                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's what you get for having unclean personal habits, Sand Crapper.  The arena
maintenance crew was really annoyed with you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out DAYLA KIV to 
see what's new.  MVP award for BARNDIS LORNE?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after 
beating HALF PAST PI and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KINVER TEN 
PALAN's match with SPIDERPIG cost her a loss of 12 points!  Was that a tear I saw in 
TUNA SALAD's eye, as it took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't TREEMA LORNE fit to be 
tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     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.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
