                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail Kati-Tei!  I knew this day would finally come, just didn't think it would
take so long.  Glad I was finally able to get my challenge through to The Wait.
Maybe he wasn't avoiding me this time.  :)  Stormy said he was grooming me for the
title, too bad I only got it the turn before being invited to the Isle.  I guess
better late than never, though!  I also want to congratulate my stable mate El Nino
for getting the invite with me.  I'm sure we'll be causing plenty of havoc in the
lower ranks of ADM!  Watch out, Freshman!  Now for the business at hand, I will be
going to the Dark Arena to try out my new faves and strategy!  It was a pleasure
fighting everyone I ran into the sands in this fair city!  So long.  Now a few words
from our esteemed manager, Stormy!

Your Duelmaster, Mohnsoon Mayhem!

     Well, Mohnsoon Mayhem is the first Aimed Blow I was able to graduate since I
returned to the game.  I have to admit I made some mistakes with him earlier in his
career, but I think he taught me a lot about how to run the style.  His stats are
pretty typical for a decent aimed-blow: 11(+1)-6-5-17-15-10-21.  He graduates with a
Mas in ATT, Ad Exp in INIT and RIP, Exp in DEF and PAR.  He turned out to be a Fist
fave (Woohoo!), but didn't have the guts to try it out in basic, and L/VL.  Next up,
the long grind to maxxing out!

Your Esteemed Storm Lord!

P.S.  Just also wanted to mention that El Nino is the first Slasher I am graduating
as well.  He was a lot of fun, and gave me a greater appreciation of the style.  I'm
expecting big things from him in the near future!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KATI-TEI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for EL NINO?  THE 
STORM FRONT's proud of him after beating DEVIL DOG and getting 14 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  N'KAI got smashed by MARLIN REEVE, and lost 13 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  DARK CHAMPION knows this. 
He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
DARK CHAMPION killed the Duelmaster, MOHNSOON MAYHEM, leaving THE STORM FRONT in 
mourning.  THE WAIT gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might 
try to kill him, too?  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 WANDERERS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why THE PLAGUE's been 
avoiding WANDERERS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can THE PLAGUE's 
THE WAIT be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?  THE WAIT must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged BALIN CHANE.  13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought THE WAIT showed great skill and promise when he overcame BALIN CHANE.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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 Wait -- I've been "waiting" for that match up for a long time!  Turned out like I
expected, though you did block more shots than I thought you'd do. -- Mohnsoon Mayhem

Old Yeller -- If you're going to armor up, might as well armor up all the way!  Good
job!  But seeing that you have a lot more experience than me, I thought you would at
least teach me better than that. -- Tore Naydo

Virginal Concubine -- How many times have we met up already?!  Don't worry, though,
I'll tell everyone you're still a virgin! -- Syklone Sequel

Ubba-Sathla -- That was a bad match up for you!  I'm just starting to flex my muscles
around here. -- El Nino

Samara -- It was nice to renew an old rivalry, though not the ending I would have
hoped for.  Maybe we can be like the Bears and Packers.  Thanks for those skills! --
Wrolling Thunder

Balin Chane -- You just may be dog's best friend? -- Devil Dog

Red Tentacle -- I just couldn't handle your pooper scooper for some reason. --
Firehydrant Defiler

Way of the Wicked -- Consider yourself touched by greatness! -- The Hand of Dog

Skellie -- You need to eat some and put some meat on them bones! -- English Bulldog

Tore Naydo -- Well, it wasn't pretty, but Pure Breed's death has now been avenged! --
Old Yeller

Devil Dog -- Way too devilish.  Probably you're secretly on the side of Reaper's
bunch.  Ubba-Satha and them. -- Balin Chane

N'Kai -- Piff.  Take that devilish dog and go AWAY. -- Marlin Reeve

Dodo -- It's high time you were extinct.  Someone must have slipped up here. -- Grimm
Lurcher

Wrolling Thunder -- We had that earlier, but it went away.  Probably too cold. --
Samara

Walker -- Shucks.  They told me this would be easy.  Looks like They lied. -- Stray
Catcher

Ubba-Satha -- So?  What does that have to do with me?  I'm no aimed blow. -- Samara

We congratulate Monsoon Mayhem and El Nino. -- Jorja and the Wanderers
P.S.  And we salute the tourney participants from Kati-Tei, too.
