                             Notes from the arena champ.

Conversation overheard near the Paper Mario club house....

Star Rod:  "Now, Luigi; I don't have to write one of those Duelmaster Columns, do
I?"

Luigi:  "Yes."

Star Rod:  "Well, OK."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KALTOS to see 
what's new.  Like, TEAM CHAOS ELITE had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by PAPER MARIO!  Way to go PAPER MARIO!  MVP award for GERDIG IBBINS?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's proud of him after beating MOON CHILD and getting 28 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  MOON CHILD's match with GERDIG IBBINS cost her a loss of 25 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause it's Number One!  ELINDE GOSS 
knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think STAR ROD should let ELINDE GOSS be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said KALTOS' Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 
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 THE MIDDLE WAY 5, that's fer sher.  Can THE MIDDLE 
WAY 5's ELINDE GOSS be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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

Helene -- Consider yourself all mine now! (twink) -- Twink
Note:  a twink is a teasing wink

Jeri -- It was fun.  Let's do it again.

Overd Quill -- Spare the rod and spoil the star! -- Star Rod

Federer and Sports Greats -- You yellow-bellied polecats!  You hid from our
bloodfeud!  You cowards. -- Luigi and The Paper Mario Clan

Twink -- (in a voice of loathing)  Golems! -- Helene Juste
P.S.  There is never anything to say or do with a golem.

Star Rod -- Gosh, that was close!  If you'd've lost, *I* would've had to do a column!
Horrid thought, it's the kind of thing that makes me wake up in the middle of the
night screaming.  But you golems should handle it with no problem, right?  No natural
human aversions to making a spectacle of yourselves? -- Orverd Quill

Bombette -- Hmm, I think the bird's nest in your hair is a mistake, even though the
stuffed birds are very... colorful. -- Jeri Lough
P.S.  I bet if you'd given me a chance to draw my backup, things would have gone
differently.

Convicted Assassin?  I don't think so! -- Elinde Goss
P.S.  How could this fool succeed in assassinating anyone?

Mordant Deserter Go Home. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Star Rod and Bombette -- We would rather be home in bed.  Or at least somewhere else
than "there for you." -- Elinde Goss and Jeri Lough

Twink -- Ah, yes, THAT kind of math.  Okay. -- Jorja

M. Tolovi Chardinee -- Ah?  Hmm.  That opens up, or maybe "fills out," some
intriguing possibilities. -- Jeri Lough

Hector Jones, of the Famous Jones Brothers, Robbers of Banks -- If you'd known my
little brother, you would have been mean to him also. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Gerdig Ibbins -- You cad!  I had heard that the arena was getting a very low class of
gladiators lately, but you absolutely take the burned biscuit. -- Rovalo d'Kormachi,
formerly of Mordant

Wrathchild -- If you would be more cooperative next time, I might invite you to one
of our ceremonies. -- Lorando Selmetrio of the Cult of Two Rings

Iron Maiden -- Fifteen percent is not usery, considering your life expectancy.  I
wouldn't get far with a claim on your estate, you know. -- Medoro s'Klinsa, Merchant
of Transel
P.S.  Your expectancy due to being a gladiator, not some nasty foreknowledge.
Gladiators die.

Godsmack -- (snicker) -- Zarvol Blackhand the Blood-drinker, Dangerous Criminal
P.S.  I liked your hand.  A tasty morsel to stave off the pangs of hunger until I can
get ALL of you.

Overkill -- (whimper) -- Larsanthek of Kurukar and Fratsfa
P.S.  Hey, it's been a hard life since I was captured in childhood by the Fratsfans,
I NEED to whimper now and then.

Moon Child -- I still say it's bad business for me to give you a loan based on your
gambling prospects financed by an earlier loan. -- Medoro s'Klinsa, Merchant of
Transel

Elinde Goss -- What's BOTHERING you, woman?  You weren't my target, so there should
be no hard feelings.  It's just a job, not a philosophical statement. -- Wilbothe of
Andor, Respectable Assassin
