                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes!  I knew there was something fishy about that Mickey Mantle!  I won!  I hit
the home run!  I caught the over the shoulder deep fly ball!  I ended up standing.
My new name is going to be Sushi Ruth.  Come and strike me out!
     Sushie

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, PAPER 
MARIO.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with FERGUS HILL?  He actually 
beat PAPER MARIO's STAR ROD, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at PAPER MARIO.  STAR ROD lost 15 points to FERGUS HILL.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe STAR ROD will provide more easy wins...  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged SPORTS GREATS' MICKEY MANTLE?  That sort of initiative is how 
she got where she is now.  MICKEY MANTLE was reminded on the sands why SUSHIE is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
KALTOS thinks SPORTS GREATS and their 32-28-4 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PAPER MARIO ain't 
reelin'!  SPORTS GREATS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, MICKEY MANTLE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Jeri -- I had so much fun with that.  I am so excited! -- Bombette

Khalhums, Userous -- You guys are our true friends. -- Star Rod & Twink

Mickey -- I hope we are trying this again this round.  I WANT you! -- Sushie

Overd & Fergus -- I just may give up on you both. -- Bombette

4-0!  That is more like it! -- Luigi

Pele -- You're a tough one, all right.  If I catch an old boot, I'll give it to you,
because old boots are also very tough.  It'd be appropriate. -- Fergus Hill

Bombette -- I could WISH you wouldn't keep exploding in my face like that.  It's
terribly distracting, you know.  And the mess! -- Jeri Lough
P.S.  Yes, there IS mess, even though by some arcane means you personally remain
intact.  You kick the sand up fiercely, and I HATE combing sand out of my hair.

I truly didn't laugh at the Ambitious Guard.  I chuckled, yes, but that was, well,
almost involuntary!  He twice cursed the gods in frustration, as though expecting
that to do any GOOD, and of course it didn't.  An intelligent gladiator realizes that
few gods have the least interest in us, unless they happen to be gamblers with bets
on. -- Helene Juste
P.S.  But if you curse them often enough, THAT they do notice.  To your cost.

The Osksi Noble has fans?  At least they fell silent. -- Elinde Goss

I didn't want an orc.  Truly.  I wouldn't have gone out and captured one, I mean,
what for?  Unless he likes to fish? -- Orverd Quill

Twink -- Well, yes, of course!  It's my job. -- Fergus Hill

Star Rod and Bombette -- Did you remember something really good?  Like where the cake
is hiding?  Can we have some, too? -- Jeri and Orverd

Overkill -- You live up to your name, you wretched jock! -- Lurvayne to'Kass, a
gambler, not really an embezzler, that's just what I do to stay afloat

Wrathchild -- So, you got the win, how about a fiver for me? -- Oh-John, Persistent
Beggar

Iron Maiden -- (recoiling)  I like my maidens softer. -- Rovalo d'Kormachi, late of
Mordant

Godsmack -- What?  I have to fight a second time, I stagger out on the sands,
dedicated to fulfilling my contractual obligations, and YOU won't give me the price
of a meal, either? -- Oh-John, Really Persistent Beggar

Moon Child -- Think of this as...seasoning.  When you've lost, you'll appreciate a
win more. -- Lurvayne to'Kass
P.S.  I can see hoicking Oh-John into the arena twice, but why ME?  What did *I* do?

Orverd Quill -- I suppose your viciousness stems from jealousy, since I am clearly
more intelligent than you are.  The lesser folk are always jealous, dimly perceiving
what they lack now and always. -- Geroge Maloth, Free Orc and Thespian

Elinde Goss -- Anti-Dwarf, are you?  We'll get you for that. -- Oskan Steeltooth,
Osksi Noble and don't you forget it

Helene Juste -- You laughed!  You had the unutterable rudeness to snicker at my
heartfelt compliments, to kick sand in my face when I fell.  I fear my heart will
break. -- Kish Alfors, Ambitious Guard

Twink -- A golem is a sad thing, but a golem that beats up on true people, though
entirely comprehensible, is an abomination.  I wonder what you would bring as...
spare parts? -- Medoro s'Klinsa of Transel, Merchant and Moneylender

Star Rod -- Thank you, I needed that nap. -- Oskan Steeltooth, Moonlighting Dwarf of
Khalhums and Osksi
