                             Notes from the arena champ.

Y'all just can't shrug off all the old people, eh?  I, Grandma Clara, am back as 
Duelmaster.  The Boss made it out of the hospital alive.  We may both out-endure 
y'all.  What the heck!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARDIVENT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for MAXWELL CHARLES?  FANDILS' proud of him after beating 
HAPPY PEASANT and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  EARL's match with 
RUY LOPEZ cost him a loss of 11 points!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome FREAKY TAH.  Aren't THE 27 CLUB 
proud.  (Oh, my.) 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?  The warriors of THE 27 CLUB must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are FANDILS?  THE 27 CLUB, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can FANDILS' EARL be more popular than 
me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
