                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I fought M. Chardinee for the title?  That's ridiculous.

                                   Long Biggar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARDIVENT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for JACK SPARROW?  WENSINWASIN 1234's proud of him after 
beating UNCLE JUNIOR and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SHELLEY 
ANN got smashed by MARCI FOOTE, and lost 6 points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has 
lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, and LONG BIGGAR has made the way for a new 
Duelmaster!  MARCI FOOTE of BLUVALLEY WARRIORS takes LONG BIGGAR's place.  (But 
seriously, who could ever take the place of LONG BIGGAR?  Oh, all right.) 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?  YOU DON'T SAY! was ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why AZURE CLOUDS' been 
avoiding YOU DON'T SAY! so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' MARCI FOOTE be more popular than me?  She was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found 
out OOO OOO OOO challenged JOUBERT KLEE.  After all, haven't YOU DON'T SAY! and 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS had a long standing duel in ARDIVENT?  It wasn't a spectacular 
fight, or anything, but JOUBERT KLEE wants me to write about it since he beat OOO OOO 
OOO.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARDIVENT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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

Look at those Azure Clouds just come back in and take over the place!  What have The
Red Sands come to? -- Fandil The Wise

     Purple mud?

I winned one!  I winned one!  Thankee, Rocksound.  Yu da man!  Yup. -- Snuffy

Joubert Klee -- You are a thorn in Fandil sides.  You are.  Here I am thinking I am
in good shape, now prepped exactly for Inits at The Mailer, and you come along and
make it clear that my tournament run is nothing but a pipe dream.  Pshaw on you! --
Irvin (Tryin' but not quite swirvin'.)

Black Bile -- Some like it hot; I like it black. -- Clara Rose

Joubert -- YOU don't get it!  Snuffy is too dumb to pay attention or to learn
anything from what skills he learned.  But he is such fun to have around.  The
Consortium only won two potions at the last Face; now if they had maybe two more,
they could fix ole Snuffy.  Yes, they could. -- WOF

Corbin Ross -- Ya jest keep muh feed bowl filled, will ya? -- Irvin

BluValley Warriors -- I think you have a mighty fine shot at holding Duelmaster next
turn.  You guys are good! -- Fandil The Wise and Jealous

Welcome to The 27th Club.  May your stay in Ardivent, The Red Sands, be long and
prosperous. -- Fandil The Wise

You Don't Say -- Feel free to run more even if you are tournament prepping.  We need
some good competition here. -- WOF

Azure Clouds -- It is acceptable for you to pen personals even if your penmanship is
like a doctor's.  (wink) -- Fandil The Wise

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Snuffy -- You gave me the cold shoulder.  You and your shields, and armor.  No love
at all. -- Rock

Random match ups.  Fanils vs. Slugbait 2 - 0.  I will have my revenge. -- slugbait

Clara -- I guess the silver lining under this dark cloud is that you didn't kill me.
-- Bile

Fandil -- Thanks for the welcome and the beat down. -- slugbait

Kurt -- I was repealed by the stench of teen spirit. -- Name

Corbin Ross -- I'm pretty sure you should have beat me.  What happened? -- Orange

Shelley Ann -- They're really good socks. -- Marci Foote

Irvin -- Maybe if you buttered your paws, you could swirve better? -- Corbin Ross
P.S.  Or we could get some dimes for the arena, so you could turn on 'em.

The Veteran Mercenary does seem to be getting a bit "past it," but at least he can
lose with grace. -- Lila Deane

He's definitely past being able to handle two fights in one day. -- Marci Foote

Violent Orange -- Had I realized I was coming up against you, I wouldn't have worn
pink.  Talk about a gruesome clash! -- Corbin Ross

Irvin -- I didn't mean to step on your tail, I just didn't SEE it all the way down
there. -- Joubert Klee
