                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All I can say is look at that Woods!  Wow!  8-5-3!  I knew he could kill a
drive, but now he's killing off Kaltosians!  That Papa Bear must be one mean, mean
manager.  He's probably a grizzly.
     He's getting close.  Is he after me?
              Bombette, DM XIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  PAPER MARIO were a 
bunch of dogs after THE MIDDLE WAY 5 got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  What's with FELISSA HURM?  She actually beat KALTOS' EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and 
walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CASSEY'S CREW 
while they watched SASHA clobber KATIRONA MURH.  She lost 4 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  KALTOS has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back 
and get lazy.  She challenged THE MIDDLE WAY 5's ORVERD QUILL (22-30-1), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, ORVERD QUILL wasn't good enough at 
persuading BOMBETTE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  KALTOS thinks SPORTS 
GREATS and their 73-60-14 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!  What do people see in ORVERD QUILL?  His 22-30-1?  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 ain't 
talkin', but he's got 105 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  CHRISTINA of CASSEY'S CREW didn't know when to 
quit.  When you've got a 3-7-0, that's a good sign.  Now she's dead.  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Thirteen?!  Give em what for, Bombette The Kaltos Duel Queen! -- Luigi

Overd -- He does?  I never saw him put his pants on one leg at a time.  In fact, I
don't think I ever saw him put his pants on.  (wink) -- Bombette

Elinde -- Does that mean I now can double-gloat? -- Clank

Overd -- Soooooorrrrry. -- Bombette

Paper Mario -- I didn't realize that you were part of the Consortium.  So what
happened to Snuffly and the High Hopes crew? -- Dartor

Bombette -- You know, if you weren't such a cute chick, I could get really tired of
this.  And if Fergus weren't such dog in the manager, I could enjoy it more. --
Orverd Quill

Clank -- Consider it a gift of skills as I leave?  And, perhaps, a lack of real
interest now that my life isn't hanging on the fight. -- Elinde Goss

The Venomous Concubine, a lucious redhead, cried.  I can't stand it when women cry.
-- Gerdig Ibbins
P.S.  Especially lucious redheads.

The Userous Merchant should be ashamed of himself! -- Katriona Murh

Right, what she said. -- Jammy Larke

Bombette -- The Commission says I have an attractiveness of thirteen.  That's the
same as Fergus, so why do you call ME ugly and HIM not? -- Orverd

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
