                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Another win!  Whew!  Now all I need are three more political points.  Can I live
that long?  I hope, I hope, I hope.
     I wonder how Aruak City's reps in The Mailer did?  I'll bet we had some good
ones.  Those Furry Furys always come through.  I am hoping for some good news from my
own team, also.  Did anyone else from The Heart And Soul of Andoria enter?
     It looks like it is me and Kaniliv Kat for the title.  Personally, I hope the
Kat doesn't fight, because it would be no contest.  That is one finely skilled
animal!
     Good luck to all.  May your Halloween have been filled with treats.
                   Rose Rooster, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  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.  
Hey everybody, watch out for BERLAM FOOTE, who flew up 26 points in the rankings 
after mashing WOOF WOOF like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WOOF WOOF was beat by BERLAM FOOTE and 
drops 21 points.  It's a proud day for the THE HITCHHIKERS stable, as their warrior, 
MARVIN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE ASSEMBLY, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does ARUAK CITY really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch BULLDOGS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from THE ASSEMBLY.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of SHADOW MEERKAT, who 
was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, TAPIK went after CORVO BLACK, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the 
dust settled, TAPIK was defeated by CORVO BLACK.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering FORD PREFECT as he was driven to an early grave by BULL MOOSE 
of the BULLDOGS.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     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

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Heart And Soul of Andoria calls. -- Kennelworth

Congratulations to Animal Farm's Rose Rooster, repeat Duelmaster of Aruak City.
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth

Wilbert Frue -- It was my pleasure to bestow a dog's life onto you.  Enjoy it. -- A
Dog's Life

Tiny Meerkat -- It is always a pleasure to defeat one of your skill and ability.  I
hope The Grimm One has you perfectly placed for The Mailer.  Good luck. -- Cowlick
(feelin' goooooood)

Berlam Foote -- I sorta bulled my way through.  I'm not much for playin' footsie.
(wink) -- Bull Moose

Slartibartfast -- All I can say is that Buffalo Bob would have been proud. --
Cowabunga!

A BIG 4-0 for my Colorifics!  Beat that, Mino, you oaf of a manager!  Critters SUCK!
-- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Benjy Mouse -- Huhahuhahuha.  I had you seeing red at the first whistle, you rhodent!
-- Red Eye, Proud Colorific winner

Khalhum's Dwarf -- The Commission sure gave me an easy one.  Why do they let those of
your ilk fight?  But, ya know, I like 'em easy! -- Black Eye, Proud Colorific winner

Dangerous Criminal -- Take a back seat to the master.  You've got a lot to learn,
Kid. -- Silver Hair, Proud Colorific winner

This'n ole pirate bea proud 'o ye, Rooster.  Aye. -- Mino

Aruak City -- Many apologies for sitting out the last round, most of my gladiators
needed to wait for the tourney.  I have since learned of this new mysterious method
of submitting personal ads that does not involve sending them through the post with
your fighting strategy... ah, the things you learn as a returning manager!  To those
we fought last round, we appreciate the competition and look forward to our future
battles! -- Froot E. Bowl

Kennelworth -- I can say that the Assembly doesn't strive to kill, but as you know
unfortunately it happens at times (as the ghosts of a few warriors fighting in the
Dead Tourney could attest). -- F.E. Bowl

Woof Woof -- That was just the teaser.  What did you give ME? -- Berlam Foote

Tickle Me Tiger -- You can do that (the tickling part) to me any time!  If I get to
tickle you back, anyway. -- Georgie Boy, feeling a little smitten

Marvin -- Hmm.  Instead of Swervin' Irvin, are you Carvin' Marvin?  I was glad of the
win, in any case. -- Corvo Black
P.S.  And being spared the slobbery attention of Cowlick, or the bruising Black Eye.

Bull Moose -- I thought you'd be bigger. -- Berlam Foote
P.S.  Maybe you're only a calf moose?

A Dog's Life -- But not a dog I'd care to take for a walk. -- Wilbert Frue
