                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am at lost for words.  I already played my piece.  For ME to have 4 DM Titles
after 15 turns is just plain awesome!  I wish I were really THAT good, but I am not
planning on giving up those wins anytime soon!
     Get me graduated and out of here, Coach.  Can I opt out early for The Pros?
                  Accordion DMIV

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TELORINTHE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PANTHEON, since SUDDENLY, 
THE VAN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see SANGER win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, SANGER beat CRACKER JACKS and CRACKER JACKS lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TELORINTHE may be getting bland, as 
ACCORDION stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
TELORINTHE, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SUDDENLY, THE VAN the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was OLDIES.  Ha ha ha ha!  
MELANIE OBERN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have CONTRACT BRIDGE in a challenge, going 
down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought CONTRACT BRIDGE showed great 
skill and promise when it bested MELANIE OBERN.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TELORINTHE's 
morgue.  More variety.  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 TELORINTHE to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  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

Sanger -- Well, that kept you from challenging or fighting Accordion, who can't fight
his way out of a cardboard box. -- Cracker Jacks (Who lives in a cardboard box.)

Melanie Obern -- Uh, I wasn't in that fight, was I?  I DID challenge, and rather
worthlessly, it seems. -- Custodian (Thinking that he deserves to clean the toilets.)

Berthold -- Well, I think I was lucky.  No "Pop" for me.  Give me a good old
fashioned polka. -- Accordion (Picking Beer Barrel Polka for the moment.)

Ra -- You finnessed the heck out of me, didn't you? -- Contract Bridge (Down two.)

Eric -- I held on.  Somehow.  Perhaps it is payback for the good deeds? -- Life Scout
(Counting his blessings....)

Well, Oldies, a 3-2 is better, but we need to win a lot, lot more for The Gipper! --
Coach, Oldies

Accordion -- You like luck, huh?  Good, you can have MINE. -- Orrie Pollas

Cracker Jacks -- That's okay, I've got a nut cracker. -- Moris Nahl

Custodian -- Yes. -- Rosana Sabel

Custodian -- I never sweep if I can possibly avoid it.  Who'd want to?  There are
lots more interesting things to do. -- Melanie Obern

Sven -- I went into that fight with an edge, and I used it.  Great.  You Van have it
coming.  Nothing but troublemakers. -- Moris Nahr
P.S.  Okay, maybe in the past, the way past, you had your good times in the world,
but now you're just coasting on your rep, and you throw your weight around too much.

Anubis -- The scholars tell me I was lucky to get away from you alive.  I'll drink to
that! -- Sam Tall

Ahti -- What I find unbelievable is that I lasted three minutes against you. --
Rosana Sabel

Thoth -- Ah... does this mean there's nowhere for me to go but up? -- Petro Salm
