                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Boy, does that bring back some memories!

                                 Yes, for it is true; 
                           Underdog is Duelmaster for you. 
                        Allow me to tell you my story of life, 
                    and to enlist you in my battle against strife.

     'Underdog' was an anthropomorphic superhero.  The premise was that "humble and 
lovable" Shoeshine Boy, a cartoon dog, was in truth the superhero Underdog.  George S. 
Irving narrated, and comedy actor Wally Cox provided the voices of both Underdog and 
Shoeshine Boy.  When villains threatened, Shoeshine Boy ducked into a telephone booth, 
where he transformed into the caped and costumed hero, destroying the booth in the 
process when his super powers were activated.
     Underdog almost always spoke in rhyme:

                         When help is needed, I am not slow,
                        For it's hip-hip-hip and AWAY I GO!!!

     Underdog's most frequent saying when he appeared was:

                              There's no need to fear--
                                  Underdog is here!

The majority of episodes used a common template as the final scene. A crowd of people 
looking up into the sky would say, "Look in the sky!" "It's a plane!" "It's a bird!" 
After this, an old woman wearing glasses would exclaim, "It's a frog!" Another 
onlooker would respond, "A frog?!?" To this, Underdog replied with these words: Not 
plane, nor bird, nor even frog, It's just little old me ... [at this point, Underdog 
would crash into something, then sheepishly finish] Underdog."

                                   So now you know; 
                               It is time for me to go. 
                            I shall head off to The Isle; 
                       there I will bring relief from the bile.

                                          -- Underdog DMIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARUAK CITY this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as COLORIFIC is pushed out of top team by BULLDOGS, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  The ANIMAL FARM guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to 
be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And 
let's see, BULLWINKLE fought KUNG-FU MASTER and gained 16 points and contributed to 
BULLDOGS' 5-0-0.  QUENTIN has lost to WHITE HAIR, falling 8 points, while helping 
make WRATHMEN II a 0-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, UNDERDOG kept 
SCORPIONS' warrior, ROSIE THE RIVETER, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the AARDVARK & 
CO. stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided AARDVARK & CO. stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was ANIMAL FARM.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
SCORPIONS' warrior BESTARIUS.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARUAK CITY, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARUAK CITY again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
