                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Ardivent!
     This is quite the shock!  Never thought I'd beat Fran Bran and all her fight
experience.  Think I got a bit lucky and don't think I'll be able to hold the throne.
So I figured I'd make Fandil happy and write a quick DM column.  Khisanth is over his
head with all his arenas and apologizes that he doesn't keep up more with his
personals.  I'll get him to try harder!   So, til next cycle, be well Ardivent!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARDIVENT.  MVP award for YVONNE?  FANDILS' 
proud of her after beating KATERINA COLLIN and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  KATERINA COLLIN's match with YVONNE cost her a loss of 18 points!  
EARL thinks his 18-9-0 and studly character is good enough to face up to the 
Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SERPENTITO stopped 
EARL dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  DEATHTONGUE 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 1309-978-64 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are FANDILS?  DEATHTONGUE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' KATERINA COLLIN be 
more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  ARDIVENT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All, first, let me say that my gladiators are pleased NOT to have won the DM Title!
They all say that they are glad Kisanth's team has done so because he writes such
interesting DM Columns.  Hmmmmm. -- Fandil The Wise

     Nothing like a little pressure!

Yes, indeed, Technogeek.  Your fine warriors earned that 3-0 against my Fandils last
turn.  Well done to them.  You are lucky to have such godlings to carry you.  (wink)
-- WOF

Cult Member -- I don't go in for that stuff, but I DO like whapping you.  Oh, yeah.
-- W. D. Purdy

     Vengeance shall be ours! -- Arahol D'Curri, of the Cult of Red Silka

Keelback -- Well, I thought I might be outclassed, and I was, but I had to try.
Well, I thought I had to try.  Now maybe I will just avoid. -- Mildred Leona

Baxter -- I am so appreciative of all that errata. -- Yvonne

Ms. Katarina Collin -- It was my pleasure and honor to have danced with you. -- Earl

Scales -- Thanks!  I really do like my new alligator belt. -- Monsignor Mark

Assur -- Welcome.  We are glad to have you here.  Of course this is a fine Andorian
arena.  Of course.  By the way, just what IS a down challenge? -- Fandil The Wise

HealthI HumilityI Honor!  The Red Sands await. -- WOF

Marci Foote -- Thanks for understanding and giving such a nice tip.  Always
appreciated. -- The Cook Messed Up

Dew -- You still had water left, why did you expect me to give you more? -- What
Water?

Assur says I might get to wait on a VIP's table this tonight.  I'm so excited. -- The
Cook Messed Up

Oh, for the cat's sake!  Bigge is down?  (expletives deleted)! -- Jorja

Assur -- Right, the Arena of the Red Sands upholds the Andorian standard... so why do
my guys keep getting killed?  At least, that's what it feels like. -- Jorja the
disgruntled, Bluvalley Warriors

Anonymous Waitress whose cook messed up -- If I were still alive, I might argue that
point.  As it is... eh.  But I didn't even get a good last meal! -- Ghost of Lou
Bigge

Reagan -- No way!  I'm not old enough. -- Mollie Scot

Oh, gods, an oh-fer turn!  I don't know if I can bear to read the fights. -- Jorja

The Cook Messed Up -- I'll say!  Advise him not to fry his potatoes in machine oil.
Cheese louise!  These are awful. -- Marci Foote

Earl -- Why do people do things that aren't good for them?  It would have been GOOD
for you to lose another fight.  You need another loss for balance.  But do you
listen?  No, of course not! -- Katerina Collin

Frat Punk -- You are incredibly rude, and I will NOT go on a date with you. -- Mollie

Scot
P.S.  How could you have faced more formidable foes in the bathtub?  My impression is
that when you found a foe in the bathtub, you decided to swear off bathing.

Coral -- Darned snake-hipped redhead! -- Lial Deane

Bobbi Jo -- This is the old elf/Shew rivalry, isn't it?  I should've been ready for
it.  Damn. -- Ghost of Lou Bigge
