                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I do not think I could have fought a better fight!  My very best so far!
That Boy King, despite all his snickers, is one tough cookie.  He'd fit well into The
Family.
     I am not going to say a lot.  Bragging seems unbefitting.  I am an aimer.  We
die.  If we live, we can be great at the top of the game.  I am one that any manager
in the game would covet.  I must be very, very careful.
     I hope to give The Boy King one more chance.  His past record indicates this is
a very, very foolish thing on my part.
                    Don Francis

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  IAYE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  THE WARLOCKS like really 
fought hard to move up to 3rd from 7th.  Way to go!  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 192-169-11 you ask?  (Sure)  GAMEHENDGE's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  Was that a tear I saw in SLEEPS ALL DAY's eye, as 
she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DON FRANCIS fit to be tied!  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.  THE A'S -- LOSERS II was IAYE's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are LENPROS?  THE A'S -- LOSERS II, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, 
is THE BOY KING popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of IAYE!  He's 
got a 21-14-1, is that good?  People were asking me did MOPT REALLY challenge DR 
TRINAIRE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but DR TRINAIRE wants me to write about it since she 
lost to MOPT.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Help On The Way -- I was it! -- Brother J.J.

Thought Policeman -- The RUGS have not treated you at all well.  Two in a row to me.
Not so good for you, but I surely am having fun! -- Prince Polioles

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  May you all bring honor to Iaye via TC's and TV's at The
Fall Mailer. -- Lenpro

Jorja -- I shall send out my eagle with a tracer, hoping it has not gone the way of
the albatross. -- Lenpro

Ispep -- (groan)  You cut me off at the ankles!  That's a rotten thing to do to a
decent, self-respecting... Fence Post

Mapt -- I could have buried you in the sand!  Well, nearly, since you were half-way
down.  Still, that seems, I dunno, a kind of mean thing to do, and today I'm not
feeling mean.  Probably because of the oatmeal cookies.  Very good, and just out of
the oven! -- Dr Trinaire

Baines -- I knew a guy named Baines once.  He was okay.  Some aren't. -- Windsong

Out of Time -- (heavy sigh)  There are days like that. -- Lady Woof
P.S.  Mind you, I *know* people make too much of it, but still, some days...just not
enough.

Franklins Tower -- Weird name for a guy, well, maybe not for a golem.  For somebody
who didn't have a chance, though, you didn't do badly.  Dignity and all that. --
Irish Cream
P.S.  A dog appreciates dignity.

Our congratulations to Sleeps All Day and The Boy King. -- Jorja and the Red Dog Gang

Lady Protector Sleeps All Day -- The "graduating gift" situation remains difficult,
but...could we offer you fine pair of hand-knitted bedsocks? -- Arenamaster Penrue

Lord Protector The Boy King -- Many would say that you are too young for this, but
you "won your spurs," as they say, fair and square.  By the way, how would you feel
about a pair of spurs? -- Arenamaster Penrue
