                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All right.  The Fratsfa Quest is back!  That Studmuffin Toker has announced it
for a July start!  I could just kiss that guy.  (Probably a little more than kiss,
too.  Wink)  We Flower Gals are really, really looking forward to it, cuz we had such
fun in the last one.  I just hope I last around here long enough to compete.  You
never know when The Commission will call.
     We've heard that there will be some new blood here for the event.  Soultaker's
coming.  Mannequin's coming.  Nuln's coming.  Everybody's coming.  We Flower Girls
like that.  Business will be hopping at The Flower Shoppe.  We can't wait.
     So a salute to Toker for starting the Quest.  And a salute to all who will be
competing again plus the "newbies" who are coming to try their luck the first time.
We WILL have fun.  Yes!
              Insolent Iris DMXIX

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of FLORAL VALLEY!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon ODD 
ODIUS ORCS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 13th position in the wake 
of a 0-0-0 round.  BOY Z caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested BOB LE CANADIEN and was awarded 30 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, SUE SOON put down PAS DE QUARTIER, causing him to 
lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of 
the usurper.  All hail IMTOOSEXY, Duelmaster of FLORAL VALLEY!  No confirmation, but 
my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city FLORAL VALLEY.  FLORAL VALLEY, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is ASSASSIN NATION, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of FLOWER GIRLS last week.  Busy avoiding ASSASSIN NATION?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  SIZZLING SUNFLOWER take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in FLORAL VALLEY.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  PSYCHOSIS has the town astir with the news of hers Dark Arena 
victory!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, 
better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in FLORAL VALLEY.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must 
I keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of 
Alastari await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in 
a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tonnelle -- How nice of you to call.  We gals had a great time together, didn't we?
I'm really glad you like it like that!  (wink) -- Insolent Iris

Slayingdeisfun -- Wasn't that obvious?  The outcome?  I just had to have some of you,
though.  (wink)  Come on over to The Flower Shoppe and we will go at it again--
without all that armor.  You are so buffed! -- Painful Peony

Alyson Il'chant -- Why thanks, Hon.  I'm ambidextrous, too!  Girls just wanna have
fun.  Thanks for letting me be on top.  Next time is yours at The Flower Shoppe.  I
cannot wait for the ending!  (wink) -- Anxious Azalea

Deranged Diamond -- Finally a win over you Orcs.  You guys are tough.  Where do you
get your drugs from? -- Sizzling Sunflower

Toker -- The wait makes it all the better, Studmiffin.  You have a place in my heart.
(elsewhere, too--wink) -- Lady Fern

Bushsuckstoadie or Imtoosexy -- Which one of you wants some of me?  Try hard!  Don't
let Shy Ann sneak into your spot!  Personally, you can be assured that I will try my

Say a prayer for a true Face-To-Face this summer.  My girls need the workout. -- Lady
Fern, Flower Girls

Well, I tried twice, and it was worse the second time, so I guess it's enough for me.
Insolent Iris is THE Girl.  She tried to impale me, broke my two scimitars then
almost ate my hands.... -- Tonnelle

Time to get ready for The Quest 2, guys! -- Le Pentarque

Lady Fern -- Being as I'm a Delarquan; what's the preference on challenges here?
Just need to know the Arena etiquette so I don't make a Dc sore. -- Angel

Ruthless Jaywalker -- I only thought you were an old bag lady that needed help across
the street, but Nooo!  You had to go and bash me!  And to think I was going to share
some of my girl scout cookies with you.  Just wait 'til I see you again! -- Angel

Saint -- Can we get a manager list?

     Here's what I have.  These are teams listed in last turn's newsletter.  If I've
