                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Surely I wasn't VICIOUS, Window?  The difference in experience and rank made me
DETERMINED, but that isn't the same thing.  But... have you no defense?  No skill at
parrying?  You're supposed to try to stop me hitting you.  You're even supposed to
try to hit me back.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to QUEEN, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BLUE MOON stable.  
Advancing in the rankings was BLUE MOON who went from last turn's 887-1072-29, to 
this week's record of 892-1072-29.  Hey everybody, watch out for GALILEO, who flew up 
21 points in the rankings after mashing THROUGH THE WINDOW like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Well, everybody's pal CHANTAL moved hers record to 12-10-1 by 
defeating KING RAT in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 11 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!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  For those of you who missed it, Death 
showed up, grabbed THROUGH THE WINDOW by the ear and took him away to a place where 
he won't need a coat.  On a sad note, THROUGH THE WINDOW found an early retirement at 
the hands of GALILEO this week.  I wonder what PAPERBOYS will be doing about it?  
Congrats to CHANTAL for revenging the death of hers teammate (but more importantly, 
feeding KING RAT a bit of dirt).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say 
both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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

Only six total fights today, and two of them involving standbys.  Not great, but hey,
could be worse!  Well, in a way, it WAS worse.  Two-three and a death!  We are not
thrilled! -- Chantal for the rest of Blue Moon
