                             Notes from the arena champ.

Actaon -- To continue the ripper/waste debate.  Here's the deal, a PR, unlike a WOS,
can get by with will levels well below those that deliver skills, quite nicely.  We'd
prefer to have the skills, but that's not always possible.  Plus, have you seen the
majority of waste weapons?  Major muscle requirements.  Rippers can't afford such a
luxury with their numbers.  It'll all come out in the wash.  Believe me...I could
never have been a Wall of Steel. -- Melody, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KOLACT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for SIR 
BROKE STROKER?  SIR AGLIO's proud of him after beating SYD TUBULAR and getting 26 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SYD TUBULAR got smashed by SIR BROKE 
STROKER, and lost 29 points!  Boo, hoo!  SIR DA slew (slaught?  slet?) MELODY!  
Actually I never liked her much.  She just wanted to fight all the time.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of FEAR LESS must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why SPRINGBORN's been avoiding FEAR LESS so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  KOLACT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
