                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not so good this time, Cyclone, only taught you one skill.  Maybe next time will
be better, eh?  But at least you got to flirt with the nurses.

                                     Kirvinj

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for VEASTIAN.  Too bad, FAMOUS HURLERS, but 
THE FAMILY was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for MELANJI?  THE FAMILY's 
proud of her after beating CYCLONE and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  CYCLONE's match with MELANJI cost him a loss of 14 points!  Oh, wow, like 
the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all VEASTIAN.  He got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) THE BIG UNIT thinks his 9-3-2 and studly 
character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was that a tear I 
saw in THE BIG UNIT's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't KIRVINJ fit to 
be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  ORDER was the most avoided team.  Is a 12-4-1 record really that 
scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are FAMOUS HURLERS?  ORDER, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  People were asking 
me did BIG SIX REALLY challenge A BAD LIE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but A BAD LIE wants me to 
write about it since she was subdued by BIG SIX.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
