                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So you're back, dreaming of Kadath, are you, Alhazred?  If you want REAL
nightmares, try dreaming of the Karian kingdoms as the Puppeteer tightens his grip.
I wake up in a cold sweat sometimes, dreaming of that.  One of these days, when we
have a workable plan, those of us still alive here are going back to try and take
down the Puppeteer AND the king of Kekoral, his chief minion.  Ha!

                                 Velovorinsal Nors

                                      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!.  GENERATION X is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 
week advancing from 2nd place to 2nd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for VITHAR, who 
flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing MELONDARION NORIS like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
MELONDARION NORIS lost to VITHAR and drops 20 points.  In front of all the crowds, 
PERCIATELLI took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that AESIR was most avoided 
team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of AESIR's warriors, I'm not 
surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  AESIR + Weapons That go 
Boom = VEGGIES + Avoid City.  ARUGULA of VEGGIES had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought ARUGULA showed 
great skill and promise when he lost to ELDARISTAN FARO.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

L.T. Wallbanger -- Feel free to contact me through other means, I'd be glad to share
some of my wisdom, bashers being my favorite style.  My comments after watching you
fight my vegetable...
   -- Don't bother with an off-hand shield (or any off-hand weapon for that matter)
   -- Consider going with lighter armor.  It is my belief that ALE/L is as good for
survival as any other armor.  If you are willing to take a bit more risk, no armor
will make you faster and help conserve endurance better.
   -- Train skills.  Even with low wit, skills are critical to all warriors.
   -- Come out fast.  Most bashers (and you appear to fall in the 'most' category)
win by attacking first and last.  Coming out slow is not taking advantage of the
style's strengths.
Good luck and I hope your manager will be as patient with you as I would.  Basher
Power! -- Assur

L.T. Wallbanger -- You've got 3/4 of a year of experience and you only teach me a
single skill!?!  Cheap! -- Arugula

Nancy -- You're a cute little thing, but too shy. -- Eldaristan Faro

Junkfood Junkie -- Ah, that explains it.  You need more red food.  Red meat.
Tomatoes.  Apples.  Stuff like that.  Even beets. -- Kandaresron Varn

Ulthar -- I practice this new "lucid dreaming" stuff.  Gotcha. -- Melondarion Noris

Watch the Sea -- Why?  It's boring.  It just lies there and sloshes. -- Merisandara
Tiron

This was a strange turn for us.  Five-oh?  Surely I missed a loss somewhere? -- Jorja
