning for you this turn, but a teammate may be (you didn't hear 
that from me). -- Regalus Fury

Traveling Tinker -- While you were here, you could've at least fixed the Main Square's 
big clock. -- Erebus Impact

Elon Li -- We've met so often I feel as if we're dating. -- Jakarta Fair 

Red Kogan -- We've met so often I feel as if we're... hey, hold on, never mind. -- 
Tane

Cringing Cutpurse -- No, don't cringe.  Stand in there and fight.  Fight, man! -- 
Shewish Horror

Red Kogan -- I must have been drinking Regalus's wine last turn.  My ad should have 
read: "...His dad was a pro chess player from Russia. ..." -- Medea 

Komar the Penniless -- Okay, then buy a clue with those pennies, then buy a weapon ;) 
-- Erebus 

Regulus Fury -- You're saying the feathered pen led you to ramble?  I prefer a steel 
nib, wooden stem pen, myself, but it's just a matter of taste. -- Baikal
P.S.  Wouldn't make any difference if you DID challenge.  Who else is there?

Jakarta Fair -- All good friends here, aren't we?  And you know what they say, with 
friends like that, who needs enemies.... -- Elon Li
P.S.  Then jam their funnels down on their heads and see how they like that!
P.P.S.  Funnel cakes like what?  I don't think I've ever had a funnel cake.  Do they 
use 'em to funnel frosting?

Tane -- I feel grumpy.  Can't think why, can you? -- Red Kogan
P.S.  By the way, what personals are you responding to?  I can't find anything in our 
recent archives that fits.

And one-one against the standbys.  Grrr.... -- Peldan Djian and Tiogan Crow

Erebus Impact -- You're out of my height range. -- Chandar Lo

Medea -- Well, everybody tends to think my name is an alias, because Kogan (aka Smith) 
is such a common name.  But hey, there are a lot of blacksmiths out there, you know. 
-- Red Kogan
