                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings to all my adoring fans!  And to my not so adoring opponents.

I tried to find the exact turn that a Tank held the DM title, but the records
crumbled within my fingers, they were that old.  It was sometime in the late 80s.
Sherman was the only Tank to graduate to the Isle back then, so the boss is hopeful
for me.

Of course he tells me that there might be a curse on the stable about young warriors
and rising too quickly.  The first one to do this was a basher named Grant who was
savagely slain as he dueled for the title on his twelfth turn.  Incidentally, knowing
this might have affected my decision to fight this week, but now it's too late.

Howard gets my challenges this turn.  Sorry Diaper Rash and Hannibal, but that's how
the cookie crumbles.  See you on the sands.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JHELUM needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE WALL, but 
TANKS FOR NOTHIN' was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for MERKAVA?  TANKS FOR 
NOTHIN''s proud of him after beating HANNIBAL and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  RIPPIN's match with J.A. PINKERTON cost her a loss of 8 points!  Like 
DOGS OF WAR's HOWARD is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster LEOPARD!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  LEOPARD stopped HOWARD dead in his tracks!  Who 
was the wiseguy that said JHELUM's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty 
Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  BABY BROTHERS 
was JHELUM's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are TANKS FOR NOTHIN'?  BABY BROTHERS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can THE WALL's THE JUDGE be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People 
were asking me did FREEBEARD REALLY challenge THE JUDGE?  (all right, maybe they 
didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but THE 
JUDGE wants me to write about it since he subdued FREEBEARD.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  J.A. PINKERTON bloodfeuded (is that a word?) RIPPIN for revenge over 
some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all 
you guys can do?   
     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

Diapered Zalgor -- I give you your due for being the first in the regular arena to
defeat me.  Although, for the record, if you had not nearly chopped off my arm, I
think I would have beat you. -- Panther

Jimmy Custer -- Well fought!  Thank you for the opportunity!  Good luck in the rest
of your endeavors. -- Leopard

Hannibal -- A pleasure speaking with you. -- M1A1

Challon -- We meet again.  I believe this makes us 2-2, if memory is not too foggy.
-- Merkava

Fear-O-Me -- My old friend!!  How are the kiddies?  What did the doctor say about
that rash?  I know you were saying it was where the armor rubbed, but it seemed a
little more personal to me. -- MIA2

"The time for the fight has come."  The fight, in this case, being between manager
and gladiators on who is going to write what personals to whom.  Talk about pig-
headed non-communicators, gladiators have to take the ribbon on that. -- Jorja and
Nick, Dogs of War

Leopard -- "They" said I had to let you take the title on the win.  I don't see it,
but this is my last fight, and I don't CARE, either.  Wear it in good health, or
whatever. -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Oh, right, like I'm going to use a great axe?  Whoever came up with that one
was a nut, because I don't have the strength for it.  My hands are too delicate.
Besides, an axe is so CRUDE.  Quite a peasant's type of weapon.  Not for me.

Veteran Mercenary?  Of what, the Ladies' Crochet and Bingo Club?  He's pathetic. --
Howard

M1a1 -- As if seeing Jimmy graduate isn't enough to confuse ANYBODY.  Gods, what are
they THINKING? -- Hannibal
P.S.  But on the bright side, that means he isn't HERE pestering us anymore.

Merkava -- Well, ah...I wanted to give you a chance to save yourself from having a
record as bad as mine?  I wanted to avoid, at all costs, the possibility of sharing
your bathtub?  By the way, are YOU going to use it, or do the monsters keep you out?
Umm, have you considered that there probably are NOT any pink oliphands in your tub,
and maybe you should drink less?  It might all be in your head. -- Challon

J.A. Pinkerton -- I have nothing to say to a Pink. -- Leonidas
P.S.  I have other problems, and I don't need the distraction, okay?

Gimlet -- Um... I don't know about Crysalis.  I haven't heard anything about it.  Am
I going?  What?  I *AM* going?  NO!!! -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Well, maybe, anyway.

Hannibal -- Do I COOK?  Listen, I can burn water with the best of them! -- Doldo
d'Ariske, Veteran Mercenary

Floyd Pink -- Sorry old chap, but you see, I didn't think I had it in me.  Guess I'll
see you on the dark side of the moon. -- Rippin
