                             Notes from the arena champ.

That was quite an entertaining fight, Baikal s'Kren.  Based on our first fight, I 
wasn't hopeful things would turn out well, but good fortune rained down on me and I 
now find myself the city's champion.  It seems likely we'll fight again next turn, 
unless your manager likes to send graduates-to-be to the Dark Arena.  Congrats on your 
invite.  I have quite a bit of time left in Dayla Kiv before my much anticipated 
invitation comes. 

I do wish this arena was more populated but as the kids today say, "It is what it is."  
I, of course, will gladly fight whomever the commission sends against me.  Fight well, 
Dayla Kiv!  Fight well! 

                                           -- Erebus Impact 

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ARDIA LI, who flew 
up 20 points in the rankings after mashing LALVO OF THE PEN like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BAIKAL S'KREN, who 
dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with REGALUS FURY.  
It's a proud day for the BATTLEAXE STAMPEDE stable, as their warrior, KNOS THE AXE, 
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 DAYLA KIV arena.   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in DAYLA KIV have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Jorja and the Sand Dancers -- My heartfelt regrets on the loss of Elon Li.  I had become fond of her in the what, four fights in a row we had?  It certainly wasn't my intent to send her to the next reality.  Condolences to you and to her teammates. -- Jak

Pelis the Old -- I, for one, am against this practice of sending those of your advanced years into the arena to fight.  I don't know what the commission is thinking.  Something should be done about this. -- Regalus Fury

Red Kogan -- And we meet again.  You came close to getting the jump this time.  Shed some of that armor, maybe :) -- Tane
P.S. I was referring to the fight report from Turn 587 (we've fought so often I was looking at the one from two turns previous rather than the most recent one).  Nonetheless, in that fight you were "muttering curses under your breath."  And last turn (589

Peldan Djian -- Whoa, wasn't expecting to win that one.  Thanks for the victory and the skills. -- Shewish Horror

Erebus Impact -- Thank you.  Now YOU can do the "column." -- Baikal s'Kren, looking forward to retirement

Jakarta Fair -- I didn't need that. -- Ghost of Elon Li

Tane -- Those fans!  I'd like to show THEM a thing or two. -- Red Kogan

Shewish Horror -- Yep, you're horrible. -- Peldan Djian

Ravana -- I was told always to be nice to girls and not hit them, even when they hit me.  This is a great handicap. -- Tiogan Crow

Tane -- We could find a couple of women and double date. -- Red Kogan
