                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  Coolin got the only loss on our team today, the dummy.  And to the Veteran
Mercenary, Sinjanos Thropian.  Not a bad guy, but Coolin should've made mincemeat of
him.
     As for me, people speak disparagingly of the morals of orcs, but *we* don't
produce many Convicted Assassins.  And we know what to do when we meet one.

                                   Loris Deane

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZENSU.  MVP award for HUMAN HORN?  SHEWISH 
BUFFET's proud of him after beating B. HEADER and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  CHAD GORAM's match with THE USEROUS MERCHANT cost him a loss of 1 
points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and 
LORIS DEANE has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  LINAEA DEANE of BEYOND THE PALE 
takes LORIS DEANE's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of LORIS 
DEANE?  Oh, all right.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  BUB BYE 
returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at its U PAY I SLAY teammates...  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

We salute the tourney participants from Zensu, which at least gives us something to
say. -- Jorja and Beyond the Pale

Despite what my teammate says, I had no desire to make mincemeat out of old Thropian.
I was, quite simply, tired of being duelmaster.  As it's been here most times lately,
that's almost meaningless. -- Coolin Dunn

It's no wonder the Kung-Fu Master, or as he puts it on his business cards, Gabro
Ironaxe, Master of Kung-Fu and Many Other Exotic Techniques, lost the fight.  He's a
dwarf, after all, and the dwarves are known for their mastery of steel weapons, no
the open hand.  He's like the dog that walks on its hind feet, you know, the wonder
is not that he does it poorly, but that he does it at all. -- Linaea Deane

You've got to wonder about the Fratsfans, sometimes, when you find 'em keeping
Convincian slaves. -- Mendal Kordin

If that blond is an Oskian, noble or otherwise, I'll eat him.  And I'm practically a
vegetarian. -- Chad Goram
