                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it is good to be back.  Would you believe this is my fifth time on this
throne, and somewhere along the line, I TV'd in a tournament, so by my count, I now
have more Political Points than FE.  And while everyone knows my style, what they
don't know is that I am not that big into Parry skills.  In fact, there's 2 other
skill areas that I've learnt more skills in then my parry skills.  But which ones are
they.  Well, I'm not going to tip my pitches.

5-time Duelmaster of Osksi

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 1-1-0 outing, BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  OUR 
HIGHEST HONOR is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 2nd 
place.  Hey everybody, watch out for ARUGULA, who flew up 16 points in the rankings 
after mashing KANDARESRON VARN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KANDARESRON VARN was bested by 
ARUGULA and drops 13 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was AESIR's BRUNHILDE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by PETE 
HARNISCH.  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!  
Did you hear that AESIR was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of AESIR's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES beats feet every time AESIR smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of KANDARESRON 
VARN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in OSKSI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
