                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm back again, more to my surprise than anyone else's.  Sorry to hear about the
Oldies vacation, but it shows you that there's only no rest for the wicked.  The non-
wicked can rest all they want.  Interesting challenge win by Rook last turn, a
definite change in his typical strategy.  I wonder what he will do this time as I
send my challenge his way.

2 time Duelmaster of Telorinthe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TELORINTHE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for PRIMORDIAL HULK, who flew up 15 points in the rankings 
after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GROGAN DA TROLL lost to OLOVOR 
PARIS and drops 8 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  KELLUMBO'S INITS. made a challenge against ROOK this week.  In front 
of all the crowds, ROOK took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TELORINTHE arena.  Did 
you hear that NONSUCH HOUSE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of NONSUCH HOUSE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause BAD SIGNS beats feet every time 
NONSUCH HOUSE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this ROOK you ask, with 
109 points and a 18-15-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Proving again that TELORINTHE is not rated 
G, TSUNAMI ALERT of the BAD SIGNS slew the warrior TERENA VEREK in a rather bloody 
bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Congrats to ROOK for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding KELLUMBO'S INITS. a bit of dirt).  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 TELORINTHE 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
