                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Apparently the gods couldn't see a golem as an appropriate duelmaster in Jhelum
at the bottom of the year, so here I am.

                                     Red Hammer

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  TRIBAL 
COUNCIL now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for WAR AND PEACE, who flew up 32 points in the rankings after mashing 
IRONSIDE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  IRONSIDE was defeated by WAR AND PEACE and drops 25 
points.  ARMITAGE got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than 
anxious to kick RED HAMMER's tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for the KIWI 
CONNECTION stable, as their warrior, ARMITAGE, 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 JHELUM arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHELUM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
