                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  THIS time, I have and deserve the throne.  I beat the Kung-Fu Master fair
and square.  Uh...more triangular, maybe.  But still, I won.  So why, then, is it
Dark Chocolate who's graduating?  Granted, that's the best chocolate, but still.  Why
HER?  All right, all right, I don't have fourteen wins yet.  Big deal.  The
Commission is so PICKY.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out IAYE to see 
what's new.  MVP award for BERTHA?  THE WARLOCKS' proud of her after beating HAPPY 
PEASANT and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MESSENGER BIRD got 
smashed by VISITING ORC, and lost 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else! 
SONORA SARA stopped VETERAN MERCENARY dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  IAYE is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Tela -- (a trifle smugly)  You can gnaw on me all you want, but sooner or later, I
get TO you.  As I did this time.  I am too robust for a colorless little thing like
you. -- Lady Protector Dark Chocolate
P.S.  Very low/very low, SHORTSWORD?  Are they out of their MINDS?  What do they
think I am, MILK-sop chocolate?

Bertha -- A CAT?  (sneezes violently)  I'b allergig.  Go away. -- Willeta

The River -- "The" river?  Which one?  Come on, you can tell ME.  I always wanted to

know which river is THE river. -- Freeda
P.S.  Are you by any chance also the "bathtub" that has formidable foes in it?  Maybe
that's why you're so muddy?  Or is the word I'm looking for murky?  Whatever.

Walt Weiss -- Your team name is too long.  This can be a serious handicap, as it
prejudices the arenamaster against you, and you don't EVER want the arenamaster for
an enemy.  Not here in Basic Training, anyway. -- Gissanniah

of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
