                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was, I suppose, a fairly good try, Vasquez, but... eh.  I think you should
stick to sailing or whatever.  In fact, if you want to handle the boat, I'll handle
the fishlines, and we can do business.

                                    Fisher King

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZUKAL to see 
what's new.  MVP award for NORTHER?  BLUE MOON's proud of him after beating VASQUEZ 
and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  VASQUEZ's match with NORTHER 
cost her a loss of 20 points!  Was that a tear I saw in SHORT SKIRT's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't FISHER KING fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

you THAT hard! -- Bitterman
