                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Consags, all I can say is that I am waiting for y'all to graduate or for me to
graduate, and hoping the twain do not meet.  Until then, Happy Trails To You...
     Besides, if the Democrat Lawmakers in Wisconsin can run and hide, so can the
Arkers Duelmaster.  Phbttttt!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARKERS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, SMITHSONIAN, but Z 
GLADIATORZ was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for IWO JIMA?  SMITHSONIAN's 
proud of him after beating CIVILIZED CRIMINAL and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  ANITA KILL got smashed by ZEPHYR, and lost 2 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  KERBIN NOTTS knows this. 
He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair? 
I think ZITHER should let KERBIN NOTTS be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  TRIAL BY COMBAT was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 17-19-3 record really that scary?  I don't know what 
SMITHSONIAN's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
TRIAL BY COMBAT, that's fer sher.  Like, is KERBIN NOTTS popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of ARKERS!  He's got a 19-38-1, is that good?  I'm not so 
sure ALAMO knew all the facts when it challenged CONFIDENCE of CONSANGUINEOUS.  I saw 
ALAMO stumbling and dribbling at The Warty Toad last week...  What did ALAMO expect, 
anyway!  Of course CONFIDENCE won.  Next time stick to people you have a chance 
against, dummy!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Kerbin -- It was me and you, and then it was me. -- Zither DM V
P.S.  Hopefully we can do it again.  Who needs those Consag-whatevers.

Consags -- Ducking?  I am not ducking you; I am avoiding you.  I would hate to hurt
you little people.  Yeah. -- Zither

Kotter Nahl -- I have a zest to win in the arena and you did little to squelch it.  I
appreciate that. -- Zest

Confession -- I didn't need you.  I have been a good person.  I really needed
Communion instead. -- Zephyr

Confidence -- When I challenged, I had little confidence that I could overcome your
natural confidence, and I didn't.  But I did have confidence that I could keep you
away from Zither, and I did. -- Zork

Imerta Loel -- You shouldn't have let me out of my cage. -- Zoo

Way to go, Zs.  You squeeked by with a 3-2, even though those dastardly Consaguineous
creatures were gunnin' for you. -- The Z Man

You Pay I Slay -- Apparently no one paid you?  It was my pure pleasure to rock your
world. -- Plymouth Rock

Fratsfa Mercenary -- I guess they need to train you better, Man? -- Yosemite

Stray Catman -- You will not find your stray cat in the arena, Pal.  But thanks for
being there. -- Mayflower

Anita Kill -- I salute my better.  Well fought.  The hill is yours--for now. -- Iwo
Jima

Indior Landis -- Looks like history repeated itself. -- Alamo

Health.  Humility.  Honor -- Curator of Smithsonians

Zither -- It's tough, not being called to the Isle.  But it's also tough being
called.  Being pressured to go, leaving things undone here, leaving the known,
leaving... real life.  Because somehow what I have heard of life on the Isle doesn't
sound quite... real.  Too one-dimensional, perhaps.  I don't want to go! -- Indior
Landis

Curator -- Thanks, I guess. -- Indior Landis

Plymouth Rock -- Sure, you don't want female admonishment, just avoid the females.
Not a problem. -- Imerta Loel

Zither -- Nope, by the time it stopped falling, we had fourteen inches here, and
we're on top of a hill!  Imagine what it must have been like in the valleys. --
Kerbin Notts
P.S.  But we've gone from snow season to flood season rather quickly, so... different
problems.
P.P.S.  Wish *I* could've gone "just visiting" to Tempe!

Zee Man, Consanguineous, and any other congratulators farther down the personals
column -- Thanks. -- Indior Landis

Zither -- And I suppose if I go teaching you three skills, I'll be giving lessons
again soon? -- Kerbin Notts

Alamo -- What was that name again?  I forget.... -- Indior Landis

Zoo -- Do you do the zebra trick?  I've always wanted to see that one. -- Imerta Loel

M. Chardinee bored me. -- Norm Quesha

Zest -- But YOU weren't boring, even though you won. -- Kotter Nahl
P.S.  That didn't come out quite like I meant it to.  How about, "You won, darn, but
at least I wasn't bored"?
