                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, Tobeornottobe, you forgot to shake your spear.   Nuthin' beats a cranky old
scotsman, right?   MacBeth was my hero, hopefully I last a little longer, but I
challenge a revolution this turn, and I'm not talkin' about them there
liverpuddlians.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KYR'TERR games.  Fortune did not smile upon ZOMBIE 
SQUADS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 11th position in the wake of 
a 0-3-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week AL EAST went 2-0-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  TORNADO 
GOLFING caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested 
WRAITH and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, TORNADO GOLFING put down WRAITH, causing it to lose 17 points of recognition 
in the process.  Although HAUGHA RYDE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious JOCK-IN-THE-BOX.  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KYR'TERR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  PIZZA TOPPINGS is feared.  This much I can say. 
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding PIZZA TOPPINGS.  Indeed it was AL EAST.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  KESTEREL take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in KYR'TERR.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty 
victory.  See, gladiators, how BALLROOM DENTISTRY of BAD COMBINATIONS challenged down 
16 points to KESTEREL.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of BALLROOM 
DENTISTRY.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" 
victory.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in KYR'TERR as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Anchovy Jr -- Not my first choice. -- Dagger

Tornado Golfing -- That could have gone better. -- Ronen

Jalapeno -- Long fights are the best. -- Kesterel

Wraith -- Very skillfully played. -- Kesterel

Okay, these are late.  Sue us.  No, don't sue us, Sue wouldn't like that.  Well, just
blame it on having a high (relatively) arena number and no replacement rollups to be
dealt with.  On the August due-date for this arena, we were otherwise occupied on a
large scale.  All day, you know?  And it was so hot and humid, when we were DONE,
there was no energy left.  Moderately sorry about that. -- Jorja and the Zoo

So, better late than never, we congratulate Tobeornottobe. -- Jorja and the Zoo

Two-three-one.  Well, damn.  The kill was unintentional, and we hope the deceased was
not some godling, although with a name like that... euwh. -- Haugha Ryde
P.S.  Nobody could expect me to defeat a Lord Protector, right?

Outer Gods -- We regret the accidental slaying of Mother of Pus, but really, I think
I might have done you a favor there.  Who needs a mother of puss?  Ick.  A bunch of
white blood cells that ate themselves to death, in, probably, a good cause, but
still. -- Sally Turkel

Tornado Golfing -- When you live in Tornado Alley and are a golfer, what else is
there to do? -- Kali Flower

Lady Redundant Woman, Ma'am -- Er, ah.  I was impressed.  By your weapon,
unfortunately.  It hurts. -- Hanson Foxxe

Matt Cain -- Listen, I don't have TIME for this stuff, okay? -- Igona Keen

Current personals

Red Sox -- Okay, I was easy.  It was an input error which, FINALLY, Jorja is aware
of.  (Thanks to your manager for that!)  So maybe, possibly, this time it might be
corrected.  Or (sigh) not. -- Kali Flower

Two-three for us, and Igona is complaining about the smell of Stinky Feet.  So I told
her, if she'd WON, she could have made him wash them. -- Kali Flower

Ham -- Delicious, I assure you.  I brought my own applesauce, which is weird on a
pizza, maybe, but no weirder than pineapple.  Or (shudder) anchovies. -- Sally Turkel
