                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Huh, I thought I had a chance to put down one of those pesky Arena Felines that
are always clawing up the furniture, but it turned out to be a mere Wild Oat, so I
let it live.

                                   Shana the Knife

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LIN TIRIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
SINISTER?  THE BROTHERHOOD's proud of him after beating OSKSI NOBLE and getting 17 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DEELAR MARION got smashed by MR. CLEAN, and 
lost 9 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all LIN 
TIRIAN.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, ILLUSIONIST 
must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the Duelmaster from SAND DANCERS.  Does this 
gal have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in ILLUSIONIST's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't SHANA THE KNIFE 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.  DOMINATION was the most avoided team.  Is a 52-28-6 record really 
that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are MAGIC ARTISTS?  DOMINATION, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     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 you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Shana The Knife -- Congratulations, Champ! -- Houdini and The Magic Artists

Cadmus -- Nice record. -- Houdini

Mirial -- Again and again and again ........ -- Medicine Man

Meat Hook -- I got my hooks into you. -- Conjurer

Jorja & Houdini -- You two jocular jugglers are kickin' my butt!  Actually, my hat's
off to you both as I can't recall ever losing to two rippers on the same turn.  Did I
miss some kind of ripper renaissance?  Feels like the Twilight Zone.  Maybe Medicine
Man spiked my tea.  The colors... -- Cadmus

Jorja -- I'm curious how Mirial can be adamant, raging, and indifferent at the same
time.  I think you hit the oxymoron trifecta. -- Cadmus

Houdini/FTF Manager (?) -- You have me at a disadvantage, sir.  While I appreciate
your recognition, I regret my inability to place you.  If it's not a trade secret...
-- Cadmus

     He's with the Consortium.

Well, the Dishonest Justice is part elf, so what can you expect?  Thoroughly
unreliable, elves. -- Deelar Marion

Medicine Man -- Yes, I heard you.  "Take two aspirins and come back next week."  Bah.
-- Mirial Adamant

The Mordant Deserter is pathetic. -- Chelbagheera

Abjurer -- (grump) -- Shana

Cadmus -- I know.  Too bad there aren't many bones connected on here! -- Jorja

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
