                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dammit, it was MY turn to win, Naked Lunch!  I know, I've got the title, but I'm
not SATISFIED with that, okay?  I should've won.  Heck, I'm really going to miss
you....

                                      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 VERA TEAGUE win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
MONSTER MASH beat SILVER SLIM and SILVER SLIM lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as STEAMED MUSCLES 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, LIN TIRIAN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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?   
     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.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide
