                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well all, I wish I could stick around a bit longer.  I have enjoyed my brief
return to Chimlevtal.  But it seems there are bigger and better things awaiting me in
my next destination.  I would hope the best for my team mates here and for my manager
Stinger.  However, the recruits I have seen come to my manager just don't measure up.
I guess the dark arena will be a busy place for a while to come.
     I have come to be fond on the long spear.  I have permission to give it a go in
the arena on my way out.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out CHIMLEVTAL to 
see what's new.  Like, THE STORM REAVERS had to be so embarrassed when they got 
kicked off #1 spot by BAD NEWS BEES!  Way to go BAD NEWS BEES!  Uncool, THE STORM 
REAVERS.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em 
for training practice!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, THE FARSEERS!  
'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 3rd!  Talk about yer big time losers!  XANDAR 
got smashed by DUTIFUL, and lost 12 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think BUZZ-BUZZ should let WAKIZASHI be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said CHIMLEVTAL's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  THE STORM REAVERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 128-170-17 
record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE FARSEERS?  THE STORM 
REAVERS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is FLYBY popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
CHIMLEVTAL!  He's got a 4-3-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when 
I found out THE FOOL challenged CORWIN.  After all, haven't THE FARSEERS and MORE 
DESTROYERS had a long standing duel in CHIMLEVTAL?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but CORWIN wants me to write about it since he was beat by THE FOOL.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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

Middle Way 7 -- Sorry for your loss of Nile Parton.  Didn't mean to kill her. --
Corwin

Panda Ross -- Yeah I manage a team in Arvat.  My son wanted to be a gladiator so he
joined More Destroyers. -- Daikkan

The Farseers -- Welcome to Chimlevtal Arena! -- More Destroyers

Buzz-Buzz -- Good luck with your new home. -- The Catalyst

Kiwi Connection -- Wow, 80% record.  Good start. -- The Catalyst

Bumble -- Thank you for the lesson.  I will have to work myself hard before
attempting it again.  But I do plan to try again. -- Dutiful

Rondor Sendal -- You must hit harder than I had anticipated. -- Shrewd

Panda Ross -- Seems such a long way to go just to crumple. -- Patience

Toren Gorefiend -- Ouch!  Not a good spot for a guy to bleed from.  Any permanant
damage? -- Rosemary

Heather -- Such a hard pace to keep up.  You must be more careful next time. -- The
Fool

All -- How can I determine a warrior's potential to grow if they start slow and do
not initially win fights?  Should I just keep letting them run and hope they learn
enough to become winners? -- The Catalyst mgr. The Farseers

We congratulate Buzz-Buzz. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

The Fool -- Afraid I can't help you out now, I have suffered the fate of those who
are too proud and complacent.  Four-one-oh-one, and I was the one doing the dying. --
Ghost of Nile Parton
P.S.  From a quick review of your fight, though... not really.  Armor and weapons
were suitable, and you were doing the right stuff.  Maybe you need more CN?

Grom Hellscream -- I had to get you before you could unloose that scream, right? --
Lumus Nelp

Corwin -- That totally ruined my day, you know. -- Ghost of Nile Parton

Shrewd -- That's fine, and I wouldn't want to go horse-trading against you, but it
looks to ME like you need to work on "tough." -- Rondor Sendal

Flyby -- It was those new sticky strips, I think.  No one ever made 'em transparent
before.  Took you by surprise, didn't it? -- Mandin Orwell

Patience -- Train your CN, there are no skills to be burned there.  And put on
heavier armor, maybe. -- Panda Ross
P.S.  I wonder whose weapon I've got?
