                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, what a great way to return to Aruak City, I must say I feel a bit out of
place as it has been 6 years since I last saw the arena.  It is so wonderful to be
back and we should be staying a while once hanibal decides who is still fit enough
for the arena.  Things don't look good for the current team but since I have proven
myself I hope I'm around for the next few turns anyway.  Everyone else will face the
Dark Arena, I wish the best to them.  Good to see some familiar faces, see you on the
sands!

Serenity

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARUAK 
CITY.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to ANIMAL FARM, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
BULLDOGS stable.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-2 outing, CANNIBALZ has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  BULLDOGS is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 
3rd place to 1st place.  Don't these new hotshots make you sick (or, if they fought 
you, hurt)?  THE HITCHHIKERS, on their very first turn, went 4-1-0.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for ARTHUR DENT, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TIRLA DANCER lost to DRAYTON FLASHSTONE and 
drops 8 points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are 
both the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Drawing on all of his 
experience as a 21-6-0 warrior, BLACK BEE went for the Duelmastership against 
SERENITY this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was ANIMAL FARM's BLACK BEE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by SERENITY. 
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!  
Did you hear that CANNIBALZ was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CANNIBALZ's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be 
funny, but catch BULLDOGS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from CANNIBALZ.   
     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 11-11-1 CREATURE was 
sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  EQUALIZER defied all odds and slew SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena.  
The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SHEWISH GIANT's meat is notoriously 
tough.  DOOM defied all odds and slew HIGH ELF in the Dark Arena.  The only ones 
displeased were the buzzards, as HIGH ELF's meat is notoriously tough.  Ask not the 
elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARUAK CITY 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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Congratulations to Serenity, Duelmaster of Aruak City,  The Heart And Soul Of
Andoria.  It is good to see a warrior return and excel in the arena.  Kudos to The
Cannibalz.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  Bring that manager of yours
on over for a free night of ale just for returning. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Ah, shucks, Serenity!  You lambasted me fair and square and deserve the DM Title.
Salute.  No 5 PPs and immortality champion in Orlando; indeed, you spracked me so
well there were no PPs at all!  I have my work cut out for me just to live.  But, I
just have to say "well done" to you. -- Hound

It is utterly ridiculous how high I have risen in recognition points!  And soooooo
unsafe!  Dang nab it!  And all I did was rap ole Venomous Concubine.  Come on! --
Udder

Whew!  Cowering Coyote, thank the RUGs for you!  I don't think I could have beaten
anyone else high up here in the ranks. -- Minute Steak

Userous Merchant?  Hah!  It was MY turn to rip you off! -- Dogmeat

Now, now, Dogmeat.  That wasn't a nice thing to say.  After all, you ARE a Bulldog.
-- Kennelworth, Manager

Doom -- It was my day to shine.  Welcome back to you guys. -- Cowlick

I just want to congratulate all my Bulldogs for their difficult 4-1 turn.  Sadly, the
most important fight was the loss of the DM Title by Hound, who gave his all, but was
cannibalized. -- Kennelworth

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth

Blimey!  Serenity done be Champeen!  Hip, hip! -- Mino, Animal Farm

     What about knee and ankle?

Tirla Dancer -- It was fun buzzing around with you.  Let's do lunch. -- Black Bee

Creature -- It was MY day.  Some days you get the paprika; some days the paprika gets
you. -- Paprika Puma

Irvin Flete -- I really liked wallowing with you.  Why don't you come along with me

Nasty Elemental -- I think you got in the way of my quills.  Sorry about that.

Tirla, me wench, hain't nay Purple Cows on me critters.  Never ta be.  Nay. -- Mino
P.S.  Added by the AF Publicist -- all critters are alliterated color/animal, 
hence...  But, thanks.

Drayton Flashstone -- Clearly red is the IN color.  Did you have fun, Hon? -- Red
Head, Proud Colorific

Hah, showed that Mino and his weaselly animal creatures a thing or two.  Thinks his
team will pass mine for best record.  I scared my Colorifics into a 4-0!  Beat that,
buster Mino! -- Purple people Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Berlam Foote -- You shouldn't have been watching your foot.  After all, I am... Black
Eye, Proud Colorific

Corvo Black -- You tasted much better this time. -- Purple Passion, Proud Colorific
