                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I really am here for one reason.  I know what some of you think.  It's for the
glory.  The chance to become a Lord Protector.  Maybe just because I like to fight.
Well, sorry, folks, it's really all about smacking toads!  I kinda feel gyped!
Stillgard said there were toads here to smack!  All I see are weird Almost Exactly
things.  Noise, gods, rats, twisters, geesh.  What the heck are these things!  I also
saw some Cardow Hunters, what the heck is a Cardow?  All I know is it's not a toad!
Cavemen, Werid Students, Black Samurai, Living Dead, Pain?  All have one thing in
common, NOT TOADS!  I want my money back!  Oh ya, great fight Rat.  If you see any
toads send them my way.

     Toadsmacker

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LAPUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  The guys at WEIRD 
STUDENTS like really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP 
award for GAMMA DELPHINI?  DELPHINUS' proud of him after beating NEVA and getting 23 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DANCES WITH RAIN's match with HOMINY CRICKET 
cost her a loss of 12 points!  Like, MAUL RAT must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged 
the Duelmaster from THE TAKEN.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MAUL RAT.  
Aren't ALMOST EXACTLY proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of WEIRD STUDENTS must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are LIVING DEAD?  WEIRD STUDENTS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is LAUGHING LULU popular, or what?  
She was challenged the most in all of LAPUR!  She's got a 1-5-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
