                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I won't say much.  My whole focus is now on blood feuding and killing the
chicken and missing Rhomba.  Khisanth, your warrior management strategy is sort of
yellow-bellied, don't you think?
     We Older By Far are back whole with the addition of Ache.  (Just what we need;
more aches.)  We looked like this at birth (baby photos):

ST - 9,11,12,16,21
CN - 4,4,9,14,16
SZ - 7,8,10,11,13
WT - 4,8,17,17,17
WL - 9,14,16,17,17
SP - 4,10,12,12,21
DF - 7,9,11,12,21
Yes, a little odd, but downright effective.
     The throne is now open for challenges.  (Unless that snake, Rhomba, shows his
yellow face.)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZENSU.  Like, BEYOND THE PALE had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by OLDER BY FAR!  Way to go OLDER BY 
FAR!  MVP award for LINAEA DEANE?  BEYOND THE PALE's proud of her after beating THE 
6TH ELEMENT and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  COOLIN DUNN got 
smashed by THAT ONE MONKEY, and lost 6 points!  What a putz!  HEARING AID fights so 
hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said it was a 
genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome GOT THE RUNS.  Aren't OLDER BY FAR proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  
Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BEYOND THE PALE was ZENSU's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why OLDER BY FAR's been 
avoiding BEYOND THE PALE so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is 
EARTH popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ZENSU!  He's got a 
24-12-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     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.  ZENSU is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Is this discrimination?!  Older By Far's "Got The Runs" was the most unpopular
warrior last round?  I wonder why? -- Methuselah (with an old smirk on his face)

Rhomba a no show?  But I want to bloodfeud him and kill him?! -- Hearing Aid

Cormek Deane -- I really wanted Khisanth's Rhomba; not you.  I want to kill him; not
you.  I appreciate your willingness to fight and the great effort you put into it.
Him, I do not appreciate. -- Hearing Aid (Widex version)

Earth -- You need to slow down and enjoy life a little more. -- Got The Runs

Lenaea Deane -- I enjoyed it--as usual.  I ain't much, but I guess I am too much. --
I Say No

Persistent Beggar -- Thanks for being my first.  But, a beggar! -- Ache

Good job Older By Fars.  A 4-0 with Rocking Chair sitting out in a "maxed" mode.  Old
fogies rock!!!!!!! -- Methuselah

     In rocking chairs, yes?

Hearing Aid -- Me, too!  You must have put in new batteries. -- Cormek Deane

Methusaleh -- It was the problems of advancing age, which I am sure you understand.
-- Jorja

Hearing Aid -- Better you than your teammate Got the Runs.  Our CAT has 'em, and this
enough to turn anyone off. -- Cormek Deane

I Say No -- That was a disappointment, because I was all set to hear a Yes. -- Linaea
Deane

That One Monkey -- That'll teach you to climb MY curtains! -- Marlin Cole

The 6th Element -- I never did do much with chemistry. -- Loris Deane

Bested by a Captured Orc?  The shame! -- Coolin Dunn
