                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have returned!
     Once again I have taken the title from Greth to spend my last turn in Arvat upon
the throne.  It is fitting that he and I have achieved our invitations to the Isle on
the same turn, as it is certain that our place in Arvat lore will be forever linked,
due to our many epic title fights.
     Chances are we will fight one last time this coming week and I am certain that
it will be epic.
     It seems that things are slowing down in Arvat again, and that is a shame.  With
luck, there will be an influx of new blood after the tournament.  We could certainly
use five or so new teams with new rivalries and talent.  Certainly a new manager
would do well here, since my team and our sister team have such a lack of talent.  I
am sure that the other teams here find drafting locals with promise to be just as
hard.
     One more turn, Arvat, and I will be off.

                                                     Fury

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARVAT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, RILL'S GCSC2, 
but DEVIL ADVOCATES was just too good to be stopped.  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, PHILANTHROPISTS!  'Cause they got 4-1-1 and moved up to 4th!  MVP award 
for BISIMWA?  PHILANTHROPISTS' proud of him after beating CAPTURED ORC and getting 15 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GRIPPLE's match with PHIFDEN cost him a loss 
of 11 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome GRETH.  Aren't RILL'S GCSC2 proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  RILL'S GCSC2 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 44-31-1 record really that scary?  I don't know what 
DEVIL ADVOCATES' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
RILL'S GCSC2, that's fer sher.  Can FISHERMAN'S WHARF's LOGGERHEAD be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  EVE ELWON is 
being unfair.  She's challenged down 19 against HERON.  I don't know why they let 
this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in 
ARVAT.  EVE ELWON got 5 points after beating HERON, 19 points below her.  DAMNATION 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged LOGGERHEAD.  
15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought DAMNATION showed 
great skill and promise when he won victory over LOGGERHEAD.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Enough already!  All I've heard lately is 
"Will GEMSTONE BEASTS Bloodfeud GRETH of RILL'S GCSC2 to revenge ROLTON's death?"  I 
mean, who cares?  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.  ARVAT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Fury -- Grr, you give Greth 2 of 3 losses.  Greth angry Greth no get chance for
revenge since Greth go to some place called Isle. -- Greth

All -- Well I guess the commission "saved" me from having to make a difficult
decision.  Greth now has 30FE and I was seriously considering having him sit for one
turn so he could fight in the Champions tournament.  But since he got his invite and
this turn runs right before the tournament, even if he sits he is in AD before the
tourney so wouldn't get to fight in the Champs.  Oh well, guess I'll see how he does
in the Freshman tourney, where I expect he will have trouble with those uber scum. --

Mimosa -- Best 4 out of 7 now? -- Roland

Justice -- There was no justice there in my opinion. -- Demmell

Sarlow -- I think I've got you figured out.  Perhaps I can occasionally get a win

Demetren -- If that isn't just LIKE a Rirorni.  No respect for an endangered species,
no consideration for someone who's already had a long day of wading in creeks looking
for fish, just...WHOP.  Heck. -- Heron

Phifden -- You elves are really strange.  Going around ringing bells during the
fight, and chanting, I dunno what, weird words.  I bet you don't like peppers,
either. -- Peter Pepper

Gelen -- With that record, you should be one of us. -- Sarlow

I.M. Ceytin -- No doubt. -- Gripple

Gelen -- You need to eat more peppers.  They're full of vitamins. -- Peter Pepper
