                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud"?  What the heck is Snide
getting at with that?
     The Magical Shortcut was easy.  I just drew the fight out into the second
minute because I needed the exercise.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for THUNDERSTONE, who flew up 15 points in 
the rankings after mashing CRANKY OLD COOT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was POLYJUICE TWINS, who dropped 12 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MEGAMANAGER (NOT).  Our battling 
duelmaster BITING FLY has managed to hold the title, fending off 
METHODSOFRATIONALITY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, HARRY POTTER 
AND THE.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DULLENS arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DULLENS 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.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Polyjuice Twins -- Are you as tired of seeing us as we are of seing you? -- Blackhorn
P.S.  I personally figure that if I have to "die" and return, I'm coming back in
Lapur.  More action there.

Slasher -- This does not improve my day, although it would have been worse if you'd
been Methodsofrationality. -- Anvil

Killer -- Good name.  Jorja reckons that fight and death was as random as the one
that took out your teammate, and she says we'll call it even.  Of course, SHE isn't
the one who's dead. -- Ghost of Dog Ears

I never did figure out what the Mordant Salesman was selling.  But I wouldn't have
bought it anyway, so I don't suppose it matters. -- Starflower
