                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finn the Gray-bearded, Veteran Mercenary.  He's an old dear, really.  And he has
such good and instructive--but still entertaining, I thought I'd never stop laughing!
--to tell.  I think I'll bake him a cake.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for WILLAF.  MVP award for BAABRA LAMMONT?  
PUNNY AMINALS' proud of her after beating SILENCE IS GOLDEN and getting 14 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  CRIS CROFT's match with GOLD CACHE cost him a loss of 8 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think SILVIA MINNO should 
let KHALHUMS DWARF be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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.  The warriors of YAMABUSHI must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from YAMABUSHI, that's fer sher.  Like, is BAABRA LAMMONT popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  She's got a 14-13-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All WILLAF ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Hirokawa -- Are you hiding from us and our bloodfeud?  Are Yamamamas always such
cowards? -- The Golden Gladiators

Stoga Steel -- Whew!  Had I not been lucky to beat you, the Golden Glads would have
had an opher.  Midas thanked me! -- Golden Eagle

Marey -- You just don't like silence, do you? -- Silence Is golden

Baarbra -- You cached me out!  Cad! -- Gold Cache

Congrats to Silvia Minnow, the Duelmaster. -- Midas (the envious)

Silence Is Golden -- What the heck?  I had the title last time, I won my fight, and
SILVIA is the Duelmaster this time?  Something's really wrong with this picture. --
Marey D'Nuit

Marey -- What's wrong is, *I* was Duelmaster LAST time, too, but you USURPED me, or
at least my column.  I'm a little annoyed with that. -- Silvia

Silvia -- Blame it on Jorja.  She wasn't paying attention. -- Marey

Gold Cache -- I like friends with deep pockets.  What shall we shop for next? --
Baabra Lammont

Bruar -- Nothing personal, but my mouth was bored, so I bit you. -- Fangs Ardente
P.S.  You should've just let me have your shoe, it would've been enough.

Damsel Dacy -- Impressively tall.  I like a woman who can get her OWN dishes off the
top shelves. -- Cris Croft

We salute Willaf's tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals
