                             Notes from the arena champ.

Alas, we are sad to report that this will be the last appearance of the Party
Animals on the sands here for a while.  For the second straight summer, team
management is undergoing a geographic relocation and will be forcing Crip to
withdraw from most DM play aside from 1 or 2 core teams based out of slow arenas.
In the meantime, we have been enjoying our duels here, and look forward to coming
back.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KALTOS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for IAN?  I 
HEART BALLS' proud of him after beating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and getting 21 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  SHANNO's match with FERGUS HILL cost her a loss of 6 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think SAMANTHA FOX should 
let GLORIA IMBRO be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of PARTY ANIMALS must be getting lonely. 
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what PAPER MARIO's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from PARTY ANIMALS, that's fer sher.  Like, is FERGUS HILL popular, or what?  
He was challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  He's got a 7-4-0, is that good?   
     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.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Fergus -- Gee!  I felt like a fish out of water. -- Sushie

Dineen -- And little did I expect to run into such a shorty.  Do the guys like to be
foyled? -- Twink

Ugh.  That 1-2 was no fun.  Where are the jocks when my Paper Marios need an easy
win? -- Luigi

Beatle Bailey -- I got this stuff in a spray can that's supposed to drive of
beetles, but I guess it doesn't work on beetles with an A.  Darn. -- Gloria Imbro

Mouse Davis -- There are too many Mice in the arena system, but that, thank the
gods, is no longer my concern. -- Lord Protector Ingold Kerr, retired

Sushie -- A little more practice, and you'll be good--too good, likely--at the
slice-and-dice business. -- Fergus Hill

Star Rod -- Well, that's how it is with rods and staves and posts in general.  They
stand there and get hit. -- Dineen Foyle

Twink -- I'm thoroughly mediocre, does that help? -- Dineen Foyle
P.S.  Actually, I thought you WERE supposed to defeat my style?  Or did I write
something down wrong...?

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
