                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And because of the inactivity of all the 'worthy' warriors, I take the throne
again.  I can only say thanks.  I fully expect to be another one turn wonder.  Assur
has said it more than once.  I only get to fight because I'm a basher and only
because I shared a team with my fellow  waitress.  Fortunately, Assur loves bashers
and lets them fight by themselves, too.
     In some ways, I think I have the better deal, because if I survive, I'll get to
fully retire, while The Cook Messed Up will spend many years fighting.
     I'm just going to enjoy retirement and enjoy my kids and hopefully future
grandkids.  I'm also better looking than The Cook Messed Up and I've done very, very
well with tips, so I've spent much less time moonlighting as a waitress while I've
been fighting here.

What Water?

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARDIVENT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Cut this out and put 
it in your scrapbooks, THE 27 CLUB!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP 
award for JIMI HENDRIX?  THE 27 CLUB's proud of him after beating JOUBERT KLEE and 
getting 25 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BLACK BILE's match with ANTI-LEAP 
YEAR cost him a loss of 13 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular gal in all ARDIVENT.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about 
proposals?) The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  VIOLENT 
ORANGE knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in 
VIOLENT ORANGE's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't WHAT WATER? fit to 
be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE 27 CLUB was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 31-26-0 record really that scary?  I don't know what FANDILS' been doing. 
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE 27 CLUB, that's fer sher.  
     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?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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

Assur -- We are glad you are sticking around.  I knew our plan to let "What Water?"
win the Duelmastership would work! -- Fandil The Wise

By the way, congrats to you, What Water?, Duelmaster of The Red Sands. -- WOF

That Stone Golem is tough, eh, The Cook Messed Up? -- Us Fandils (Who really were
pulling for you.)  (And who realize now that you were not a superbagger, just a
semibagger.)

Tria -- Perhaps it really was THAT easy?  Kudos. -- Fandil The Wise

Jimi Hendrix -- Thanks for coming back to jam again.  I had fun.  And now, FINALLY,
my record is .500.  (Oops!  Just jinxed myself!) -- Swirvin' Irvin

Arlene Ross -- That hurt!  And I just might dislike (meaning--off the Christmas card
list, taken off "like" on Facebook, sending glaring looks your way, avoiding you,
etc, etc) you.  No more flirting from me; no way! -- Uncle Junior

Kurt Cobain -- Whoa!  Too good for me! -- Clara Rose

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

Snuffy -- Huh, soft words, finger-biter!  I know what to believe. -- Fingers Brooke

Assur -- Well, good, we like it when you stick around.  You enhance the newsletter.
-- Jorja

What Water? -- Just as well.  I'm not even sure that stuff IS water. -- Corbin Ross,
not thirsty

Uncle Junior -- You need to stay humble--obviously, Fandil expects it of you--and I
was glad to help. -- Arlene Ross

Anti-Leap Year -- Good!  I hate it when the women sneak up and propose to me. --
Joubert Klee, glad not to be leaping

And two standbys eat sand.  Good! -- Tria Skathach and Fingers Brooke
