                             Notes from the arena champ.

Arkers Armadillos,

Another [BURP] Opportunity to [BURP] Salute [BURP] You from the [BURP] View at the
Top [BURP] while you [BURP] try to [BURP] figure out how to [BURP] rid the [BURP]
Arena of My [BURP] Presence!  Why [BURP] fight the inevitable [BURP] process of My
[BURP] Graduation?  Just [BURP] Enjoy My [BURP] Company While You Still Have [BURP]
Time to [BURP] Witness My Glorious [BURP] Exit From This [BURP] Arena!

Burps Fire Hammer
Your Current [BURP] DuelMaster

P.S.  Where Is Maximillian [BURP] and His [BURP] Northern [BURP] Bad [BURP] Landers?

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARKERS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  I don't wanna hurt anybody's 
feelings or anything, but INNODOGS really goofed with their 0-0-0.  The guys at Z 
GLADIATORZ like really pulled together to get a 3-0-0 this turn, moving up by 4.  Cut 
this out and put it in your scrapbooks, SMITHSONIAN!  'Cause they got 4-0-0 and moved 
up to 4th!  I just can't say enough good things about ROUGH RIDERS.  They went 4-0-2 
their first time, don't slouch, and they've got good oral hygiene!  MVP award for 
RABBIT?  THE ANIMALS' proud of him after beating MORG POTTS and getting 24 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  MORG POTTS' match with RABBIT cost him a loss of 20 
points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all ARKERS.  
She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) LORD BYRON thinks his 9-4-0 
and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was 
that a tear I saw in LORD BYRON's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
BURPS FIRE HAMMER fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  ACID FIRE HAMMERZ was ARKERS' most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what SMITHSONIAN's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from ACID FIRE HAMMERZ, that's fer sher. 
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer!  SKUNK got wasted by 
MARSHMALLOW!  But with a 7-8-0, I guess THE ANIMALS aren't too bummed.  Fight, fight, 
fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Burps Fire -- I had my chances, but your skill won out in the end.  Congrats on a
well fought and well won battle. -- Lord Byron
P.S.  I'm going to be gunnin' for you again.

Oniromancer -- Only someone with a name that long would use a weapon that big!  Good
fight.  It was my lucky day, I guess. -- Pearl Harbor

Congrats to the Duelmaster--Burps Fire Hammer, the Top Career Team--Orcish Idioms,
and the Top Team on The Move--Leviathan.  Unfortunately, we Smithsonians did not earn
the right to be mentioned in such company. -- Curator, Smithsonians

Troll Fire Hammer -- You spell your last name sillily!  It should be "Hammur". --
Hammurabi

Blackheart -- Thanks for the donation. -- War Bond

Malborgia -- And who are you? -- War Bond (obviously having used her and forgotten
her already?)

Sun-Fe -- I am beginning to think I am one worthless boat.  I will try the name Pinta
in any new lives.  I hate to say it, but you were the better warrior in that match.
-- Santa Maria

Good luck to all in The Mailer.  Do Arkers proud! -- Curator
P.S.  I am sending Santa Maria there with replaced sails, hopefully to break her out
of the doldrums.

All -- Hah, not such a great turn for my Z Men!  Zenith got ripped, but Zinger
guffawed an Orc to its knees. -- The Z Man

Morg Potts -- What an incineratedly inciteful persad that was!  I like your style. --
Zinger

Blood Stain -- They say I am worth zip, but I just have to give it a try.  Here goes
nothing. -- Zero

Arkers Adventurers -- May You Receive Your Money's Worth from the Fall Mailer
Tourney!  Decided to Conserve Mine!  Acid Fire Hammerz are Not Going! -- Hammer/
Minister of War/Abattoir Scarlet Knight

Nythia -- You're a bold wench!  I salute a challenge and a fight well done. --
Feordis Ink

Morngrym -- Looking for skills, eh?  Well, I modestly admit that I have a few!  And
I've no problem with sharing, not when someone comes along and pays attention.  Have
at it. -- Imber Lack

Malborgia V -- I keep getting this sort of whisper in my ear saying, "Don't eat or
drink anything it offers you!"  Surely you wouldn't poison an opponent who was
prepared to teach you a skill or two! -- Indior Landis

Sir Martin -- Ouch ouch ouch!  That was...very unpleasant.  Let's avoid it in the
future. -- Kerbin Notts

Dwarf Fire Hammer -- I reckon you need bigger fire to get ME. -- Morg Potts, tempting
fate, but what the heck!

Pearl Harbor -- (indignantly)  Of course not!  You can wear shoes in the winter.
Boots, even! -- Kerbin Notts
