                             Notes from the arena champ.

My Most Gracious Greetings, Warriors of Stormcrowe!

     I'm either going to be dead or on the Isle very soon.  However, I can't really
reveal any details until that takes place.  I can give you some unimportant
particulars until then I guess...
     I have a 21 Wit, yet I am only learning 1.87 skills per fight.  I have learned
all the Parry and Riposte a girl can learn at this level of the game, not shocking
considering my preferred style.  I haven't really nailed down a favorite weapon yet.
My one kill came against a Striker who challenged me (he was never avenged either,
though his teammates did try).  This is actually my second time on the throne.  I was
Duelmistress on Turn 286 as well and then promptly lost it to Darque's inability to
pay attention and recognize dates on a calendar.  Soon afterwards, our team had to go
on an important mission for Darque and we were away from the arena for a while.  This
is a nice way to return.  Now if I can just get that invite to the Isle!
     That's about all I can give right now.  If I do happen to retain the throne, I
should get my invite next turn.  I'm only missing the 5 political points (stupid
politicians) and I am confident I have all the other requirements met.  Here is to
hoping!

Til Next Turn,

Yumalesca

P.S.  Will I be able to get the Commission to change my name to its correct spelling
of YuNalesca when I graduate?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out STORMCROWE to 
see what's new.  Like, GOD OR GODDESS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked 
off #1 spot by DARQUE FORCES!  Way to go DARQUE FORCES!  What was the name of that 
team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 240-290-6 you ask?  (Sure)  NORTHERN LIGHTS' 
their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for ANDROMEDA?  DARQUE FORCES' 
proud of her after beating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  ELISHAR's match with CELESTIAL ROSE cost it a loss of 9 points!  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think YUMALESCA should let CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Like, is AURORA MARIE popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of STORMCROWE!  She's got a 7-7-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old AEGIR stumbling around the arena, before 
SAPPHIRA finished him off.  Oh well!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families 
would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Sorry, I'm running really short of time today.  (What else is new?  But even shorter
today.)  So no personals from me.  I'll try to do better next time, but no promises,
the new definition of "normal" is a lot busier than the old one.  Or else I'm slowing
down... nah, it couldn't be that! -- Jorja
