                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was true magic going on.  How else do you explain the fact that I lose to
the DM, Green Thumb, and am still able to obtain the title?  How does Gray Matter not
get it?  I have a horrible record but I have been a lot better lately except for
fighting Mr. Thumb.  If I get my invite, Dartor will have graduated every style from
this team, so hopefully this happens soon.  I'm not challenging so will see who I
get. -- Cinderella Man

                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  COLORIFIC now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  It was a tough week for IMMORTALS, to drop 4 
places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, DREAD EMPIRE has 
advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TINY MEERKAT, who 
flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing HARLINE FLETE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was PAPRIKA PUMA, who 
dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KUNG-FU MASTER.  
What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most 
challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  YELLOW FEVER got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt it was more than anxious to kick CINDERELLA MAN's 
tail out of the throne!  In front of all the crowds, YELLOW FEVER took the 
Duelmaster's crown for its own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 ARUAK CITY arena.  Did 
you hear that IMMORTALS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of IMMORTALS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  IMMORTALS + Weapons That go Boom = ANIMAL FARM + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 ARUAK CITY 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

Tirla Dancer -- Now, that was a real tussle.  Back and forth for four eye-popping
rounds.  I was lucky to win, and very, very lucky to learn all those skills.  Thank
you. -- Hound

Harline -- It only takes a minute for a rare finish! -- Minute Steak

Oh, my, Krill Cavalry!  I didn't mean to; really!  I tried to hit his leg, but...!
Oh, my!  May Arnalt Foote fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky.  And him with
such a neat name.  I am sorry. -- Udder (utterly depressed)

Krill Cavalry -- Allow us all to offer our condolences. -- Kennelworth and The
Bulldogs

Congratulations, Dartor, for Cinderella Man's ascension to the throne.  Duelmasters
drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

On a separate note, Dartor, when I saw the match up of Drayton with Dogmatic, I
anticipated bad things for The Bulldog.  Drayton is a fine striker with far more
experience and skill.  And Dogmatic is/was really not much, despite his lucky fine
record.  He was birthed as a 13-12-12-16-10-14-7 basher with the blessing of great
damage.  He learned at a poor rate of 1.0 per fight.  After all, he did lose to M.
Chardinee just before Drayton Flashstone offed him.  Nevertheless, he will be missed.
If I were you, I would not expect much in the way of an attempted bloodfeud.  Maybe,
but probably not. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  Most of his teammates and other arena folk did not like his attitude.  It was,
indeed, troublesome.

Cautionary Orc -- Despite my luck in our last fight, I did not want to match with
you.  Dang!  Well fought and congrats. -- Dogmeat (feeling it)

Ski Bums -- Congrats on your fine point gain!  Hubba, hubba. -- Kennelworth

And a big "glad to see ya" to both the Ski Bums II and the Snugglebunnies.  Welcome
to Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of Andoria.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. --
Kennelworth

Ahoy ye, maties!  Bloody fine ter see Snugglebunnies 'n Ski Bums.  Aye. -- Mino (and
his critters of Animal Farm)

I am not fit to be a Critter.  Dangerous Criminal spracked me!  TWICE!!!  Send me
back to the 'crick", Mino. -- Claret Crawdad

Bzzzzzzzzz.  I love Gumdrops!  Ummm.  Ummm. -- Black Bee

Mr. Kung-Fu Master -- You shouldn't have sneezed.  That gave me all the opening I
wanted. -- Paprika Puma

     You shouldn't have thrown pepper in my face. -- a humble practicioner of Zong
     Kung Fu

Irvin Flete -- Well, you were there above me, and I felt the challenge, even though
that was two in a row.  I take my slop any way I can get it.  (No, I am not calling
you slop.) -- Purple pig

Tom Sawyer -- When I saw my match up with you, I felt fear.  I was worried you might
whap me and toss me in the Mississippi.  Whew!  I was L U C K Y ! -- Khaki Krait

Yo ho ho!  Gratters ter me matey, Cindereller Man, Champeen 'o Aruak City.  Aye. --
Mino

Cinderella Man -- YOU are Duelmaster?  Why, you couldn't hold Dartar's glass
slippers!  I belittle you twice in a row and you are Duelmaster?  What is Aruak City
coming to?  I am glad I retired.  Sheesh! -- Green Thumb, Proud Colorific (DM V and
winning it on the way to The Isle)

Convicted Assassin -- You were so easy that I was looking for your purse and the
spoils while you were down and out. -- Gray Matter, Proud Colorific

What!  I am not Duelmaster?!  You curs!  I beat Fuzzball into a powder puff and that
loser old-timer Cinderella gets the crown?  Humpf! -- Yellow Fever, Proud Colorific

You are right, Yellow Fever.  I shall be reaming out The Commission about this! --
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Red Head and Purple Passion -- You LOSERS!  You do not belong on this Colorific team.
If I get hungry.... -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

But, but, but that Snugglebunny Doodlebug cheated.  He did! -- Purple Passion, Proud
Colorific

Kennelworth -- I am doubtful Shy will do much, but I figure he will do much better in
the Champs than Challengers.  That would be ugly. -- Grimm

Udder -- Thanks, I still have no idea why I am a Meerkat. -- Tiny Meerkat

Arnalt Foote -- One thing for me is I lived.  I have lost so many friends on these
sands. -- Caniliv Kat

Furry Fury is pushing back to .500.  For a while there I was embarassed to say I knew
these warriors. -- Grimm

Cinderella Man -- Grats on the throne, big guy.  Don't dirty it up. -- Grimm

Hound -- I probably shouldn't tell you this and give you a swelled head, but I love
hearing you sing. -- Tirla Dancer

Purple Pig -- I can, barely, stand you being purple, but the pink flowers behind your
ears are over the top. -- Irvin Flete

Minute Steak -- I think you must need two minutes, you were too tough at one. --
Harline Flete

Udder -- Damn.  That was a short career. -- Ghost of Arnalt Foote

Red Head -- You again!  Is it temper that keeps you coming back, or are you really
hot for me? -- Corvo Black
