                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So, take THAT, Joe Williams!  Okay, it wasn't FORTY whacks, there was time
enough.  You surrendered too soon.  But they were GOOD whacks.

                                  Lizzie Broadaxe

                                      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.  PSYCHO SQUAD now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for DOOPHUS, who flew up 22 points in the rankings 
after mashing BIG BILL BROONZY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BIG BILL BROONZY was defeated by 
DOOPHUS and drops 19 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was BLACK AND BLUES' ROBERT JOHNSON, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by LIZZIE BROADAXE.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRANSEL arena.   
     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, there's the manager of the TRANSEL 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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
