                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Don't you all get tired of me writing these columns?  I am beginning to feel as
though I am the editor of The Floral News!  This makes crown number eighteen.  18!
Wow.  I think the throne has been fitted to perfectly fit my behind.  (And a pretty
perky little behind it is, at that!)
     I am beginning to feel sorry for Fire Inc.  Our team has not treated them well,
killing two of their warriors unintentionally.  That is so sad and unnecessary.  All
of us girls apologize.  We do.  Please forgive us.  Let us lick your wounds and make
it right.  Yes!  We can do that, and do it well!
     We are looking forward to the Atlanta Face in July.  (There will be a Face,
won't there?)  We just love working the crowds and bringing joy and pleasure to all
there.  It is a fun time!  It is.
     A fact for the record; I have had 19 Title fights and only lost one.  My record
against styles looks like this:
     LU 9-0
     BA 4-0
     SL 3-1 (only Aubin L'Aurouge of Blood & Guts has done the trick)
     TP 1-0
     ST 1-0
I guess that tells you something, doesn't it.
     Meanwhile, I am here.  Come and get me.  It may just be the most exciting moment
in your life.  (wink)

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  A stormcloud is brewing over the SITTEES guildhouse.  Rumor says any 
more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with 
a solid 5-0-0 outing, FIRE INC. has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Advancing in 
the rankings was ISN'T IT OBVIOUS who went from last turn's 40-47-4, to this week's 
record of 43-48-4.  Hey everybody, watch out for PAS DE QUARTIER, who flew up 28 
points in the rankings after mashing PSYCHOSIS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was PSYCHOSIS, who dropped 18 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with PAS DE QUARTIER.  TONNELLE got 
through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick 
INSOLENT IRIS' tail out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal INSOLENT IRIS moved 
hers record to 33-9-0 by defeating TONNELLE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 13 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the FLORAL VALLEY arena.  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SITTEES?  Big bad SITTEES.  Big 
bad SITTEES.  FLORAL VALLEY's afraid of the big bad SITTEES.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause BLOOD AND GUTS! beats 
feet every time SITTEES smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, ALYSON IL'CHANT would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Congrats to SPARK for revenging the death 
of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding NIMBLE a bit of dirt).  In the 'Oops, 
What Have I Done?' category, LIFE OR DEATH was mashed by FIRE WALL, who let LIFE OR 
DEATH know that killing members of FIRE INC. is a no-no.  Remember:  alliances are 
great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the FLORAL VALLEY giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Cinder and Fire Inc -- Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.  Outcast Orchid had no
intention of killing your fine warrior.  All The Flower Girls are sorry.  Very sorry.
And to make matters worse, Outcast is maxed for the Initiate category for the Atlanta
Face (hopefully the Atlanta Face!) and will not be participating for the next few
turns.  For that, too, we apologize.  We owe you.  Perhaps the gals can make it up to
you at The Flower Shoppe? -- Lady Fern

Cinder -- May you fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Outcast Orchid
(feeling downcast)

Shadow Fox -- Thanks for coming to see me.  We had fun didn't we?  You are so cute
when you are hot.  Like a wolf! -- Sizzling Sunflower

Spark -- Turnabout is fair play, they say!  So come on over to The Flower Shoppe and
we can play some more.  (wink) -- Anxious Azalea

Oak Lee -- That may have been painful, but it was a rush, wasn't it?  I want more of
you.  We can go fast or slow, but most importantly, we can reach for the stars! --
Painful Pansy

Mayhem -- You know I love you. -- Insolent Iris

Ghab -- My friend, congrats on the soon-to-be number two.  Sweet! -- Lady Fern & The
Flower Girls

Severity -- Great night fight!  A salute to you! -- The Flower Girls

Lady Fern -- I will be running the Quest again.  Give me this month then I'll post
the all arena ad for it to start around June or July.  I've been real busy and
haven't had time to get everything going.  I do apologize for the wait as it was
unexpected for me as well.  See you soon. -- Toker, Quest 2 host

Odd Odius Orcs -- My bad on Loathsome lummox, Alyson will be here for the BF. -- Liam
the Goth, mgr. More' Goth

All -- It seems the rains have come hard and heavy as the lives of Cinder, Firestorm,
and Blaze were all snuffed out by it.  May the sun come back brighter then ever to
ignite a new wave of fire. -- Wretch

Lady Fern -- It seems your flowers are over watered as fire does not seem to bother
them much. -- Wretch

Life or Death -- Well I guess I know which one you lean towards now.  We shall be
sending someone to talk to you about your choices and hopefully correct them for the
future. -- Wretch

Nimble -- True to your name you were, firestorm not so much.  I guess we shall be
sending someone to see just how nimble you are. -- Wretch

Anxious Azalea -- 1-1 we are now.  I am gonna be a little busy for a while revenging
a couple deaths but I am sure you can wait to see who's gonna win the grudge match.
-- Spark

Outcast Orchid -- We just finished a bloodfeud with your team and now you go and
start another because you didn't like losing.  We shall be encountering each other a
lot more I guess. -- Wretch

Thedeonitsknees -- Well fought.  May we meet again for another fine battle when my
team has dealt with its current problems. -- Fire Wall

All -- Be glad that my teams prefer cremation as we would fill the cemetery if this
death rate continues. -- Wretch
