                             Notes from the arena champ.

What a pleasant surprise to be back up on the throne of Dal Shang.  Still undefeated,
but that will end soon enough.  I did manage to meet yet another criteria in my quest
for ADM Induction.  According to the boss (Assurnasirbanipal), I need some more wins
and more fights to meet the rest of the criteria.  $1.25 Q-Staff is the scary one.
The basher/striker matchup has long been dreaded by my manager and he sends his most
pleasant regards (I mean avoids) to the Mighty Ducks.  I'm somewhat curious about
Rune Hellfire, but most likely Rune is a tourney babe and has more FE than $1.25 Q-
Staff.  As for me, I have a single tournament worth of experience under my belt.  I
went a respectable 5-3, but that means I shouldn't be way up here, having only 14 FE.

As always, I'll do my best and Assur has done his best.  Happy Holidays to all.  This
is our time to shine!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DAL SHANG.  MVP award for QUICKDRAW?  
POSSE's proud of him after beating SIGBAN and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  SIGBAN got smashed by QUICKDRAW, and lost 9 points!  Like MIGHTY DUCKS' 
DUCKMAN is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster 5 GOLDEN WARRIORS!  Was 
that a tear I saw in DUCKMAN's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 5 
GOLDEN WARRIORS fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  MIGHTY DUCKS was DAL SHANG's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS?  
MIGHTY DUCKS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can SAND DANCERS' KASSAL TEN DRU be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  
How do you think TEBAS TEN KOGAN feels about being challenged by VIRGINIA, NO SANTA, 
21 points above him?  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in DAL SHANG.  
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA got 5 points after beating TEBAS TEN KOGAN, 21 points below him.   
     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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Blackthorn -- I have no idea how that happened.  Masked Avenger shouldn't have lasted
past minute four. -- Woody

Gobarl -- You are a superb teacher.  I have never had a warrior that dumb learn so
many skills in a fight.  Thank you. -- Woody

Virginia, No Santa -- That's Dark Wing's eighth trip to the infirmary in regular
arena fights.  I'm surprised he's lasted this long (or won as many fights as he has).
-- Woody

Ragolas -- You forgot to DUCK!  Hahahaha.... -- Duckman

Dakoril  -- I think you were supposed to turn, parry, dodge...but then again, that
never worked very well for me, either.  -- $1.25 Q-Staff

5 Golden Warriors -- You learn like a gang of five, too.  Ouch. -- Tebas ten Kogan

Red Ryder -- Good weather for sledding, isn't it? -- Jeri Tavan

Law Man -- But surely you realize that we gladiators are by definition a lawless lot?
-- Ko Lao-Den

My Two Front Teeth -- Handed to you on a silver platter, no doubt.  You're weird,
kid. -- Jaego Sarl

Johnny Sin -- Wow, have you got a nasty temper! -- Kassal ten Dru

Woody -- We're glad to have you here, though we, too, mourn the closing of Simtakka
arena. -- Sand Dancers
P.S.  Don't let anyone tell you that the TOWN closed, the town is doing fine.  Just
no gladiating.

Abominal Snowman -- Can you do a belly dance? -- Gobarl the Philistine

Made It Home -- This is good.  I wouldn't mind going home for the holiday, but the
roads are so bad. -- Sigban

Duckman -- Isn't that...an orange-scented cologne you're wearing? -- Ragolas

$1.25 Q-Staff -- Well, that felt like $2.50 bruising. -- Dakoril

Woody -- Gotta wonder if the Commission is paying as much attention to name sizes
these days. -- Sigban
