                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hah!  Tiny Toes cannot even beat Convicted Assassin?  What a dork of a DM!  All
paper, no Mario!
     Now, me, I had no problem slinking past Kung-Fu Master.  A slink a day keeps the
doctor away.
     Two more PP's for me and I'm outta here.  Then I guess I can let Tiny Toes take
back over.
     Wish me luck!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GOOMBARIO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HILROC JEEMS and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down TINY TOES, causing her to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Although KUNG-FU MASTER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious SLINKY.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KALTOS these days is TEAM CHAOS ELITE.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of PAPER MARIO last week.  Busy avoiding TEAM CHAOS ELITE?  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after HILROC JEEMS.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My condolences to THE MIDDLE WAY 5 for their loss 
of a very promising warrior, HILROC JEEMS.  HILROC JEEMS went to doom before the arms 
of GOOMBARIO, a warrior of PAPER MARIO.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KALTOS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Convicted Assassin -- Well, uh, you, uh, stepped on my toes; you cheat!  Grrrrr!  I
shoulda beat you; I should. -- Tiny Toes

You are so funny, TT!  What a card. -- Slinky, Duelmaster

I want my share of this excitement! -- Goombario

Jammy -- I may be shy, but I don't wanna die. -- Shy Guy

Pendru -- Shy or not, when one practices with the boss standing there with a cattle
rod in hand and I don't jump first?!  Buzzzzzzzo!  That shouldn't be allowed, should
it? -- Shy Guy

Now, now, Shy Guy; the tales you tell for attention!  Tsk.  Tsk. -- Luigi

Shy Guy -- Like I'm going to believe that?  As if! -- Jammy Larke

Oh, dear.  A Captured Orc.  I can't say that "I never know what to do with a Captured
Orc," but still, I get tired of having to do it so OFTEN.  Some of them even cry when
I beat them. -- Katirona Murh

I don't know what that Guard is Ambitious to be, but if it isn't a target dummy, he's
going to be disappointed. -- Felissa Hurm

I just don't have TIME to deal with a stupid Dangerous Criminal today.  Take him
away, lock him up, and throw away the key. -- Pendru Rost

And a really stupid Embezzling Scribe.  He should know better than to bet on the
fights. -- Hilroc Jeems

Larsanthek of Kurukar and Fratsfa -- Of course.  Why should I give you mercy, when
there are those who deserve it more and don't get it?  Life is unfair.  Get over it.
-- Katirona Murh

Tiny Toes -- Think of it as getting off easy.  I could have killed you. -- Wilbothe
of Andor, Respectable Assassin

Slinky -- I believe the use of accordion wire is not sanctioned in the arena.
However, if we meet again, I will bring wire cutters. -- Master Fu Toledo, Expert of
Esoteric Martial Arts

Katirona Murh -- You have no sympathy for an underdog, do you? -- Geroge Maloth,
Trapped Orc

Felissa Hurm -- I prefer a woman who is soft and yielding, who realizes that I'm a
wonderful guy, and who allows me to set the pace.  You don't rate. -- Kish Alfors,
Guardsman with Ambitions

Pendru Rost -- Damn. -- Zarvol Blackhand the Blood-drinker, Most Dangerous Criminal
on Kaltos

Hilroc Jeems -- But...but I was betting ON you! -- Ghost of Lurvayne to'Kass, a
gambler and scribe
