                             Notes from the arena champ.

Riztab,
     It is a great honor for my guild and I to have myself attain the throne on our
first turn back into town.  We apologize for our extended absence... of course, we
had nothing to do with the Candy (who you'll be meeting soon), the boys and I, and
everything to do with our manager.  I'll leave it at that.
     Donnamira, I was a little rusty, you were just plain bad.  To be fair I do have
a few tourney fights under my belt (22 or so), so getting beat by a warrior with so
many fewer fights shouldn't make you feel so bad.  That longsword did not feel
weighted quite right, I'll have to get on the guild workers about that.  I've chosen
to challenge Lorimera this turn for the right to be king.  Since I have such a high
opinion of myself I'll be shocked and awed if I lose.
     Many of us will be representing our fine city in the coming tourney-- here's to
honor and success for those representing all of us!  Bring home glory back to our
great home!  That's it for this week, all!

                                      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!.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of 
losers, lets take a look at SEA DOGS, who went down to 3rd from 8th.  Life is tough.  
Coming up with a solid 2-1-0 outing, TEAM MARIO has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for WHERE, who flew up 24 points in the rankings 
after mashing ANTIPHON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was ANTIPHON, who dropped 21 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with WHERE.  Unlike most arenas, TWISTED CLOWN managed to get his 
challenge off against the 12-8-0 LORIMERA.  Our battling duelmaster TWISTED CLOWN has 
managed to hold the title, fending off LORIMERA's none too subtle advances.  Better 
luck next time, SWEET MAGIC.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SWEET  MAGIC?  Big bad SWEET 
MAGIC.  Big bad SWEET MAGIC.  RIZTAB's afraid of the big bad SWEET MAGIC.  Tra la la 
la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ALL 
HALLOW'S EVE beats feet every time SWEET MAGIC smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JOHN COLTRANE would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, HERBIE HANCOCK went after WHO, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, HERBIE HANCOCK lost to WHO.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  It's not often when you see a 9-2-0 warrior 
like ALBATROSS kick the bucket.  I wonder if SEA DOGS will recover from the blow.  
And who needs the Dark Arena if you've got BLACK HEART around?  This week he 
decorated his armor with ALBATROSS.  Who's next?  Congrats to WHERE for revenging the 
death of its teammate (but more importantly, feeding ANTIPHON a bit of dirt).  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 RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Twisted Clown -- Yes, well, ask me if I care, huh?  I'm out of here and glad of it,
and the let-down of that....  At least you got the title on a genuine win instead of
by default.  Good job. -- Donnamira

Devar's a good fight.  I like winning. -- Lorimera

Devar the *Traitor* is RIGHT.  A hairy little creep, that's what he is.  We had an
understanding, but he TURNED ON ME.  Wait'll he tastes his arsenic-dusted cream
puffs, the rotten pig. -- Jaylene Mokhar
