                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Five and oh against standbys this time.  Such is life in a Very Small Arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LIN TIRIAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for WIGRAM?  KIWI CONNECTION's proud of him after beating 
DISHONEST JUSTICE and getting 10 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
CHELBAGHEERA's match with VENEMOUS CONCUBINE cost her a loss of 18 points!  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENEMOUS CONCUBINE, and SHANA TWO-KNIVES 
has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  RED COULTER of SAND DANCERS takes SHANA 
TWO-KNIVES' place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of SHANA 
TWO-KNIVES?  Oh, all right.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     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.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
