                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I didn't get my hopes up this turn when they announced that I was in the title
fight.  Seeing as how last turn I won it and Bent got to hang out in the big chair.
I finally get to sit in it myself.  Not like when TK had it and we all hung around
and drank a few.  This time I earned the right by beating a fine opponent and mentor.
Going for my 14th win which is one of the requirements for graduation but I do not
have the political points needed so I may be around for a while.  Barring some
tragedy that is.  No challenges this turn, let the chips fall where they may.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CLIFFHOME needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for ZAG?  
U.A.K.'s proud of her after beating THEA DOZZIER and getting 14 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  THEA DOZZIER got smashed by ZAG, and lost 11 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think UTANO should let BENT FENDER be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CLIFFHOME 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.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Utano -- That's exactly what I expected.  And to be honest, it's a relief, too. --
Bent Fender

Zig -- Just what I needed to increase my confidence, hmm?  Oh, well, I *did* survive
it.  That always feels good. -- Kartikaya

The Ambitious Guard I can beat. -- Lum Busby

Zag -- How about if I take you for a ride in my carriage, hmm?  We can drive slowly
along the river in the moonlight and whisper sweet nothings to each other. -- Jitney
Johnny

The Userous Merchant is pushy, but ultimately a fool who will pay the price of his
own greed. -- Thea Dozzier

Kart -- A big black beetle with a horn?  Those are cool! -- Zig

Lum -- Not many can. -- Bertha

Jit -- A ladybug would be my preference. -- Zag
P.S.  Take it easy, eh.  Looked like you were trying add another K to your record.  I
am much nicer than my brother; he would be very mad if something happened to his lil
sis.

Replacement will be here next turn.  He missed his Ox cart from Zukal.  Follows in
the footsteps of TK and Bertha as far as fighting style.  Can't seem to find much
else these days. -- Otis
