                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  That was graceful and even generous, Star Rod.  I wasn't sure a golem
could do things like that.  Enjoy your trip to the Isle, and take care not to fall
into the lake there.  Or here, either, for that matter.  I understand that immersion
is bad for golems.

                                    Helene Juste

                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 now holds the crown and they are betting they can 
keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for GERDIG IBBINS, who flew up 10 points in the 
rankings after mashing WOODS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was ORVERD QUILL, who dropped 10 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  In front of all the 
crowds, GRETZKY took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause SPORTS GREATS beats feet every time THE MIDDLE WAY 5 smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, GERDIG IBBINS 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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 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

Oh and four!?  Three for the Sports Greats and one for The Middle Way 5?  Oh, me!
Oh, my!  But we were the fifth best team on the move at -40!  Hornswaggle!  Life
sucksbigtime! -- Luigi, Paper Marios

Huh, THAT was disappointing.  The Veteran Mercenary has this trick he does with a
wine cup, two raw eggs, and a fork, and I was hoping he'd teach me THAT.  Instead, a
single measly attack skill.  I had to wash the measles off before I could even use
it. -- Orverd Quill

NOTHING I could do would make the Venomous Concubine tell me where she gets her hair
done.  I'm sure she's annoying on purpose. -- Jeri Lough

Oh, gods, the Khalhums Dwarf.  I'm allergic to dwarves you know.  It's a fur thing.
-- Elinde Goss

Hey, I got sympathy for the Captured Orc, okay?  I was almost an orc myself. --
Gerdig Ibbins

Star Rod -- Well, I WOULD have, but I couldn't figure out how!  There isn't a lot one
can DO with a neuter golem.  Well, maybe I should rephrase that...not much I could do
and talk about in the newsletter! -- Elinde Goss

Bombette -- Soon, my fiery sweet!  But ugly reality has reared its head, and I must
find sufficient silver to pay for a boat.  Way too far to swim! -- Fergus Hill

Tiny Toes -- You're welcome.  We try to do our best most times. -- Lurvayne to'Kass,
a gambler and scribe

Gerdig Ibbins -- You're an overgrown idiot, but you probably already knew that. --
Geroge Maloth, Captured Orc but I'm escaping any day now

Elinde Goss -- You're a fine size, and I like the red hair.  (twirls his mustache)
Maybe I'll carry you off to my lair and have my wicked way with you? -- Oskan
Steeltooth of Khalhums

Jeri Lough -- Do not suppose for an instant that I will give away my secrets to
someone who pursues the unwomanly career of gladiator. -- Devrie Scatha, Concubine
Out of Favor

Orverd Quill -- An encounter with you is an education.  I would not have believed
"stupid" could reach such depths.  I demonstrated NINE superior arena skills, and you
kept on nattering about an egg. -- Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword for Hire

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
