                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, well, well.  Not only did I survive, but I retained my throne for another
round.  Lord Xiang is tickled pink with me!  I am now perfectly positioned for the
Initiates class, or some such mumble-jumble.  All I know is my manager isn't letting
me fight this turn, or any other turns until AFTER the Winter tourney.  I hope I can
pass this prestigious post along to one of my teammates, either Vlad or Natasha, but
either way, I'm through for now.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LIN TIRIAN.  MVP award for JAMES?  THE 
LEGENDS' proud of him after beating VLAD and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  VLAD's match with JAMES cost him a loss of 15 points!  What a putz!  AIDEN 
fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one 
said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome IRLON.  Aren't SAND DANCERS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because MARTHE 
had 7-10-0 was no reason for LETHAL HERITAGE to send her to the Dark Arena!  Stop it! 
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
