                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I can't do this.  It isn't fair that I have to do this.  What if I say something
wrong?  What if somebody laughs at me?  Especially one of those pretty girls.  This
hurts too much.
     Please, Luigi.  Puhleeze, can I stop.
              Shy Guy

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  What's with JAMMY LARKE?  He actually beat 
CASSEY'S CREW's KELLY, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at THE MIDDLE WAY 5 while they watched KATIRONA MURH clobber TINY TOES.  She 
lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as it might, 
HALIBUTT wasn't good enough at persuading SHY GUY to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
KALTOS thinks THE MIDDLE WAY 5 and their 440-453-16 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 438-450-16 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, PAPER MARIO?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, JAMMY LARKE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     Warriors of KALTOS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Felissa -- How can you say that so hurtfully!?  It's MY nose! -- Goombario (thinking
she's gotta go)

Chardinee -- Nice meeting you.  I liked it that you didn't say one word. -- Shy Guy

Kelly -- How could you do that to me?  Now Luigi won't let me have any supper.
Waaaaaaaaah! -- Tubba Blubba

Invirna Korl -- What a pretty name.  Sorry I had to kik you. -- Star Kik

Well, M. Chardinee, you can talk to me if you want.  I won't walk all over you.  (Oh,
I just did?) -- Tiny Toes

Ok, OK, Paper Marios; that's enough chatter.  Let's get down to business.  Er, a,
what is our business? -- Luigi

A Captured Orc?  That's all the arena could come up with for ME?  Cheese.  They could
at least have fed him after capturing him, so he'd be up to some action.  This is
just rotten. -- Jammy Larke

The Dangerous Criminal did not, today, impress me.  He might be criminal, but he
surely wasn't dangerous. -- Katirona Murh

Whoopee-do, the Userous Merchant.  Aren't there any managed gladiators to fight us?
We can't be that frightening, so it's got to be tourney timing.  Yeah, that's it,
because between this turn running just before you read these personals and the one
that will run in two weeks, the tourney will occur.  Damn.  Wish I could go, but it's
out of the question. -- Felissa Hurm

Ambitious Guard.  Ho hum. -- Pendru Rost

Star Kik -- As far as we're concerned, you're too tall to be a dwarf, but I DON'T
CARE.  A managed opponent, even if it means a loss for me (just call me "bathhouse
trainer"), is great.  And it still leaves us with a 4-1 turn.  Not too shabby. --
Irvina Korl

Tiny Toes -- I know you orcs are a little odd, but I prefer to dance with men. --
Katirona Murh

Tubba Blubba -- Nah, watching you eat would make me barf. -- Jammy Larke

Goombario -- Good luck at the tourney.  They tell me it is to be held in a "warm
place."  Sounds like trouble to me!  Take care. -- Felissa Hurm

The standbys wanted to get some personals in, but they submitted them in handwritten
form, and I couldn't read 'em.  So not this time. -- an arena scribe
