                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's an honor to, once again, be the top dog in this fabulous arena.  Thanks,
Tres, for proving my point about my trusty Hatchet.  There are some people (I am
talking to you, Locutus!) who think you must wield a sword to win these days.  So who
is next?  Maybe Stregoica?  Very young, but seems ready.  Will you take me down?  I
await all challengers.

                                          -- Xavier

                                      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 
IRON HANDED?  CRITICALS' proud of him after beating IMNOTA GOAT and getting 19 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  WINTER ROSE got smashed by RAGE, and lost 9 
points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome STREGOICA.  Aren't DARKSTALKER2 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.  Can 
RUNEBLADES' LOCUTUS be more popular than me?  He 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?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Xavier -- If the town is full of sandbaggers, that is probably good.  It's flood
season, after all.  Nothing like a good sandbag when the river is toying with flood
stage. -- Jorja

Two-one against standbys, one-one against managed warriors.  We've done worse. -- the
