                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Stonefish, that was a surprise.  I thought you had an unbreakable grip on the
position of Duel2Dude.  And I rather wish you had.  What can I say?  Nothing truly
worthy of passing on comes to my mind.  If I'm here next time, perhaps I will have
thought of something.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZORPUNT.  Like, KRILL CAVALRY had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GANG GRENE-BAX!  Way to go GANG 
GRENE-BAX!  The guys at AUSSIE KILLERS like really pulled together to get a 2-0-0 
this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for GROX?  GANG GRENE-BAX's proud of him after 
beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
TRINA LARK got smashed by KING BROWN SNAKE, and lost 8 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think PINE LEAF should let CONVICTED ASSASSIN be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
ZORPUNT's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of GANG GRENE-BAX must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
MONEY PIT's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GANG 
GRENE-BAX, that's fer sher.  Can KRILL CAVALRY's TRINA LARK be more popular than me?  
She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  STONEFISH must not be a 
good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged BILL POOLE.  13 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought STONEFISH showed great skill 
and promise when he defeated BILL POOLE.  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.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ZORPUNT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
