                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Whoa Nelly!  What a surprise to see Loris walking out on the sands last turn!
This has got me thinking.  The utter chutzpah of it requires some kind of special
commemoration.
     Sven has asked me to create a special dish to honor Golderie, but I think I must
put my talents to honoring the lovely Loris.  And besides, Sven insisted on a dish
using root vegetables and nuts.  And as much as I like baked turnips, onions, and
peanuts it has already been done.
     No, no, no.  Loris deserves much better.  Considering the Golden Canyon's recent
fascination with shell fish and melons, I thought that perhaps a shrimp dish would be
in order, but then I figured no way.  With her diminutive size, Loris may take this
the wrong way.  Hey! As a Half-elf I'm only an inch taller, so I understand, you
know.  No, this dish had to be really different.  I'm thinking of a knock-out side
dish to accompany a lackluster entrie.  Yes!  A medley of squashes would be perfect.
Personally, I love 'em.  "Squash Loris" it shall be.  Now, on to the stove and
culinary perfection! 

Ta for now, 

Cap'n Crunch

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CALEAM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  DOC LEGRAND'S LAB showed 
CALEAM what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0. 
What's with ARTHUR BEYER?  He actually beat GOLDEN CANYON's MAUREEN, and walked away 
with 25 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at STEEL CRUSADE.  SVEN BLUETOOTH 
lost 10 points to GOLDERIE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SVEN BLUETOOTH will 
provide more easy wins...  I'm sure CALEAM is excited about LORIS KEY, the new 
Duelmaster from GOLDEN CANYON.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, MEDAL OF HONOR VI!  In my day, no team with a 5-2-0 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, STEEL CRUSADE?  What do people see in PIKE?  His 9-6-0?  GOLDEN 
CANYON ain't talkin', but he's got 46 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  ARTHUR BEYER killed MAUREEN, and expects revenge from GOLDEN 
CANYON.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  Many a warrior has met 
his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
CALEAM is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Scarlet Skink -- No!  You can NOT have pimentos!  Or maraschino cherries, either!
And especially, not BOTH.  Gods, you are insane!  "Atomic Fireball Stirfry"?  Gods,
no way.  I wouldn't touch that with a ten-foot spatula! -- Maureen

Guardian Naga -- Hmm, not a bad vintage.  Fruity, but mysterious, almost a hint of
spice.  I could do something with this.... -- Pike
P.S.  Maybe marinate a gecko.

Cap'n Crunch -- I love that apple crisp!  Delicious, and so crunchy. -- Loris Key

Sven Bluetooth -- That was GENIUS!  Don't tell me what kind of fish it was, but the
way you sliced it thin and then fried it and that SAUCE...!  Genius. -- Golderie

Arthur Beyer -- Er... mineral water?  Sorry, not my thing at all. -- Clemmie

Cap'n Crunch -- Taking a break sounds wonderful, especially since we have to be on
the road this week.  But we'll be up to the mark by next cycle. -- Golderie

Caylon -- Not exactly stir-fried melon, no, that WOULD be strange.  I was thinking
more of a fruit compote, gently warmed in a rich sauce and topped with whipped cream?
-- Clemmie

Cap'n Crunch -- Ah, an AGED and RARE ale, is he?  Sounds like just the thing, then!
-- Loris Key

Ptui!  Gecko taste bad...couldn't finsh. -- Up-Chucky
