                             Notes from the arena champ.

Veni; vidi; vici. I came; I saw; I prayed. I wore purple vestments, so I looked quite 
churchish doing it. Duelmaster! Sort of like drinking all the wine! Praise the one 
above!  

Can I outwit Daphne? Can I at least outpray her? Let us see. Let us see.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, TURKEY DAY MASSACRE has advanced 
3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for NOVEMBER RAIN, who flew up 13 
points in the rankings after mashing FRIENDLY CONSTABLE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JUANITA 
PURDY lost to TEN GALLON HAT and drops 10 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was PAINFUL CAUSE's DAPHNE, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by FATHER BANKOWSKI.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the 
body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid YUPPIE HORDE, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does IAYE really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
LENPROS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
YUPPIE HORDE.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of DAPHNE, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  SERGEANT 4 defied all odds and slew SHEWISH 
GIANT in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SHEWISH 
GIANT's meat is notoriously tough.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take 
your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the IAYE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
