                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sophocles put on a rousing show, but it failed to convince, much less defeat,
me.  Shall I be merciful and forgiving and allow him to taste-test my latest fruit-
and-honey confection?  Yes, why not, if nothing else, I can smile when he finds his
fingers invincibly sticky.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RIZTAB to see 
what's new.  Like, DREAMERS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot 
by SWEET MAGIC!  Way to go SWEET MAGIC!  MVP award for EMPEDOCLES?  DREAMERS' proud 
of him after beating MARTOS CHARD and getting 13 points.  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think KISSA BELLE should let EURIPEDES be Duelmaster 
for a while, without fighting about it.  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?  WHO DA MAN? was the most avoided team.  Is a 34-48-0 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why CARDS' been avoiding 
WHO DA MAN? so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can CARDS' ACE be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All RIZTAB ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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 gotta leave.  RIZTAB is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Ah, these dwarves!  They do appreciate good cooking.  Short Peter showed up with a
plate as big as a medium shield in the hopes of getting it filled. -- Carlotta

Fishmonger -- I heard that someone came up with a "fish paste" to be used in filling
pastries.  What a horrible concept! -- Dora Bell

Willie the Rat deserves every bruise he gets!  Trying to steal my candies--the idea!
-- Donnamira, not in the confectionary business for the fun of it
