                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Where have all the teams gone?  We're down to four.  The things I do to get to
the top.  Have to cut down too many trees for chips.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of LIN 
TIRIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as CHIP-WOOD stays top dog in the city.  The Lost 
Hope Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From LIN TIRIAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  TREE PEOPLE 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 PROJECT:  MAYHEM.  Ha ha ha ha!  Now here's 
guts and stupidity all rolled into one, STRIKE ONE challenged up 31 to take on IRLON 
of SAND DANCERS.  And, oof!  STRIKE ONE saw stars around hers helmet, after losing 
the fight, and disappointing the crowds, I might add.  I guess I can give a little 
credit to TYLER DURDEN of PROJECT:  MAYHEM for challenging up by 18 to APPLE-TREE.  
TYLER DURDEN won to get 99 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Consider AMANDA gone, and THE FELLOWSHIP unfeeling, 
letting the bloodfeud for hers death go unrevenged.  We're all going to die in the 
end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in LIN TIRIAN to get a drink than The Lost Hope 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  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
