                             Notes from the arena champ.

And here I am again!

     With any luck, one more turn will see me get an invite to ADM.  I'm not positive
that I have the necessary skills, but I think I might.  We'll see.  After that, who
knows what the future might bring?  Probably a room with no windows in the guild
house in Home Guard, but I like to stay positive.

Naked Lunch

                                      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...  Like, SHEWISH BUFFET had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SAND DANCERS!  Way to go 
SAND DANCERS!  MVP award for TIGER JONSALMIN?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after 
beating STEAMED MUSCLES and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
STEAMED MUSCLES got smashed by TIGER JONSALMIN, and lost 7 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think NAKED LUNCH should let URIK DARKHEART be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said LIN 
TIRIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Lost Hope Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say 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.  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

Urik -- I bet your heart wouldn't be so dark if you'd just eat your vegetables. --
Green Giant

Monster Mash?  Monster Mashed...

Naked Lunch -- Well... true.  I guess.  I'd like a little more victory coming my way,
but... you're right.  The back and forth is good.  Keeps us from getting stale.
Which means, it's MY turn now. -- Tiger Jonsalmin

Green Giant -- Ah, but the Ambitious Guard showed us all the way!  And then the
handicapper picked me to enforce it, not a fair match.  But life isn't fair, so there
we are. -- Urik Darkheart

Monster Mash -- And I enjoyed mashing you. -- Korylus Vrae

Plus two standbys defeated, as they should be. -- Silver Slim and Rock Hardman

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
