                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Perhaps you are going to seed, Sativa?  That was an unfair match, but then, the
handicapper hates us all.  Him and the Match-Up Gods.  They're out to GET us.  Maybe
we should do something about this.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for OSKSI.  MVP award for FARFALE?  PASTA's 
proud of her after beating TAROBINZ MAUR and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU's match with ORBIN ATRIUM cost him a loss of 9 points!  
Was that a tear I saw in RIGATONI's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
ELVORN MARSLAN fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  GAMES LIBRARY 
was OSKSI's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what 
PASTA's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GAMES 
LIBRARY, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Farfale -- Are you any relation to falafel?  Not that I'm about to start doing
"cooking notes"!  Far from it.  But I just wondered.  I was never overly fond of
falafel, and you remind me of it. -- Melandon Sorn

Flying Fingers of Steel, oh joy.  I never had any desire to learn Kung-Fu, and I also
don't desire to meet its practioners.  If I can't have the second, does that mean I
have to work on the first? -- Kovaramann Voth

Ihitterquitter -- Er.  Ah.  Well.  I hit you, which seemed to be the thing to do.  I
liked the result, anyway. -- Tarobinz Maur

Abadu Flatn -- I figure I did you a favor there.  There's a tale going around our
guildhouse of a gladiator in a two-team arena, did really well, 18-0 and duelmaster
whenever she cared to fight.  It made her overconfident.  She went to the tourney and
pulled an 0-3 there, and when she got home, it was Dark Arena time.  So I figure our
duty is to make all you other guys work for your records and your ranks, so you won't
have that unfortunate experience. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru, philanthropist

Green With Envy -- We're conducting an informal survey which may be totally useless
as well as informal.  But here 'tis:  If some one arena were to be designated a
"role-playing" arena, what do you feel should be required of the players there?
Personals, obviously, but what else?  Short spotlights on a regular basis, no big
quests, just life in the arena and guildhouse?  Something that hasn't occurred to me
yet?  Not just the whole alliance wrangling thing as in North Fork (which is
remarkably amiable and enjoyable).  Some kind of open-ended contest-like competition?
If I can get some kind of clear image, I'm going to push it to the Commission and see
what happens. -- Jorja
