                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello Arkers
     Didn;t think I'd hold the throne and much less graduate!!  Khisanth is very
proud of me!!  Not gonna give my stats away but I have a 4 con!  I'm off to the Isle
and will probably prep for a tourney or two but not sure I'll ever see primus.  :(
Well anyway...  Be well Arkers, and do us proud at the mail in!!

                    Dead Lee

                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ZEPHYR, who flew 
up 18 points in the rankings after mashing M. CHARDINEE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  IMA SLAYER 
was overcame by ALAMO and drops 3 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was 
DEAD LEE.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  CONFIDENCE 
got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick 
DEAD LEE's tail out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal DEAD LEE moved his record 
to 10-2-0 by defeating CONFIDENCE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 14 
recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid YOU PAY I SLAY, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does ARKERS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SMITHSONIAN beats feet every time YOU PAY I SLAY 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARKERS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
