                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Medium Shield?  Are they NUTS?  The Commission staff is a lot more psycho than
WE are.
     So, Robert Johnson, are you any relation to Howard?  I've been wanting to talk
to Howard about a few things, like the quality of service in some of his motels.

                                   Sweet Freddy

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DOOPHUS, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing 
BUMBLE-FINGERS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was ROBERT JOHNSON, who dropped 5 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with INK AND STEEL.  In front of all the crowds, JOE WILLIAMS took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 TRANSEL arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid PSYCHO SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does TRANSEL really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch T 
IS FOR ...'s act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
PSYCHO SQUAD.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Liam -- It came out to six and a half inches of rain here!  Healed some of the cracks
in the yard, which is good, I was worried about losing the cat down 'em. -- Jorja

Blasphemy -- (smirk) -- Shirley Knott

Liam -- Yep, that's what we've got the warrior societies for.  Jade Eye, Shadow
Dragon (maybe, I have my doubts about them sometimes, their politics are strange...
but they CAN and WILL fight), even the tight-laced Unicorn Society.  Even the ones
that don't count as "paladin" societies (WE call them Temple Knights, but it seems to
be the same thing) can put up a good fight. -- Jorja
P.S.  What would the Grey Witch want with a cow?  *I* have had cows, and while it's
convenient to get the milk VERY FRESH, they're a lot of trouble to have around.

Peregrine Firehawk?  Fancy name for a standby. -- Lizzie Broadaxe

Obviously this "Thetas Toman" is a troublemaker.  Probably associated with the tax
man.  But I attended to him. -- Son of John

Jumbo -- Pure luck!  You tripped and fell on me, that's all it was. -- Shirley Knott

Weasel -- Uh... how'd you do that? -- Doophus
