                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello, My Darlings,

     I thought for sure the Gladiatorial Commission would have recognized my star
power last turn and given me an invite to the Isle.  I was obviously wrong, or the
Commission was wrong depending on your perspective.  They obviously do not know
talent when they see it.  I am meant for greatness either in this world or the next.
Darque says I shouldn't make such statements because irony has a way of ruining good
things.  I have no idea what he means, but I took it as a bad thing and will refrain
from speaking of my greatness--at least until I get my invitation to the Isle of the
Eye.
     Win or lose, Darque is sure I will get an invite to immortality or a death to
eternity next turn, I will hold off until then to share all the glorious details of
my fighting career.

Your Duelmistress,
     Andromeda 

P.S.  Darque wants me to give the early news that the Slaughterhouse will be coming
soon again to Stormcrowe.  I won't be here to enjoy it, but it certainly is a festive
event!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of STORMCROWE!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with AISHA 
CLANCLAN?  She actually beat SHEWISH BUFFET's ARVATI CAN CARNE, and walked away with 
18 more points from the fight.  See how the Duelmaster challenged STREET WALKERS' 
SLAMBO?  That sort of initiative is how she got where she is now.  Try as she might, 
SLAMBO wasn't good enough at persuading ANDROMEDA to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, STREET WALKERS!  The bums at DARQUE FORCES couldn't face the challenges 
from STREET WALKERS!  No excuse for that!  I hate going to the effort of writing 
about the kind of fights that SAPPHIRA gets in.  She fights people like AURORA MARIE, 
10 points below.  I thought SAPPHIRA showed great skill and promise when she won 
victory over AURORA MARIE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of STORMCROWE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
STORMCROWE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Benezia -- Darque, but not so darque that I couldn't lighten you. -- Aurora Marie
P.S.  I didn't know I had that much to teach.

Rikku -- You probably EAT seals, don't you? -- Seal Dancer
P.S.  Actually, it's okay to eat them if you know the proper rituals.  Otherwise, the
Great Seal will GET you when you aren't looking.

Kerrigan -- I hate it when women make me feel big and clutzy. -- Glirtrina

Aisha Clanclan -- (smug look) -- the Winter Queen

Rodeki Marsala -- Oh, gods, no!  You used COOKING wine?  No no no!  Cooking wine is
crap.  You have to use the BEST if you want the best flavor. -- Ermine

Aurora Marie -- While I am not sure I can consistently overcome the FE difference
between the two of us, I am very pleased with the skills that you teach me.  If I
must lose, that is a great way to lessen the blow a bit. -- Benezia

M. Chardinee -- What is a Chardinee anyway and why are there so many of you around
Alastari? -- Andromeda

Khalums Dwarf -- I think the Commission should allow you dwarves to be a bit more
colorful with your name.  How about Sleepy or Sneezy? -- Roselyn

Kung-Fu Master -- I don't know if your kung-fu is weak or if my scimitar is simply
stronger. -- Sapphira

Seal Dancer -- Ah, now that the announcer has my name correct, I feel better.  So,
how does a seal dance exactly?  I know you aren't fond of clubbing, so where do you
dance? -- Rikku

Glitrina -- I thank you for the favorable match up and I am even more grateful for
the favorable outcome. -- Kerrigan

Captured Orc -- Where did they capture you and why? -- Raynor

Arvati Can Carne -- I don't like the aftertaste! -- Fiametta

Lapur Bisque -- Darque warned there would be great risk in this game, he never
mentioned bisque, though. -- Starwind

The Winter Queen -- Are you actual royalty or is that just a fancy stage name? --
Aisha Clanclan
