                             Notes from the arena champ.

     As I think of topics for discussion in my regular DM Column, I must admit that I
am just not in the trash talk mood today.  That's soooooo boring.  No, let's get
serious.  Here are the stats of The Paper Marios, some of which have been "enhanced":
ST - 19,18,15,14,12 (avg 15.6)
CN - 18,17, 6, 5, 5 (avg 10.2)
SZ - 16,11,10,10, 8 (avg 11.0)
WT - 21,16,15,15, 7 (avg 14.8)
WL - 21,15, 9, 9, 9 (avg 12.6)
SP - 16,16, 6, 4, 3 (avg  9.0) 
DF - 21,11,11,11,11 (avg 13.0)
     So there you are.  Come and get us!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KALTOS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as KALTOS KRIMINALS is pushed out of top team by THE MIDDLE WAY 5, who came from 2nd 
with a 3-2-1 this turn.  And let's see, CLANK fought WOODS and gained 17 points and 
contributed to PAPER MARIO's 4-0-0.  WOODS has lost to CLANK, falling 29 points, 
while helping make SPORTS GREATS a 1-1-0 turn.  Well done, KALTOS, the Duelmaster was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps BOMBETTE is not as thrilled, being 
challenged 2 times.  This turn BOMBETTE challenged ORVERD QUILL in what was KALTOS' 
Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BOMBETTE 
remains KALTOS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the CASSEY'S CREW stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided CASSEY'S CREW stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was PAPER 
MARIO.  Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that KALTOS has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KALTOS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Jeri -- I'm still doing all I can.  Really.  I just thumped Overd, did you see?  I want
to graduate, but I just know The Commission has something about breaking up romances.  If
you see my love, tell him to wait for me. -- Bombette

Woods -- You were fantastic!  Beautiful--and looooong--drives, masterful irons, and
accurate putting.  So good!  And every single time I swang, something went.... -- Clank
P.S.  The Consortium Boss says to send his regards to Papa Bear.

Trick Pony Polly -- There were no tricks.  I just wasn't good enough.  That's so
Kriminal. -- Tiny Toes

I must send my congratulations to Bombette for her Duelmaster Title.  That was number
Ten. -- Luigi, Manager Paper Marios

Bombette -- Gods, all the gladiatresses on the Isle must be INSANE with jealousy of you!
They're probably waylaying the messengers bringing your long overdue Invitation.  It's
definitely a plot. -- Orverd Quill

M. Chardinee -- Sir!  You must be spending too much time in my teammate Helene's company,
to be so depleted and easily exhausted.  Perhaps you should retire and just...train other
Chardinees? -- Elinde Goss

Alice in Chains -- It seems cruel at first glance, but what do I know, eh?  Maybe you--or
Alice if that is NOT you--deserve it. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Kelly -- Ah!  I *knew* we needed more women around here.  And I do like one with staying
power.  Er, that means you're staying, right?  We'll treat you right. -- Jammy Larke

Street Wise Wanda -- Hard times, sword-sister.  This is not the same as the street.
Unpleasnat but true.  Not that I meant to kill you, but that's the arena for you.  Hard
luck. -- Katirona Murh

Two Sports Greats sent to the Dark Arena on the same day?  Hard times indeed.  They will
be missed, not least because some of my gladiators could sometimes defeat them. -- Jorja,
the Middle Way

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
