                             Notes from the arena champ.

I really wish I had a real person to fight up here, these standbys just don't do it
for me.  This throne is up for the taking if someone cares to make forth an effort.
Maybe I can convince Doc Steele to pop his head back in and take a shot.  Time will
tell.

                                      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!.  Say good-bye to MACHINES OF WAR, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE VOLS stable.  Advancing in the 
rankings was MEDAL OF HONOR B6 who went from last turn's 5-1-0, to this week's record 
of 8-1-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for GEN. JACKSON, who flew up 16 points in the 
rankings after mashing HOFFA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  It's a proud 
day for the DARK PANTHEON stable, as their warrior, FORLORN, 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.  And who is this HOFFA you ask, with 79 
points and a 18-25-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  HAROLD MOON of MEDAL OF 
HONOR B6 had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought HAROLD MOON showed great skill and promise when he beat 
HERMES.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TRANSEL giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
