                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm sorry to have demolished a Circle K, I do like those stores.  So handy when
you get the blind munchies at three in the morning.  But I'm not sorry I'm
graduating, this life wears after a while.  Although I suppose it would be honest to
admit that after my FIRST fight, I was looking for the exit!  But short of dying....
So here I am and here I go.  I think I might try settling in this area, maybe open an
eatery.  I'll give gladiators a discount.

Moris Nahr

P.S.  Graduation details available, if you really want to know.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TELORINTHE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CIRCLE K win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LILLIPUTAIN LEVI 
beat PETRO SALM and PETRO SALM lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, TELORINTHE may be getting bland, as MORIS NAHR 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, TELORINTHE?   
     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.  OLLIS HEROES 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!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, SAM TALL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TELORINTHE's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, ROSANA 
SABEL of MIDDLE WAY 21 has added the final loss to hers 6-12-0.  Tee hee!  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 TELORINTHE to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  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.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

In all The Consortium days, we have to admit that Contract Bridge of Oldies was the
FIRST (and only) to have achieved:
     overall popularity leader
     most popular warrior list (1)
     least popular fighter list (10)
It must be the good coaching. -- Coach

Kudos to new Lord Protector Moris Nahr of Middle Way 21.  A great and well-deserved
achievement. -- Coach and The Oldies

I wonder why the BOBbies (Brotherhood of the Blade) diluted their membership?
Managerr must need the membership fees? -- Coach

Puny Orc Peloton guys -- Uh, I hate to point this out, but, perhaps you guys should
pedal a little harder--or faster, or longer, or all the above?  Spanish Beef loses to
a near rookie, Sport?  Big Bad Basso, with overwhelming style advantage loses to a
mere Custodian?  I am sure you are better trained than that.  Your coach should be
"all over you guys"! -- Coach (offering friendly and free advice)

Spanish Beef -- What?  I won?  You're not taking enough steroids? -- Sport

Melanie Obern -- I love it when a good bid and great playing add up to game.  I do.
-- Contract Bridge

Big Bad Basso -- I will take that win and be mighty, mighty happy.  Ecstatic, really.
-- Custodian (who recently picked up a job maintaining racing bikes)

M. Chardinee -- Thanks for being there.  It was one of the easiest merit badges I
have ever earned. -- Life Scout (embarrassed that he will never make eagle)

Moris -- I had a title fight?  Wow!  I do not think I am ready for something like
that, but that was rather obvious, wasn't it?  Kudos and good luck to you, Lord
Protector and Duelmaster. -- Circle K

Slugbait -- Now don't go skipping next turn, just because... -- Coach (feeling pretty
good about the rivalry series at the moment)

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Coach (acting rather Consortium-like)

Sam Tall -- You are a bit more punchy then I expected.  I'll have to up my Roid
dosage before we fight again. -- Floyd

Rosana -- A bit closer then I expected.  You must be eating your veggies. -- Levi

Custodian -- You should know better then to leave lots of my blood all over the arena
floor.  Now you'll have to clean it up. -- Bad Bad Warrior

Sport -- Really no need to make sport of a tainted warrior such as myself or I'll
have a beef with your manager. -- Beef

Coach -- 0-2 for me this turn.  1-5 for you.  Looking at the rankings it looks like
I'm in for more beatdowns for quite a while. -- slugbait

Life Scout -- You know how it is with fans.  They're here to be entertained, and if
we pause to consider our next move, their attention, never a strong point, lapses,
and they get bored.  Remember, "Only a bore is bored!" -- Sam Tall

Roid Floyd -- I'd call that perfectly credible. -- Sam Tall

Lilliputain Levi -- Fowl!  A chicken flew across the arena and distracted me. --
Rosana Sabel

Contract Bridge -- I don't like you have a contract out on me! -- Melanie Obern

Dangerous Criminals, bah.  I eat 'em for breakfast. -- Petro Salm
P.S.  With toast.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
