                             Notes from the arena champ.

Kat,

It was only a matter of time before you hit me; well done.  For what it's worth, I was 
doing something unconventional (and it didn't work).  I have only luck to thank for 
that victory.

Until we fight again,

                                          -- Solar Sister

P.S. Would you consider fighting unarmed, along with me, one of these times?  It would 
be fun!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KYR'TERR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for KESTEREL?  
NIGHTHAWKS' proud of her after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 15 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  BLACKHAWK got smashed by WHO ME, and lost 6 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  SOLAR SISTER stopped KAT dead in hers tracks!  
Who was the wiseguy that said KYR'TERR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of NIGHTHAWKS must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are HAZAARDS OF CLONING?  NIGHTHAWKS, an easy team to beat if I 
ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can WHY's SHALL BE be more 
popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     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!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
