                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, gods, I hate fighting the Venomous Concubine.  He's a grubby little dwarf,
and he hates elves, of which I am a splendid example, and the whole encounter is just
incredibly sordid.

                                   Kolbert Moon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VALAMANTIS to 
see what's new.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 
4-0-0.  Keep it up, ZOMBIE SQUAD!  MVP award for ROSWELL?  COVER-UP's proud of it 
after beating HARBERT KREIGH and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
HARBERT KREIGH got smashed by ROSWELL, and lost 9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in 
INFERNO's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't KOLBERT MOON fit to be 
tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
Drunkard's Guild?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

In view of Kolbert's comment about the Venomous Concubine being a (male) dwarf, I
find it interesting the the Khalhums Dwarf is human.  Somebody really scrambled the
racial pool here. -- Imrom Llews

The Veteran Mercenary's been drinking to many beers.  He traded his six-pack figure
for a small keg. -- Neevan Povar

They don't call that guy a Dangerous Criminal for no reason. -- Harbert Kreigh

Beggars, bah.  A waste of my time. -- Jimmy Low
