                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Really, this is pathetic.  We went five and oh today, and only ONE fight was
against a sort-of-managed opponent.  The sad decline of a once-great arena.
     Officially, I should mention my fight against the Convicted Assassin.  I do not
consider it worthy of particular comment.  He fought poorly, attempted to trash the
environment, and ended up confused, neither teaching nor learning.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZUWAYZA to see 
what's new.  Too bad, MAN OR BEAST?, but THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for MAGIC TODAY?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' proud of him after 
beating VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  TAXES 
DUE's match with MORDANT DESERTER cost her a loss of 15 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DESERT PLANTS 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!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 651-762-21 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are MAN OR BEAST??  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  BEAR GRYLLS is being unfair.  He's 
challenged down 33 against HEMLOCK.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  
(I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in ZUWAYZA.  BEAR 
GRYLLS got 2 points after beating HEMLOCK, 33 points below him.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Everyone has problems, but why did MAN OR 
BEAST? send MOOSE JOHNSON to the Dark Arena?  He had a 3-0-0, and I thought he looked 
neat on the sands...  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

eclipse of a moon in the third quarter is held to be impossible. -- Farmers Almanac
P.S.  He tried to riposte, and demonstrated to all who watched that captured orcs
don't have the brains for that.

I don't see why people got so upset just because I turned the Fratsfa Slave into a
chihuahua.  They're all dogs anyway, and I thought he needed taking down a few feet,
besides. -- Magic Today

I defeated the Dangerous Criminal because that was my job, but, really, I do NOT see
why one should punish the hunters of out-of-season deer.  At least, not HERE.  There
are more deer in this state than there are people!  And, although they are generally
better behaved, they're still pests. -- Missouri Wildlife
