                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dear White Spider, you are so thoughtful.  A win, three skills, the title, and
my graduation notice, what better gift could you offer?  Well, besides diamonds,
which are, of course, a girl's BEST friend.  But you're definitely right up there in
second place!

                                     Erhlie Fay

P.S.  Oh, drat.  Born to scum.  Low/very low.  The shame!  Will I ever live it down?

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in LYRATILAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  The guys at ERRATA like really 
pulled together to get a 3-2-1 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for HIPPOLYTA?  
AMAZONS' proud of her after beating MASTIF and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  VINCE got smashed by SHEZA BANSHEE, and lost 7 points!  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome GIGLIE.  Aren't 
MADTOWN proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of ERRATA must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why GREAT UNKNOWN's been avoiding ERRATA so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is CORAL EDEN popular, or what?  
She was challenged the most in all of LYRATILAN!  She's got a 9-5-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey, warriors get killed by other warriors, not by their manager sending 
them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with JOE KERR's 3-1-1, FUNKY FOLK?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Erhlie Fay -- Why won't you just graduate?!?!?  LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!! -- White Spider

Demsiado Pesado -- Now that wasn't very nice of you.  Bad style matchup for me, but
come on.  That was a little unpleasent. -- Ghost of Death Wish

Chavin de Huantar -- I guess that was payback for the perfect record.  Oh well.
Paybacks can be a bit...well, we'll just say they're rough at times. -- Crown Royal

Saint -- Now that you're back in the saddle (So to speak) can I please have an
updated list of managers in our arena.  Thanks!! -- Apex, Mgr. of Barhoppers and
Barhoppers II

     This is what I have.  These are teams listed in last turn's newsletter.  Any
     updates/corrections are always appreciated. -- The Saint, keeper of lists

just know it. -- Sheza Banshee

Tequilla Gorilla -- Bold challenge, but a little foolish, too. -- Coral Eden

Crown Royal -- Aren't you the smart one.?  Not smart enough. -- Chavin De Huantar

Dingo -- I lost to a dog?!  <sob>  Life can't get any worse, can it?  <sob>  Somebody
end my misery!  <sob> -- Xocotl

Death Wish -- And so it goes. -- Desmiado Pesado

Shooter Girl -- What?  I can't BELIEVE you suggested that.  What have you been

smoking?  Or, since you're barhopper, drinking?  Whatever it is, count me out.  I
have this secret ambition to survive and graduate, see?  And it requires that I keep
"clean." -- Trellin Xiss

Sheza Banshee -- Gods, woman!  You've got a voice that would curdle milk for miles!
Keep your mouth shut, why don't you? -- X. Rolph Tupp
P.S.  Leave the biting to me, okay?  I have experience and can do it with style.
P.P.S.  Which is to say, SILENTLY, among other things.

Ambitious Guard.  One skill.  (sigh)  He was a Bad Dog, if that term can be properly
applied to a werewolf.  And, after all, why not? -- Ekbard Ingorish

A Cult Member?  Isn't this..."old hat"?  Surely I could have drawn somebody who at
LEAST knew how to fight. -- Doberum Hannis the disgusted

Noachian -- You get around quite a bit yourself, and it's always a pleasure to detect
your presence, despite your perverse refusal to disavow Kjarran. -- Jorja/Leeta

Demsiado Pesado -- If it won't get you into trouble, it will be my pleasure to feed
you.  Want to go up to Caleam and test the latest new recipes from the Cook-Off? --
Doberum Hannis

Mastiff -- I warned the Guildmaster!  I TOLD him I couldn't defeat a big dog, that
I'd get bitten, that I wouldn't get so much as an old dry bone, but did he LISTEN?
No!  Nobody ever listens to me! -- Shaldee, Polite Beggar
P.S.  Next time, I'm going to be RUDE.

Doberum Hannis -- You PIG!  You...HUMAN!  I want to see your entrails steaming on the
altar while the rest of you swings from the Sacred Tree! -- Korhoun, Member in Good
Standing of the Cult of the Twisted Tree

Ekbard Ingorish -- Did no one ever point out to you that gloating is RUDE?
Especially at the beginning of the fight.  After all, I might have drawn the long
straw this time and been the standby allowed to use my full ability and WIN a fight.
You couldn't know. -- Wolfgang Talman, Ambitious Guard
P.S.  Unless that cursed Handicapper, Igan B. Wyrd gave you private and privileged
information, which he should NOT have done but he just goes his own way.  The gods
know Arenamaster Jyo makes NO effort to keep him in line.

Keg Stand -- Ah, well, I didn't expect to defeat you.  The Beer Keg stylists are
tough.  Well done. -- Robard Wolf, Master of Kung-Fu

Heinz 57?  Worthless on the hoof, but he did splatter nicely. -- Dark Champion of
Lyratilan

Arenamaster Jyo -- I should have been allowed to eat Spitz and Boxer after killing
them.  It was wasteful to bury good meat. -- Martin Shew, translating for the Lizard
Man
