                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hah!  I showed you all!  I can beat silly aimed-blow types, too!  Kung-Fu Master
goes plop in the slop!  Yes!  Thank you for my 29th win, Kung-Fu; it may have been
sloppy, but it tasted sooooo good!
     I have little else to add, except that, like everyone else, I hope I can
graduate and get outta here soon.  Yeah, baby!

                                      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.  ANIMAL FARM now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Advancing in the rankings was BULLDOGS who went 
from last turn's 1199-835-38, to this week's record of 1203-836-38.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for IRVIN FLETE, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after mashing GOLDEN 
TONGUE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was GOLDEN TONGUE, who dropped 26 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with IRVIN FLETE.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  PURPLE PIG made a challenge against TIRLA DANCER this week.  Going 
for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was KRILL CAVALRY's TIRLA 
DANCER, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by PURPLE PIG.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARUAK CITY arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad KRILL CAVALRY?   Big bad KRILL CAVALRY. 
Big bad KRILL CAVALRY.  ARUAK CITY's afraid of the big bad KRILL CAVALRY.  Tra la la 
la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ANIMAL FARM's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from KRILL CAVALRY.  Well dang howdy, but 
if challenges were votes, LIBBY would be president.  Although it may be a contest she 
doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 8-7-0 WHITE HAIR was sent to the 
Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of 
this.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Congratulations again to Duelmaster Purple Pig.  Duelmasters drink free at The
Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Let me at him, boss!  Let me at him!  I wanna get that Khalhums Dwarf for killing my
teammate Cow-Ard.  I want him! -- Dogmeat

Now, now, Dogmeat, you must know we cannot bloodfeud those stand-in NPCs. They know
not what they do.  We will miss Cow-Ard, however, who was 4-0 at the time and a 14-7-
10-17-9-10-17 great damage striker.  (sigh) -- Kennelworth

Dora -- Go be an explorer and leave me alone! -- Bull Moose

Berlam Foote -- Not only did you defeat me, but you messed up my hair to boot!
Naughty, naughty. -- Cowlick

Irvin Flete -- I feel better now that I wasn't put in the can. -- Dogmeat

Venomous Concubine -- I love tussling with you and coming out on top.  If I can just
win one more fight, I may get LP status next time.  I need it badly.  I do. -- Udder

All -- Not a good round for my Bulldogs at 2-3-1, and Cow-Ard will be missed. --
Kennelworth

Happy New Year to all.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Aye!  Bloody fine!  Me Pig done bea Duelmaster agin.  Aye! -- Mino

Captured Orc -- You have to get up with the roosters if you want to beat me, Buster.
-- Cherry Chicken

     Roosters get up too early.  I'd rather sleep in. -- Geroge Kor, Orc du Jour

Siolazeela -- I am proud of that win for I hear you are a great warrior.  Salute! --
Purple Pelican

Harline Flete -- I salute you for you were my better this day. -- Rose Rooster

Me critters bea catchin' yon colorifics.  Aye.  3-1!  Purple People Eater gonna walk
yon plank.  Aye. -- Mino

Three-2?!  Two losses for the proud Colorifics?!  STINKS!  White Hair, I have been
threatening and threatening to send you to the DA and you lose for the 4th time to an
NPC?  Mordant Deserter, M. Chardinee (twice) and Venomous Concubine?  Your 13-9-11-
15-9-10-17 hosed-damage, blessed endurance and riposte unruly hair is outta here! --
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Venomous Concubine -- I don't see what White Hair's problem was with you, because I
found you easy. -- Golden Tongue, Proud Colorific

Khalhum's Dwarf -- You suck!  I win! -- Purple Passion, Proud Colorific

Emma, Emma, Emma, I wish you hadn't done that. -- Red-Eye, Proud Colorific

Corvo Black -- I am the true black!  Go back home to momma. -- Black Eye, Proud
Colorific

Arthur Dent -- This is the beginning of one of THOSE turns, isn't it? -- Tirla Dancer

Dogmeat -- Yep, Tirla had it pegged.  Good fight. -- Irvin Flete

Cowlick -- Euwh.  I wouldn't want a cow to lick ME. -- Berlam Foote

Black Eye -- (deleted) -- Corvo Black

Rose Rooster -- I learned not to trust a rooster.  Also, you needed me to knock you
down a peg or two in the rankings. -- Harline Flete
