                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it appears that I'm graduating.  I can't say I'm looking forward to it,
exactly.  Sure, the threat of death is now ended, at least, of death in the arena,
but if that was something that was going to bother me, I wouldn't have become a
gladiator in the first place.  I'm not headed for the Isle, that's for sure--if you
check my paperwork, "Mediocre" is my middle name.  Frem Mediocre Harid.  Going to the
Isle would mean getting beaten up on a regular basis, and I'm tired of that.

                                     Frem Harid

P.S.  15-8-14-13-15-10-9  ME  very high/low

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ROCANIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Don't you think the Duelmaster 
is being unfair?  I think FREM HARID should let PRIEST OF MYTORI be Duelmaster for a 
while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said ROCANIS' Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Wanton Troll?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THEM was the most avoided team.  Is a 40-47-5 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are INCONSISTENT FURY?  THEM, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out RYVAS VOLKMAURI  challenged DEBRA 
FARIN.  After all, haven't INCONSISTENT FURY and MIDDLE WAY 20 had a long standing 
duel in ROCANIS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but DEBRA FARIN wants 
me to write about it since she was defeated by RYVAS VOLKMAURI.  Satisfied?  MODREFT 
MEGLEEN must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged ERBIN 
GOETZ.  10 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought MODREFT 
MEGLEEN showed great skill and promise when he was overcame by ERBIN GOETZ.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ROCANIS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Fight for Me Life -- I've been issued a torch. -- Skuli Thorkel

Jorja -- Congrats on another fine graduate, may the RU folds be kind to you. --
Banthius

Debra Farin -- Yulp we are just going to have to do that again, me thinks. -- Ryvas
Bolkmauri

Frem Harid -- Congrats on invite, you were lucky to win our last match. -- Nickoli
Drybone

Erbin Goetz -- *grin* -- Modreth Mcgleen

Wallop -- It's the name, truely! -- Ieza von Draka

Ryvas Volkmauri -- When you leave it to the handicapper to pick your fights, mostly
you don't get what you'd like, right?  Although, there has to be a flaw in that
reasoning.  After all, there are two in the fight, and if you don't like the way it
went, the other person probably does like it....  I liked this fight.  It was uneven,
but I liked it because it was uneven in my favor.  Hmm. -- Debra Farin

What *IS* it with the Kung-Fu Dwarf?  Why does he hate me?  Why do I have to fight
him at all? -- Abelinda Chase
P.S.  Why couldn't *I* graduate?

Modreft Megleen -- It's about time I got that rating.  Thanks. -- Erbin Goetz

Skuli Thorkel -- You make me feel slightly less inadequate.  To have lost to *you*
would have been a humiliation almost too great to be borne, though I can see that it
would have been an act of kindness to you. -- Forlis Hooler

We salute those who fought in the tourney. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
