                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Apparently there was a great deal standing between me and Champions glory.
After my 1-3 performance at the Summer FtF, I am suitably humbled.
     I have been told that I am too skilled for Freshmen and too Strikery for ADM and
Challengers.  That doesn't leave me with many tourney options left.  My final chance
for glory seems to be in the Dark Arena, so I will be going there to battle it out
with those legendary monsters until I am sent to the Isle of the Eye.  I look forward
to the challenge and hope to survive to see my graduation day.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TALCAMA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  ARDUIN GRIMOIRE like really 
fought hard to move up to 4th from 7th.  Way to go!  MVP award for SLIPPERY MICKEY?  
CENTER FOR OLDS' proud of it after beating RUTH and getting 27 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  RUTH's match with SLIPPERY MICKEY cost her a loss of 8 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  STONE GOLEM knows 
this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, BABY ON BOARD, leaving SEA DOGS in 
mourning.  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?  SEA DOGS was TALCAMA's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why SHEPHERDS' been avoiding SEA 
DOGS 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?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Please welcome Driftwood, the Sea Dogs' newest warrior.  He will only be fighting a
single turn to prepare himself for the October Apprentices, but will return again
after that, hopefully with more teammates. -- One Armed Bandit

     Going to collect them on the beach, is he?  Well, fine.

Frog Zombie -- If it is within my power, you will pay. -- Assur
