                             Notes from the arena champ.

Interesting happenings here in Willaf.  Many of our warriors must be in the Tourney,
and I sit once again on the Throne.  Until next time, take care all.

                        Zigadenus

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in WILLAF!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for SHIORIME?  
YAMABUSHI's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  FANGS ARDENTE got smashed by BRUAR, and lost 7 points!  
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ZIGADENUS should let SILVIA 
MINNO 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?  PUNNY AMINALS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
650-837-21 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' been avoiding PUNNY AMINALS so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Ooh!  The suspense is killing me!  PUNNY AMINALS has like just one turn 
to Bloodfeud ZIGADENUS of MAXIMUM RESULTS!  Will they do it???  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Zigadenus -- You are a Maximum Duelmaster.  Salute. -- Midas and The Golden
Gladiators

What?  An opher?! -- Midas (embarrassed)

Baabra L -- You continue to make me look like fool's gold, you Wicked witch Of The
East! -- Gold Cache

     Surely Fool's Gold was taller?

Marey -- To be expected, but hurtful, nevertheless. -- Silence Is Golden

Silvia Minno -- I am sure we can keep the scum from rising to the top.  I believe
most are hiding from us. *grinning* -- Zigadenus

Jorja -- Two of three to you.  I salute a more experienced manager.  See you on the
sands. -- Coyote

Midas -- I do like bashers, just haven't done to well with that style.  Jorja seems
to be giving lessons to me lately. *frowning in my drink* -- Coyote

Anybody -- Has anybody ever had a lunger or striker who preffered a low offensive
effort?  Still learning the game. -- Coyote

Zigadenus -- I just couldn't zigzag fast enough, which is odd because I'm usually
good at that.  Still, good fight. -- Silvia Minno

Silence Is Golden -- A base cannard. -- Marey d'Nuit

Gold Cache -- It'd last better if you didn't leave it lying around in plain sight. --
Baabra Lammont

Teakill -- It really depnds on what kind of tea, doesn't it? -- Fangs Ardente

Bruar --I thought at first you might be a brujah, but I see now that you are not, and
I'm glad of that.  Could I interest you in a carouse? -- Cris Croft

Goldbrick -- No, I do NOT know what you mean.  You will have to be explicit.  But
perhaps not in public. -- Baabra Lammont
