                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've been wondering, Why don't I graduate?  The mini-overviews tell the tale:
only one rating.  Bummer.  Teach me more stuff, people, and I'll go away!

                                     Vaistinie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for VEASTIAN.  MVP award for JEREMIAH 
BROADBLADE?  WARRIORS OF STEEL's proud of him after beating KENSELJO and getting 17 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SAMUEL CLIPPER got smashed by FRATSFA 
SLAVE, and lost 14 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE, BUT VAISTINIE is still the Duelmaster because she has the most recognition 
points!  Who was the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
The Dripping Blade?  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Ooh!  The suspense is killing me!  THE FAMILY has like just one turn to 
Bloodfeud ALVERNON STRONGAXE of WARRIORS OF STEEL!  Will they do it???  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 gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
