                             Notes from the arena champ.

I have just one thing to say.  R-E-L-A-X, just relax now that I'm on the throne.  Or, 
I guess I am on the throne because of Relax and his bizarre challenge.  Maybe you 
don't know much about how to fight, but a warrior of my style with a record like mine 
should tell you something.  But, I guess if you don't listen, doesn't matter what you 
get told. 

What a unique honor to be the Duelmaster of the great Niytyole Hold arena.  An arena 
named after the home of the mighty Allied Axis, Niytyole Island. As expected, I will 
serve with distinction, and I will hold the title until graduation.  According to our 
records, I am the 567th Duelmaster from the Allied Axis.  An amazing feat even for the 
mighty Allied Axis.

When I am not fighting I like to spend my time working in information.  I very much 
enjoy looking at information and then changing it, maybe even changing it incorrectly.  
Does that really chap your withered hide Consortium?  All your gas over those months 
and hear I sit, the epitome of scandal and I sit the throne.  I'm probably going to 
sneak into the archives and make an adjustment to my information, just because I can, 
I have those skills, and I'm trained for the job.

I'll tell you more about information next week.

                                    -- Duelmaster and data manipulator extraordinaire,
                                       The Database Editor

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in NORTH 
FORK.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  It was a 
tough week for BIG IDEA, to drop 5 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 
3-2-0 outing, WEIRD ALCHEMY has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the 
rankings was WHITE WOLVES who went from last turn's 24-33-0, to this week's record of 
28-34-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for STYLE CHANGER, who flew up 29 points in the 
rankings after mashing RELAX like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was HUMBUG, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with SEX (I'M A).  It's a proud day for the BAD BEATS stable, 
as their warrior, BUSTED ACES, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid BIG IDEA, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NORTH FORK really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ROYAL FLUSH's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from BIG IDEA.  And who is this THE SAFETY 
DANCE you ask, with 51 points and a 8-4-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, P-NUT FIREBEARD went after GRANULO, who was 
higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust settled, P-NUT FIREBEARD was bested by 
GRANULO.  BLINDING MAN of BIG LAKE GROOVE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought BLINDING MAN 
showed great skill and promise when he beat MUNCHKIN.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Proving again that NORTH FORK is 
not rated G, STYLE CHANGER of the BIG LAKE GROOVE slew the warrior RELAX in a rather 
bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  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

2 in the Adepts Tourney. -- White Wolves

Street Legal -- There is no honour in beating an opponent new to the arena!  I enjoyed 
our encounter but would advise you to wear some armour in future.  Good luck on the 
sands of the arena! -- Dionexus

All Greeting

Street Legal the NPC, that was fun. I liked messing with you. -- Ding Dong

We all know what Kaitlyn Demer dressed up as for Halloween!!  Ha! Ha! -- Scorpio

Consodomite -- Isn't that cute, you and Dorkio getting along.  Although, you may be 
the only person to ever accuse the dullard known as Dorkio of uttering "intelligent 
remarks", but then again, they would probably be intelligent to you.  You are not much 
smarter than that idiot, which is saying something.  They say there is someone for 
everyone, glad you and Dorkio found each other. -- Den
