                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I was to speechless when I found out that I had become Duelmaster.  Now I
am surprised taht I still hold the title.  I never thought I would become Duelmaster,
let alone get the title before Debarrows.  Goes to show that a woman can surpass a
man at times.

                      Glindora

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ZUKAL. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say good-bye to 
CRIMSON DEATH, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SERPENTS HOLD 
3 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for ODDLY ELEGANT, who flew up 20 points in the 
rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy. 
And falling like a basher in the top ten was PORTHOS, who dropped 17 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BODY LANGUAGE.  It's a proud day for the 
BATTEL BLADES stable, as their warrior, MIDNIGHT, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that CRIMSON DEATH was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CRIMSON DEATH's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause PAPERBOYS beats feet every time 
CRIMSON DEATH smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  QUEEN has one more week to get their bloodfeud off.  I 
talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'FREDDIE who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  
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 ZUKAL 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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Blue Streak -- I just wanted to hold the title a little bit longer.  Oh and by the
way, thank you for teaching me. -- Glindora

Fang -- You bit me!  I guess I will have to deal with this ugly thing. -- Athos

Recoil -- I believe I straightened you out.  It just took me time to do that. --
Porthos

Blue Funk -- I am glad my Blue Funk is over.  I finally have some kind of winning
streak. -- Glindora

Through the Window -- How many time must I defeat you before you ralize you can not
beat me?  Or is it that you just learn something each time I win? -- Debarrows

Rigel Stone -- Don't just stand there, otherwise I will win with only doing a
scratch. -- Nojord

Our congratulations to Midnight. -- Jorja and the Blue Moon crew

Glindora -- Somehow... that wasn't fun. -- Blue Streak

Midnight -- Oh, well, if you're GRADUATING, that explains a lot. -- Blue Funk

Faerie King -- That was extremely unpleasant, and quite unnecessary.  I would have
surrendered if you'd given me a chance. -- Ghost of Clarissa Teal

Hangman -- Pushy, aren't you? -- The Tall Man

Nojord -- That wraps up an oh-fer turn, and true to tradition, my teammates, who also
lost, mind you, will blame me for it because I was the LAST loss. -- Rigel Stone,
unfairly victimized
