                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I hate tourneys so much that I wish I could just graduate and be able to retire.
I've got 56 pps and a 24-2 record, so what's the problem? Ratings?  Certain ratings?
Why?  Obviously I don't need whatever it is.  Buncha podunks running The Commission
nowadays.
    TC says I have to say something else, so here are me and my teammates at birth,
of which I am the only one worth anything.  (Obviously)
ST - 9,11,11,12,13 (+ 4 total bumps)
CN - 2,9,19,14,20 (+1 total bump)
SZ  - 9,9,9,9,9 (really - all nines) (+3 total bumps - just kidding!)
WT - 7,15,17,17,21 (+ 2 total bumps) (Can you guess which is me? Hah!)
WL - 9,9,9,16,21 (+2 total bumps)
SP - 8,9,10,12,14 (no bumps - Who needs speed?)
DF - 9,11,11,17,21 (+2 total bumps)
     Did you really care about all that?  Me, neither.  But it made for a nice sized
DM Column.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAYLA 
KIV.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BLOODGAMES, who flew up 27 points in the rankings after 
mashing SNOWBALL V like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SNOWBALL V was bested by BLOODGAMES and drops 
23 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was TAX MAIL-IN.  If this keeps up, 
our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't 
sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  TAX MAIL-IN made a challenge against KORBIN TEN 
BARAN this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was SAND DANCERS' KORBIN TEN BARAN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
TAX MAIL-IN.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at 
bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad MEDAL OF  HONOR?  Big bad MEDAL 
OF HONOR.  Big bad MEDAL OF HONOR.  DAYLA KIV's afraid of the big bad MEDAL OF HONOR. 
Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
I HATE TOURNEYS beats feet every time MEDAL OF HONOR smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  For those of you who missed it, Death 
showed up, grabbed JACK PENDELTON by the ear and took him away to a place where he 
won't need a coat.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAYLA KIV 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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
