                             Notes from the arena champ.

Wow, what a week!  First I kill some guy in the arena, then the Duelmastership just
falls into my lap.  But hey, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Sorry about my offing Quantum, Qubit.  (Well, OK, I'm not *that* sorry, but the boss
says I gotta apologize anyway.  Sometimes that guy's too much of a "gentleman," if
you ask me.)  It's a shame you don't get a bloodfeud shot this week, seeing as how
you don't have anyone anywhere near the challenger champs.

Well, I guess I oughta put out a challenge of some kind, seeing as how I'm the top
dog here now.  So, let's see if I can't put a blemish on that 10-0 record of Cup
O'Pizza's.  Besides, I think the kid could use a fight or two against some *real*
competition.

All for now, boys and girls.  Remember:  If you can't fight in daylight, you'll fight
by torchlight.  (Hey, I wanted to be a spy reporter when I was a kid.  Gimme a break,
would you?)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  For 
every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at SPRINGBORN, 
who went down to 4th from 9th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, 
TOWNSVILLAINS has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was 
SIR AGLIO who went from last turn's 658-497-28, to this week's record of 661-498-28.  
Hey everybody, watch out for SLIME GIGGLE, who flew up 17 points in the rankings 
after mashing QAEDA, AL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was HELL BLAZER, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with QUADRICEPS.  STORMBLADE got through to the Duelmaster 
this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick OJO TANGO's tail out of the 
throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was 
THUNDERSTRIKERS' STORMBLADE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by OJO 
TANGO.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad  MEGAWARRIORS?  Big bad 
MEGAWARRIORS.  Big bad MEGAWARRIORS.  KOLACT's afraid of the big bad MEGAWARRIORS.  
Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
DEVIL'S ADVOCATE beats feet every time MEGAWARRIORS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh? 
And who is this TYCHO you ask, with 82 points and a 13-43-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was TYCHO, who was 
successfully challenged by CUP O'PIZZA who had a mere 30 points more than TYCHO.  
Definition of petty:  CUP O'PIZZA defeated TYCHO, a mismatch of 30 points.  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, GOGO PATROL went after VULGAR, who was 
higher by 21 points.  Well, when the dust settled, GOGO PATROL was overcame by 
VULGAR.  BLAME SULTAN of TERRAPIN STATION had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 9 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought BLAME SULTAN showed 
great skill and promise when it bested TROJAN ROC.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This week 13-9-1 ASHLII was sent 
to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, REVENANT was mashed by 
SAVARE, who let REVENANT know that killing members of DARK CREATION is a no-no.  
Congrats to SIR PLUTZ for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, 
feeding MUTE SCREAM a bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit 
and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Quantum -- I hadn't realized that a quantum was such a SMALL thing.  Odd.  It always
sounds so big and important. -- Lunelle
P.S.  You learn well for a little thing, though.

Silent Knight -- Gods, don't you ever SAY anything?  I might have learned a skill or
two if you'd spoken up and EXPLAINED what you were doing. -- Tycho

Bloody Mary -- I thought you were supposed to be HEALTHY. -- Bailey O'Bead
P.S.  Because of the tomato juice.

Fear Fool -- Are you saying I should fear a fool, which any sensible golem would, of
course?  Or that you're the Fool of Fear as one might be, well, the Sultan of Swing,
perhaps?  Explicate this, if you would be so good. -- Trojan Roc

Hookfang -- (peering into the jaws gaping so close to his throat)  They aren't VERY
hooked.  I bet you could get a dentist to straighten them.  And then lots of

monstresses would be more attracted to you.  Nothing puts off a woman so much as,
well, okay lots of things put 'em off, but crooked teeth ARE on the list. -- Mickey
Mite

Sir Prise -- You will be missed. -- Lunelle
P.S.  Which I suppose is the idea behind retirement.

Tycho -- You're starting to look like a doormat...you know, the kind delivery guys
stand on.  You gonna stand for that???  Or you gonna lay back down?  If I were you...
I'd start to avoid double pepperoni. -- Matrix

Al -- Damn. -- Bane

Rayne -- Sorry man...Q is in the house. -- Q

Sultan -- One and one this turn against each other....  Was Dee more than you
expected?  Al was for Bane. -- Matrix

Pappy -- Got your number. -- Vulgar

Urm -- You are very welcome!  Thought you might enjoy a battle with me. -- Dee

Glad I could help.  After all...it's all about popularity.

Zeus -- Indeed brother, it's great to all be gathered again...back at home.  May your
blades stay sharp. -- Mithril

Ashlii -- Well you surprised me once, then promptly failed again.  This time I've
spoken to arenamaster...don't think your gonna have such an easy night fight this
time around.  If you survive again I promise you this...it will be your last night
match. -- Mithril

Sir Plutz -- Sorry to send Shard down a couple points at you...just can't resist
seeing him fight a warrior of your caliber; thanks for the learns. -- Mithril

Cutthroat -- Give a guy a chance, sheesh!  Don't know how you swung something so big
quite so fast.  Nicely done. -- Wolfraven

Lady Divan -- Thank you for opening my eyes once again to Ashlii's failures. --
Mithril

Vivd Slur -- You should try another weapon, my friend. -- Skel'ran

Mal Ady -- Sorry for the unnecessary drama, but I've been wanting to use that dagger
ever since Assur started making me carry it and that just seemed like the perfect
opportunity.  Plus, I figured the fans might get a kick outta me pulling it out and
finishing the fight with it! -- The Upright Man

Hmmm, I bet the fans would love to see me bring that Roc outta the sky. -- TUM,
always looking for the next crazy stunt for his fans to watch!  After all, this is
about entertainment and winning the fans, right?

Matrix -- Welcome, and welcome.  Competition's where you find it, and if we can
provide a competitive arena for personal score settling...then you're doubly welcome,
and welcome. -- Still

Cyclone -- That's why I'm the house-keeper. -- Gracie

Sugar Magnolia -- I'm just a dancing fool.  da-da diddy-diddy da-da.  (take five,
feet)  And will dance the night away, oh yes, a-wayyyy. -- Run About Ron

All -- Introducing "Balin Bob."  He compliments the compliment.  Took his name from
some incident aboard coming from abroad. -- Still
P.S.  If he never fought abroad, there's no time like the present.  (Groucho!)

Ashlii -- It's Surrey-through-the-Vineyards time, and as time is at a premium...
there's no time. -- Lady Divan

Gutboy Fishfoot -- Fish-Gut Foot-boy, ...Fish-boy? ...wait...what?  that's not right.
I know there's a "Gut" in there.  I distinctly remember the "Gut." -- Ivan

Sultan -- In about 5 turns we'll be running a contest here, hopefully.  You wanna
join CHAOS?  We want you.  The contest will be alliance based...and we'd like to have
you aboard.  You would join Megawarriors, Bloodshed, Devil's Advocate, and our last
pick from our alliance. -- Matrix (CHAOS Rep)

I did send personals last time, honest!  Transmission errors intervened. -- Nick, The
Moondogs

Cup O'Pizza -- It figures, after four fights with you (as far back as my notes go), I
get one with somebody else, and then you're back again.  I hope you go to the tourney
and DIE. -- Tycho
P.S.  Because you'll meet up with lots of warriors there who are better than I am.

Gogo Patrol -- That was a good match.  I love the chance to do brilliant and
masterful parries and all that fancy stuff.  Thanks. -- Lunelle
P.S.  Er... why didn't you learn anything from me?  A parry or a dodge, at least!

Blame Sultan -- EXCELLENT plan!  I will do that.  Thanks for the idea. -- Trojan Roc

Opti-Grab -- Climb fast, because I foresee many fights with you, and getting heartily
tired of it. -- Mickey Mite
P.S.  Stylistically, you're a shoo-in for wins and climbing fast, too.  The gods be
thanked for that!

Art Ery -- Clever name.  But when I cut into you, it made a humongous mess on the
sands.  Maybe you need to take clotting agents before the fights? -- Bailey O'Bead

Sir Realisitc -- Glad to see you made it out of the Infirmary.  Thanks for the
invitation to the sands.  Next time teach me more. -- Slime Giggle

St. Stephen -- Drat!  Your heavenly clouds overcast my wicked sunshine, but great
learns worth the loss! -- Wicked Sunshine

Sir Ebral -- Wow!  These pointy things can really hurt someone.  My reputation is
being tarnished, and I didn't even say a thing. -- Mute Scream

Ivan Mashinaplp -- Sorry, no apples here.  Just fish. -- Gutboy Fishfoot

Skel'Ran -- Replay...smack, smack, smack, smack, smack...Narrator says "The warriors
appear equal in skill."  I'm still disappointing, but did you bribe the ref? -- Vivd
Slur
