                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I cannot say it's been the most thrilling of rides.  For the past twelve
fights I have fought one of two gladiators, Bettey Decker or Betty Fours.  Sadly,
there was no one else who was worthy enough to face me.  This being my last turn in
this arena makes me excited for one reason only:  Next week I will face someone new,
finally.
     I graduate with four ratings, an Expert in riposte, initiative, an Advanced
Master in attack and an Advanced Expert in defense.  My numbers go as so:
11-7-8-21-8-8-21.  Quarterstaff is my favorite weapon, lo/mod, bash tactic and I
learned init the most.

                                          -- Seether

P.S.  Thanks for the care package, Bettey Decker!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CALEAM needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for RISELLA 
PILAF?  GOLDEN CANYON's proud of her after beating DENAI and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  DENAI's match with RISELLA PILAF cost her a loss of 18 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SEETHER stopped BETTY FOURS dead in 
hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask 
me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of GOLDEN CANYON 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 WRATHMEN?  GOLDEN CANYON, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Jorja -- I believe you've earned the right to a break from personals anytime you wish
to take it.  No explanation or apology needed. -- Kharadmon

Risella Pilaf -- You Golden Canyon clan are always cooking for everyone else.  How
about I cook dinner for you? -- Ji

Eglantine Nogs -- WOW!  That brew of yours has quite a kick! -- Katryna

Ruthless Jaywalker -- You can't cross here! -- Denai

The Honest Merchant -- An I suppoes that the Truthful Politician would be a cousin?
-- Meysin

     How did you know?

Happy Peasant -- I don't think your family tree forks enough. -- Aeryn

Our congratulations to Seether.  We'll throw a big going-away party, with lots of
eats. -- Jorja and the Golden Canyon chefs

Aeryn -- Experience gained in losing is valuable, possibly more so than that gained
by winning.  It teaches humility, and competence in the face of adversity. -- Risella
Pillaf

Denai -- It is true that it's almost impossible to get too much rum in the nog. --
Eglantine Nogs

Seether -- Ah, you liked the sausage rolls, did you?  Good!  I'll make up a special
batch for you to take with you when you go to the Isle. -- Bettey Decker

That whole business of "extra-virgin" olive oil being superior is just nonsense.  I
find it, and HER, rather greasy, myself. -- Miss Catty

Perfect!  I was making up a batch of pastries, and there was just... something flat
about them.  Then the arenamaster brought me a bottle of Noble Assassin, one of the
finer brandies, and it was JUST what I needed. -- Betty Fours
P.S.  I might even put some in the pastries.

Ji -- You silly boy!  You aren't supposed to eat that fast.  It can't be good for you
in the long run. -- Risella Pilaf

Katryna -- My DEAR girl!  THAT was not the nog, that was the bottle of rum I was
planning to ADD to the nog.  Gruesome, indeed. -- Eglantine Nogs

Ji -- (ineffably smug look) -- Kish of the Purple Tree

Aeryn -- Funeral?  What funeral?  He's dead, or at least that's what we were told.
The dead don't care about things of life. -- Family and Friends of Marngei

Aeryn -- Watch out for my family and so-called "friends."  They're incredibly greedy.
-- Marngei of Rithakar, Bonded Scribe, resurrected

Ji -- (smug look, forget ineffable) -- Bardo Wolfson, the One Who Walks Everywhere

Meysin -- Of course not.  A Convicted Thief from the next arena down the river comes
and steals my skills as fast as I learn them. -- Dacian Lorvath, reluctant volunteer

Katryna -- Ah...?  I'm not a traffic constable.  I believe jaywalkers ARE a traffic
problem. -- Bobbit Stonewall, Constable

Miss Catty -- It does you no good to bring soap to the arena, you know.  I am quite
clean, not at all oily.  I suspect your time would be better spent dressing salads.
The gods know someone should!  Naked salads are offensive. -- Saralee, Chaste Female
Companion

Betty Fours -- You seem to hold your brandy better than any other woman I've met.  I
was trying to, well, loosen you up at the least and if possible render you, um,
unable to resist.  It doesn't seem to have worked. -- Toreo Filis of Ti, Assassin in
Good Standing

Denai -- Caltrops?  CALTROPS?  That's OUTRAGEOUS! -- Bardo Wolfson, the One Who Walks
Everywhere

Meysin -- If you didn't like the horse, you could have just brought him back. --
Honest John Treve

Aeryn -- Okay.  I don't mind. -- Kitty Lee, Enormously Happy Peasant
