                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Tavelshan Kethal, I am happy to have been of service in relieving you of that
niggling feeling that you do not belong on the throne.  Anytime you need such
assistance in the future, please let me know.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in NIATOLI ISLAND!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, SUMMERTEETH, 
but SEA DOGS was just too good to be stopped.  HALLOWIENERS like really fought hard 
to move up to 2nd from 6th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, 
SEA DOGS!  'Cause they got 4-0-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award for WARTLESS WITCH?  
HALLOWIENERS' proud of her after beating ELT and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  THE IMPOSER's match with FRANK N STEIN cost him a loss of 12 points!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  HULL SCRUBBER stopped TAVELSHAN KETHAL dead 
in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Don't Drop Inn?  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 warriors of SUMMERTEETH must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
HALLOWIENERS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
SUMMERTEETH, that's fer sher.  Like, is KIELANDOR VENANSINDE popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of NIATOLI ISLAND!  He's got a 13-12-0, is that good?  
Speaking of challenging 29 points above did you hear about GRU-SON OF GROTT of BIG 
LAKE BANDITS vs. THE SEWING CIRCLE's KIELANDOR VENANSINDE?  (And how was that intro!) 
Like, was that some fighting on GRU-SON OF GROTT's part, or what?  And he got 27 
points out of it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor KIELANDOR VENANSINDE.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All NIATOLI ISLAND 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 gotta leave.  NIATOLI ISLAND is like such a dump, and you 
guys smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

The Sewing Circle -- I am sorry for the passing of Hassimor Shomur.  My intention was

accidental. -- Fishwife

Our congratulations to Jerk O'Lantern. -- Jorja and the Sewing Circle

Hull Scrubber -- That's what I expected. -- Tavelshan Kethal

I never liked Kung-Fu Masters. -- Kurelleu Zien

Fishwife -- Did I ask for this?  Honestly, did I? -- the annoyed ghost of Hassimor
Shomur

Assassins, ha.  Easy. -- Karinirina

And I will second my teammate's evaluation of the social acceptability of Kung-Fu
Masters.  Bustards, every one. -- Kielandor Venansinde
