                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I just knew it!  I knew it.  There IS a plot to keep me in Kaltos!  I cannot
wait until we get to the bottom of this.  Someone is gonna pay, and pay really big
time.  Just you wait and see.  Just wait!
     (on her knees praying to the gods for deliverance from Kaltos)

                                      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 THE MIDDLE WAY 5 is pushed out of top team by PAPER MARIO, who came from 2nd with 
a 2-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, CLANK fought ELINDE GOSS and gained 15 points and 
contributed to PAPER MARIO's 2-0-0.  ELINDE GOSS has lost to CLANK, falling 11 
points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY 5 a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and BOMBETTE remains KALTOS' top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 has cause to stand tall, as they were 
KALTOS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided THE MIDDLE WAY 5 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.  WOODS must have surprised SPORTS 
GREATS this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't 
hold him!  Is it really true that KALTOS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KALTOS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KALTOS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Make that twelve for Bombette!  Huiya! -- Luigi

Overd -- I tried burying you in the sand because you called me a rag/bore/hank-of-
hair and nice-looking little thing!  Too bad you are not a nice-looking thing! --
Bombette
P.S.  Take THAT, and THAT, and THAT again!

Alice -- I liked the chains, but not the "L". -- Tiny Toes

Elinde Goss -- Phbttttttt! -- Clank

Bombette -- Familiar faces, eh?  I suppose I can see why Fergus is attracted to you,
but why are you so hot for him?  He's nothing special, and I can assure you, from
personal observation, that he puts his pants on one leg at a time. -- Orverd Quill

Power Slave -- And you ALLOW this? -- Katirona Murh

Clank -- Not today.  Today, I crow.  In a manner of speaking.  Gloat, anyway. --
Elinde Goss

Overkill -- Boy, you said it! -- Gerdig Ibbins

Iron Maiden -- You take all the fun out of seduction, even as you up the challenge to
moon-high. -- Jammy Lark

Bombette -- Nah, it's jealousy on the part of other Lady Protectors. -- Orverd
P.S.  Catch the Commission taking anyone's feelings into account!  As if!
