                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahhh, seventeen down, two to go.  When I TC the Adept's tourney at the next mail in,
I'll be sure to thank Chucker in my speech.  Just two more, big guy, and then it is
time for a few months rest.  Just two more....

I am, and continue to be, your freak duelmaster.

-- Jackson

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SOLVEN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for ANTHON?  
KELLUMBO'S KIDS' proud of him after beating DOLBY JOSSEL and getting 18 points.  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  JACKSON stopped CHUCKER ISTTA dead in his tracks! 
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.  Like, is IO OLDEND popular, or what?  She was challenged the most 
in all of SOLVEN!  She's got a 8-4-1, is that good?  JEROME must not be a good enough 
fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged IO OLDEND.  10 is a big difference.  
(Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought JEROME showed great skill and promise 
when he was bested by IO OLDEND.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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

Dolby -- Hehe, it just gets closer and closer every time we fight.  I especially
enjoyed the little jab with the fist to your head.  I'll be challenging Oldend this
turn, so enjoy beating up on poor little Anthon. -- Jerome

Anthon!  You're up, punk!  Get in there, with all three of your fights, and see what
you can do against Dolby and her 34 fights. -- Kellumbo
P.S.  Hehe, has there ever been a bigger fe difference in basic?

Chawlie -- It is about time one of the Kids finally beat you. -- Anthon

Fratsfan Noble and Friendly Constable -- It is good to see you stand ins got the memo
that you are not supposed to win.  Much better. -- DK

Jackson -- Sweet thing, you are NEVER a freak.  Do not think of yourself that way.

You're a beautiful, skilled, intelligent woman, always paying attention, and one of
my better students. -- Chucker Istta
P.S.  Unfortunately, you seem to have left me without a leg to stand on!

Jerome -- (heavy sigh)  I really need to meet WOMEN around here.  I don't mind
playing poker with you, that twitch of your eyebrow is a perfect tell, but I want to
date a WOMAN.  Dinner, dancing, a little cuddling, you know?  Put your mind to it and
introduce me to someone. -- Dolby Jossel

Kung-Fu?  Bah, that isn't my shtick.  I'm a slice-and-dice type.  Or hack and slash,
as the case might be.  Minced Kung-Fu Master, what a rush, eh? -- Io Oldend

Anthon -- Well, listen, it's like this.  You get a win from me just to welcome you to
the arena, okay?  And then you LOSE every fight you're matched with me.  Pay
attention, remember this. -- Chawlie Istta

That Beggar was NOT Polite.  Not even a whisker of polite. -- Garbin Mooris

Jerome -- Sure.  Let's get past the holiday season first.  Maybe turn 577? -- Dolby
Jossel
P.S.  Make sure to remind me!

Kellumbo -- That kind of thing happens.  Considering how many gladiators I'm running,
I get relatively few deaths.  I can stand it. -- Jorja

Kellumbo -- We get bored doing it the same old way all the time. -- Arenamaster Kayr
