                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Mac the Spoon, I have to say that fight was amazing.  If one can call it a
fight.  I'm glad you didn't die.  And, while the rating may have been the critical
factor, I'm more inclined to think it was the political points that got me my
Invitation to the Isle.  (Details will be published if anyone really wants to know.)

                                       Oriola

                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, BLUE NOTE 
has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TAFFY, who flew 
up 14 points in the rankings after mashing AEDESIA like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  AEDESIA was 
subdued by TAFFY and drops 10 points.  Our battling duelmaster ORIOLA has managed to 
hold the title, fending off WHERE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
GUESSING GAME.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the RIZTAB giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

Taffy -- Yes, I was just after skills.  I am not so special, and poor Grimm can't
figure out how to run me.  So, maybe if you can teach we can make up for his short-
comings. -- Mud Mud, don't I just have the cutest name.

Oriola -- Grats on the throne.  I am maintenance style this turn, so if we match up
please give me back the throne as I want to join you on the Isle.  BTW I think
reactine helps with teh hives. -- Itchy Froggy

All -- Not sure who I am running from here at the face, but good luck to you all.  I
very much like this arena, so I like seeing success for us. -- Grimm

Eleventh -- Us ugly land toads can be a real problem. -- Kane Toad

Mac the Spoon -- Oh my spear has pretty teeth dear. -- Itchy

Herbie Hancock -- I don't know why it is that we keep thinking of you as a haddock.
You really aren't that fishlike.  At least, so long as you don't stand around with
your mouth open.  But it was a fight I liked, you know?  Thank you. -- Teresianna

Aedesia -- Bad match for you!  Better spend a little less time dreaming and more time
being "nice" to the handicapper. -- Nelli Politana
P.S.  He's not so bad, really.

Ella Fitz and Blue Note -- Genuinely sorry about that.  It was not intentional. --
Koko Leah
P.S.  One of the few things that even chocolate can't cure.

Proclus -- Again, an unfair match, such as your teammate Aedesia had.  But I just
realized that this means we had a FIVE-OH turn!  That's amazing.  We're going to
throw a party at our place, and everyone's invited. -- Taffy
