                             Notes from the arena champ.

By the time this prints, I will be finished being a tool for one of Assur's pet 
projects.  Maybe now he'll let me fight for myself.  Even if he doesn't renew my 
contract at graduation, I can retire with land and a title.  Seems good enough for my 
modest desires.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 4-1-0 outing, CONSORTIUM CREW has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for CURATOR, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
ROGUE WAVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  ROGUE WAVE was defeated by CURATOR and drops 16 
points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the 
most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  ACE got through to the Duelmaster 
this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick TIMMY's tail out of the throne! 
It's a proud day for the CONSORTIUM CREW stable, as their warrior, ACE, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TALCAMA arena.  Did you 
hear that SHEPHERDS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of SHEPHERDS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause CONSORTIUM CREW beats feet every time SHEPHERDS 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that 
had IVAN KOLOFF challenge up 47 points in the rankings to take on PICK HARD?  Some 
advice to IVAN KOLOFF.  Please don't challenge up 47 points to fight a 14-2-2 fighter 
like, say PICK HARD.  (Okay, so it may be a little late).   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TALCAMA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
