                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings all it is so nice to be your duelmaster.  Taking the place a such a
great warrior before me, I don't know if I can fill his shoes.
     Thank you all.

Ipswich

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  XOCHITHLAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, DARQUE 
ANGELS, but KIWI CONNECTION was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for UDARN 
VOYL?  THE MIDDLE WAY's proud of him after beating BLACK GUARD and getting 23 points. 
Talk about yer major upsets!  BLACK GUARD's match with UDARN VOYL cost him a loss of 
20 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  IPSWICH stopped FALLON GRIMM 
dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of KIWI CONNECTION must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what DARQUE ANGELS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from KIWI CONNECTION, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when MALICE killed TERROR-DACTYL.  So he had 
a 8-8-0, that's no excuse!  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

The Fallen One -- So long and thanks for all the fish.  I mean skills. -- Ipswich

Malice -- You don't seem all that mean. -- Asquith

You ever wonder about Alarond the Scribe?  "A quiet spymaster gets poor."  I don't
THINK so!  A talkative spymaster is likely to get assassinated.  That's what *I*
think. -- Udarn Voyl
P.S.  Likewise, for what he chooses to say, always picking at people.  Practically
sneering, although I suppose he isn't as bad as Snide Clemens.  Which isn't saying
much.

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

I wonder if we could sic the Rirorni Assassin on a spy reporter?  Maybe he'd actually
be good for something.  Might turn his life right around. -- Fallon Grimm

Israfel -- You're an IT?  How awful.  Was it the Serevadans?  I've heard they
sometimes do, um, that--you know, to, well, slaves.  I don't suppose anyone else
would stand still for it! -- Bettina Chim

Terror-Dactyl -- All those bony fingers!  They give me a grue. -- Udarn Voyl

This long after the Rirorni War, if he's stealling stuff out of houses, he isn't a
looter, he's just a cheap thief. -- Ulrik Venn

This was a plot, right?  Some sicko in the handicapper's office was bribed to set up
a fight between me and some poor boob of a Rirorni woman, because they "liked to
watch women fight each other."  If I find out who the sicko is, he's going to be
singing soprano. -- Roseann Sarmin
