                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What I want to know is, why haven't I graduated yet?  I'm ready.  I've got
skills, I've got experience, I've got political points, and several of my teammates
have pushed past me in the line to graduate.  It's infamous!  I suppose the
Commission is biased against my style, which is the best all-around style for defense
and offense, but not flashy enough for them.  I curl my lip in scorn.  Either that,
or they don't want this team to graduate a striker, because that's the only style the
team has NOT graduated.  Idiots.

                                    Pete Mastiff

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JHELUM!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, TL;DR, but KIWI 
CONNECTION was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for ARMITAGE?  KIWI 
CONNECTION's proud of him after beating JACK RUSTLE and getting 25 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  GERMAINE SHEPPARD got smashed by IRONSIDE, and lost 8 
points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT PETE MASTIFF is 
still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  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.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bummer!  JACK RUSTLE got wasted by ARMITAGE!  But with a 5-4-0, I 
guess DOGS OF WAR aren't too bummed.  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 gotta leave.  JHELUM is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Kenya -- You have kiwis there?  I would never have guessed. -- Mat'ari

Cassis -- That's a kind of drink, isn't it?  Seems like I've heard of it as such.
With... vermouth in it?  Not that ver-mouth seems like much recommendation.  Well, I
suppose that depends on the derivation of ver-.  Still. -- Germaine Sheppard
