                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Veteran Mercenary made it easy.  Ha!  Again.

                                     Messalida

                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DEVONSHIRE win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VENEMOUS CONCUBINE beat SHANA TWO-KNIVES and SHANA TWO-KNIVES lost 17 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting 
bland, as MESSALIDA 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, LIN TIRIAN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  KIWI CONNECTION was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like IRON MEN avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  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?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
LIN TIRIAN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

I don't LIKE dwarfs, see?  They freak me out. -- Halgar Snagtooth

The Kung-Fu Master knows when not to push his luck. -- Red Coulter

Devonshire -- I thought you were supposed to be some kind of cream.  Instead, you're
a cream-PUFF. -- Shana Two-Knives

     Creampuffs are good.

I don't see why Messy's so taken with the Veteran Mercenary.  He's pushy. --
