                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You need to watch that temper, Golden Fury.  It can really get a warrior into
trouble in the arena.  Out of the arena...well, that's up to your manager.  I hear
the Baron gets upset if we go out and beat up ordinary citizens, but you wouldn't do
THAT, would you?
     I have received the Good Word:  Graduation!  I'm going to become a mountain!
                                     Flint Hills

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARDIVENT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for HERMY COLLIN?  
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' proud of her after beating VISITING ORC and getting 9 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  VECORDIUS' match with M. CHARDINEE cost him a loss of 
44 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think FLINT HILLS 
should let SOLARIS be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask 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?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

That Ruthless Jaywalker really IS ruthless!  I was already trying to get out of the
way when he ran me down! -- Becker Collin the down-trodden

The Ambitious Guard is cute, but that doesn't mean I'm going to let him beat me!  As
if!  He promised not to KILL me (which is sweet of him), but that is Not Enough.  The
winner--only--gets all the owies wiped away, and that was my goal. -- Lori Collin the
victorious
P.S.  Actually, I didn't even let him hit me ONCE.  Better not to HAVE any owies than
get 'em healed in an instant.

I TOLD the Visiting Orc to bring the relish plate, but he said he FORGOT.  Then he
said his dog ate it.  As if!  I sent him back to get another one. -- Hermy Collin

Gosh, this being reincarnated is TRICKY.  I mean, it's HARD WORK.  I was all wound up
in something, I don't know what.  And then that old Volunteer shifted his eyes at me,
and I just HIT him.  Gosh.  I didn't know I had that in me. -- Debra Conklin
P.S.  He shouldn't have shifted his eyes.  I'm, like, enormously charismatic, and
people aren't supposed to DO that to me.
P.P.S.  Really.

Ed. -- Well, he can HAVE that tough old chicken, see if *I* care. -- Hermy Collin
P.S.  I think it was cooked too long.

     It may not have been cooked long enough.  Don't tough ones need more cooking? --
     Ed.

Golden Fury -- It's just one of those things that happens in the arena.  We attach no
blame to you for the death of Debra Collin. -- Leeta and the Bluvalley Warriors
P.S.  Besides, Ms. Conklin seems to be effectively reincarnating her spirit, and what
more could we ask?

Lord Protector Flint Hills -- I feel quite certain that you have neither a need nor a
desire for lands.  Or, if you do desire lands, that you are fully capable of going
SOMEWHERE ELSE and taking them away from some worthless barbarian.  Go with my best
wishes. -- Arvendon, Secretary to the baron

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
