                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I will have little to say, but I thought perhaps you might be interested in my
gladiatorial life history.
     11-17(+1)-5-14-21-5-11 mode WS (Consortium Waste)
     12-0-0 in arena
     30-15-1-1 in tournaments
     Two TV's - Dead Apprentices, Adepts (runner up)
     Masters in att/par; Adex in rip/init/def; Expert in decise
     Thought my faves might be SC/mod/vl
     But they were MS/mod/mod
Perhaps we shall give DM106 a try, but retirement is more likely.
               Good luck to everyone.
               Chief Tomtom

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out IAYE to see 
what's new.  Too bad, CRYSTAL PALACE, but WORLDLY DECLINE was just too good to be 
stopped.  Uncool, CRYSTAL PALACE.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to 
fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  WORLDLY DECLINE like really fought hard 
to move up to 1st from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for FRENCH VETO?  WORLDLY 
DECLINE's proud of him after beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and getting 17 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE's match with AMBITIOUS GUARD cost it a 
loss of 11 points!  GARCIA thinks his 13-8-1 and studly character is good enough to 
face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was that a tear I saw in GARCIA's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't CHIEF TOMTOM fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of CIRCUS MAXIMUS must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
I don't know what LENPROS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from CIRCUS MAXIMUS, that's fer sher.  Like, is FENCE POST popular, or what?  
He was challenged the most in all of IAYE!  He's got a 5-10-0, is that good?  
Speaking of challenging 39 points above did you hear about MR SELF DESTRUCT of CIRCUS 
MAXIMUS vs. GAMEHENDGE's TALKIN' CAMEL WALK?  (And how was that intro!) MR SELF 
DESTRUCT was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating TALKIN' CAMEL WALK and 
getting 26 points.  CIRCUS MAXIMUS must be proud, for sure!  I'm not so sure SGT. 
SCHMID knew all the facts when he challenged WALT WEISS of THE A'S -- LOSERS II.  I 
saw SGT. SCHMID stumbling and dribbling at The Dragon's Blood Inn last week...  Do 
you think SGT. SCHMID knew something before he challenged WALT WEISS?  He got a win 
and 22 points.  What will the guy do next?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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

Cell Blabber -- Too much for me!  And your secrets are safe with me too.  (I have
practice.) -- Don Francis

The Boy King -- That wasn't fair!  It was my challenge!  But I guess that since you
are a king and I'm a mere lord.... -- Lord Walton

Rainy Rain -- Add a little fog and mist and there you go. -- Lady Huntsman

Garbo -- I hear you were "hot"--in your day. (wink) -- Sgt Schmid

Big Mac -- Great fight!  A salute to you. -- Chief Tomtom

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Lenpro

Unscathed -- The only reason you aren't scathed after that match is because you're a
golem.  A non-golem would have been scathed like anything.  Totally scathed. --
Rishteke

The Clear -- I'll get a sunburn.  See if I don't! -- Bigfoots, worried about freckles

Queen Chinee -- What is this, inscrutable orientality? -- Fence Post
P.S.  I thought queens weren't all that hot on patience.  "Off with his head" and
stuff.

Sunlight Splatrz -- I can't help, I LIKE sunlight, especially filtered through a tree
with a breeze making the sun-and-shadow bit shift a little.  I just can't seriously
bring myself to hit you.  Well, not hard enough, anyway. -- Dr Trinaire

Hoo.  The Fratthfan Noble ith Aruaki.  Thith ith jutht wrong. -- Hithelliene

Lenpros -- Either that, or the postman was holding your strategies for ransom. --
Leeta, Red Dog Gang

Ed. -- We did TRY to send the rain your way, but it got sidetracked about three-
quarters of the way across and caused floods and stuff.  Dangerous business,
interfering with the weather. -- Dr Trinaire

     I appreciate the attempt.  We did finally get some, but I'm not sure it was the
     same lot. -- Ed.
     P.S.  At least the chili is okay so far!

Looks like this is Graduation City this month.  Congratulations to all. -- Red Dog
Gang

11 August 2006
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
