                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I suppose the Ambitious Guard did his best, but it speaks ill of an arena if
he's all that can be found to contend for the title.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JHANS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  JHANS watched with glee as 
MIDDLE WAY 17 got knocked off top spot by GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, GIRLS 
GIRLS GIRLS' 1st moved them up to 3-0-0 place.  What's with SUMMER SANDERS?  She 
actually beat JHANS' OSKSI NOBLE, and walked away with 10 more points from the fight. 
Laughs were big at BABES while they watched MIRIAM clobber ELLIRIN IMBRAY.  She lost 
3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure JHANS is 
excited about KYRA, the new Duelmaster from BABES.  (remember?)  But when you've seen 
as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  What 
do people see in ELLIRIN IMBRAY?  Hers 9-12-1?  MIDDLE WAY 17 ain't talkin', but 
she's got 42 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Old personals, and sorry for the formatting error last time:

Morngrim Thorth -- Can I charge you with unnecessary roughness?  Or do I get slapped
with an "insufficient armor" charge?  Damn.  I know lots of ballads about tragic
deaths, but I never thought I'd figure in one. -- Ghost of Chaeny Grove

Distort -- No joke!  Lot of that going around.  It's gotten really bad in some
unexpected places. -- Ellirin Imbray

An Ambitious Guard?  For why? -- Abalond Egran

I would echo Abalond's question.  What the heck? -- Carlin Granz

Gracie Nicole -- Wow, just what I wanted for the weekend! -- Eddie Incher

Current personals:

It seems grossly unfair to me that an Enemy Saboteur, so far from telling me where to
find a new antique snuffbox for my collection, snuffed me out!  I will lodge a
protest about this. -- Ghost of Carlin Granz
P.S.  And no, I do NOT want Chaeny to write some stupid folksong about it.

Danette Rogers -- Redheads!  Always too impetuous. -- Ellirin Imbray

Jamie King -- Ah, beautiful women.  Always a pleasing encounter.  Allow me, beautiful
woman, to buy you a drink. -- Eddie Incher

So what was it two weeks ago?  Some kind of "dark of the moon" effect that kept our
deathless comments from being properly formatted?  We insist that they be re-entered!

     Yeahyeahyeah, always the complaints!
