                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Kolact,

     First to the de-throned Duelmaster, Hagar.  I didn't challenge anyone this round
and let the cards fall where they may.  Imagine my suprise when I not only get
matched up against you but then I win in a brutal 7 minute fight.  Maybe we can try
it again or one of your teamates.
     Chase never really had much faith in me and he is still in shock.  I was almost
DA'd way back in the day but my manager stayed with me.  I shall soon be joining my
brother Phlegm out in the country.
     Another round or so up here and I'll get my invite.
     I stand humbly as your Duelmaster,
          Demon

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for WIZARDS!, who flew up 11 points in the 
rankings after mashing JERRY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LUNELLE MERRIN was subdued by 
FLATLINERS and drops 8 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was BACON MAKIN''s FRIDAY THE 13TH, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by DEMON.  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 VIKINGS?  Big bad VIKINGS.  Big 
bad VIKINGS.  KOLACT's afraid of the big bad VIKINGS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I 
may not be funny, but catch ABOMINATION's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to 
be fairly deft at running from VIKINGS.  And who is this JERRY you ask, with 27 
points and a 6-9-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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

Demon -- Congratulations on the win and the throne.  I honestly didn't expect that,
but the win was fairly convincing.  You have earned the throne.  And I have earned my
ticket to the Isle.  It seems, however, that I will miss my last fight.  Good luck to
the new Duelmaster and the entire arena! -- Lord Protector, Hagar Bluetooth

Dang, those concubines can be feisty! -- Skyhawk

Friday the 13th -- I am not surprised that I lost.  But I had my chances and just
couldn't land a blow, which I did not expect. -- Ciric

Kolact -- The Vikings will be taking a leave of absence for a while.  We hope to be
back again fairly soon, but such things are unpredictable. -- Vikings

Flatliners -- Don't you hate those kind of losses?!?  Maybe it was my beautiful
golden hair that drew your attention. -- Goldilocks

Lia Hobern -- I love warriors that have glass jaws.  One hit and, "down goes Hobern."
--  The Grinch

Cresdene Arct -- You have almost all but sealed my fate.  One more loss in a row and
off to the DA I shall go. -- G.I. Jane

Zontani Sharp Eyes -- Those aren't panty hose.  They're athletic protectors. -- Demon
(Duelmaster of Kolact)

The Grinch -- Listen, you can have ALL the "seasonal music" that plays in the stores
before the winter solstice.  Burn it. -- Lia Hobern

Footloose -- You probably need to add washers before tightening the bolts. -- Lunelle
Merrin

Tom -- Bad cat! -- Ferrin Mondor

Jerry -- You're even WORSE. -- Simoon Terrat

G.I. Jane -- Managers, what do they know? -- Cresdene Arct
P.S.  You're a fine woman, I can tell.  A bit on the tall side, but for a Shew, this
is not an abomination.

Our congratulations to Hagar Bluetooth. -- Jorja and the Moondogs
