                             Notes from the arena champ.

Little Bo Bombette has lost her sheep.
And couldn't tell where to bomb them.
Leave them alone.  They'll come home.
As rack of lamb.

Bom, bom, bom, bom, Bombette!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but TEAM CHAOS ELITE will tell you 55-42-4 is nothing to laugh at...  
Practice pays for MOON CHILD, who pummelled ORVERD QUILL, to pocket 20 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, MOON CHILD was winsome, after beating ORVERD 
QUILL and seeing him lose 21 points.  Duelmaster BOMBETTE from PAPER MARIO is going 
for the gold, as she challenged THE MIDDLE WAY 5's JERI LOUGH.  Ooh, the excitement!  
JERI LOUGH found out that KALTOS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of TEAM CHAOS ELITE should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, PAPER MARIO scurried away from TEAM CHAOS ELITE.  Oh, the shame!  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and JERI LOUGH is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't THE MIDDLE WAY 5 proud!  Mismatched by 8 points, ZAHARIUS 
lost to SLINKY.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought SLINKY showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued ZAHARIUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe WOODS of SPORTS GREATS money and had written him off, take note:  he'S 
BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena wasn't 
enough for ALI of SPORTS GREATS.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Victory 
Tavern will be!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts 
in the arena.  A certain tavern in KALTOS would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid KALTOS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Moon Child -- What did I do to you?  Very little, actually.  I think you are just
being affected by the tides.  My grandma is bothered like that. -- Bombette
P.S.  Go take it out on Overd.

Jorja -- Cider, wine, ale, etc, etc.  Bring 'em on! -- Luigi

Jeri -- I know; I know; we shopped way too long. -- Bombette

Wrathchild -- That noise you heard was not from my weapon, but rather from the
surface with which it hit. -- Clank

Bombette -- Do you ever get the feeling that, much as we like each other, it would be
good to have TOTALLY NEW opponents sometimes?  Graduate, dammit. -- Jeri Lough

Iron Maiden -- I don't think I could face a corset like that.  I like a little
flexibility. -- Elinde Goss

M. Tolovi Chardinee -- Your courtesy knows no bounds, sir.  My thanks. -- Helene
Juste

Moon Child -- When the moon is full, does it make you kind of crazy or something?  I
mean, why did you quit? -- Orverd Quill the puzzled

I never did like Kung-Fu. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Bombette -- I knew that.  It shows all over you. -- Jeri
P.S.  Probably the feathers, which are what they call "strategically placed."

Our congratulations to Dead Tourney Victor Insanity.  We hope you don't regret coming
back. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Lady Protector Helene Juste -- Must you leave?  Could you not enter retirement here
on Kaltos where we could bask in your loveliness for another year?  I bet I could
find you a pleasant apartment with a view over the bay.  And the Chardinee says he
can get you a suite of furniture.  Stay! -- Arenamaster Troktai

Slinky -- They all say that. -- Lurvayne to'Kass, a gambler and scribe

Elinde Goss -- No, of course I don't.  No sane person would enjoy gladiation.  But I
almost have enough saved up to open my own hat shop.  Then I will be done with
concubinage forever, and someone else can take the job. -- Devrie Scatha, Concubine
Out of Favor

Helene Juste -- M'lady, your concern is touching.  Might I be the first to ask you
out for dinner, if you take up Troktai's offer?  Or at least the second, since he
seems to want to take you to dinner himself.  Tell me I won't come behind the
Chardinee! -- Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword for Hire
P.S.  I think "rough diamond" to describe Jeri Lough is an understatement.

Helene Juste -- You are always devastating, fair one. -- M. Tolovi Chardinee

Gerdig Ibbins -- If you don't practice, you probably won't survive, and even if you
do survive, you will be a laughingstock on the Isle of the Eye. -- Master Fu Toledo,
Expert of Esoteric Martial Arts

Zaharius -- I show up EVERY DAY, just in case I might be needed, and THIS is the
thanks I get?  Cheese. -- Rovalo d'Kormachi, formerly of Mordant
