                             Notes from the arena champ.

     As a they say, "what a long strange trip this has been."  I started off in the
fast no-tourney arena but slugbait got board and took a duelmasters vacation.  I
moved into Kaltos as part of slugbait's 7'2 giants project.  Sat on my butt waiting
for other warriors to graduate in other arenas and finally got a chance to run and
win.
     The DM Crown was a bit of a surprise to me.  I felt Newlin Parrit was going to
win it but I kept working away at it and won (by a tiny bit).  Plan to rechallenge
Newlin since he taught me so well.

Buzz Kill

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KALTOS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for SAIRY WELLS?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's proud of her after beating VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 16 points.  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  BUZZ KILL stopped HORSE dead in its tracks!  
Who was the wiseguy that said KALTOS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory 
Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MASSAGE 
PARLORS was the most avoided team.  Is a 31-28-1 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are SHADY LADIES?  MASSAGE PARLORS, an easy team to beat if I 
ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can THE MIDDLE WAY 5's ISOBEL 
KLINE be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KALTOS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  KALTOS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
