                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oft times it has been said, a penny saved is a penny earned.  But have you ever 
heard it said, a penny spent is a penny unearned?  I thought not.  Such is the 
slippery slope of the mind and its quotable quotes, but no slope is more slippery than 
the slope that is Black Ice. 
     The point of this exercise was to use the word "oft" in a sentence.  I kinda like 
the word, "oft." 

                                          -- Black Ice, Champion of Jade Mountain 
                                             (Duelmaster, if you will) 

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FULL FORCE win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SHIZARAN BLACKHEART beat LADY CHAO and LADY CHAO lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BARRELS takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's 
trash dumps?   
     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?  CRITICALS 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 SWORD FOR HIRE.  
Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, HAN KI was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! 
So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

To those we defeated last turn, better luck this turn. To those we lost to last turn, 
it was the shoes. They gave us bad shoes. -- Team Sword for Hire

Again probably short personals.  There just seems to be so much else to do.  At least 
I did remember these, although at the last moment....

Jade Ghost -- No WAY are you ghostly enough.  Our blows should pass right THROUGH each 
other with drawing a drop of blood or feeling like more than a bit of a breeze.  I 
mean, I've been reading UP on ghosts, you know?  And that's the way it's supposed to 
be. -- Rumbler
P.S.  Okay, I asked a teammate to read up on ghosts--Lady Chao--and then explain it to 
me.

Wow, Shizaran Blackheart really IS black hearted.  Standbys are supposed to LOSE. -- 
Han Ki

Renaissance -- Shouldn't you be wearing more lace? -- Lady Chao
P.S.  And velvet.

Cursed Scroll -- I kind of expected that.  Because of the curse. -- Hotdog

Gleaming Blade -- That thing BLINDED me.  It shouldn't be allowed, at least not on 
sunny days. -- Hai Tai

Jade Ghost -- Are you supposed to be?  I thought men went more for "handsome." -- Lady 
Chao
