                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Six of these titles?  All I can say is one more fight.  One more fight, I think;
then I shall be on my way to Crysalis or retirement.  I must avoid death somehow.
    " ... Life is but a poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the stage and
then is heard no more ..."  I hope that is not ME.  "Tis a tale told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
     Something about Shakespeare's Macbeth pulls me.  Hopefully not to he and Lady
Macbeth's fate. "Out, out brief candle ..."
          Anna Beatrice, DMVI

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARDIVENT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for BINGO LITTLE?  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' proud of him after 
beating ALF MUSHPIE and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KRAMER's 
match with RAGNAR cost him a loss of 9 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think ANNA BEATRICE should let BETTY be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of DEATHTONGUE must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
FANDILS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
DEATHTONGUE, that's fer sher.  Can BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' MUNGO BURKE be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARDIVENT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  It was kind of sad, seeing old ALF MUSHPIE stumbling around 
the arena, before BINGO LITTLE finished her off.  Oh well!  What a bunch of 
heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people were snickering when LILY CATHERINE 
killed RANDELL SCOT.  So he had a 3-9-0, that's no excuse!  What if they had a fight 
and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Snorky, Deathtongue, how in the heck did I do THAT!?  What am I doing up here where
anyone with experience will kill me?  Oh, me; oh, my! -- Sis

Jenimys -- My dear, but we already knew that, didn't we.  I may be learning a lot of
skills, but I would rather win more than I lose.  Technogeek probably loves me! --
Uncle Bob

Alf Mushpie -- Great challenge, and the best warrior won.  Salute. -- Lily Catherine

Mungo Burke -- Sorry to make it two in a row, but we Fandils really needed that! --
Brother Jerome

Binkly -- You were there, I guess . Next time, you will probably decimate me. -- Anna

No dead reported!  Health, humility, and honor in The Red Sands. -- Fandil The Wise

Tania -- Bookshelves, all the things I buy go in my clothes closet.  Well, in one or
the other of them! -- Lily C.

Good Humor's -- Nice top team on the move. -- Fandil The Wise

Lily Catherine -- Woot!  At least I beat one of the Fandil monsters. -- Alf

Anna -- This is getting old fast. -- Binkly

Sis -- Yeah, right... -- Snorky

Bingo Little -- Well, at least I got something out of it. -- Fran

Fandil -- I highly suspect you are feeding these guys copious amounts of steroids.
There's no way such small girlish types pack that much punch. -- Technogeek

     You jest. -- Arenamistress Fandette

Brother Jerome -- How can you be a dwarf?  You're too tall.  And besides, dwarves
don't have brothers.  Or sisters, or anything like that.  No families.  They're born
straight out of the stone, everyone knows that. -- Mungo Burke

Shadow Blade -- Why would anyone want to hold a serpent?  Sure, they have their niche
in the ecosystem, eat small varmits like mice and stuff, but why HOLD them?  They're
definitely not warm and fuzzy. -- Tania Park

Uncle Bob -- A win, a skill, a rating, what more (within reason) can a woman ask? --
Jennimys Collin

Ragnar -- Ha, *I* know why you'd hold a serpent.  Right behind the head, to stop it
biting you.  But you need to be quick off the mark when you grab it.  You'd better
practice that "quick off the mark" bit.  It needs work. -- Randell Scot

Fran Bran -- Oh, I SAY, old bean, bran muffins, what?  Good show. -- Bingo Little

Anna Beatrice, DMV -- Can you do anything about getting an emmissions waiver for my
car? -- Tania Park

Lily Catherine -- A chocolate covered doughnut with whipped filling would be
delicious, but they've been banned from our club because it's so hard to get the
chocolate stains off the walls and the whipped filling out of the carpet after the
daily bun fight. -- Bingo Little
P.S.  Two percent?  I take my milk straight!  Although not, alas, the way it comes
from the cow anymore, which is more like ten percent.

Arenamistress Fandette -- Um, I left it in the pocket of my other suit? -- Randell
Scot
P.S.  I couldn't pass that one up.

     Next time, try harder. -- Arenamistress Fandette

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
