                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Sentinel returns to the throne!
     After the last group graduated we were all young, so it took a while for one of
us to return to the top.  Having the entire arena be young helped a bit as well, I
suppose.  But I prefer to think of it as my talent.  At least that is how Dellea
describes it under the moon on the beach.  Talent and skill.  On the sands.
     Will I be able to keep the throne?  In part it probably depends on if the
tourney folks return.  Will the Church send forth its army of ladies?  Or will I face
the veteran mercenary again?
     Not one Sentinel made the journey to the tournament this time.  Perhaps someone
else can bring home the gold for Bonsur?
     For now, I remain,

          Skara Brae, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      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!.  A stormcloud is brewing over the FORCE VENGERS 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-1-0 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 0-0-0 outing, THE FIRM has advanced 3 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BELLAMORE, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal. 
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  OZAWINDIB was subdued by 
PEARL WHITE and drops 8 points.  Well, everybody's pal SKARA BRAE moved his record to 
11-3-2 by defeating VENOMOUS GIGOLO in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid DEMONS & DEVILS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does BONSUR really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DEMONS & DEVILS + Weapons 
That go Boom = SENTINELS + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the BONSUR 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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Saw Horse -- The loss I can understand given the difference in FE, even if you do 
just stand there like a... saw horse.  But giving away at least 10FE you couldn't
teach me more?  Ridiculous! -- Anzahanzek, the eager, but disappointed, student

Pearl White -- There are many of us who appreciate all you do for our records.
Perhaps I could demonstrate my thanks sometime at the Cabana? -- Olaf

Maiden Michelle -- What is with all the women in this place?  I wouldn't mind, but
most of you seem to get grumpy and carry blades.  That isn't quite what I mean when I
say, "feisty!"  Ouch. -- Balboa the bruised

Well, if I can't beat anyone else, at least I can beat up on those persistant
beggars. -- Ozawindib

     It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

Cutter -- Dwarves!  Pah.  Upstarts.  Although for a dwarven upstart, you didn't do
badly, and at least your beard is neatly trimmed. -- Annalee

Dare Devil -- (with a wiggle of her hips and a flutter of eyelashes)  Surely you
don't think *I* am a devil? -- Mona from Maui

Annie Awl -- That was, as is not at all surprising, awlful. -- Dellea Dover

Woodchip Willa -- You just went on and ON and *O*N*.  It was too much. -- Bellamore

Olaf -- That was embarrassing, unless you have hidden tourney fights.  Even if you
do* have hidden fights, it was still embarrassing.  Perhaps I haven't been drinking
enough smash lately.... -- Pearl White
