     "This is very strange."
     Cresdene Arct looked up at her teammate.  "What's strange?"
     Ferrin Mondor turned over the newsletter to check the other side.  "We're Top
Team," he said.  "I don't get that.  Ten-three?  How the heck did we pull that one
off?"
     Cresdene opened her mouth to make what was obviously going to be a cutting
comment.
     Lia Hobbern spoke first.  "In the usual way.  We paid attention, practiced, did
things right.  It does happen, even to us."
     "And the moon is waxing," Terrine Orbin added.
     Everyone looked at the newest member of the team.  Skepticism was thick in the
air.
     "It's a positive time, a time for increase," she insisted.  "Everyone knows
that!  The Farmers Almanac says--"
     There was a general relaxation around the table.  "Oh, the Farmers Almanac."
Lia nodded.  "That's okay."
     "Just don't get mixed up with any astrologers!" Ferrin warned her.  "Those guys
are crazy."
     Lunelle raised her eyebrows.  "Where do you think the Almanac gets its stuff?"
     "Not from--"
     "And it says that Sirius will be on the meridian this evening, too!" Terrine
went on.  "We should go out and look."
     Everyone stared at her.  "Why?" Ferrin asked.
     "Well, it's obvious!  Sirius is the Dog Star, and we're the Moondogs and want to
be stars.  Where else would we turn?"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm duelmaster again, and I seem to recall Lia promising to make me breakfast.
          --- Flatliners the hungry Duelmaster

                                      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!  Say 
good-bye to THE MOONDOGS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
ABOMINATION stable.  It looks like the guys(?) at GLORY HOUNDS had a good week as 
they went 4-1-0 to put them in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for CAPRICA, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing FERRIN 
MONDOR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  TROG was bested by ADDAI and drops 18 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal FLATLINERS moved his record to 24-11-1 by defeating LUNELLE MERRIN in 
the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 14 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KOLACT arena.  Did you 
hear that BACON MAKIN' was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of BACON MAKIN''s warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause AVENGERS beats feet every time BACON MAKIN' 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of CAPTAIN 
AMERICA, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Well, it looks like VINDICATOR 
wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 28 points. 
No guts, no glory.  To the crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', TOM was taken out 
by the lower-ranked VINDICATOR.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark Arena?).   
     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 KOLACT 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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Caprica -- That was a most excellent bashing.  I'm glad that I taught you nothing. --
Wild Things

Wizards! -- Nice try, but you aren't ready for the chair yet. -- Flatliners

Tremors -- I wouldn't have thought a guy with your problem would choose to be a
gladiator.  All that shaking... makes it hard to grip a weapon, doesn't it? --
Lunelle Merrin

Captain America -- Well, you surely came out of the past!  What's up? -- Cresdene
Arct

Footloose -- Well, it was suggested that I try gluing your feet to the ground, and by
golly, it worked.  Sure, the "ground" in question was loose sand, but I guess having
several pounds of sand grains glued to each foot can be a handicap. -- Lia Hobern

Steel-hand Harnak, Dwarf of Khalhums and other places -- Getting a little rusty,
aren't you? -- Ferrin Mondor

Wasp -- Ah... you hang out with... I think it was Antman, graduated from Jurine a few
years ago.  Good try for someone so, um, out of practice. -- Terrine Orbin
