                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Rirorni Spy?  Is this the Saboteur's idea of revenge?  Because if so, it isn't
convincing.  The spy was...less than impressive.

                                      Forluitha

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ROCANIS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for FRANCIS THUG?  STRAIGHT UP THUG's proud of him after 
beating BACK and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MR THUG got 
smashed by HAWTHORN, and lost 6 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think FORLUITHA should let RIRORNI SPY be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     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?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ROCANIS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

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,
Bad Apples

Overit -- But I won't!  I refuse!  I will cherish my grievance for ever and ever! --
Malus s'Prout

Ah.  "Those in the stands shift their attention to the warriors."  The sentence for
today.  I have to wonder what their attention goes back to as soon as the fight is
over, though.  What is so absorbing?  Maybe we should forget about fighting and
follow up on that, instead? -- Jorja

Overit -- I didn't really scream in the Infirmary, that's just reportorial hyperbole.
I maintained a dignified, stoic silence. -- Malus
P.S.  At least, until I saw the bill.

Loveable Larry -- I don't love you.  Not after the way you turned that fight around
when I was AHEAD.  You just about STOLE that win from me! -- Buck Fever the Indignant

Lois Thug -- Mark my words, wench, you ARE mine!  I've been lusting after you for
weeks, and now that I have the chance...you're MINE. -- Sourcrab the perhaps overly
optimistic

Back -- ...further.  You're still too close.  I can't stand it when you get too
close. -- Hawthorn

Crozio Malone, Ambitious Guard -- The use of thorns was permitted by the stewards.
Take it up with THEM.  I asked 'em about it before the fight, and they checked the
lists, and thorns are not forbidden. -- Hawthorn

Red Murgol, Rirorni Thug -- Hmm, I don't mind if I do!  Which piece?  I'm partial to
liver. -- Sourcrab

Doom from the South, Mark V -- I am NOT! -- Buck Fever

Koveg Firespitter, Rirorni Saboteur -- I'm shaking in my sandals. -- Forluitha

Juan Thug-a-Lot -- No problem, I wouldn't mess things up for a drinking buddy. --
Halrhuzoi, Rirorni Archer

Forluitha -- This is because the Firespitter talked rough, isn't it?  Well, HE may
let you off with a warning, but I'm not so easy.  Be prepared to die at the
unexpected moment! -- Dhalgoi, Rirorni Spy

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
