                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a good try, Rave, but I've got places to go and things to do, a whole new
life to begin.

                                    Rose Shell

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ILLIS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for CHERVIL BEN?  ISLANDERS' proud of him after beating 
PAPARANGI and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  GISBORNE got 
smashed by KIRRALA, and lost 6 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ROSE 
SHELL stopped RAVE dead in hers tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said ILLIS' 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  ILLIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Banana -- The concept of a banana split has appeal tonight.  A lot, now that I let
myself dwell on it.  Maybe I'll go have one. -- Kirrala

Harper -- That seems an extreme reaction.  You were just supposed to curse a couple
of times, yell at the orderlies, and come back for another match.  Not DIE. --
Stingaree
P.S.  Maybe you should've worn armor?

Paparangi -- If you say so. -- Chervil Ben, totally confused

Ah, fooey!  A Persistent Beggar, who needs him? -- Sylvester

We salute our lone tourney competitor. -- Jorja and the Islanders
