                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Seems kinda silly, doesn't it?

                                      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 WIGRAM?  
KIWI CONNECTION's proud of him after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 14 points.  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  SHANA TWO-KNIVES stopped KHALHUMS DWARF dead 
in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said LIN TIRIAN's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Lost Hope Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Four-one against the standbys this time.  That's better.  Of course, managed
opponents would be good, too, but I guess we can't have everything. -- the Sand
