                             Notes from the arena champ.

Man talk about something I didn't think would happen, figured I'd be dead way before
now.  Speaking of the dead.  I'm truly sorry about the unwanted death of MirialSteel
we kinda grew-up here together.  She will be missed.

                        Your DM,
                            Clint

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in LIN TIRIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for OOKLA THE 
MOK?  SUPER SCIENCE's proud of him after beating DEAN and getting 16 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  DEAN's match with OOKLA THE MOK cost him a loss of 9 points! 
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think CLINT should let JIGGER KREE 
be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being 
a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of THE LEGENDS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  I don't know what SUPER SCIENCE's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE LEGENDS, that's fer sher.  Can 
THE LEGENDS' FRANK be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out ROGAR THORFIN 
challenged SHANA THE KNIFE.  After all, haven't DOMINATION and SAND DANCERS had a 
long standing duel in LIN TIRIAN?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
SHANA THE KNIFE wants me to write about it since she was beat by ROGAR THORFIN.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     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

Necromancer and Illusionist did their tricks!   More to come, Lin Tirian.  Probably
after the mailer, as four are now timed. -- Houdini

Clint -- Damn you!  I'll get you for this! -- Ghost of Mirial Steel, too furious to
die

Clint -- Normally, I would say you have little to fear from Mirial's ghost, but...
she isn't or wasn't quite normal, you see.  If she says she'll be back, she well.  Of
course, starting over at the bottom is not likely to bring her into conflict with
you, but...watch your back off the sands. -- Jorja, Sand Dancers

Illusionist -- Wow, what passion and grace!  It was an honor to be your straight man,
ma'am. -- Jigger Kree
P.S.  I'm a sucker for orcish women anyway.

Sammy -- Curse you!  I wanted to take my dagger and shave you close! -- Shana the
Knife
P.S.  One of the spy reporters told me to.

Necromancer -- That isn't "art," lady.  That's sicko stuff.  Even I know that.  I may
be a serial killer, but I always killed 'em clean. -- Chalbaeg

World B Free -- Oh yeah?  Well the world ISN'T free, so how about a few coppers, you
cheapskate. -- an annoyed and Persistent Beggar

Olaf Thorfin -- Don't you try to dominate ME, you pig.  I've got amnesty, I have.
Another year in the arena, and I'm home free. -- a former resident of Mordant

Jorja -- Sorry, Clint has fought this way since day one.  Bloodfeud if you wish, but
remember the streets of heaven now has one too many angels. -- Loch Ness

Shana -- We just have to much fun together. -- Sammy

Magic -- Welcome to the real "showtime". -- Dean
P.S.  Quit palming the ball.

D.J. -- He, way to go, Celtic Pride. -- Stan

Rogar Thorfin -- What can I say, things like that happens sometimes. -- Frank

Old School Ball -- Sorry, I haven't said welcome before now.  Couldn't help notice
that Bird didn't fight last time out. -- Loch Ness, mgr. the Legends
P.S.  You do know his nickname, right? "grin"

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
