                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wastelander, that was well done of you.  I enjoyed the win, and I am SOOO glad
you washed your neck beforehand.  Thank you.  Also, I'm glad you survived.  You may
be a golem, but I almost like you.

                                     Wimperetta

P.S.  I wonder what my favorites are?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TROCAR to see 
what's new.  Like, EYE OF THE STORM had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by TRADERS OF TROCAR!  Way to go TRADERS OF TROCAR!  MVP award for GLUM?  
JANIX's proud of him after beating SKORINDELLE and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  SKORINDELLE's match with GLUM cost her a loss of 21 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  WIMPERETTA stopped SNIR dead in his tracks!  I 
hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  EYE OF THE 
STORM was TROCAR's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are JANIX?  EYE OF THE STORM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is VAGRANT CUR popular, or what?  
It was challenged the most in all of TROCAR!  It's got a 7-5-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  XYCO 
returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at its JANIX teammates...  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.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Traders of Trocar

Snir -- Odd name, but I like it.  Well, to be honest, I liked WINNING, too. --
Skorindelle

Xyco -- They tell me you're graduating.  Good!  Leave. -- Penelothe
P.S.  Enjoy the trip.

Glum -- I hate days like this. -- Daristam

Albert -- I had hoped for better from a fellow bert, but then I noticed you're an orc
and it all made sense.  In an unpleasant way. -- Korbert

Wastelander -- Thanks.  After Wimpiretta leaves, I may get the title, if something
ELSE doesn't come up.  This year has just been one darned thing after another. --
Penelothe

Pretty Lerona -- So quit and get a job you like better. -- Korbert, not impressed

Master Fanatic -- I'm supposed to be worried about someone who's embarrassed to give
his real name?  Gosh. -- Skorindelle

The Collector -- Dream on! -- Wimperetta, not giving anything to anyone

Our congratulations to Xyco. -- Traders of Trocar

Vagrant Cur -- We have fishing laws for a reason, you know.  And they include not
feeding the fish whatever it was you were tossing into the water.  A major pollutant,
from the look of things. -- a Lake Patrolman

Rune Knight -- Of course you won.  I got bored and went to sleep. -- a Rirorni Labor
Broker

Trout -- Drat. -- Trollbait

Mokan -- I really shouldn't be out here on the sands, but one of the senior
apprentices is jealous of me and lied to our master.  Grossly unfair, but that's
life. -- a Mage's Apprentice
