                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I guess with a name like Black Death, I shouldn't be surprised that I'm forced
to fight arena stand-ins.  I walk down the street and people shutter their shops.  I
stop for a meal at a tavern and the health inspectors aren't far behind.
     It's a lonely life.  At least I have my pet rats.

Black Death

                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for LUCIA NERON, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was SKUNK CREEK, who 
dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MOONGLUM.  It's 
a proud day for the HISTORICAL KOLACT stable, as their warrior, GOODY TWOSHOES, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad BIG SHOTS?  Big bad BIG SHOTS.  Big bad BIG SHOTS.  KALTOS' afraid of the 
big bad BIG SHOTS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
HISTORICAL KOLACT's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from BIG SHOTS.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, OSWALD QUORN 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KALTOS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Kaltos -- It's good to be back.  Nothing makes me forget about disappointment in the
tourney like disappointment in the arena. -- Common Criminal

Two-three this time, which is actually better.  Oh, well.  At least one of the wins
was MINE, even if the other one was Ugly Walt again.  We'll take it. -- Oswald Quorn
P.S.  I hope you're not TOO rare, Rare Breed.  I enjoyed defeating you.
