                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I'm duelmistress, and that is a sad thing.  Not that I'm unworthy, but
that this arena has shrunk to the point where I even had a chance to duel for the
title.  I sincerely hope that I don't have to fight a standby this time.  That would
be a Bad Sign for the arena.  And it was once such a tough place.  Sad.

                                        Lentiria

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JADE MOUNTAIN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
IRRELEVANT?  LEGALESE's proud of him after beating VOLTO LEENI and getting 16 points. 
Talk about yer big time losers!  VOLTO LEENI got smashed by IRRELEVANT, and lost 6 
points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome ALLOCUTION.  Aren't LEGALESE proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of PARANOID ASYLUM 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 DARK TOADS?  
PARANOID ASYLUM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JADE MOUNTAIN ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Arden --- Hah!  Complain about getting free wins against buys and one goes and beats
you!  Hah! -- Cyrus

Lentiria -- Why would we wish to avoid each other?  If we fight, no matter who wins
one of us gets the throne. -- Morganna
P.S.  Congrats on your well deserved win against me last fight.

All -- Huh.  I don't remember the last time I had a losing record for a round in
here.  Those buys get uppity on me. -- TigToad

Woody -- You too see jewels?  TigToad has got to get all of his stables to a clinic,
me thinks. -- Harold

All -- I'll be shutting down the Jug O' Naughts for a while.  Care and take care. --
Still

Red Mosquito -- I hope you're not carrying West Nile Virus or whatever is the current
'demic. -- Essina tyl Vern

Morganna -- Watch out for those secret admirers.  There's a REASON they keep
themselves secret, you know.  And never a good one. -- Lentiria

Harold -- Drat.  I thought for a minute there I had actually won and become
Duelmaster, and then I realized I was looking at the wrong newsletter and some idiot
named WORMY was Duelmaster instead.  I'd've done it much better. -- Woody

Monkey King -- Next time, I'll bring a banana, okay? -- Tabatan

Peacekeeper -- Who wants peace?  Worthless and boring.  You can keep it. -- Volto
Leeni

Harold and TigToad -- This is true.  This arena has been closed for, I think, up to
three turns in a row through lack of participation.  For some reason, the Commission
doesn't see any point in holding matches between just us Sand Dancers and the
standbys. -- Tiba

Arden -- We sympathize with your problem and will not object if you want to challenge
down under these particular circumstances.  We'll even try not to complain in
personals, although head-blows often scramble such intentions.  So watch out where
you hit us! -- the Sand Dancers

13 November 2003
Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
