                             Notes from the arena champ.

I guess I should say something classy and inspirational to you all as I depart from
this city.  Why do that when I can just make fun of you all!  Just kidding.  The evil
Reverend and I will be heading to the illustrious Dark Arena this turn to try and
bring <anything further cut off by HAL>

Reverend Blood:  11-5-17-21-10-9-11 ST.  MO/L, Great Axe, RIP learn, Slash tactic.

Myself:  12-13-5-17-9-7-21 AB.  MO/L, Dagger, ATT learn.

We're off to Home Guard to chill with the rest of Hollowshade's Death Squads.

Later,

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DAL SHANG needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, SAND DANCERS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by POSSE!  Way to go POSSE! 
MVP award for STEELHORSE?  POSSE's proud of him after beating SCREWDRIVER and getting 
19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  OCTAVIA got smashed by MASTER OF THE 
EDGE, and lost 17 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number 
One!  BLUESTONE knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as BLUESTONE killed the Duelmaster, SIXKILLER, leaving 
POSSE in mourning.  MAN-O-WAR gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean 
people might try to kill him, too?  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  STUMBLIN' DRUNK was the most avoided team.  Is a 
134-149-12 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are CUBICLE 
CRUSADERS?  STUMBLIN' DRUNK, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Like, is LAME DUCK popular, or what?  He was challenged the 
most in all of DAL SHANG!  He's got a 0-2-0, is that good?  DILBERT must not be a 
good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged MERRO DOSH.  15 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought DILBERT showed great skill 
and promise when he won victory over MERRO DOSH.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  How cruel!  POSSE heartlessly sent his to REVEREND BLOOD certain fate in 
the Dark Arena.  Is a 14-9-2 bad or something?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because 
LUCKY DUCK had 6-6-0 was no reason for MIGHTY DUCKS to send him to the Dark Arena!  
Stop it!  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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

As far as I can tell, completely mode.

Ran him because he started 21 Con (have graduated a basher with starting 21's in
every stat except Deftness now)

Enjoyed my time in Dal Shang, but this team has nothing left that interests me....
Farewell (at least to this arena). -- Assurnasirbanipal (mgr. Got it For Christmas)

Woody -- By the way Friar came into the fight it almost looked like he was destined
to take a dirt nap....  Happy to oblige. -- Hollowshade

Steelhorse -- Hmm, I believe I've already admired your name, or someone on this team
will have done so.  What to say...?  Ah...good fight. -- Joevina Saril
P.S.  Personally, I didn't care for it, but then, I lost.  Always makes a difference.

Lucky Duck -- I dunno, was it luck?  Or skill, or maybe that fish I had last night.
Might not have been as fresh as it was billed.... -- Merro Dosh

Gunsmoke -- You're a tough son of a gun.  Give you a little experience, and I'm
staying out of your way! -- Lorin ten Koro

Duck and Cover -- By golly, it works! -- Karzin Tyrn
P.S.  Try not to parry with your face.

Lame Duck -- Hey, never say I can't take a hint!  Your bum leg was vulnerable, so I
went for it. -- Killian ten Vir
P.S.  Nothing personal.  Probably if you'd been, oh, Broken-Winged Duck or something,
I'd've gone for your arm.

Oh, no!  Friar Duck dead?  He will be mourned. -- the Sand Dancers

Our congratulations to Sixkiller and Reverend Blood. -- the Sand Dancers
