                             Notes from the arena champ.

      You are definitely mad, Giglie.  This is, you understand, above and beyond your
residence in the Madtown stable.  It's...innate.  Anyone who can stand around laying
bets with the stewards about which cloud will pass the arena's flagpole first, this
being in the middle of the fight, is, at the least, eccentric.  And I don't think
you're the kind to do "least," are you?
      So there it is.
      And here am I.

                                     Beltran Foss

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LYRATILAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, THE MIDDLE 
WAY 4 had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MADTOWN!  Way to 
go MADTOWN!  The guys at NOT FOR ME like really pulled together to get a 3-2-2 this 
turn, moving up by 4.  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in 
all LYRATILAN.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) PAINLESS 
thinks his 12-11-2 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  
Any bets?  Was that a tear I saw in PAINLESS' eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't BELTRAN FOSS fit to be tied!  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.  The warriors of NOT FOR ME must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are FUNKY FOLK?  NOT FOR ME, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  People were asking me did THE GREATEST REALLY 
challenge SAM SUNG?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but SAM SUNG wants me to write about it since he was 
subdued by THE GREATEST.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear FUNKY FOLK sent ROBIN BANKS to the Dark Arena.  What, is that 
like not well-lit, or what?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be 
out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Decimate -- Well, to say you made that fairly easy is an understatement.  I
appreciate a practice dummy as much as the next person.  But next time, make sure you
have a supplemental insurance policy.  I know the one the commission offers isn't too
good. -- Bikini Line 

Beltran Foss -- Hopefully my challenge will get through this time and I'll be able to
make a go of it this time.  Third time is a charm hopefully. -- Painless

The Greatest -- Definitely at least ONE of the greatest students.  I like a man who
is willing to learn.  It shows something or other. -- Xeno Yohl
P.S.  So why didn't you teach ME anything?

Wow, is that Ruthless Jaywalker MEAN, or what?  Ouch, ouch. -- Erhlie Fay

The Virginal Concubine has a LOT to learn about interacting with other people.  But
I've agreed to work with her on this. -- Davia Hannas

Colonoscopy -- (horrified look)  I am in FULL agreement with your manager on that
one! -- Rolph Tupp

You guys need to fight each other more. -- Polite Beggar, Virginal Concubine, and
Ruthless Jaywalker
P.S.  We want to go on vacation.

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
