                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Cle, I curl the lip in scorn and hope never to see you again.  A goal
which I shall work toward by NOT going to the Isle.  I'm sure I can find employment
elsewhere--and employment I must have, because Jorja flatly refuses to support
gladiators in retirement.  Oh, well.

                                    Tom-Tom Tora

P.S.  Born to scum?  Say it isn't so!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  AMEN-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
ELEPHANT DUNG?  WILD KINGDOM's proud of him after beating M.T. LANE and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  VALNAKAUR's match with VIRGINAL CONCUBINE cost 
him a loss of 18 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
TOM-TOM TORA should let CLE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  WAYFARERS was 
AMEN-TEI's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are UN?  WAYFARERS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!   
     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!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  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

Cieza de Leon -- Drat.  Jorja said I should "pounce" on you, she said it would be
appropriate, but I just don't do pounces.  I trust that a mere ordinary win is
sufficient? -- Lennalgire

Airavata -- Bleh.  Looks like my bag of tricks was M.T. that time. -- M.T. Lane

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  You know, having seen him in bar brawls, I'm sometimes
surprised by his much less ept performance in the arena.  It must be the idea of
"rules." -- Valnakaur

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS

ELEPHANT DUNG viciously subdued M.T. LANE in a 6 minute Challenge fight.
TOM-TOM TORA savagely defeated CLE in a crowd pleasing 5 minute expert's Title fight.
VALNAKAUR was overpowered by VIRGINAL CONCUBINE in a 1 minute one-sided fight.
BERRA won victory over LENNALGIRE in a crowd pleasing 3 minute fight.
