                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well well well, Bombette was finally put into her place and who did it?  Lil ol Me, a
dwarf that has a fondness for spanking tall voluptuous young women.  <Evil Grin>
Besides after being placed in a strange time warp by my boss for the past 10 years
while he was gone, has put me in an unreasonable state of mind.  Wouldn't you if you
were in that state, but can still hear everything going on around you.  It's quite
maddening, trust me!

Anyway, Bombette I hope your stay in the infirmary helped you get your strength back,
because I think we might be seeing a lot of each other.  <Wink>

Your new Duelmaster Tiffinal

                                      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 PAPER MARIO is pushed out of top team by IMAGE, who came from 2nd with a 1-4-0 
this turn.  On their very first turn, CYBERTRON had a 4-0-0, and with this kind of 
luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to KALTOS.  And let's see, BUMBLEBEE fought 
SPAWN and gained 21 points and contributed to CYBERTRON's 4-0-0.  SPAWN has lost to 
BUMBLEBEE, falling 12 points, while helping make IMAGE a 1-4-0 turn.  Well done, 
KALTOS, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps TIFFINAL is 
not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  CLANK challenged for the Duelmastership 
this turn, attempting to dethrone WIZARD'S WRATH's warrior.  And not without some 
honor, CLANK now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of KALTOS.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  CASSEY'S CREW 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 CASSEY'S CREW stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was PAPER MARIO.  Anyone surprised?  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  GEN-13, does your manager know 
you're challenging down 22 points to fight PENDRU ROST from THE MIDDLE WAY 5?  It 
pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  GEN-13 overcame 
PENDRU ROST, as if it surprises anyone.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Overd -- You're kidding, of course?  I am beginning to believe men are all alike.
Love 'em; leave 'em; forget 'em.  Isn't that what you all say?  I am thinking
seriously about this "ambidextrous" route. -- Bombette

Tiffinal -- Where have you been all my life?  Wow!  You've got the moves!  Congrats.
-- Bombette

Gerdig Ibbins -- Well, I thought it was fun. -- Tiny Toes

Welcome back, Wizard's Wrath.  You may have arrived just in time to see us go. --
Luigi, Paper Marios

Feliss Hurm -- How do you like my friend Spawn? -- Super Patriot

Rovalo d'Kormachi -- Well, around 40 teams, concepts become limited, don't make me
send Pitt after you!  As my will, so mote it be! -- Abraxis

All -- I don't know what happened to Violater, I guess he was busy clowning around.
-- Abraxis

Tiny Toes -- Those diminutive digits are just amazing and have completely reft me of
the will to hit you.  It's all a plot, isn't it? -- Gerdig Ibbins

Halibutt -- I'd be wrathful, too, if someone wished you on me, and I'm not even a
wizard. -- Jammy Larke

Kelly -- The thing to understand here, is that books are heavier than they look, in
direct proportion to the erudition of their contents.  So that a box which could
easily be lifted when filled with fluffy novels will break your back if filled with
the reports of archeologists and epigraphers and the deductions various people choose
to draw therefrom.  Of course, once you HAVE strained your back, if there are more
boxes, you stand in a sort of half-hunch and look pitiful and get some other idiot to
move 'em. -- Katirona Murh

Spawn -- Ah, I thought you had to be taller to use that.  Guess I was wrong.
(wincing)  And you use it with great effect. -- Felissa Hurm

Savage Dragon -- Huh.  My teammates told me your name was all image, all on the
surface, you know?  It isn't. -- Pendru Rost, savaged by a dragon

Sasha -- If I did any better you would be standing before Ahringol. -- Apprentice

Jammy Larke -- You sure made that look easier than it was. -- Halibutt

All -- Just so you know Tiffinal, Apprentice and Halibutt are not sandbagging
tourney warriors.  They came here from the old transfer arenas. -- Visionist
