                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Honest, I wasn't laughing, Rave.  Well, I was laughing, but not at you.  I just
remembered, well, I'd probably better not tell you, because I was laughing at
someone, and we don't want to embarrass that person.  But it wasn't you.  Why would
I?  True, that hair-do is, um, unusual, but still, not a laughing matter.

                                      Kirrala

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ILLIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, BEACH BOB fought MORDANT DESERTER and gained 13 points and 
contributed to ISLANDERS' 2-3-0.  SYLVESTER has lost to MORDANT DESERTER, falling 11 
points, while helping make ISLANDERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and KIRRALA remains ILLIS' top warrior for another turn.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty 
Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in ILLIS today as LA JOLLA was bid farewell 
to a 12-8-1 warrior, with DOOMIE JUGGERNAUT of ILLIS standing silent and pensive.  
We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know 
who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
