                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Amazing how apparently sincere the Venomous Concubine, Lucrenzia Burgos, can
*appear* when she wants something from you.  Like, in this case, a win, and maybe
more but we didn't go into those details, because I just wanted away from her as
quickly as it could be managed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZENSU needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  What was the name of 
that team who got 5-0-2 this turn for a total 8-2-2 you ask?  (Sure)  MEDAL OF HONOR 
Z1's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for PFC 1?  MEDAL OF HONOR 
Z1's proud of him after beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  CALHOUN DEANE got smashed by KUNG-FU MASTER, and lost 11 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think CORBIE LEK should 
let CONVICTED ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was 
the wiseguy that said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern? 
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZENSU ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Drat.  I guess that's what I get for letting my practice program sag over the two and
a half months of the arena's inactivity.  The Veteran Mercenary, who does NOT ignore
practicing, curse his "creaking bones," won in nine minutes.  Wind sprints for me,
and this when the wind-chill is in the teens-below range. -- Terilee Linz

Do you suppose M. Chardinee *knew* he was handing me graduation?  Mind you, I'm not
complaining! -- Calhoun Deane

The Ambitious Guard seemed... cold.  Weather-cold, not emotionally cold.  He was
emotionally warm as anything, rather soppy, when you get down to it, but this is not
the season for the "no sleeves, look at my muscles" couture. -- Carina Linz

And the Veteran Mercenary again, to round out a 4-1 turn.  I can live with this. --
Jofre Mainz

Welcome to Medal of Honor, despite the fact that we didn't get to fight you at all.
Next time we'll have at least one down at the bottom, the replacement for Terilee,
and we expect him to get roundly trounced by some sergeant or grunt.  Not thrilling
to contemplate, but there it is, without you, the arena would still be dead.  Stay,
even when the tourney has passed, okay? -- Jorja, Beyond the Pale
