                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You guys are wearing me out! 15 (fifteen) DM crowns!  Do you know what that does
to a gal?  Keep them coming!  (Both here and at The Flower Shoppe)  I think I love
you all.
          Insolent Iris

P.S.  Yeah, I know it was short and sweet--but that is what you guys keep teaching me
at The Flower Shoppe. (wink)

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
FLORAL VALLEY brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ALYSON IL'CHANT win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
PANDEMIC beat BUSHSUCKSTOADIE and BUSHSUCKSTOADIE lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like FLORAL VALLEY has some guts at least, INSOLENT IRIS the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  TONNELLE challenged FLORAL VALLEY's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, FLORAL 
VALLEY may be getting bland, as INSOLENT IRIS stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in 
a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, FLORAL VALLEY?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
FLORAL VALLEY, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  ASSASSIN NATION the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SITTEES 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  It's about time ANXIOUS AZALEA got beat 
for picking on warriors like SPARK.  Bravo, FIRE INC..  See you at The Victory 
Tavern.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the FLORAL VALLEY arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Fire Wall -- That one had me worried!  I am glad you are okay.  I could REALLY fix
you up if you came over to the Flower Shoppe and let me massage those wounds and what
all.  (wink) -- Anxious Azalea 

Lord Red Scorpion -- I just love your name.  Hey, and a little sting goes a long way,
right?  Thanks for letting me try top position.  (giggle)  Next time we will do
something different, Luv. -- Sizzling Sunflower

Pandemic -- You are soooooo good to me.  I like what we gals do for each other. --
Insolent iris

Imtoosexy -- I cannot believe I asked you out!?  I did!  What's wrong with me?  I
just knew you would mistreat me, you Stud.  Wanna try again?  (wink) -- Painful Peony

Thedeonitsknees -- You really do know what to do down on your knees, don't you?!
Wow!  I finished that one on a high!  More!  I have to have more!  You have come and
see me at The Flower Shoppe. -- Outcast orchid

Sittees -- Congrats on your terrific three-turn record!  Well done. -- Lady Fern

Wretch -- I can take all you can bring on!  Why don't all six of you come on over to
The Flower Shoppe and I'll get my sisters and we'll have a party!  A BIG party! --
Anxious Azalea

Wretch -- I am sorry to see the deaths continue for your clan.  May Flame fight well
in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Lady Fern

I would like to apologize to Wretch for not allowing him to Bloodfeud Irminsul: I
keep him for the tourneys and the contests. -- Le Pentarque

Hey, Sweeet Iris, I am coming!  Now that I have broken the bad spell Psychosis put on
me, I would like to give you a try... not much hope though... -- Tonnelle

Phew, me too I got out of a sticky matchup... -- Bob

Let me be, Sittees!
Pas de Quartier.

Anxious Azalea -- It seems I didnt heed your warning and I paid for it. -- Fire Wall

Outcast Orchid -- I would love to give it another try but other forces are preventing
it from happening. -- Ghost of Flame

The Flower Girls -- Seems Fire Inc. has no need of the Dark Arena.  The other
gladiators seem to feel it is their duty to despose of them before the DA has a
chance. -- Wretch mgr. Fire Inc.

Le Pentarque -- Well that was a way more personal hello then my team wanted.  A
handshake would do next time.  A sword through the chest tends to come off as a
little gruff. -- Wretch

Trustworthy Scribe -- Well fought brave one. -- Firestorm

Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Close but not close enough for you. -- Cinder

Dishonor -- Seem you keep running into me and my brothers.  Glad I came out on top
this time. -- Spark

All -- Just wanna send some props out to the excellent stand-in fighters we have.
Without them the arena wouldn't run as smooth as it does. -- Wretch

All -- A new fire has come into being with the departure of flame.  I welcome Blaze
to this fine arena and hope he is more successful than his recently departed brother
was. -- Wretch

Le Pentarque -- Thank you.  Guthhild was 11(1)-9(2)-12-17-12-5-21, +2 rip, +1 att,
and +3 def, unsure about others.  Finishing with a 12-7-2 record in the arena (10-13
in tourneys), she only learned 2 initiative skills in all those fights, which is why
she lost so many.  She was one of my favorite designs and *all* of my replacements
here have been terrible, so clearly this team is cursed.  I'll be back around October
or November, perhaps with a whole new squad, but I *will* be back!  'Til then, have
fun and I wish you continued success here and elsewhere. -- Heathen
