                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Riztab!

First of all, my condolences to Cults-R-Us on the loss of a very talented and
promising warrior in Madam Y.  She was devoted to Sleepy's favorite style.  I never
thought a guy with below average size and strength using an epee could kill such a
skilled veteran warrior.

I was preparing for the tourney (good luck all, make Riztab proud!) and wasn't
expecting to be writing this column, so I'll keep it short.

I'm honored to one of many Dreamers to hold the title here in our fine city.

Remember:  Helplessness guides the wandering thought in their breasts; they are
carried along deaf and blind alike, dazed, beasts without judgment, convinced that to
be and not to be are the same and not the same, and that the road of all things is a
backward-turning one.

Sleep well Riztab,

Parmenides

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for RIZTAB.  Like, CULTS-R-US had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DREAMERS!  Way to go DREAMERS!  MVP 
award for REPULSIVE ROGAN?  HIGH JINKS' proud of him after beating CORIANELLE and 
getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MOLLY got smashed by TARILISS, 
and lost 7 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
PARMENIDES should let SWEET BETSEY 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.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  HIGH JINKS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
295-266-18 record really that scary?  I don't know what THE SQUARE TABLE's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from HIGH JINKS, that's fer 
sher.  Can SWEET MAGIC's CARLOTTA be more popular than me?  She was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Corianelle -- Smoothless transition...nice.  Too bad it wasn't a cold evening, the
fire burned brightly and was oh so soothing. -- Repulsive Rogan

Nurse Petri -- You's needin any help in healin?  I'm checked out n' checkin out
wounds and strains and such like. -- Billy Hill

Tiannary -- I like you.  Of course I like me too.  Oh well, there's no accounting for
taste. <grin> -- Molly

Pythagorus -- Are you getting uglier or is my eyesight improving?  Ha! -- Tiddles

Tarliss -- Snowfall amongst the bloodletting.  It's those trees down on the avenue
shedding their lighter-than-air leaf covers as the leaves unfurl.  Fighting down on
the open end of the stadium is akin to fighting in a blizzard. -- Marlow

Kool-Aid Drinker -- They tell me it's all wine on the Isle.  Sounds almost as bad as
kool-aid, doesn't it?  Have a good trip. -- Sweet Betsey

Marlow -- I'm putting together a resume to get a job as an instructor of gladiators.
I hope you will contribute a testimonial to my teaching skills? -- Tariliss

Repulsive Rogan -- Perhaps if you wore a bag over your head?  And kept your mouth
shut, those "jokes" do not improve your image. -- Corianelle

Good golly, Miss Molly!  Not the sand!  Anything but the sand. -- Tiannary
P.S.  Well, maybe not ANYTHING....

Broth Zealot -- Can you even reach my face to rip it off? -- Carlotta

Billy -- If you're a kid, you know what that says of your mother, don't you?  Be
careful what words you throw around, some are boomerangs. -- Carlotta

Repulsive Rogan -- Naturally.  I'm part of the Beautify Riztab committee. -- Zagga
the Claw

Marlow -- It depends on the wood used. -- Troth the Moneychanger
