                             Notes from the arena champ.

Good day my subjects.  It is a great day in Arvat.  The great and powerful me has 
attained the throne and immortality all in one tremendous swing of my scimitar, which 
is apparently NOT my favorite weapon.  Dominatus warned me about the commission heads 
here in Arvat, they like to assign the stupid short sword as the weapon of choice for 
Aimed Blows....maybe it is because it is the only way it will be a fair fight vs the 
rest of you non-rodents.  Well, Dom was right, short sword is indeed what they 
assigned, bah!  Not sure what the commission is thinking when they say I should fight 
with a very low desire to attack...? really?  and only move around at a moderate 
pace....again, really?  That is fine if you want to lose I guess, but real warriors 
come out hard and fast, take no names, take no prisoners...except the females...right 
guys?  Any way, I leave with this last chance to face the awesomeness of me in one 
last showing here in Arvat, I cast my challenge to the top ranked active warrior, 
Rocky Gibraltar, he will probably post an avoid my direction so I sent two challenges 
his direction in hopes of busting that avoid.  It works on Devils and Angels, why not 
friendly foes?

Til we meet again, your Duelmaster for one turn,

                               -- Avenger 
                                  (9(1)-9-7-17-17-9-17 Norm/Norm, MAS ATT, EX RIP/PAR)

                                      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 3-1-0 outing, DEVIL ADVOCATES has advanced 4 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for NIGHTMARE, who flew up 18 
points in the rankings after mashing SIR BLACK KNIGHT like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BATTLE HACKS, who dropped 12 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ELLE D. ABELO.  What does 
the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged 
apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was FRIEND OR FOE?'s ROCKY GIBRALTAR, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by AVENGER.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try 
and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad SECRET SQUIRRELS?  Big bad SECRET SQUIRRELS.  Big bad SECRET SQUIRRELS.  
ARVAT's afraid of the big bad SECRET SQUIRRELS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not 
be funny, but catch ANGELS OF PAIN's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from SECRET SQUIRRELS.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental 
capacity that had NUTCASE challenge up 33 points in the rankings to take on LEVERAGE? 
A Carrion Bird Sellout:  NUTCASE 16-9-0 fights LEVERAGE 14-13-4.  (BYOB)  
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARVAT 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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
