                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All these people looking for free ads!  I tell them there's no such thing as a
free lunch, and they say, "Who's talking about lunch?  We want advertising."  Nobody
understands a figure of speech these days.  So, listen up!  No free advertising in MY
magazine, but you can get the best rates for the distribution, only five coppers per
word!  Trust me, half Zuwayza and a quarter of the surrounding countryside as far
away even as Malcorn and Jurine reads my ads.  This is a great deal.

                                    Nifty Nickel

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUWAYZA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, TEAM CHAOS had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  Way 
to go THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  MVP award for ANTONIUS?  IDES OF MARCH's proud of him 
after beating MORDANT DESERTER and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  MARCO TITANIUS got smashed by BLACK BELT, and lost 6 points!  Oh, wow, like 
the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all ZUWAYZA.  He got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, SOLSTICE must be pretty gutsy!  She 
challenged the Duelmaster from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Does this gal have a death wish 
or what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome SOLSTICE.  Aren't TEAM CHAOS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said 
ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Drunken Ox?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
IDES OF MARCH?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUWAYZA 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.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ZUWAYZA is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Pete Moss -- I don't know who you convinced to buy your stuff for road surfacing, but
it's the pits!  I can't get any traction at all, not even when I put steel-belted
studded shoes on my horses!  My carriage always seems to be wallowing hubcap deep,
and if I try for a little more speed, the roadbed catches fire!  This is NOT good
paving material. -- Hot Rod

Marcellus -- Ah, a challenge of desperation, was it?  Some managers insist on
constant wins from their gladiators, I know that.  That doesn't make them much of an
ornament to their profession, but what can a gladiator do?  You take the challenge
you're issued and then...you lose?  Incredible bad luck on your part, or...maybe I
dazzled you with my stunning figure and the classic ornamentation on my armor, who
can say?  I'm thinking of adding niello inlay next time.  What do you think? --
Ornament
P.S.  My thanks for the skills.  That was generous of you.

Dan Steppe -- Every time I meet you, I seem to see my future stretching ahead of me
like a semi-arid high-altitude plain.  Odd, that. -- Times
P.S.  And I also often find myself with the bruises one might associate with a horde
of nomadic barbarian warriors thundering over me as though I were said plain.
Unpleasant.

Tiberius -- Listen, you don't have to wear a BLACK belt, you probably aren't ready
for one of those yet, but you need SOME kind of belt.  Using one hand to hold your
pants up during the fight puts you at a handicap.  I think, myself, that it's even
worse than trying to fight with one hand tied behind your back. -- Black Belt

Marco Titanius -- Always a pleasure to have helped out.  But you'd better talk to
your teammate. -- Black Belt

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
