                             Notes from the arena champ.

     M. Chardinee?  That's all I get to fight, and the title as a reward (more like a
burden) at the end?  Life is truly confusing.

                                  Sundog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
MALCORN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to INK & STEEL RETRO, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by 
the BLIND MELON stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for PURPLE DRAGON, who flew up 24 
points in the rankings after mashing GOLDEN STAIRS like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GOLDEN STAIRS, who dropped 
18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with PURPLE DRAGON.  Our 
battling duelmaster SUNDOG has managed to hold the title, fending off VETERAN 
MERCENARY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, MALCORN.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     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 BLADES OF DOOM, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause THE DEVIL'S OWN beats feet every time BLADES OF 
DOOM smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this BLACKOAK you ask, with 17 
points and a 4-5-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the MALCORN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

I did tell you, did I not, that I am unsuited to this profession?  To be forced to
associate with the likes of the Venomous Concubine is repugnant to me. -- Golden
Stairs

Luck Devil -- My own feeling is that luck should never be trusted or expected, so I
had no problem dealing with you.  This time, at least. -- Blackoak

Sleepy House -- We give you our thanks.  We did not want that "angel" on our team. --
the rest of the Greenwardens

Drake -- Everyone knows that drakes are bigger and more dangerous than wrens, so how
else could the fight have gone? -- Wren
