                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good Eveining Arvat, I have defended the throne and so I sit here looking down
upon the less fortunate.  I like this chair.  I hope to ride out the rest of my time
in Arvat sitting upon this exquisite chair.  It is amazing how comfortable it is.
The cushion hugs my gluteous maximus like it has never been hugged before.  Oh the
glory of it.  When you work out as much as I do your bum gets sore.  Nice to have a
seat worthy of my exquisite bum, don't you agree?  I'm sure you do.  How can you NOT
think I have an exquisite bum.  Look (stands, turns bum to audience) is that not the
most exquisite bum you have ever seen?  You know what makes it even better?  When you
have nothing between the cushion and the tushion (drawers fall to the floor); ahhhhh,
sooooo sweeeet... this is the life.  I am going to sit here and enjoy this for a
while.  The rest of you can go about your business preparing your strats on how you
are going to pry my warm firm tush off of this seat.  I have given my first challenge
to Drogon as he is the #1 seed.  I don't remember who the second one went to as they
do not matter much when you are resting your laurals upon such decadence....

Your DM,
     Ungnome Soldier

                                      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 1-0-0 outing, ANGELS OF PAIN has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  It looks 
like the guys(?) at OLD GEEZERS had a good week as they went 5-0-0 to put them in 5th 
place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for GROUND CHUCK, who flew 
up 22 points in the rankings after mashing KID DYNAMITE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PYROMANIAC 
was defeated by STEEL GARTEN and drops 14 points.  HONG KONG PHOOEY got through to 
the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick UNGNOME 
SOLDIER's tail out of the throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was BUFFY'S DINER's HONG KONG PHOOEY, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by UNGNOME SOLDIER.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARVAT arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad STRAGETY, DAMMIT!?   Big bad STRAGETY, 
DAMMIT!.  Big bad STRAGETY, DAMMIT!.  ARVAT's afraid of the big bad STRAGETY, 
DAMMIT!.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch SECRET SQUIRRELS' 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from STRAGETY, 
DAMMIT!.  And who is this DISEMBOWELED DORA you ask, with 86 points and a 18-30-2 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a mismatch, our friend A. POLLY YONN of 
DEVIL ADVOCATES got heroic notions and challenged SKINNY PETE.  What did it get her?  
A 6-3-0 record, that's what.  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 3 
recognition points, A. POLLY YONN shows that a gal doesn't have to be good to get 
places.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  It's not often when you see a 10-3-0 
warrior like HONG KONG PHOOEY kick the bucket.  I wonder if BUFFY'S DINER will 
recover from the blow.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, BLOATED BARBARA 
was mashed by WHEELCHAIR, who let BLOATED BARBARA know that killing members of OLD 
GEEZERS is a no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARVAT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Young Studs -- Now that is something I don't think we've seen before.  All five
warriors dead on a single turn.  It's an achievement.  Not a good one, but it's an
achievement.  Congrats, er..  Condolences? -- Angels & Devils

Old Geezers -- Sorry about all the fights vs. your guys this last turn.  A couple of
challenges, some matchups...  And it seemed like all we did was fight you guys. --
Angels and Devils

Tenacious D -- Looks like you needed the pick of destiny... -- Devlin

Not For Hire -- Shall we try that again, Kimosabe? -- Kid Dynamite

AKA --- I thought I was pretty clear, NOT THE FACE!  It's my bread and butter, dude.
-- Murder By Numbers

Devlin de Talis -- How many times do I have to hit you before you stay down?!? --
Tenacious D

Hong Kong Phooey -- Brother!  I am a fan from WAY BACK! -- Little Dragon

False Teeth -- Interesting weapon choice. -- Pyromaniac

Devlin -- We tried to return to our home arena of Andor, but that whole arena was
razed, and Trump Grand Casino stands there now.  We got a good deal on a condo with a
view, so here we are. -- Stragetizer

Ungnome Soldier -- Thank you for the challenge.  And for not saying, "I think I can
beat you."  *Grin* -- Kid Dynamite

Young Studs -- I don't know if I've ever seen an entire team get wiped out on one
turn before.  If there's a bright side, it's that things can only get better! --
Stragetizer

Disemboweled Dora -- Nice try but no.  I must say I was worried.  Nice that you are
disemboweled and not disemdowed (wink wink) -- DM Ungnome Soldier

Dacia Sandero -- Hasta Sendero was more like it, hope you enjoyed your send off. --
Maid in a Lab

Nydmor Wynze -- Who would have thought that the trick to beating you was tickleing?
Glad I figured it out, the other way was sooooooo tiring. -- Sleuthy Lu

Murder By Numbers -- You are NOT your brother so don't try to be.  Be comfortable in
your place... the basement. -- AKA, the number 1 BA

Federal Agent -- I think you missed a couple of classes in your training.  I hope
you paid attention so that I have a better work out next time. -- The Seal

Just noticed that Drogon is graduating, there was NO need to give him a shot at the
throne since he can't hold it anyway....  DUH! -- Ungnome Soldier
