                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I do not appreciate that "all-hands" approach, Mickey.  No woman does.  But I
suppose you did the best you could with what you had to work with.

                                   Grim Laughter

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
DULLENS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for GRAY BEAR, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing TEX IMPERSONATOR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ARROGANT BASTARD lost to FLOYD 
CASTAWAY and drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, MICKEY HANDS took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     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!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
