                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Drat.  I never was much good at the "kung-fu" stuff.  Where did they FIND this
guy?  He is SUPPOSED to be using a sword, as ANY sane person would in battle.

                                       Kona Quail

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ILLIS will ever be the same.  And let's see, APPLESEED fought ROKORAL and 
gained 12 points and contributed to IMPROVED ILLUSION's 3-2-0.  ROKORAL has lost to 
APPLESEED, falling 10 points, while helping make ISLANDERS a 1-2-0 turn.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to DOOMIE JUGGERNAUT, BUT KONA QUAIL is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that ROSE SHELL from ISLANDERS was ILLIS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Kudos go out to ROSE SHELL this turn, for revenging ISLANDERS' bloodfeud 
against IMPROVED ILLUSION's warrior INUYASHA.  Well done.  The Warty Toad declares a 
free round for ROSE SHELL and all of ISLANDERS, for having revenged IMPROVED 
ILLUSION's INUYASHA for killing one of their comrades.  Is it really true that ILLIS 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ILLIS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ILLIS again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Simon Magus -- You may be "the Great" at magic and dueling, but you're no gentleman!
I was winning, and then you just up and TURNED THE FIGHT AROUND.  Actually, good work
on your part, I'm just feeling cross. -- Rose Shell

Inuyasha -- What, you think I shouldn't be a gladiator?  You could have just SAID so,
you know. -- Ghost of Stingaree

What's the deal with this "Persistent Beggar"?  Is he some kind of sacrifice to the
god of dueling?  He's pathetic. -- Rokoral
