                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, all and sundry!  Like it or not, I'm back again to run my mouth whilst I
can, so come one, come all and try to wrest this title from me if you want me to shut
my yap.

Last turn, your lovely Duelmistress valiantly defended said title against Jurine's
favorite orc, Chillili Ches.   Boy, she's so ugly, when she walks into a room, MICE
jump on chairs!  One has to wonder how she's the most popular fighter!  Just kidding,
Chilli.  We all still love you, even if you're not as striking as I!  (there are
scattered boos and groans for Amazonia)  Okay, bad pun...

It looks like Blade and Blood has left us, robbing me of my bloodfeud, the louts.
And I see Fear Factory and Clan Ghost Bears creeping up through the ranks to knock my
head in, so I better cut this short and get back to practice.

L'arene m'attend,

Amazonia

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JURINE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  PHILANTHROPISTS like 
really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  Way to go!  MVP award for LOCKENLOAD? 
CLAN GHOST BEARS' proud of him after beating LAELKORISSA and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  BERNIE got smashed by HOLD, and lost 21 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  CHILLILI CHES knows this. 
She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think JADRA should let CHILLILI CHES be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said JURINE's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  THE FRENCHMEN 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 73-95-6 record really that scary?  Is there some 
deep dark secret why CLAN GHOST BEARS' been avoiding THE FRENCHMEN so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?  Like, is CHILLILI CHES popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of JURINE!  She's got a 19-37-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

going through my head when I wrote that! -- Amazonia

increased?  Oh well... maybe they were laughing WITH me. -- Molly Malone

Guillotine -- May I call you Gil?  They tell me I should be afraid of you, Gil, but
the honest truth is, I'm too tired.  Some other time, okay? -- Laelkorissa
