                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Huh, the Rirorni Assassin.  I wish I'd killed him.  I would have liked to kill
him, and I'm partly Rirorni myself.  But NOT an assassin.  That's what gravels my
drawers.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ROCANIS.  MVP award for HAWTHORN?  BAD 
APPLES' proud of him after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 17 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  MALUS S'PROUT's match with BACK cost him a loss of 15 points!  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to RIRORNI SABOTEUR, BUT FORLUITHA is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Nalenthu -- You Philanthropists are all such hypocrites!  There we were, both of us
with even records, and the true philanthropist would have let ME go to the winning
side and taken the loss upon himself.  But did you do this?  No, hairy little me-
firster that you are, you did NOT.  Bah, humbug! -- Sourcrab

Doom from the South?  Not today.  Eat steel, you evil cultist! -- Buck Fever

Mage's Apprentice?  What a joke!  Now he's an Apprentice Ghost. -- Hawthorn
P.S.  Hey, I couldn't help it.  He came out with no armor and no skill and tried to
parry with his face.

And, just to round things out, a Rirorni Archer, helpless without his bow. -- Malus
s'Prout

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
