                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, you see what happens when you dump your pasta into the water before it
reaches a full boil?  It ends up flacid and gummy, which is no state for a gladiator!
And it doesn't do the least bit of good to try disguising it with a flavorful sauce:
might as well pour that sauce on mush.  Nothing personal, Rig, but you just weren't
ready for this particular fight.  I hope your manager, a notably tough sort, doesn't
send you to the Dark Arena over such a reasonable loss.

                                  Kovaramann Voth

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out OSKSI to see 
what's new.  MVP award for FARFALE?  PASTA's proud of her after beating ELVORN 
MARSLAN and getting 10 points.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think KOVARAMANN VOTH should let RIGATONI be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  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.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  MANICOTTI gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles 
HIGH ELF, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet PASTA manager is surprised!  Hey you 
guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have 
someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Farfale -- I've been thinking about it, and I believe you are RIGHT, I do need to
take, well, maybe not dancing lessons, but time to watch dancers and study their
movements.  Yours are especially good.  Do you dance professionally somewhere?  I
picture you in an environment of exotic music, aladin-lamps, and spicy mutton dishes,
and I can get along fine with those items.  What do you say?  Is it a date? -- Elvorn
Marslan

Do you know, the Convicted Assassin had the NERVE to tell me he took up that line of
work "because he had an unfortunate childhood," and then he asked me for money so he
could "get a new life."  I told him he could only get a new life if I could take his
old one.  Oddly enough, this did not appeal to him. -- Tarobinz Maur

Orbin Atrium -- There is no longer any room for doubt.  Your manager hates you.  He
wants you to die so he can replace you with some polished young hotshot.  Resist!  Do
not give him that satisfaction.  Wear armor! -- Melandon Sorn

Abadu Flatn -- Tell me, just for my own curiosity and satisfaction, how long have you
been a golem?  Did it come on you suddenly, or was it a slow transformation?  That it
was a sorcerous event is, of course, indicated by your team name, but I have wondered
(sometimes) how such things come about.  Could they (horrid thought!) strike people
totally unawares, who simply happen to be in the wrong place at the right time?
Could it be (really horrid thought!) contagious?  I have no wish to wake up some
morning and find myself turned into a golem, you know! -- Vandelshimhan Tiru
